4 This Walmart thing is just virtue signaling. The Walmart in my town rarely sells guns or ammo. In just short of three years I have seen one person buying a gun there. And haven't seen anyone buying ammo.


The pawn shop in Sherman sells more guns in a week than the two Walmarts here sell in a year.

Last I heard people were already losing their jobs, professional reputations over online mobbing. Prominent media people have announced former Trump employees should never get a future job (see: Sean Spicer on DWTS).

18 Walmart Caves To Far-Left, Stops Selling Ammo And Guns

I am sorry to hear that. Walmart is where I had been buying all my ammo before that tragic canoe accident. What ever retailer is cheaper on ammo?

Back in the day of The Great Ammo Rationing, Walmart would have regular drop shipments of ammo, and the locals discovered the schedule and would line up on the day of the week the ammo delivery was made to the store. Customers would buy up to the Walmart imposed purchase limit.

Now Academy has better retail ammo price. No need to go to Walmart.

28 I was a reluctant Trump voter in 2016. I have told people that I'll crawl over broken glass, through a chamber full of VX gas to vote for him in 2020.

But if he signs a Red flag law bill - he can kiss my vote goodbye. Likewise for any other Republican who supports such a blatantly unconstitutional, due-process denying piece of filth.

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf recommends every East-Coast bishop have a Procession for Averting Tempests from the steps of their cathedral churches and recite from the old Rituale Romanum:

God, who are offended by our sins but appeased by our penances, may it please you to hear the entreaties of your people and to turn away the stripes that our transgressions rightly deserve.

We beg you, Lord, to repel the wicked spirits from your family, and to ward off the destructive tempestuous winds.

Almighty everlasting God, spare us in our anxiety and take pity on us in our abasement, so that after the lightning in the skies and the force of the storm have calmed, even the very threat of tempest may be an occasion for us to offer you praise.

Lord Jesus, who uttered a word of command to the raging tempest of wind and sea and there came a great calm; hear the prayers of your family, and grant that by this sign of the holy cross all ferocity of the elements may abate.

Almighty and merciful God, who heal us by your chastisement and save us by your forgiveness; grant that we, your suppliants, may be heartened and consoled by the tranquil weather we desire, and so may ever profit from your gracious favors; through Christ our Lord.

30 I mentioned it last night. Went shopping and drove past Walmart. I got what I needed at the Walgreens across the street for a buck more, and parked by the door. Walmart can take a big hit, but a few million 2A supporters who spend, say, 2K a year going elsewhere would be a big blip on the screen.

I did the same thing and that's why I have over 10,000 rounds of .22lr in ammo cans in the garage.


The pawn shop here is where I get all of my 9mm now. He gets in crates of that stuff and sells it at prices no one can compete with. He runs out quick so when I see it, I buy as much as I can.


I suspect the ammo he gets fell off the back of a truck at some point.

42 60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL
- The dimwitted mayor of Chi-Town

So, they're able to track with absolute, pin-point precision precisely where a bare majority of these "illegal firearms" come from (which I don't believe, but even if you take that BS assertion as fact)... but can't keep them from going-off and killing a dozen or so of their citizens every fortnight.

Sounds like a perfect argument for why "gun laws" don't work, Mayor.

74 Here's a little piece I saved from about 20 years ago. (I have no idea how the formatting's going to go.)


FOR THE RECORD
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953,
approximately 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were
rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5
million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
exterminated.

In 1928, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, 13
million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who
were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million
political dissidents were unable to defend themselves and were rounded
up and exterminated.

In 1964, Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000
Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
exterminated.

In 1970, Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000
Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
exterminated.

In 1956, Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one
million "educated" people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
up and exterminated.

That places total victims who lost their lives -- because they were
unable to defend their liberty -- at approximately 56 million in the
20th century.

105 Walmart has been moving left for some time now. They used to get bashed as the "Republican Store" and I guess they grew tired of it. I guess we could call for a Walmart boycott but it is not likely to work. A, conservatives just don't do boycotts well. We don't have the anger and organization the left employs. Also, most Walmart Shoppers likely don't care about such things, they just want the best price on mostly crap products.
My biggest complaint about Walmart is how they have devastated small town business districts over many decades. I guess the consumer made his choice. The cheap crap from China won over supporting local trade. The lesson is you can't make people care, it has to come from within.

I will gladly boycott the place but I doubt much will change. We live in an era where tweets and protests rule. The corporations believe the society is moving hard left and they are choosing to join in rather than to be run over. We saw the same when every major car rental place when anti 2a at the same time.

The sad thing is no one wants to look at the real problem. It is too tough to take on societal decay, the 24/7 media, and the interNOT.

Their prices aren't the best but the selection - at least in Ammo - is decent.

Their firearm selection is good for handguns and shotguns, leaves a bit to be desired for rifles. They do usually have a fully stocked Magpul aisle though if that gives you an idea of their selection. I picked up an M-lock fore-end handstop there yesterday for my MCX.

My father's CertaPro painting franchise was destroyed by Wal-Mart. Dad had a contract for the DC area to repaint 10 stores I think. He got 1/3rd down to start the work - hired all the painters needed to do the job, completed the work on time. Went to get the rest of the money due to him and Wal-Mart told him to pound sand. They knew he couldn't afford a lawyer to challenge them in claims court so they stiffed him. He had to sell the business after that since he essentially had no cash on hand and he was just plain sick of it at that point.

I'll never set foot in a fucking Wal-Mart in my life.

The other impact may be with RV'ers who are allowed to overnight park at Walmarts. If this includes hunters/gun owners, will they skip the stay at Walmart and shop elsewhere? I used to live near a 24x7 Walmart, and enjoyed going in early morning hours to avoid crowds; would often see people in camo, or obvious RVers getting supplies before hitting the road.

139 Bitter Clinger makes a good point. Walmart will fight back against the effects of a boycott by trying to force all stores to eliminate ammo sales. JP Morgan Chase and BofA already say they won't bank those businesses, and if local communities, states and even Congress join in, the effect will be to stop all mainstream stores from being in the business. And customers will no longer care if Walmart sells ammo, or doesn't sell it.

Thefts are handled by "Loss Prevention Officers" in each store.

Little known to most of the public, every state has laws on the books that allow retailers to simply send shoplifters a civil restitution demand letter for costs relating to their little crime.. police do not even need to be called. Usually it is $200 and up.

There is a whole industry revolved around this. I worked for a loss prevention software company and one of their components was allowing retailers to spit out these letters and track the payments.

Big retailers like Walmart and JC Penny do millions a year in civil demand letters.

So.. thieves are a lot less concerned with open carry customers than with LP officers posing as customers and watching them pilfer goods.

I think those more or less already exist.

The real business opportunity is to start up a credit card processor that is 2A friendly, as well as a web server that will host websites for companies that sell firearms.

The attack will be to make it difficult to process transactions and market products by denying web hosting and banking transactions. Both would probably be niche markets to begin, but as big tech starts to move in these areas, the potential for growth would be enormous.

182 I will gladly boycott Walmart. I have purchased enough cheap crap from China in my day. Walmart unfortunately rules in much of small town America but they are getting there arses handed to them in major metropolitan areas and the suburbs.

Places like Target (yes lefty but cleaner), Wegmans, Harris Teater, and even Whole Foods are killing them on the high end with much better customer service. Aldi and Dollar General are killing them on the low end with better prices. And what is Wal Mart's answer to Costco? Sam's Club? Who really thinks Sam's Club holds a candle to Costco?
Walmart has its niche. They devastate a region's retailers and everyone goes there. The places are not clean or enticing to the customer in any way. I guess they are cash cows to some extent. But at this point I think Walmart is just hanging on and not much else. The more the place does nothing particularly well, the more likely it will just hum along at best.

Ordering direct from China off Ebay is often much cheaper than Amazon, since Amazon is often just marking up the China stuff. But Amazon is convenient and returns are easier, and they keep track of all my purchases ... which can be nice. And the China/HongKong stuff is often in US warehouses, so comes quickly.

And the whole open border policy ... protects some Big Cartel money ... Chicago, run by the Outfit.

Wal Mart is the last place I would consider for buying guns or ammo. We
have a regional chain around here called Mill's Fleet Farm. They stay
out of politics for now. They have guns, ammo, pretty much everything a
sportsman needs. I used to buy toiletries at Wal Mart, even quit buying
that shit from them. The one here is mostly ghetto/bario anyway. Fuck

We have Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine. Just over the border from NH, about 45 minutes north of Boston. They are under tremendous pressure from local anti-2A folks to stop selling AR and AK style weapons. Need to go get some ammo from them to support the cause.Also, if you have local gun shops around you -- go visit them. They often have (or can quickly get) any ammo you are looking for. I have two on the same street as my employer. Some of these are veteran owned businesses and are worth your business. Not to mention you'll actually have someone intelligent to talk firearms and ammo to as opposed to some nitwit at Walmart who only knows how to use the key to get into the cabinet.

The reason Boris can do it, and I actually think this is a huge mistake in the UK system with a lot of bad effects, is that when people vote, they don't vote for people, they vote for Party. And thus the actual candidate who is elected is like the little man or woman on top of a wedding cake, you can yank one out, stick another in his place, and no one notices. It's also why MP's on both sides are universally people who grub for the party the most, it doesn't matter one damn bit whether anyone in their district knows them.

And this disconnect has led to a reality where almost all MP's only care about the Power Structure in London, because that is the only thing they represent, and they despise the actual people in the districts that they supposedly represent.

The only thing remotely "exotic" about Obama in the 80's was his name. And we all know he wasn't particularly smart, that was a myth that was created about him much later.

Is the media still pushing the wicked smart meme? I don't necessarily want to go to the opposite extreme but I've never seen a grain of evidence that Obama is a man of high intellect.
I have seen evidence that he has never, not even once, engaged in an honest debate with people who think differently than he does.

30-somethings are the last generation that will legally own civilian firearms in Amerika. Between 2025-2030 there will be an Aussie style ban imposed and by 2050 everything except, perhaps, licensed by specific need, single/double barrel shotguns stored at a club or for agriculture use with ammo and storage limits will be gone.

Most won't turn them in but will be unable to practice and there will be no maintenance nor optimal storage. Skills and guns will rust. Ammo will age out over decades.

The Age of Serfdom Ensues.

312 We have Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine. Just over the border from NH, about 45 minutes north of Boston. They are under tremendous pressure from local anti-2A folks to stop selling AR and AK style weapons. Need to go get some ammo from them to support the cause.Also, if you have local gun shops around you -- go visit them. They often have (or can quickly get) any ammo you are looking for. I have two on the same street as my employer. Some of these are veteran owned businesses and are worth your business. Not to mention you'll actually have someone intelligent to talk firearms and ammo to as opposed to some nitwit at Walmart who only knows how to use the key to get into the cabinet.

I buy all my guns at Kittery Trading Post.

I find it hard to believe that the location that regularly hosts the mobile Sig Sauer shooting range semi trailer would bow to local moonbats but up here - the lunacy is strong with them.

326 Next will be the credit card companies refusing to work with mom and pop gun stores. They couldn't pull that shit with WalMart, they absolutely will try and ban corner gun stores and online ammo dealers.

Thus pushing ammo sales from traceable electronic transactions to cash on the barrelhead. Wondering who thought this through to what point.
Posted by: Grand Inquisitor Cavil,

I'm not sure if I have ever bought ammo or a gun on a credit card, but this simply how most people do business in this day and age.

If the Left is able to bully CC companies to not do anything gun related, you will see the sport/hobby fall off the face of the Earth. Nobody carries cash anymore.

This is a hill worth dying on, state AGs need to vigorously engage in lawfare at CC companies that try to abridge constitutional rights. Make it very expensive when MegaCorps cave to the Left.

I had been paying out the wazz every fucking month to ATampersandT for dogshit cell phone service; honestly, where I live is like a black hole of coverage. I was able to get Straight Talk service for less than half of what I paid and only in the middle of nowhere in Alaskan wilderness have I had a problem. Maybe I could've gotten it elsewhere but Walmart is where I found it

Captain, could you have done better online? Don't know where you live but my experience tells me AT&T was shit out west but very good in the Northeast. Verizon did the best overall for coverage. Nowadays I don't spend every summer in AZ and CA desert testing machines of destruction so I go with whatever the wife and kid are using. Its very important that my kid, wife and MIL are able to facetime one another.

328 I remember back in the 80's n early 90's the kick ass deals on cases of shotgun shells at WalMart. Always had enough for all your buddies and yourself on the hunt. Extra cases were purchased of course for all the road signs, mile markers, billboards, abandoned cars and basically anything that moved to be shot up on the way to the hunting spot. Those days are long gone now. FU WalMart and the left.

329 It made sense for Wal-Mart to get out of the AR business when there became an AR glut and they had ARs that did not sell.

But one of the requirements for a store to keep selling firearms is it had to sell 500 forearms a year. If a store failed to do that for three years straight, no more firearms in that store.

Then they jacked the age to 21 for everything a couple years ago. Started to notice a decline in sales.

This year they started cutting hours in Sporting Goods and other departments in an attempt to 'better meet' customer demands. This was implemented after they artificially raised the starting pay to $11/hr. Sales in Sporting Goods continued to slip.

And now with this can pretty much kiss the whole Sporting Goods department good-bye. No handgun ammo means customers won't come back for rifle ammo.

There's no question this is expensive virtue signaling for WalMart. Every "rural" Walmart I have been to, it seems there's a line at the gun counter.

When Sears was a thing, imagine if they didn't have Craftsman tools. It's what brought men into the store.

What sucks also, mom and pop ammo stores gouge the shit on ammo, so now they have almost no "check" to keep their prices in line with WalMart out of the game.

Posted by: Blago at September 04, 2019 09:45 AM (zuvmW)

332 Yep, working sporting goods means you have to have staff that knows how to sell hunting/fishing licenses, do the paperwork for firearms sales and coming to you soon, how to do the paperwork and background check on ammo. And yet, we lose 72k Americans a year to ChiCom Fetanyl. Seems like a two prong attack on Americans by Xi and the Walton family.

The Progressive Left doesn't recognize the law, it now just does what it wants, the law be damned. It's already forcing the ChiCom "socialist justice" sharia court on everyone in clear and open defiance of the law and the sad part is that no current AG is making any sort of legal fuss about the loss of our rights and freedoms.

Yes, it is the hill to die on and should always be. Where are the people we elect to preserve and defend our freedoms against our domestic enemies? I don't see anyone stopping the Progs or even trying to.

I have done that with gun purchases, haven't done it yet with ammo.

I honestly have not yet ordered ammo online. But does anyone really think that won't be illegal in short order?

My big fear from all of this, only really "die hard" gun people buy ammo online. The casual shooter will just stop shooting if they can't easily access ammo.

The Left is far more interested in taking a cultural scalp than stopping crime. Criminals are not going to stop buying ammo even if you outlawed it all together.

I used to think that Gaylord was glib but after seeing him a few times away from the teleprompter where he sounded like a stuttering imbecile, I revised that downward. The trouble is that the unfree press treated him like a retarded child so that anything was given high marks. Ultimately I think he's significantly below average in everything.
