I've never been asked for any gun permit at Walmart here in Florida. They always ask for my ID, but hell they ask for ID to buy spray paint or cold
medicine these days!
We don't have a "pistol permit" here in Florida, but we have a CCW permit.
I think this sounds more like a state law than a Walmart policy, but I wouldn't be surprised if some retailers did tighten up on who they will sell
to. There have been several rap songs about buying a gun at Walmart and then committing a crime, and they have been drug through the mud a time or
two for selling a gun to someone that went and used it for a crime. Not fair really, because as long as they follow the laws of their state, it
isn't their problem if a person does something stupid afterwards.
Just like it isn't their problem if someone is huffing hairspray, or cooking up cold medicine. We shouldn't all be punished for the stupid actions
of a few.
