Thank you for
contacting Wal-Mart regarding our concealed handgun policy.
Wal-Mart was founded by Sam Walton on three basic principles.
Strive for Excellence, Service to our Customers, and Respect
for the Individual. It is that respect for the individual
that led us to create the current policy pertaining to concealed
is our policy......If a Wal-Mart customer has been awarded
a concealed handgun license by the state government, Wal-Mart
will follow the direction of the state. However, if at anytime
while on Wal-Mart property, that customer's concealed weapon
becomes visible to Wal-Mart associates or customers, Wal-Mart
reserves the right to ask the customer to either reposition
the weapon so that it will not be visible, to remove the
weapon completely or to leave Wal-Mart property. With the
exception of law enforcement personnel, Wal-Mart does not
allow any exposed weapons to be worn or carried in public
view on Wal-Mart property or in Wal-Mart stores. Customers
other than law enforcement personnel wearing or carrying
a weapon in an exposed manner will be asked to leave the
your concern and trust that this message has addressed your
concerns regarding this issue.
This policy is
still in effect today 2012.
