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.

      • I’m with you ! My ignorant brother asked me why I drive 2 hours into NYC from pa to get groceries and I tell him every time over and over again that I don’t give my to Walmart’s I prefer to drive two hours and get t/⁴

  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.

  6. Take NOTE OF THE EMPLOYEE WORKING IN WALMART! Take note of store manager, and assistance manager! Most are people who are just plain stupid or a DEMOCRAT SUPPORTER! Don’t care about the business just being able to check out the security system. Then let other know how to shoplifting in Walmart! I would NEVER BUY ANY GUNS OR AMMO FROM WALMART! CHEAP MADE AND AMMO ARE LOW IN POWER!

  7. I guess when/if Biden is inaugurated Walmart will change its name to “Glavnyi Universalnyi Magazin” or as those of us of a certain age who know it as “G U M”.

  8. Being from a RED state I have guns and ammo. Trying to find ammo at my Walmart is hit and miss. I have been checking prices just for fun and have noticed they are more expensive on about everything in the grocery section. Not only that they are always out of product. Wont shop there any more for sure.

    • Not only that, you have to give them your license & they make a copy just to buy ammo. That’s BS. They also have 800 factories in China, where most of Wally Worlds goods come from. When a foreign country like China makes goods for another country, they actually own your factories & can nationalize them whenever they want. That is also true in Mexico, etc.

  9. With most of the civil unrest coming from blm terrorist’s maybe they should give them jobs to keep them off the streets. Oh wait they don’t want jobs they want handouts.

  10. There is very little left of the Walmart of Sam’s time. He would have cleaned house of all of the current CEO crop
    I almost never go there since they stopped selling most ammunition.
    Only go when absolutely have to get something there after hours.
    There are local businesses which need our support
