Very true. Also, places like Walmart have guns for sale in the same store you can buy your household needs. This reminds people that guess what, they are just things. Anti's don't like that. When I was a kid, Sears had 'em and so did every sporting goods shop, lots of hardware stores, gas stations, etc. The more they get them out of public view, the more they can be painted as a scary unfamiliar boogie man that needs to be removed from society. Availability and education are what the Anti's hate, because it provides the facts that show their positions are foolish.

Opps ! Probably should have put this in the Other Wal Mart thread . But I'm too lazy to erase this, and retype .

****************************

While few businesses are directly required to have Security , it can eventually bite them in the bottom line, and even contribute to going belly up .

When the Business Invitees end up getting assulted in stores and parking lots , they can and do sue for failure to provide reasonable safety . You can be sure their lawyers will be familiar with Prevailing Industry Practices . Most outside Insurance Carriers will require their clients to provide certain levels of security staffing, physical security, lighting, etc under pressure of either higher premiums , or canceling coverage .

Looked at in a vacuum , each individual case of theft can will cost more to see through Court than typical value of the merchandise . But the bigger picture is the resulting deterrence.

For local , now historical , examples : Giant Food in Izzy Cohen era , had an extensive, well paid, well trained Security Dept . Including armed and unarmed uniformed security , and a comparitively large number of armed plainclothes detectives . Compared to Safeway of the era , with much smaller security force, mostly low bidder contract guards .

In the day , Hect Co had the large force of well paid, well trained plainclothes detectives, and prosecuted most thefts , vs Woodies had much smaller security , fewer porportional detectives, and much fewer prosecutions .

To be fair... he had a little help.
