Both of these scenarios could easily lead to even more innocent people killed.

What makes me really angry is that we still guard our money in banks better than we do people in schools, stores, etc.
I'm pretty darned sure someone would figure I'm the bad guy if I drew my weapon.

But I still maintain the option.

I've tried the "Please don't shoot me" angle, and that did not work.

Walmart has made considerable changes to its gun sale policies between 2015-18.

Businesses tend to put the Gun Free decal on their door to shave a few points off their liability insurance. Businesses typically do not scan/ search patrons entering their stores.

Thanks for the link. {Sarcasm}. If there is one, that is.

Just to note, Walmart doesn't even sell guns in every state. I didn't know Walmarts sold guns until I visited a Walmart in VA. Was in for quite the surprise to see their whole weapons section. Walmarts here don't sell guns.

Goes to show the differences in culture between some states.

Yes, I'm the guy at the red light who is stopped 50 feet behind the car in front of him.
Me too, albeit not 50 feet.

Probably same reasons why a cop in the area still won't deter violence and cruelty. Bad things happening, and taking away peoples freedoms and rights for some false sense of security is not going to stop this. And, I won't be surprised if this is another manufactured shooting by the globalist democrats to use to chip away more of the second amendment.

Maybe, but that can obviously change and some of the stuff on the my life site is quite interesting to say the least. My mother for example while it had her age & town right has been retired since 2006 and is some Manager at a company she never worked for....

Here's some surveillance shots of him entering the Walmart, looks like one AK47 and he was wearing hearing protection.

Well, just another mass shooting in America, thanks to legal and illegal drugs and millions of guns.
