Walmart desperately needs a security presence in their stores. A security presence with some backbone.

Instead of robbing the store, this could have been a person going in and shooting customers and employees. Today in Tuolumne and Calaveras counties could have been a day of great sadness.

Get your act together Walmart. Otherwise it's time for all of us to take our business and our lives elsewhere.

    Maybe all the employees smoking right in front of the store could have stopped him?

    Yes maybe Calif. should have a law like Texas in which one can be "strapped down" ready, and locked and loaded!

      Calif will never let that happen. Democrats don't want people to have guns, but the politicians want theirs and their body guards to be armed.
      Democrats and criminals want to take the guns away from the person who is legal and responsible, but...more deaths by guns are in red States.
      The thing is, who pulled the trigger, a legal gun owner or one with a record? That's why every State needs to have a waiting period for anyone buying a firearm.

    If you're a good guy and want to do it legally, get your CCW. Here in the foothills if you have a clean record, and can hit a target from 3 yards to 12 yards consistently, it's a good chance you'll be good to go.
    CCW permits in Los Angeles a city of millions, and armed criminals, 200 permits. Calaveras county, population 45,000 plus, over 2,000 permits.
    Better to have the chance of protecting loved ones and yourself then doing nothing. Chances are great you'll never have to, but as we all know, crimes of violence, shootings seem to be riding.
    Lots of bad guys out there, and carrying is a BIG responsibility

        I'm sure using a microscope it might be "huge" but let's be realistic, you're single for many reasons, and huge to some is laughingly small to others.

      Constitutional Carry - If you can legally own a firearm then you can legally carry, concealed or open. 16 states now recognize 2A and Constitutional Carry. Commiefornia ain't one of them. Surprise Surprise.

      I'm not too hip on today's younger generations slang, or gangster slang, so if you can clear up your slang I'd appreciate it. What's dud mean in your jib slang?
      In my day it was something that failed, like a bullet not firing, a fire cracker of cherry bomb when you lit the fuse, it fizzled to the body AND.....nothing.

Walmart’s corporate greed creates situations like this. It’s sad but they got exactly what they deserve. They won’t pay for security unless it’s deemed necessary for business reasons.

    About 6 months ago A disgruntled employee at the Walmart in Southaven Mississippi went in and shot the place up killing his old boss and other employees and yet no change to the level of security but you’ll be greeted by a senior citizen at the door. Crazy....

Another proud one of our 73Percentiles from the Democratic/Socialist Party.
Bernie and Elizabeth Warren want these subjects of their to be able to vote while serving their sentence. Only a corrupt minded politician would say anything like that.

SPEAKING OF CRIMINALS

Do you remember the kid named Sandmann wearing the MAGA hat and the Native American in a face off? CNN and other media showed their bigotry, as in just little clips after editing to make the MAGA hat wearing kid look like a racist taunting Mr Phillips the native American.
Well it's official, CNN has to pay up, they lost, showing just how bigoted our media is with anything Trump. CNN could of shown us all the real trouble makers, The Black Isrealites the same ones who have been in the news lately killing Jewish Americans lately, but nope, cnn like Democrats everywhere stand with the murderers like Black Israelites, Democrats stand with Generals who kill hundreds of our service personal.
You dumbacraps are so easily fooled, duped and are so easily steered to what the media wants you to believe, it's absolutely funny and scary so many Americans can be so utterly stupid.
Congrats again to all you imbeciles called dumbacrats for a reason being so easily fooled time and time again.
This is just the beginning according to the Sandmann's, they will be going after the other news stations that painted their son a racist, and Elizabeth Warren is also being sued too.
You can also see this on Snopes, but no where does it show how much $$$
Thanks Democrats for showing us how gullible you all are, the politicians you voted in office love your BLIND STUPIDITY.
