    From VCDL Alert:

    ******************************************************
    27. Walmart Corporate says open carry (especially in VA) is OK!
    ******************************************************

    A Virginia gun owner on packing.org received the following voice mail
    from Walmart, which was then posted on the Internet. According to
    the message, Walmart's policy is that open carry or concealed carry
    is OK as long as it is legal in the state where the store is located.
    Thanks to EM Mike Stollenwerk for forwarding the information:

    Excellent, I love the tone of her voice "well of course you can!"

    Better than Costco, guess I might have to go sams club next year (too bad they don't take AmEx though).

    I've never had any trouble in Walmarts, I carry open whenever I am in Kentucky and no one has ever gave me so much as a second glance (just some long first looks :shock:)

    Last night, Cam Edwards, the host of NRA Radio (Patriot channel 144 on Sirius) read from a written Wal-Mart policy, so there is a written policy floating around out there somewhere.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find it and post it here.

    I tuned in during the middle of it, but it sounded like concealed carry was approved, but open carry may be questionable.

    Let's get that paper!

    Talked to a Wal-Mart zone manager (? I don't know the difference between zone or region or area managers) who said that concealed carry is not required if you have a license. This memo is way out of date with wal-marts policy. Their policy "follows each states law." (IE..AR or FL you HAVE to conceal per state law anyway) He is supposed to email me a corporate policy memo sometime next week. As long as you are licensed and CAN and DO provide the license if asked you are fine. I'll post the policy change as soon as I get it.

    Please get the policy in pdf from corporate headquarters in Benton, if possible.

    I asked for it in an easy to print format so my fellow members could read it and print it off to share with others. He was nice and very interested in GCO because he lives in AR and can't open carry. I gave him a card and the site here and we talked guns about 15 minutes before he told me who he was/what he did. Soon as I get it I will post it.
