    WTH?

    OK, so yesterday I was at Walmart in Sebastian FL and a shipment of ammo had come in. I waited as the guy opened up the mostly empty cartons to reveal about 3 boxes of .40, one box of Remington 45 automatic and a couple of other things, no 9mm.

    As luck would have it, today I had to drive to Lake Wales FL. The Walmart there seemed to have quite a lot of ammo (for these times) I remarked about the scarcity and the woman said, "You know who's doing it don't you? The White House." Then she told me that we won't be able to buy ammo or get a CCWP after January. She also said they are going to tax every firearm you own. I asked her where she heard this and she said, "On the news." I came home and found nothing about this on the internet. What the heck is she talking about?

    I usually take statements like hers with a grain of salt. In her case though I think a carton would be more appropriate. She's full of you know what.

    Don't sweat it. A couple of things to keep in mind, first carry permits are issued by the states, they have nothing to do with the white house. As far as the taxation thing goes, except for a few states where you have to register each and every weapon you have, and private sales are illegal, they have no way of knowing who has what to tax them!
    Every couple of weeks someone posts about an email that has gone around about having to declare all weapons on next years tax return. Old news, went no where, nothing to worry about. The rumors she was spreading IIRC go back to the day after Obama got elected. Supposedly he was going to reinstate the AWB, and do all kinds of other stuff the day he got sworn in. Hasn't happened. I don't think we have anything to worry about from him until the next election. After that it doesn't matter. Either he has his second term so he doesn't have to worry about annoying us or he has already lost and has nothing left to lose. If anything is going to happen, that is when I would be worried.

    Taking tax advice and political advice from a Walmart employee makes about as much sense as taking legal advice from someone on the internet.

    Please stop busting Wal-mart employees chops. Not all of us are stupid or know it alls. Some of us are decent people just trying to make a living. My apologies if this seems like nit picking.

    Seems the woman may be more up-to-date than some others are.

    If you look at the OpenCongress link, it presently has a 2% approval rate. That's pretty awesome. I was unaware about this bill before this thread, but I'm definitely going to be letting my Rep know I oppose it.

    I assume you were referring to the following statement?

    What's the problem? I wouldn't trust legal advice obtained from the manager of our local grocery store or my local gun store either. I think the response would have been the same had the advice come from a clerk at Cabellas.

    Sounds like she may be related to Sarah Brady...

    I am just surprised that the employee seemed to understand what bullets were. Walmarts around here seem to stock the sporting goods section with people from the craft and shoe departments.

    As for her comments just the random type of fearmongering that has been happening lately. Just like the salesman that told me Remington wasn't going to be making the 870 anymore after Christmas.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
