Walmart made one decision about guns that could destroy the store

Walmart is the largest retailer in the United States.

But now the company is in serious jeopardy.

And that’s because Walmart made one decision about guns that could destroy the store.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillan panicked in the face of gun-grabbers protesting the store on social media and announced Walmart would no longer sell ammunition for handguns or rifles.

The company also banned customers from open carrying in their stores.

CNN reports:

The company, America’s largest retailer, said it will stop selling handgun ammunition and “short-barrel rifle ammunition,” such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber, that can also be used on assault-style weapons after selling all of its current inventory. Walmart (WMT) will also stop selling handguns in Alaska, the only state where it still sells handguns. And Walmart will request that customers no longer openly carry guns into its 4,700 US stores, or its Sam’s Club stores, in states that allow open carry.

“It’s clear to us that the status quo is unacceptable,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a memo to employees on Tuesday.

However, Walmart will continue to sell long barrel deer rifles and shotguns and much of the ammunition for those guns. The company sells guns in about 3,900 stores. Walmart will also continue to allow concealed carry by customers with permits in its stores.

McMillon said Walmart’s changes were prompted by the El Paso, Texas, shooting, as well as recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and Midland and Odessa, Texas.

This cowardly decision came in the face of intense pressure on the Left for Walmart to impose corporately enforced gun control after mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

Gun owners reacted in anger and threatened to boycott Walmart over a decision that invites killers and madmen to target customers who are now defenseless.

    They should just hang a sign “rob and kill us first, we have no ability to resist”.
    Remember : ‘when seconds count, the cops are only minutes away’.

    Make all the laws you like but that will not stop the violence only disarm the innocent. Criminals do not obey the laws we have now but making more will disarm law abiding citizens and give those criminals absolute safety when attacking a business with the NO GUNS sign. For goodness sakes what good is more laws when the ones we have now are ignored by criminals? Have we lost our sense of common sense?

    When these stores and malls start changing their policies on gun and ammo sales because of mass shootings, the mass shooters have won.

    Punishing law abiding gun owners is not going to stop mass shootings. Bad guys do not go to a gun store or a gun show to acquire their guns to perpetrate mass shootings. There are already background checks on gun purchases in all sale venues, in all 50 States.

    Bad guys love to see good guys be restricted at buying guns and ammo. Bad guys love to see the little ‘no guns’ stickers on store entry doors.

    This means there are no good guys with guns inside the stores because good guys adhere to laws, bad guys do not adhere to laws of any kind.

    Liberals and Democrats need to stop victimizing the mass shooters and understand the above simple concepts about a bad guy with a gun who are primarily pissed off white Liberals. The original racists.

    Did the idiots at Walmart Corp. HQ make so bold as to tell people EXACTLY what “short barrel rifle ammunition” actually is, given that ammunitionis made to properly fit and function in precisely dimensioned chambers. The barrel length matters not, once upon a time, I came upon a rifle, or carbine if you prefer, chambered for the 30-06 cartridge. It had a barrel length barely 18″ long, and was rather unpleasant to fire. On the other hand, firing a rifle chambered for the same cartridge, with a 24 or 26″ long barrel presents no problem at all. What, one wonders, are the corporate idiots at Walmart talking about, one wonders.

    Amen it’s a mental health issue not a gun issue. If they would start arresting the people that knew the person had issues and charge them with the crime also we could start getting these wackos in places they need to be

  9. Dennis says:

    I just don’t understand how you got so stupid Or your just another Democratic ass

  10. Dennis says:

    I have mine not because of others with one but because of the mental health nuts that think it’s a good Idea to shoot up some place All the people that had committed these kind of crimes had warning signs and no one did anything to get them help or arrested they should be charged with the same crime he is screw CNN and the Democratic Party

    Walmart and Sams-can KMA. Mcmillon and Hillary should be repatriated to another county, she used to be on the Walmart Board.

    What a loss for Wal-Mart!!! I would rather shop in a store where there is not open carry – – it makes me nervous that an argument will break out and people will result to too much force. We had a video locally where a white guy was harassing a woman about where she parked, and her AA husband just shoved him. And the white guy murdered this unarmed AA man.

    Don’t like to admit it but I’m a retired postal employee. For good reason federal laws prohibited postal workers from packing heat on postal property. With that being said, your mailman is in violation of the law if he is carrying while on duty and could be fired for doing so. Forget the guns, just release the hounds.

    Do you flip a coin, Diane, to see which bathroom you will enter? Because that choice seems to be above your pay grade.

  18. Melania says:

    Hell, have you SEEN many of those Wal-Mart shoppers!?! Hell, I don’t want them to have guns, hammers or baseball bats – – they look scarier than crap even unarmed? We have some Wal-Marts in our large town where the people should almost be herded rather than checked out. I don’t know where they get some of this people, except for those who were side shows in the Barnum circus. Hell, I don’t want to go into a store with armed yahoos and people that clearly need help operating a shopping cart!

    Are yo Ken Marx or Karl Marx and want only your views included? Typical fascist, Ken Marx.
