    Walmart to Stop Selling Ammunition for Assault-Style Weapons

    Updated Sept. 3, 2019 1:23 pm ET
    Walmart Inc. said it will stop selling ammunition for assault-style rifles and handguns, further restricting the retailer’s gun-related sales and policies after two deadly shootings in Walmart stores last month.

    I have been in Walmart a few times.
    I don't know what it is about that place, but the customers make me feel uncomfortable and out of place.

    Just bought a couple thousand rounds. No reason to return again. Lady on the phone with her husband said “better make up your mind, a guy in front of me just bought 20 bulk boxes.”

    Interesting that I found out by a FB post from a local emergency management group. I see it’s made it here too.

    Misty Lu and I just returned from shopping at one of the two Walmart locations in our area. We've never had a problem shopping at either location, although neither of us choose to open carry in public. We don't bother buying ammo or firearms there anyway.

    If Walmart execs want to start a virtue signalling campaign by sending anti-gun letters to Washington, they are going to alienate many of their customers, rather they're gun owners or not.

    Back during the big ammo crunch of 2013, the local Walmart employees were giving heads-up to scalpers who would be there at 6:00 am when the shelves were stocked. As soon as it came in, it was sold out to guys who were tripling the price and reselling it. I haven't bought a box of ammo from Walmart since then,

    Meh, I think I bought a bucket of .22 from them once, but I buy everything on line now in bulk.

    Only city slickers wear Stetsons. Cowboys wear Resistol.
    Never thought about it. I might have fit in if I wore my rig into a walmart!

    I don't think I've ever bought ammo at a WM. Heck, I rarely buy commercial ammo at all, other than .22s.

    I've never bought ammo or firearms from WalMart. I have been buying bulk ammo online and my SD ammo at Cabelas (even though it's an 80 mile drive). It's gonna be tough to pay higher prices for food elsewhere but it's gotta be done. I buy most everything else online - especially electronics.

    This belongs in 2A issues. Folks who are saying, "It doesn't affect me.", please join fight against creeping social end to the right to keep and bear arms.

    It is the progressive pressure to erode firearm and shooting culture. The goal is zero guns and ammunition. Any step is a victory for progressivism and loss for liberty. I'm not an open carry person, but I'm reconsidering it. A nice carmel leather belt holster with my gov Kimber 1911. A neat full button shirt nd slacks. No labels or slogans.

    "The report notes that Walmart’s share of the ammunition market will drop from 20 percent to about six to nine percent annually. That’s a huge drop, and it also represents increased prices for shooters as few retail companies will be able to match Walmart’s prices.

    However, what the new policy won’t do is make Walmart stores any safer.

    The El Paso shooter didn’t pick a Walmart store because it sold guns. He picked it because there would be a lot of people in the store at any given moment. "

    Good points. There other good points in the article. Too bad it falls on deaf ears.
