Why Walmart Really Had This Extreme Reaction to Gun Violence

Why Walmart Really Had This Extreme Reaction to Gun Violence

The battle over gun control continues to take center stage in politics all across America. The demonized Democrats think that all guns should be collected and burned. And the Republicans believe that moderation should be the norm when dealing with the issue of certain types of guns in America. So many people believe they have the answers to this issue. But what matters is the heart of the person pulling the triggers.

Many of the shooters have had something traumatic take place moments before they decided to mass murder a bunch of people. But even long before those problems and warning signs were becoming an issue and nothing was done about it. President Trump is drafting legislation to put the fear of the death penalty back into the crime of murder. People need to know that there are real consequences for actions that they take.

This past week Walmart made it clear that they will no longer sell certain guns, and they will officially stop selling handgun ammunition. The one thing that people should not do is go to the extreme of one side or the other when the issue of murder and gun control comes up. There must be reasonable ground upon which everyone can stand. Ultimately it is not the guns fault nor the ones that sell them for the crimes committed with guns. The fault lies in the hands of the one holding the gun.

Walmart has jumped to an extreme. They have caved under the pressure of liberal stiffs that hate big corporations and people with guns. This is an instance where Walmart should have stood their ground and not allowed outside pressure to dictate what they carried on their shelves for the consumer. Just because Walmart no longer sells handgun ammo does not mean that other stores will follow suit.

Walmart has even decided to stop selling handguns in Alaska which means they are no longer in the weapons market. The retail giant is even asking people to no longer carry weapons in their stores. They do not want open carry happening in the stores where it is legally permitted. Walmart wants to have nothing to do with guns or bullets or anything at all. They simply just want to disappear from the scene altogether.

Sadly two of the shootings happened at Walmart stores as a result of crazy people. It is not the store’s fault that these two people shot up and murdered a bunch of people. Walmart is a place where there are a lot of people. By not allowing people to carry guns in-store Walmart is opening themselves up to future violence. If anything Walmart should allow people to carry guns in store and it just might keep the crazy people away from the store.

But instead, the mighty Walmart caved to the pressure of the Democratic Party that overstepped their authority and pressured the retail store to stop selling that kind of merchandise. One can only wonder what the dumb Democrats will demand that stores stop selling next. The dumb Democrats took a stab at one of the stores that sell 20 percent of the ammo sold in the United States. They are hoping that it will begin a chain effect to where it will be harder to get the bullets needed to defend oneself. However, the gun owner will simply go down the street to buy what they need.

Walmart is urging Congress to get off their backsides and start doing the job that they were elected to do. President Trump and his staff have already taken the first steps and written a bill of legislation that would effectively start the process of keeping these terrible events from happening.

This is not the first time Walmart has caved to the pressures of the stupid Democrats. In 2015, they stopped selling assault-style rifles because of a shooting that happened that year. Walmart needs to tell the wacky Democrats to keep their noses in their own business. There is no reason that the Democrats should be pressuring corporations to take certain actions as a political posturing move.

  1. Another Liberal pawn, is our beloved WallyWorld. Now after a couple more home-grown terrorist shootings (and who knows where they get the idea to do such a thing) the Libertards can cry: Even lack of sales can’t stop guns from killing people; let’s round up the guns.
    With all the migration from different areas of people with different driving habits, Phoenix is seeing a lot of wrong-way drivers and fatal accidents. Why aren’t the Libs demanding a roundup of criminal cars?

  2. Gun Violence – There are a lot of emotional arguments on both sides, so let’s break down the official numbers from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention): New numbers are 38,000 deaths a year; however, the ratios are probably the same
    • There are 32,000 deaths a year from Gun Violence in the USA – 40,100 in car accidents (2017)
    • 60% are suicides = 19,200 (conveniently omitted fact)
    • 3% are accidental = 960 and 4% are justified = 1,280
    • 33% are homicides = 10,560
    • However 80% of them are gang related = 8,448.
    • That leaves 2,112 in society of 312 million
    • As we all know, it is not politically correct to discuss the prevailing Black-on-Black crime and Latin Gangs – Back population is 14%, however they represent more than 50% of the homicides.

    No NRA member has ever been charged on gun violence, so why are they always implicated in that in public opinion.

    Guns do not kill – people do.

    Criminals would not comply with any gun control laws. Most mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones – why – a safe place for the shooter.

    America does not have a gun problem. We have significant problems with education, culture, and socio-economics. How much does our culture of violence and lack of respect (self and authority) impact the younger generation
    • Movies, Video Games
    • As long as we give 24/7 news coverage, some will try to make a name for themselves

    Finland and Switzerland have some of the highest per capita gun ownership in the world, yet some of the lowest gun violence. Both of them are small culturally homogeneous and well educated societies with mandatory military service for all males. USA is not.

    Mexico is the number two most dangerous country (after Syria – civil war) due to cartels.

  3. *** Let’s keep things in a proper perspective ***
    FBI: More People Killed by Hammers, Clubs than with Rifles of Any Kind
    By AWR Hawkins August 12th, 2019
    The most recent FBI crime stats show that more people were killed in 2017 with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles of any kind.
    • 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.) while
    • 403 were killed with rifles.
    And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the 403 deaths attributed to “rifles” would have been carried out with an “assault weapon.” So the gap between the number of persons beaten to death with hammers and clubs verses those killed with “assault weapons” would be even greater than the gap between those who died in a hammer/club attack versus those who died being shot with “rifles” of any kind.

    2017 crime figures showed
    • 1,591 people were killed with “knives or cutting instruments” while
    • 403 were killed with “rifles.” This means nearly four times as many people were stabbed to death as were killed with any kind of rifle.

    It is not only the Guns – 2016 Bastille Day in Nice by a Truck
    • 87 Death – 434 Injured

  4. Walmart Executive management violated their core reason for being! They have taken an action that will reduce the number of customers coming into their stores for ammunition (who typically buy other items as well) while doing nothing effective that makes their remaining customers safer. This has the likely effect of reducing their corporate profits to the detriment of their stockholders. Time to move on.

  5. I guess WalMart didn’t learn from Dave’s . I personally will no longer shop at WalMart or any of their offshoots, IE Walgreens, Sam’s Club, etc. I wish you the worst of luck and sincerely hope you go broke.

  6. I support the right of Americans to own firearms, but I also support the right of companies to make the decision to sell (or not sell) whatever the hell they want. Any conservative who urges people to boycott Walmart because of this decision is just a leftist in disguise. That’s EXACTLY the knee jerk reaction that the left has when they disagree with a decision made by any business. Maybe the morons on the right can protest in front of their local Walmart at the same time that the morons on the left protest in front of their local Chick-Fil-A. As for me, I’ll continue to shop at Walmart for the same things I’ve always bought there. Anyone who doesn’t like it can kiss my a$$…

  7. WALMART IS NO LONGER CUSTOMER FRIENDLY. Walmart has taken a stand for the last time against its customers. We will no longer be Insulted ,Controlled And Told What We Can And Cannot Do by a weak kneed Democrat Retail Giant. CEO Doug Milton,,, Walmart was made by the American Consumer That has Supported Walmart and Sam’s Club to what it is today. You took this unfair stance against your most loyal customers because of the pressure from the Blind Power Hungary Democrats. Because of a few,,,you Mr. Millon take it out on many Patriot Americans who are for the most part honest and law-abiding. Shame on all of theses Big Time Retail Giants that are Caving to these Radical Democrat Politicians That Will Do Anything And Use Anyone To Regain Power Over The American People. We Will Never SUCCUMB To This Violation Of Our Constitutional Rights To Protect Ourself By Any Means Possible AND Will Never Be Swayed By Any NATIONAL CONGLOMERATE GROCERY STORE!

  8. Walmart has made an ignorant move it will regret as they will alienate many of their customers that patronized them for ammo etc. They should think of their customers and not the liberal fools they caved to.

  9. Walmart sells tires and other automotive products and the automobiles ( using current interpretation) kills more people than guns. Do they ban these sales also? Selling a product does not make one responsible for people misusing that product. Neither kill. People do ban them if you want to completely stop violence then that is a completely different subject for a later date.

  10. The Demoncrat Party is a left wing hate group !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Ice cream makes you fat. Walmart should stop selling ice cream. How many deaths are caused by being over weight? How about cars? They kill 50000 people a year. Yet, no one wants to stop selling cars. We hear about the infrequent mass shootings, yet Chicago has more shooting deaths per week end than most mass shootings. And Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. It is not the ordinary citizen that does the shooting. It is the criminal and gangs. Dems are pushing to take your guns but can do nothing about the guns in the hands of criminal. Makes no sense. Disarming citizens is the first step to a dictatorship.
