Another Major Retailer Caves And Removes Guns

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of corporations giving into anti-gun activists to please the “woke” mob of nutcases and their anti-gun political cronies.

These are folks that, if you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile because whatever you do is never good enough until they completely run your life from their ivory tower imagining how Utopian your life is when, in reality, they’ve turned it into a living hell.

Dick’s Sporting Goods may have been the first. Than, any number of banks. And, now, Walk-Mart? Yes, Wal-Mart (hat tip to here for the lead). Lauren Fruen writes,

Walmart says it has removed ammunition and firearms from displays at its U.S. stores, citing ‘civil unrest’ across America. 

The nation’s largest retailer, based in Bentonville, Arkansas, sells firearms in about half of its 4,700 stores. The move comes days before the U.S. presidential election on November 3, with many worried that the result could be contested or spark violence.

‘We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers,’ Walmart said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Thursday.

Now, to be fair, Wal-Mart said that people could still purchase these items at their stores, but let’s be real: how many times have you gone to Wal-Mart and been unable to find help with anything? You go to Wal-Mart because you can find everything in one (long) shopping trip and because of their prices on a lot of things. You don’t go for the great service. That’s not their deal.

This is utterly ridiculous. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to shop at places that try to limit my rights, and, while you can argue that Wal-Mart isn’t limiting your rights by choosing not to make it convenient to buy a firearm at their stores, they certainly will make it more difficult in many rural areas to do so. And that’s just sad.

  1. If you continue to shop at Wally World, then you’re part of the problem. Hit them where it counts, in the wallet !!

    • Floyd – yep – I quit shopping there over a year ago when I found out that they belong to one of little nanny warbucks (bloomie) anti-gun groups – something like ‘responsible (yeah sure) retailers for gun sense’ – something along that line anyway. I’ll never darken their doors again – not that my measly purchases will hit them hard enough to make a difference. But it is the thought that counts. And warning others about them.

  2. So far removed from Sam Walton now! Even if they grow a pair now, I’ll never walk through their door again. Even for the entertainment value!!!

  3. I stopped years ago. Never was what I would consider a regular just a convenience shopper as we are rural and they ran all others out of business. We do still have a small hardware store, where they actually greet you at the door and a liquor store close to wally everything else we just plan ahead and shop for the week.

  4. Have you been to a Walmart lately? I won’t even think of going to one of their stores. The place is a zoo with the way people act and dress Not to mention over half of the stuff they sell is Chinese junk.

  5. Walmart is already looking to rid itself of even the few workers they do have now, or at least as many of them as possible. With robot stockers being tested in a few stores, and self check out implemented already, is it any surprise. Since they don’t care about their workers, that they also don’t care ablout their customers should not surprise anyone?

    Any store where my firearm is not welcome may as well consider my business, and my wallet along with the cash in it, not welcome as well.
