CVS And Walgreens Announce Ban On Open Carry, Joining Walmart And Kroger

On Thursday, Walgreens and CVS made a huge change that will probably affect sales going forward, especially with gun owners.

These two national chains joined Walmart and Kroger by banning their customers from openly carrying firearms in their stores, even in states where it is legal.

“We support the efforts of individuals and groups working to prevent gun violence, and continually review our policies and procedures to ensure our stores remain a safe environment,” CVS said in a statement.

Why does the media never report on how many times a day, a week, a month, a year, guns are used to stop crime in the hands of private citizens? The answer simple: It does not fit their liberal agenda, and they will not promote any idea outside of what they want.

Will we have retailers all over this country filled with law-abiding citizens with no way to protect themselves, while the criminal or mentally unstable individuals flood these establishments, packing? Sounds like a great plan. I feel safer already knowing that the only people in the store with guns are the criminals.

So, to understand this, when you walk up behind someone in plain clothes with a firearm on their belt, you should spin them around forcefully to see if they also have a badge on their belt, hanging from their neck, and if not, demand they produce it? This is a solution to a non-existent problem and may make it much worse for law enforcement not in uniform.

On Wednesday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted Walmart for their decision also to step selling certain sorts of gun ammunition. I rarely go to any of these stores and have even more reason not to now. I would never open carry and always conceal carry where allowed. Let these companies continue to suck up to the left.

Concealed is better, but the policy intimates that customers have a right to be victims rather than a right to defend themselves. This is going to become normal among big retailers as you see with CVS and Walgreens. Of course, this is irrelevant in the states that don’t permit open carry. It will be interesting to see what effect this has on mass shooting sites.

  • That's ok. I have CCW. If you disallowed CCW patrons, I would still CCW in your stores, because I really don't give a flying crap what you think about my 2nd ammedment right to the U.S. Constitution. Not one bit. FO.

  • Moronic. This will stop a deranged mass shooter? Can't you hear it now, a nut exclaiming "I want to go in to Walmart and shoot it up but darn they have that stupid no carry policy so I guess I can't.

    It's really just an open invitation to any sicko that there will be sbsolutely zero opposition.

  • My state has a contract with CVS for prescriptions. I have a legal carry permit for my job. So CVS does have the right to do with they choose for their stores policies. Since the State has only allowed me to get my medicine from CVS, and I have a LEGAL CARRY PERMIT, I guess this libturd policy does not effect my CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. Maybe CVS should get out of the BUSINESS OF CONTROLLING WHAT I CAN "LEGALLY" DO

  • My boycott list is growing by the day: Dick’s, CVS, Starbucks, All Movies produced in America, Wal Mart, Budweiser, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Don’t need any of the ones listed, got many other outlets to choose from......

  • “We support the efforts of individuals and groups working to prevent gun violence, and continually review our policies and procedures to ensure our stores remain a safe environment,” CVS said in a statement."


    Then allow law-abiding folks the ability to carry in defense of themselves and other innocent people.

    Yes, CCW does have advantages, but.......

  • I respectfully disagree...Open carry in itself is a big deterrent to those that would do you and/or others harm... I have been carrying for over 40 years both open and deep concealed and I go nowhere without protection but I prefer open carry simply because it is more comfortable and easier to access quickly if and when it becomes necessary.... Where I reside 95%+ people carry and we haven't had a gun related murder in over 10 years and most everyone of those that carry also own AR'S, plus other SO CALLED asult weapons and there has NEVER been a mass killing in this town yet so it kinda throws all the BS about gun control touted by the left right out the window... TAKE THE GUNS AND OWN THE SHEEP/SLAVES..... NOT FOR ME THANK YOU.....
