We’ve seen reports that Wal-Mart is taking down the “No Guns” signage, thanks to gun owners politely contacting them and explaining the confusion the signs were causing. GSL joined with other gun rights groups in encouraging gun owners to make their voices heard and with a little tact and finesse, it seems the signs are coming down as we wanted.
Nice job, everyone!
We will update this as we have a chance to run it down.
Just got off the phone with Beverly, the district manager Kevin Haney’s assistant.
She confirmed reports we’ve read and heard that Wal-Mart has reversed itself and will be removing the “No Guns” (for on-duty staff and vendors) signage from all of the Illinois stores in the coming days.
Kevin got the initial email from corporate on their decision on this earlier today, because his eight stores in central Illinois generated the most comments and concerns to corporate of any district in Illinois.
Kudos to all of you, right in the heart of Guns Save Life territory, for getting involved to get Wal-Mart to make the right decision to pull the signs.
Beverly did say that corporate legal people were working on the language of the final order to remove the signs but that should be a done deal by the end of the week at the latest and signs should start coming down very shortly after that.
Again, fabulous work, folks!
