For verification, don't flash in Wally World. As long as a concealed weapon stays concealed, it is okay. Most managers won't ask you to leave, even if you do flash.... Scott

Suppose you own a gun store and get a bad vibe about a customer, or cannot get a positive response on a background check. My choice would be to decline to sell him the gun, for personal reasons as well as liability. I guarantee you liability considerations are driving this. As long as ignorant redneck juries in states like mine (Alabama) continue to award astronomical punitive damages against big companies, you will see this. Companies will look at the risk for doing certain activities and decide it isn't worth it. Wal-Mart has decided that the liability and PR risk in a Columbine situation traced back to a gun bought at a WM, even legally, is not worth it. Eventually they will get out of the gun business.

In AZ wall mart lost a law suit prohibiting carrying concealed or any other way in their stores.

Under federal law, if authorities cannot complete a criminal background check on a gun buyer within three business days, retailers are allowed to hand over the weapon even though the buyer's status is unclear.

Many FFL's already do this. I've never gotten an approval from NICS, so I've encountered this several times. I finally found a dealer who will, so since then I've used them for my (few) purchases and recommended him to my friends. It's good to see a dealer stand-up to the BATF, but when many (most?) small-time dealers won't sell a firearm under those conditions, I can understand why a potential large law-suit target wouldn't want to either.z

Apparently this is thanks to our old friends from "Americans for Gun Safety", the "reasonable" gun control people! [url]http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/cgi-bin/PrintStory.pl?document_id=134486766&zsection_id=268448413&slug=guns03&date=20020703[/url]
Americans for Gun Safety, a moderate gun-control group in Washington, found in a recent study that over 2-1/2 years, 10,000 felons and others banned from owning a gun were able to purchase weapons because their background checks could not be completed in three days. A similar congressional study last month confirmed widespread cracks in the system. In an April letter, Americans for Gun Safety appealed to Wal-Mart and other large retailers that sell firearms to adopt a "don't know, don't sell" policy that would go beyond federal law. The Wal-Mart memo lays out the policy : If a store receives a "delayed" response from federal or state authorities who conduct the background checks on potential buyers, "do NOT transfer the firearms until you receive a proceed. To restate, you MUST have a 'proceed' (no matter how long it takes) before any firearm is transferred to a Customer."

I went to the local Walmart and inquired about ammo after hearing about this and they told me to bugger off. [:(]

Another reason I'm pleased I don't shop WalMart. WalMart just plain sucks! Haven't been there in years, driving by one sickens me.
