    Stand in the front of a Walmart.... watch what people come out with.... they decided we don't matter.
    If the grocery store I frequent does the same....I still gotta eat.
    You gotta shop somewhere.... at some point you won't be able to boycott everything that's against us.
    Let's hope that all stores don't fold to the same left wing lunacy.

    I think what we (the pro-2A folks) need to do is somehow find out what tactics the Liberals are using to convince the retail stores to cave in against open carry and we need to turn their game back at them. We need to identify something that the Liberals need or want to have with them at all times which could be shown to cause harm to people then go after getting major retailers to prohibit people from bringing those items into their stores using the same persuasion that the Liberals are using. The Liberals have declared war upon us and it's time for us to learn our enemy and start our counterattacks! If we sit back and allow this to keep happening unopposed, they will eventually roll over us and make it so we are unable to carry in any businesses or at least open carry (where legal) in any businesses. I am going to continue to concealed carry where I want within Florida law and Federal law. In Florida, signage does not carry the force of law.

    Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS are banning open carry of FIREARMS. I live in Georgia where there is no distinction between concealed or open carry. The license is just a "Carry License" so either is normally permitted. The businesses aren't prohibiting concealed carry, at least until the next step kicks in and they install metal detectors at the front doors with sub-70 IQ morons to enforce their edict.

    In the meantime, maybe all of us should start rebelling and putting those stores to the test just by going in whether we shop or have no intentions of purchasing. What would they do or say if we open carried long swords or sabers...sheathed or unsheathed? It isn't a firearm being open carried so there IS compliance.

    Would they then extend their demands from firearms to knives, to swords, to sabers, to baseball bats, to tire thumpers, or anything they deemed as deadly? Would it make them stop selling kitchen cutlery, sharp tools like screwdrivers and gardening equipment inside the store?

    I'm all for pushing the envelope to the limits and making life miserable for them in different ways.

    What say yee? Any other ideas to jam it as far up where the sun doesn't shine of the almighty board of Directors as possible?

    I've thought about making custom holsters for 'em and open carrying bricks into the post office, gov't buildings, airports, etc......no laws against it, no restrictions on 'em and they'll pass through metal detectors. Best thing about 'em......you could take out 1000 bad guys with the same brick and never have to reload.

    well it may matter to some , but in the case of Walgreens, I got insurance so it cost me the exact same thing IF I get my scrips from Walgreen, CVS, Kroger, Wally world or Joe's phamacy.
    but as this seems quite timely , my local Rite -Aid was about 3 months ago bought out by Walgreens, the Rite aid was top notch as to the pharmacy.
    WALGREENS is simply the pitts, lost prescriptions, 3-4 day wait on called in scrips, rude people, lomg lines and general lack luster custiomer service.
    so I already decided that Wally Greens is in the same boat as wally world--I ain't going there any more!
    so there- take that.

    I don't go to Walgreens or most of those places anyway, besides I CC all the time. So if they don't have a state approved sign at the entrance telling me they don't allow guns, then I don't care what they say their policy is. When it comes to Walmart in my area they just want you to be licensed.
