In the news a male in his 60's opens fire in a Walmart parking lot killing two cart pushers. This is yet another example of Unarmed employes working for a corporation who does not allow their employes including Security and Loss pervention to carry a conceled firearm without the fear of being fired. Walmart refuses to Arm their security officer who drives the parking lot. or their loss pervention officers who constantly put their life on the line with each stop they conduct about 7 a week although we were all allowed the option to have a bullet proof vest in case we get shot. Maybe the outcome could have been different to for these cart pushers if they at least had the option assuming they were old enough to carry a conceled firearm.

Yep, that pi**'s me off to no end.
My other half works graves at a Wal-Mart & has her permit to carry but is not allowed to, even with all the abductions ext. that have occured in thier parking lots. Then they will ask her to go out at O-dark thirty in the morning to help bring carts in or empty the trash cans by the cart returns. At least she does stand-up to them enough to refuse to do it unless they will let her take at least one other person with her.

This kind of stuff is driving me crazy.

I WANT A VERMONT CARRY LAW PASSED IN UTAH!!!

If an employer forbids an employee the right to protect themselves, they ought to be held liable for any damages/injuries received in the line of duty. Period. And should that person be killed, like those at the WalMart, a hefty sum in the way of life insurance should be paid out to the family left behind!

Sorry to hear about that. It's a horrible situation that I hope I never have to face.

If we must endure this insanity (e.g. AOL, Delta Center, some churches, etc.), I would like to have this enforced by law, but it's a big step backwards in many ways IMHO. The unholy ruccous in the State Legislature would be entertaining, at least. :?

Talk to Clark Aposhian...

...he has stated at one time or another that we are possibly going to get Alaskan Carry here in Utah...

...this might have changed as of lately but it sounded VERY promising as I spoke with Clark earlier this year.
