Well Wal Mart... I usually spend at least $200 per week at Wal Mart and give away quarters to the parents of small children so the kids can enjoy the mechanical horse in the lobby.

And while I support your private property right to have a no open carry policy/rule I will be exercising my freedom to shop elsewhere henceforth.

Or you can rethink that no open carry policy/rule. Think of the children!

WM is the least expensive place to buy ammo locally. They get a ton of business in the ammo/gun dept here. I usually have to wait 15 minutes or more for ammo. Longer than if I were buying any thing else.

Walmart has partnered with Michael Bloomberg...

I just received this from the Tennessee Firearms Association...


September 3, 2019

WalMart “partners” with Everytown for Gun Safety and Michael Bloomberg to advance gun ban agenda

Tennessee Firearms Association wants to make sure all gun owners and all 600,000+ handgun permit holders in Tennessee are aware of Walmart’s increasing anti-gun stance on your capacity to exercise the right to keep and bear arms which is protected by the United States Constitution.

Even worse — if that is possible — all gun owners should know that WalMart has openly stated that it is now in “partnership” on gun control issues with Everytown for Gun Safety which appears to be one of Michael Bloomberg’s “shell” gun control entities that pushes for sweeping gun bans and Red Flag laws!

At one time, Walmart was seen as a truly “American” store that had no hesitation in supporting your Second Amendment rights. That seems to have eroded as Walmart increasingly adopts policies designed specifically to make it harder for Americans to purchase firearms, to purchase ammunition, to purchase firearms accessories, and even to carry in its stores.

Walmart now proudly proclaims on its own website that it is a “charter member” of the “Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership” which was co-formed by WalMart, “Everytown for Gun Safety” and Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” See, https://corporate.walmart.com/policies

WalMart knows or should know that “Everytown for Gun Safety is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence. Everytown was founded in 2006, combining Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Everytown for Gun Safety is largely financed by Michael Bloomberg, who also founded the group.” See, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everytown_for_Gun_Safety Evertown for Gun Safety is supporting gun control, gun bans, and Red Flag laws across the nation.

So, what is WalMart telling Americans? It is saying it is now in partnership with the gun control fanatic — Michael Bloomberg — and the various corporate shells that he apparently creates to hide his participation in the gun control and gun abatement movement from the public.

WalMart announced on September 3, 2019, an expansion of its anti-gun policies that it has apparently partnered with Michael Bloomberg’s corporate shells to fashion and continuously evolve in an effort to make it harder for Americans to own firearms and acquire ammunition.

WalMart policies largely ban many sporting rifles from being sold in its stores including the immensely popular AR15 and AK47 sporting semi-automatics. WalMart is discontinuing the sale of handguns entirely. It is discontinuing the sale of “high capacity” magazines and certain firearms accessories. It is prohibiting its online retailers from offering these items. It has raised the age to purchase firearms and ammunition in its stores to age 21. It does not sale on a “conditional proceed” background check even though state and federal law allows it. It has already done several of these things.

As of September 3, 2019, it has also announced the following policies which sound not surprisingly to be right out of Everytown and Michael Bloomberg’s likely playbook of ‘how to destroy a constitutional right.’ These policy additions now include:
  • WalMart will no longer sell handgun ammunition at all
  • WalMart will no longer sell ammunition for “short-barrel” rifles including ammunition in calibers.223 and 5.56.
  • WalMart will no longer sell ammunition such as .300 Blackout, 7.62×39 and .224 Valkyrie.
  • WalMart no longer wants citizens who can legally carry in the respective states to carry in their stores if they carry openly.
Tennessee Firearms Association urges gun owners in Tennessee and elsewhere to seriously consider whether your retail dollars should be spent to the profit of WalMart’s increasing gun control agenda and its partnership with individuals and organizations that promote gun control, gun bans, and Red Flag laws. Citizens can and should avoid shopping at retail merchants who openly adopt policies that are knowingly implemented to impair the full and free exercise of rights — real rights — that are actually contained in and protected by the state and federal constitutions.

I'm going to walmart for just one reason tonight, to see if they marked the ammo down. If they did, good on me, if they didn't, Ill probably only be back in their produce department. Sports goods has nothing now.

Thanks for posting that, reading through some of their policies they sound like representatives for Green Peace, PETA, ASPCA and a whole host of anti-human organizations. I would bet Sam Walton is spinning in his grave.

How many of these shootings were done by bad guys that bought the ammo at Walmart?
Maybe some tried? They likely got sick of waiting for a store clerk to check them out and gave up. Buying ammo at WM is such a pain standing there waiting. The only time I ever got prompt service was when I reached over the counter and started pressing buttons on the register.

Sad to see Wally World descend into the anti arena.

I don't see them as anti as, say Dicks (in which I now never set sneaker), but I do see them as more vulnerable to the bad peeps among us. Thus, it's now a higher risk environment as it's (possibly, in the eyes of a psychopath maybe) a softer target.

Will I still shop there? I only go occasionally anyhoo, and never was entirely comfy being shopping cart-to-shopping cart with their some of their clientele. For me, I'll still walk into the Walmart ickiness for the few major savings I find there; but I never did like it.

I'll go, sometimes, and as rarely as possible.

Then?

Shower.

And, as I find alternatives (which I'm certain that I will) I'll eventually skip entirely the diseased and increasingly less 2A friendly environment that is Walmart.

Years ago, back when Sam Walton was alive and actively managing the firm, it was a great place to shop. Sam got sick and backed away from the business, and the stores immediately started declining. I stopped shopping there years ago, except for oil and filters. I’ll start getting that stuff on Amazon. As stated above, Walton is spinning in his grave .

Sam was an avid squirrel hunter. I had the pleasure of conducting a few deals with him directly and it required a bit of patience and working with his hunting pals to get it done. Spinning in his grave is an understatement.

I borderline boycotted walmart about a year ago and will continue to do so. For myself to get to a store I have to drive into North Dakota.

Walmart hasn't been a player for me as far as guns go in years. With all the internet resources, I stopped buying ammo from Walmart long ago, and I don't think I've ever bought a gun from them.

"We" (as a collective) shop at Costco, Food City, Krogers, Target, Kohls, Walgreens, Taco Bell - oh, BTW, try to look up a gun anything on Taco Bell's wifi - they block any and all gun related sites, and there are many other places we shop that don't support the 2nd Amendment.

It wouldn't bother me if Walmart got completely out of the gun selling business. What does bother me is they are partnering with Bloomberg - he's not for gun control - he's for banning guns. Won't him and Soros ever die? Soros is like 89 years old and Bloomberg is 77. Wouldn't it be great to see on the news that....well not to wish anything bad on anyone, but...wouldn't it be nice...

They can ask I don't open carry, but it won't stop anyone around here.

"Defenseless Victim" signs have no force of law here.

I might just start, just because.


They're just continuing on down the road they started when they removed all AR type rifles, then raised the age to purchase anything to 21, regardless of law.

Isn't it just a little hypocritical, that Walmart is going to stop selling pistol ammunition...only after their present stock has been bought out?

At least the Dick's got rid of their "bad guns," when they stopped selling them. They didn't wait for stocks to run out.
The Dick's acted stupidly, certainly, but they equally certainly acted consistently.

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.
I don’t agree with their stance, but it’s not actually a 2A issue. 2A is a restriction on government. Not a law requiring a store to continue selling a product, or preventing them from asking people to not bring something in the store.

And Kroger announced today that they will no longer permit open carry in their stores.
So I guess Kroger doesn't want any of the good guys in their stores anymore.
