Seen Walmart's massive tax breaks and honey deals with municipal governments lately? Of course they can be "compelled" to remember their place and snap back to the heel they belong at.

While your point is valid, I think this is more for the optics.
Apparently they've been having a problem with people getting rattled in light of recent events when they see someone open carrying in Walmart too, causing false alarms.
Though like you noted, this isn't going to do anything to stop a loony.
I agree,the idiots that open carry at wallyworld should be B* slapped. Most have little man syndrome or were dorks that got picked on and feeling tough for a moment.

If shoppers openly carry guns into Walmart stores going forward, store managers may ask the shopper to leave and safely secure their gun in their vehicle before returning to the store. The policies will vary by location, however, and shoppers who are openly carrying guns may not always be asked to leave the store.
Already people are celebrating this as if Walmart will suddenly be safer to shop at or America will have less gun deaths because of this.
