Walmart Concealed Carry prohibited sign

Orland Hills walmart does not carry ammo, local ordinance IIRC.

Country Club hills does not carry ammo as far as I know.

Matteson does, small/tiny counter, but decent supply during the drought, only place we found 380 last year.

But they might have it in the store, not on the shelves, you have to ask and even then they might not find it for you.

Yup, I'm 2 minutes away from the orland hills one. I never have any reason to go to crestwood, Lockport, or bridgeview so I'd have to make a special trip there. Very annoying.

 

Every trip to Walmart is special. :laugh:

Not sure how long you have been there, but many moons ago, when I was but a wee lad, there was a range in the small mall.

Kohls was a sporting goods store where I rode my bike over to buy all my gun magazines and dreamed about owning guns and right down from it the gun store/range.

New mayor and new politics killed it off.

 

Orland hills police station was in a house on 94th ave, really just a house among other houses, before a large drug bust funded the new station by Walmart.

 

I have even talked to some people who bought their first gun from the hardware store that used to be on lagrange by SW highway.

 

Funny thing is according to the CCW map, orland park had one of the higher rates of issued permits in the state, as much or higher than my area down here in corn country.

I dealt with someone one here from Orland Park. When I mentioned that we should meet up somewhere a little more gun friendly, he said Orland was very pro gun. I don't understand how a village with ordinances like theirs against gun and ammunition dealers can be anywhere near pro gun.

Politics, Chief of Police Tim McCarthy. They do have some very pro gun officers.

At least we are not Highland Park. Plus we are home rule and their only firearms ordinances deal with dealers.

 

Something is better than nothing in this messed up state.

Like was said, politics.

 

I moved out over 20 years ago, my folks over 10, but my MIL still lives there.

Some of the things that go on there (library controversy) could make your head spin.

My wife keeps up on Orland Politics a bit, I try to ignore it. I have enough to worry about with the state and our own town/school system.

 

Politics as usual.

 

And IIRC the gun store/range was owned or operated my an OP LEO, or ex OP LEO, but my memory is a bit foggy on that one.

 

And for those that don't know, the police chief's claim to fame was getting shot in the Regan assassination attempt.

Cannot doubt his heroism for that one, just don't agree with his politics.

Maybe a copy of "The Walmart Thread" should be sent to Republican Senator in Washington. It would be great material for a filibuster next time Dianne Feinstein attempts to bring something to a vote.

ETA: in the unlikely event that a senator does use this thread in that manner, I'd like for him or her to show this to her.

Did she really say that? If so, please let it be recorded and available on youtube to haunt her with.

 

Alas, no she did not. It was from a satire site that people for some reason believed was a real article.
