    What comes into question is the legality side of it, from my understanding policy does not trump law, but seeing as it's a private business, are they able to actually "stop" you from carrying in their stores?

    Another weird thing about it, they only seem to care if it's open carry and not concealed carry which is strange to me.

    Thanks for the read, replies, and help.
    Yep!!
    it a PRIVATELY OWNED Company, just like your house to rights to regulate what comes and goes there by YOU!
    public areas are regulate by law and some Government areas.
    the open carry restrictions I understand is to make the Sheep people more comfortable not knowing all you Savages are amongst them carrying those evil guns, if its concealed its out of sight out of mind.
    Nothing more to see, just move along folks.

    I do really, really like seeing the 340 pound lady wearing those furry house shoes with 7 lil snotty nosed kids tagging along and her wearing her Ruger Blackhawk in a hip holster though!
    I am going to miss that when visiting Wally World myself!

    Walmart doesn't allow open carry because a lot of People are alarmed by it, concealed carry is fine.
    They wouldn't have said anything to Your friend if He wasn't open carrying, which by the way I think is Someone just trying to show off and making themselves a bigger target for bad Guys in the process.
    To the gun grabbers:
    What kind of malicious intent do You have towards Me that makes You fear the fact that I may have a firearm.

    Although Ohio is technically a northern state, their gun laws are as permissive (or in some cases more permissive) than some southern states. There is no state or city registration here either, and if it's legal to possess under federal law, it's usually legal in Ohio. As far as Walmart's in Ohio, even though open carry is legal under state law, if they see you open carrying in their store they can ask you to leave and if you don't you could be charged with criminal trespass. All this started when some guy open carried an AR into a Walmart soon after the Walmart mass shooting in El Paso.

    Yeah, i can't get him to understand why it's a bad idea. Half the time he doesn't even keep them chambered.

    If you walk into someone house smoking a cigarette, and they say sorry,no smoking allowed. They have every right to throw your ass out! It’s private property man. Show a little respect

    I pretty much limit my shopping to local stores that allow dogs, it just avoids a lot of hassle. If they allow dogs, they have no problem with guns and there's a slim chance they'd be crooked. Dogs sense these things in people and they'll tip you off, crooks never allow dogs in their stores.

    "open carry" anyone can carry, even a felon, "concealed carry" only people that have been backgrounded with clean records can obtain a permit. Out of the two; which do you think is safer in your store?

    We have constitutional carry in Kentucky, so if you can legally own a gun, you can concealed carry without a permit.
    I pretty much only conceal carry, i'd say objectively concealed carry is safer by far. Sure it's a deterrent before anything bad happens, but it also makes a priority if something is going to happen.

    Oh, that's funny. Many years ago I fled San Francisco for Kentucky. I went to a small gun shop before they opened. Two Kentucky boys were sitting on the tailgate spitting dip and playing with guns. One appeared to be an Uzi. I guess I was staring, but they offered me a look and handle. It was great. When the store opened, I got a piece of free advice from one of them-"git them damn California plates off that car as soon as you can, boy."

    I still live in Kentucky.
