Let's not start a big pissing match, just list a company you think gun owners should NOT support, and why.


Please keep it civil

Wal-mart   Kicked my MP buddy out of the store in full gear, with badge and state issued CCW. Said wal-mart policy  is no guns on property owned by wal-mart. Unless you are "LOCAL"  LEO.


No signs posted anywhere that i could see. So i still carry. But what they don't see wont hurt them.

Some Costco stores have an anti-CCW policy.

(Though the one by me has no sign posted)

A question for all of you yahoos who say Wal-Mart has asked them to leave because of CCW:  Why in the hell did they even know you had a gun on you?  I ALWAYS pack a concealed gun into Ghetto-Mart, and so does my wife.  And nobody has ever said a thing.  It's too damn dangerous to shop at Ghetto-Mart without a strap. Do you guys run up to the manager and tell them you have a gun?

That had to be the individual store manager.  I got an assistant manager of a Walmart in Savannah shitcanned for pulling that shit.  Rather than argue with him, I went home and called Walmart HQ in Arkansas.  They said it was NOT company policy and told me the store manager's name.  He was pissed and had me point the asshole out.  He was gone.

Today computers can do just that. A computer can't make the ultimate call, but they can narrow the work down to a point where manual examination is feasible. ATF is now making this computer technology available to police authorities around the country through the National Integrated Ballistics Identification Network (NIBIN). This network is a joint effort between ATF and the FBI to provide the latest technology to our state and local partners. Under this arrangement ATF will be responsible for the ballistics technology and the FBI will provide the computer network that will join the state and local systems together. Currently this provides a valuable tool for law enforcement authorities that will allow us to associate a suspect or a firearm with seemingly unrelated crimes. The future of this technology offers even greater potential. ATF is currently conducting a pilot project with Glock, wherein they will capture digital image a test fire shell casing for handguns they manufacture. That image will be associated with the serial number of the firearm in a computer database. Later if a shell casing is recovered at a crime scene it could be compared against the Glock database. This comparison could lead to the identification of the exact weapon that fired the round. Without ever recovering a firearm ATF could then trace the weapon used in the crime.

Be awful damn glad his chain of command didn't find out.  Wearing of MP gear off duty and off post would result in UCMJ action. Carrying a pistol at the same time (CCW or not) would have landed him in the stockade.

That is not Wal-Marts company policy, that is an asshat managers policy. A Wal-Mart here posted no handguns signs last year around Christmas, I sent an email to their HQ about it and got a reply back within a day. It basically said that if it's legal to carry in your area it's fine with them, I went back that evening and the store had removed the signs. This same thing happened with Home Depot a year or two ago, some store (in TN I believe) put up signs prohibiting firearms. The rumor mill cranked up and got a lot of people thinking that it was a company policy when in reality it was a local manager that made the policy.

Wouldn't it be easier to just list the FEW corporations and celebs who DO support the 2nd Ammendment? If people want to read endless lists of anti's and choose not to ever patronize them, that's fine with me. I don't have the time for it. Yeah, when one (like Leatherman) comes to my attention, I'll do what I feel is right (usually depends on the "level" of the offending action by said company). But you gotta admit that in reality WE gun-nuts are about the only people in the the world who really care about our gun rights... right?

John, not entirely true. While MP and active duty regs used to stipulate that BDU's should not be worn off post unless going to or from home with no stops in between, this may have been changed at some point.

MP's do have a five mile jurisdiction zone outside the post fence and can arrest in that zone while on duty. They can also travel farther in unifrom and armed on business to collect active duty personel, such as AWOL sevice members. I have also seen roving patrols travel outside the post 10 miles or more in an Army MP vehicle to take care of personal business (maybe, maybe not - not sure) while in uniform and armed. But this was 20 years ago. Things may have changed.

Heck, I got picked up from the Clarksville PD drunk tank by armed MP's after being picked up in a bar for PI. No charges and I got released to a very pissed 1SG. But, he loved me and we made up later. The latrines and brass never looked better after a month of cleaning by me...... I did a lot of extra duty......

I know an Air Force SP that wished he had his sidearm while off post and off duty when he got shot by a guy he arrested a few days before. He was only shot in the leg, but that really sucks....

That's funny, they didn't mind my MP ass walking around in one of their stores on the outskirts of NO during Katrina cleanup.  Or the squad of FA MP's that I was attached to with their M16's  If I recall correctly, we had gotten there after closing but they let us in anyway.  Maybe they just liked the extra security
