Just announced Tuesday morning, September 3rd, Walmart and Sam's Club are asking you to not open carry a firearm in their stores, according to Fox 8.

The recent mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas seems to have been the final straw for Walmart. Walmart is also not selling handgun and short-rifle ammunition after they sell what they have in stock. Alaska Walmarts took it a step further and will no longer sell handguns.

You will still be able to stock up on hunting supplies. Walmart will still sell long barrel deer rifles and shotguns. Plus, the ammunition for those firearms.

In an open carry state like the one we live in it is not uncommon to see someone with a firearm on their hip. It should be interesting to see how this one plays out, especially in the Cowboy State.
