Walgreens, CVS, Target and Meijers just joined Kroger and Walmart asking customers to not open carry in their stores.

I just read today that 30,000 people openly carried guns in Walmart since the asked people not to and none of them were asked not to by employees.

Why carry openly? Makes other people nervous, doesn't help keep the public on the side of gun owners.

I agree with James. I carry everywhere. No one knows it.

Not fond of open carry. A clerk behind a counter - yes. A pharmacist - yes. Even a banker, but I doubt that would be allowed. Not their money anyway.

While I understand the right to do so, I've never been a fan of attracting such attention to my self for doing so. I mean seriously who does not ever look at the person open carrying and ask why that need here ?

I would agree that in certain areas of commerce, it might be a great show of changing one's mind about trying to rob or take over the place, if you know that your going to get shot back at. Seeing as most of these place's don't seem to be taking any other kind of preventive matters until after the fact which to me is a lawsuit waiting to happen !

On the flip side, it does no good for a concealed carrier to do so if they pattern their carry, it's as much open as the other, this has always been important to me when carrying !

I always felt it was too "In Your Face", ESPECIALLY long guns.

I conceal carry and remember when open carrying was very common. Sometimes there's young adults who can't even apply for a ccw due to age, but can openly carry. Here ccw allows you to carry in more places than open carry.

Cops open carry, why not citizens? I don't understand why people, especially gun owners, are so against this. It's almost as a person is thought of as bad/criminal, even by gun owners, for open carrying. I myself am for Constitutional carry. No permit required to carry open or concealed. Maybe I see the 2nd and the people who participate in that right in the simplest form as the amendment is written. Don't agree with the group that places stipulations like it must be concealed carry to exercise this right. Now if one is looking for the element of surprise concealed is the way to go.
As for store policy, it's their business do with it as you wish. However, if you turn it into a political statement not supporting the second, as Walmart has done, don't expect me to spend my dollars at your place of business.

Firearms are PART of a cop's duty uniform, I've never seen a cop out of uniform open carry. Missouri has always been open carry, since 1821 when we entered the Union, and any citizen has the right to "tote iron" if they feel like it, however, you can't walk into an urban area 7-11 or Quick Shop packing, and not have your life get very exciting, very quickly. When it was legal I went with a Florida CCW permit, because I didn't feel like having St. Louis Co, know I was carrying or even HAD a firearm.

Bigbob does it bother you to see someone open carry? It's legal here but you don't see it often. However when I do it doesn't bother me. Most people conceal carry to not draw unwanted attention or to have that element of surprise. However for those who open carry, have at it. You may feel it's Part of your duty uniform to exercise your right.
Myself I only open carry when running the trap line. Doesn't bother me to walk in the local store with my pistol strapped to my side. In the hood or unfamiliar area I go concealed.

In some states, you have to have a permit to carry concealed, but you do not need a permit to open carry. Nebraska was that way. I never had a concealed carry permit when I lived there because I could carry anywhere it was legal without a permit as long as it was open carried.

LEO's and other security have the built in notion that they are responsible people trained to carry and do so with that respect given to them for that, however that does not mean they could go postal either at any moment. They also have the right to use lethal force if needs be, civilians have to be way more careful about using that privilege, they have it, but are held to a different level than security forces are when using it.

Civilians on the other hand are always given the doubt thought before understanding the why part. Out in the field I open carry for quicker use when needed, but usually will empty the holster when getting gas, or entering a store for a snack or elsewhere for a meal, even the empty holster draws attention, and thats here where everyone in rural areas grows up with guns.

Here you must have a ccw license in order to carry concealed but can open carry. Some people don't want the hassle of the additional background check and fingerprinting the fees etc....

Only to the point of taking a good look at the individual and assessing. aka: regular Joe/Josephine, or hood rat. Can't say I've ever seen a woman packing openly, and only rarely a man. Again, St. Louis Co., Home of the Libtard Snow flakes.

I do play a game and try to see who's packing and imprinting. Not many show.
