Anti-Gun Wal-Mart Petition Let's Fight Back!

mballaimballai Member Posts: 1,280 ✭✭✭✭✭
Michael Moore who created the anti-gun "Bowling For Columbine" movie is asking the foolish viewers of this propaganda to petition Wal-Mart to stop carrying handgun ammunition. Moore is oblivious to the fact that guns bought his freedom to do so and so are the people who buy his lack of reasoning. In any event, I've signed the opposing online petition and I would encourage you to do likewise whether you buy ammo at Wal-Mart or not.

    Wally world won't sell ammunition??

    So what. It isn't like I'm really all that concerned. I have no problem getting ammunition otherwise, and generally cheaper than Wallyworld offers it. If, however, they don't want to sell it, then I won't buy it, and it will be money lost, just like Kommie Mart. Makes no difference to me.

    It's not that any particular company might not sell ammunition--it's that the anti-gun people are relentlessly pushing companies to yield to political correct business policies. Letting the companies that support the Second Amendment know that we appreciate it and want them to continue to do so is very important.

    I live in a county that long ago forced K-Mart Wal-Mart Sportmart and Sports Authority to stop selling ammo and firearms on the pretense that they were "close" to schools and hospitals. In other words, they outlawed legitimate business. They tried to shut down my local gun shop/range too. If you can't buy a gun and ammo, guess what that does to the 2nd Amendment?

    Doesn't matter if you buy there or not. Tell them you agree with their right and practice of supporting the 2nd Amendment and don't agree with the liberal pantywaists telling them otherwise.

    If they truly believed in the 2nd Amendment, there wouldn't even be a question about it. Personally, I wouldn't quit selling ammo as a proprietor of any business, and would be very vocal about it. Political incorrectness = Political dissidence. Ask the Kommies of Russia what used to happen to political dissidents.

    Yep, signed the petition. Wal Mart may be a little shakey on some issues but they need to hear our voices on this one.

    In the past presidential election my wife found a site showing large contribiters to anti-gun groups. Not only was Wal-mart listed but AOL and [email protected] Walmart just wants to draw you in their store. Sam Walton would turn over in his grave if he knew what was going on now. We haven't shopped in Wal-mart since.

    Signed it too. Glad to help out whenever I can. I am sick and tired of hearing about people trying to get stores to stop selling handguns and ammo. There's no validity to it whatsoever.

    All it takes for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.

    It's not the fact that Wal mart does or does'nt sell amo it's the fact that liberal anti gun people telling us what we can buy and where we can buy it.What if the HE MAN WOMEN HATERS told Walmart to only sell ankle high dressies and know bikinis, mini skirts,make up or other womens products.That's exactly what the anti gungroups are doing to us

    Either poop or get off the pot!

    I know not what else to say other than I believe the proprietor of all business has a right to sell or not to sell whatever they choose. But generally speaking, let 'em sweat it out a while. When their profits slip, they'll get the message. And if not, they will begin liquidating, just like Kommie Mart. Nothing petitioned ever has the effect that action (or lack of action) does.

    That's all for now....

    We need walmart as a gun store. we do not ned to lose anymore ground to the anti's. walmart executives have a tendency to lean toward the political view that suits them the best.
    Walmart will sell guns and ammo as long as there is a demand to buy it and a profit to be made.

    I know that, zip. Really, I do not want to see the day that Wallyworld pulls guns off their shelves. All I'm saying is the worst business practice in the world is to purposefully not stock items that are in demand. The same thing can be applied to smoking in restaurants. It should be up to the proprietor as to what he wants on HIS/HER property, not up to the Federal/State authorities, especially, and not up to those who shop at these places, but if they choose not to, they can face the consequences.

    When the authorities put restrictions (including heavy excise taxes) on ANYTHING, they hurt capitalism. When they require ANYTHING, they create a monopoly. When politicians try to force the hand of business by showing them what is politically correct for sale, then we should all no longer shop there. Actions speak louder than petitions.

    I Signed it. It needs to be send regularly to Investor relations Attn: H. Lee Scott.

    I do not buy a lot of ammo there but EVERY SMALL victory the Anti-Gun lobby wins is one small step toward all of loosing more of our rights to bear arms.

    Each of us individually might want to think about hitting the attached link and giving quality, CIVIL , RESPECTFUL feedback direct.
    Petitions, even with thousands of signatures never get the attention that a FLOOD of Concerned investors, customers generates.

    here is the link. Cut and paste it into your web browser.

    Time to ACT!! Everyone just go over to Wal-Mart and buy a box of 100 Winchester 9 mm rounds.....for about $10.95 a box. If you can't use them yourself, give them away.....or send them to me and I'll use them. Meanwhile, we've shown Wal-Mart we appreciate the fact they sell AMMO and we give a Bloody Nose to the ANTI Freaks!!! Well, I'm on my way there now.....How about you?

    I haven't bought ammo from Wal-Mart. I try to support the independent gunshops, but I did sign the petition.

    I also included the following as my comment. I hope "they" read it.

    [:(!]TextWal-Mart isn't rooling back prices, anymore than they are "Bringing it home to the USA". It's all hype and garbage. (Let the Buyer Beware). Wal-Mart operates on 25 % Profit, (Plus the fact, Wal-Mart gets a huge break with "Purchase Power"). My store has seldom been beatin by Wal-Mart Prices, They do beat me on Advertising. Let's face it; People believe the Commercials and Flock to get shorn. I have heard "Cheaper Than Dirt", "Gander Mnt", Cabalis, etc have allof these great prices. (Bull Crap). Example: I have 9mm RWS Ammo for $6.50 per box of 50. I carry 45-70, 38-40, 38-55, .303 surplus, 30-06 surplus, 30-40 Krag Remington, and also cater to the needs of every individual customer. SO! What I am saying is, "Better Support Your Local Gun Shop". (and we don't escort you to the door after purchasing a gun). Shooters and Hunters need to get away from the HERD Mentality. I know my prices are lower than Wally World, yet I also know there are some Gun Shops with Higher Overhead than I. Sam Walton is Gone, "Long Live the Milk Men", which believe; "There is never enough profit".

    [V]Fact is: My Little store will not be around much longer, I have fallen into a Web of Intrique spun by the ATF. Now the local Hunters/ Sportsmen/Home Defense, persons will have to Buy at Wal-Mart. I had the only competetitive store in town. And never once captialized on that fact.

    Misconception: #1 Wal-Mart is not cheap (I sell 22 Federal Hollow Points $9.40 per brick. Misconception #2: Wal-Mart did quit selling Hand Guns and at one time made people sign for ammo. #3: Wal-Mart escorts customers that buy guns to the parking lot and will not sell Ammo at the same time a gun is purchased. (What does this tell you about Wal-Marts opinion of us?) Does anyone know of another "Gun Store" that treat their customer as Prospective Felons?

    For those reasons, and the fact that no one bothered to tell me who is going to see this petition, I am not signing it.
