Default are these metal detectors too?

You know when you go in any stores now a days they have some kind of electronic scanners positioned on each side of the door that you have to walk through? Can they see your concealed firearms through your clothes with these machines?

Yup, they can read your mind too. They use tiny transceivers that the government plats in your fillings. Every time you pass through those, they download every thought that you've had since you last passed through one.

No. Those are scanners for merchandise that is tagged with a special kind of tag. It is supposed to help stop shoplifters. They are not metal detectors.

I once thought that too. Then I just thought, if they were metal detectors, your keys or pocket knife would set them off.

They only react to the little white strip that is attached to or in the package that you purchase. Don't know about all stores but our local Wally World holds the casheir accountable for not disabling them at the register. When the alarm goes off when you leave, the cashier that just waited on you gets a mark on thier record. And We all thought Walmart seemed like such a nice place to work.
