Aren’t you glad that you are now lorded over by unaccountable, virtue signaling multinational corporations like Amazon and Wal-Mart that have decimated local retail?
“Walmart is set to end sales of handguns in Alaska and will discontinue the sale of short-barrel rifle and handgun ammunition in stores nationwide, the super chain’s president and CEO announced Tuesday afternoon.
The store said it will gear its focus toward long-barrel deer rifles and shotguns, supplying much of the ammunition they require and providing hunting and sporting accessories and apparel, Doug McMillon wrote in a memo.
“We have a long heritage as a company of serving responsible hunters and sportsmen and women, and we’re going to continue doing so,” McMillon said. …
Walmart reminded customers that it has changed its policy regarding firearms sales in the past, including stopping the sale of military-style rifles such as the AR-15, raising the age limit to purchase firearms or ammunition to 21, and requiring a “green light” on background checks. …”
After the Parkland shooting, Wal-Mart announced it would stop selling guns and ammunition to anyone under 21. It announced it would stop selling “assault weapons” after the Charleston church shooting. Rest assured though, Wal-Mart will never buckle and submit to pressure from the mainstream media and stop selling guns and ammunition to “responsible hunters and sportsmen.”
