    Wow. I don't shop at Wal-Mart unless absolutely necessary. I hate them. But every one I've been in had long guns for sale. I am kind of glad to hear that they've been losing sales (as previously stated, I hate them). It only worries me because I know how they treat most of their employees, and with sales down, it can only get worse.

    Thumbs up Wal*Mart Wades Back Into Gun Sales

    I posted this in the 2nd Amendment Section as it, in my mind, illustrates a shift in political and retailing winds, so to speak.

    This is good news for the industry in my mind, but arguments aside, do you welcome this?

    Wal-Mart Resuming Gun Sales at Many of Its Stores - WSJ.com

    The retailer acknowledged that it may have underestimated the importance of carrying hunting and fishing gear.......
    Overall gun sales have been rising in the country—federally tracked gun sales grew more than 12.7% in the first quarter. But growth has been mainly in handguns, which Wal-Mart won't carry.
    Yet as the largest seller of firearms and ammunition in America—even when guns were available in just one-third of its stores— the company has sometimes come under criticism from gun-control groups

    Love 'em, hate 'em or indifferent...........Wal*Mart is a huge retailer that has a huge impact on this country.

    Speaking as a consumer I can't think of a reason not to welcome it.

    "Additionally, Walmart recently realized that it had lost over $1 billion in sales by retooling stores in response to a perceived customer demand for less clutter."


    Oh, they have less clutter now? I couldn't tell when I had to go into a WalMart while on a trip this past weekend. Clutter is still only one of the host of problems with WalMart.

    I enjoy driving past WalMart to shop elsewhere, even if the prices are higher (and they're frequently not any more). Shopping at WalMart is a whipping I'd as soon avoid.

    Texas WalMarts never stopped carrying long guns. It has probably been 20 years since they stopped carrying handguns. The ammo may be a good value but handloaded is better so I don't take advantage of Walmart ammo prices.

    It's not about guns, it's about profit. If Papayas or pinto beans or chainsaws were suddenly in wide demand Mart would make sure to stock as many as they could in their stores.

    Sounds like testimony then to the fact that people in the US want to buy guns in numbers significant enough to influence the bottom line at Wallyworld. I see that as encouraging news.
