    I always wonder if someone on the inside was working with robbers.

    Editorial note regarding Concealed Carry: My opinion is that concealed carry, by properly licensed/permitted persons, should be allowed pretty much anywhere. A CC permitted person has a higher-standard to adhere to as far as conflict-avoidance goes. An untrained person who would perpetrate such a crime is going to carry their weapon wherever they want, regardless of what the law states. In the absence of direct police presence, wouldn't it be nice to know that there may very well be someone who is properly trained in the "when-and-how" aspect of firearm use? To repeat what has been said over and over again, people that will commit crimes are going to carry their weapons in, regardless of the law. Many anti-gun people seem to think that if it is 'against the law' to carry a weapon, the criminals won't have one....

    Just an FYI: Directly from Walmart corporate as of Feb 4th, 2011: "Thank you for your recent inqury. Our policy on concealed weapons is as followed: - There is no policy against customers carrying their handgun in our stores as long as he/she is legally permitted by their state to carry the handgun. - As a private property owner, Walmart has the authority to ask customers to remove their handgun or leave the store on a case-by-case basis if customers or Walmart associates express concerns about the handgun." So, perfectly legal to concealed carry if you have a permit. Perfectly legal to open-carry (In NC, since NC is an open-carry state). Also, perfectly legal for the company to ask you to leave if your concealed carry becomes visible (which means you're not doing a great job of concealing it! lol), or if any customer or employee expresses concern over the visibility of your open-carry. Thank you. That is all.

    @eric here: I appreciate your opinion, but please type like an adult. "But just because u have a gun and permit does not give u powers of only shooting at the target u intend to shot at." -- Did you miss my last post entirely? I addressed this issue... I think you have it set in your mind that all CCW permit holder are cowboys; so I feel like I am wasting my time. You should actually research a topic before talking about it.

    @eric, Actually, the range shooting requirement for a citizen's CHP is higher than police officers in NC. That's right--CHP holders have to be better shots than a cop to get the permit... And we also have to know the law a LOT better than police too, because citizens don't have "qualified immunity" like police. Also, according to the US DOJ's own statistics, police are over 5 times more likely to use their firearms in an unlawful manner than average citizens. If you're going to comment on Concealed Carry, do some research, and KNOW the FACTS...

    REM I’m not spreading anything, if that is what u get from what I’m saying sorry for your misunderstanding. But just because u have a gun and permit does not give u powers of only shooting at the target u intend to shot at. even if u shoot everyday and r a crack shot u can still make a mistake miss etc. I love guns and I think its awesome u can conceal carry in this state but for the most part people r dumb and when someone’s life is on the line and adrenaline running even the best can make mistakes. Maybe I used the wrong words. So how about, be careful if u carry a gun and thank goodness no one got hurt at this robbery.
