    THANK YOU WALMART!!!

    Now is Mitch McConnell’s turn to be brave.

    • @Richard De Fortune 1. Define assualt weapon
      2. Define aggressive background check.
      3. Define weapons training.

      @Dan Smith I’ll cry about making dynamite available to mentally ill

    • @Richard De Fortune hey, the mentally ill are crazy not stupid, they make all sort of wmd. Back in the 30’s some farmer blew up 50 school kids, protesting high property taxes. You just can’t legislate crazy. Most demonrat mayor’s that run these big city’s are in prison for big felonies.

    • @Kevin Preston Okay. Since you like to hide behind the true definition of “assault rifle” We’ll make it easy for you…..Ban any rifle magazine that holds more than 10 rounds. If you need 30 rounds to shoot something in self defense, you need to put down the weapon!

    • @chris smith I am not hiding behind anything. Knowing what you are talking about is important. Banning magazines capable of holding 30 rounds. Okay, that is a conversation we can have. I don’t think that it would have an affect on the overall “gun” violence rate.

  2. It’s sad the corporations have to step up while the government just sits on their hands

    • @Mind Freshener wow you really know what’s going on don’t you 🙄😑

    • Mind Freshener | September 3, 2019 at 4:38 PM | Reply

      @Rueben Aragon When you register a business, the parent entity is the government. Otherwise there will be no registration needed if the business was truly private. Furthermore, Walmart is subsidized by the government with food stamps.
      Government: “Jump!”
      Walmart: “How high?”

    • False. They’re sitting on piles of NRA funnelled Russian money.

    • Justinus Vinbelli | September 3, 2019 at 9:32 PM | Reply

      The government needs to stay a mile away from this.

  3. All it took was a mass shooting in one of thier locations… Good job.

  4. Good on you Doug.
    THANK YOU.👏

    • @Daisy Elmir Is that why elites use disarmed body guards?

    • Justinus Vinbelli | September 3, 2019 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @Mainely I open carry daily. The presentation of a weapon deters an unfathomable amount of crime in and of itself.

    • @Justinus Vinbelli Really? How do you know that? LMFAO; this morning I rode my bicycle with my dog and it prevented a mass shooting here in my small town, also the sun rose because I wasn’t carrying a gun. Thanks for proving my point about open carry/morons.

    • Justinus Vinbelli | September 3, 2019 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      @Mainely the presence of law enforcement aka armed men deter crime in many places. Good on you for having your dog with you. It’s kinda like a women who walks her large dog in a park is less likely to be attacked than a woman alone.

  5. Moscow Mitch will be upset.

    • so will Leningrad Lyndsey

    • @The Fibler – Paul-lie Ryan wisely bailed *before* the “NRA-Russian Connection” was exposed… 🇷🇺
      Now he sits, quite comfortably, on the ‘Board of Chairmen’…at Cluster-Fox ‘News’. 💰

  6. Wal-Mart *likes* money…customers like *not getting shot* while getting groceries.
    Customers *not* shopping at Wal-Mart = 💸👋💸
    What’s *not* to understand…? 🤔

  7. It took Walmart a month to decide to do the right thing.
    Still better than Congress thanks to Moscow mitch.
    #DoSomething #DoYourJob

    • @Mainely does that happen often? Try like, almost never. You don’t even know what you’re talking about.

    • @Freedom B A concealed carry permit holder has to take a test to demonstrate firearms proficiency AND has to know their state laws regarding use of force and self defense whereas an open carry is just some bubba who has watched too much NRA tv and thinks he/she’s competent because they read some crap on a forum.

    • @Mainely You’re making assumptions now.

    I thought video games were the problem Walmart?

  9. Walmart isn’t worried about losing lots of business because in many rural places, it’s the only place to shop and for many people, it is the only place they can afford to shop.

    • Lol!!! Sure.

    • Laura – But *they are* worried about employees *not showing up for work* after a co-worker gets fired.
      *Those* are the kinds of complaints regional managers are ‘passing upstairs’ to the ‘Boardroom’.

    • Oh, I’m guessing Walmart didn’t make a ton in gun or ammo sales. Cheaper online, some gun stores etc etc. Not to mention the lack of service in the sporting Department constantly from what I’ve read. And experienced. Good for you Walmart. Thanks for promoting the local gun shops and online buying period.. Places where ARS, let alone other types of firearms and ammo are promoted and sold. And all the anti-gunners on here clapping their hands.. Probably don’t get that fact I’ll praise in the win

    Let’s be honest, they had no choice. This is the power of the people. Forget waiting for the government, just don’t shop there and they will soon shape up. Just like Nike, they have run the numbers and there are not enough gun toting hillbillies around to dent their profits. Furthermore, they will probably make some current customers more loyal as well as gain the odd few. This is a business move, not one of consciousness.

    • OrangeManBad.MP4 | September 4, 2019 at 6:15 AM | Reply

      I think you’re vastly underestimating the ‘gun toting hillbillies’. There are more guns in this country than humans. Also, you can always move to mexico where guns are banned. That way you don’t have to worry about gun violence.

    • Amenhotep – The number of people who shop at Walmart for ammo is *well-nigh nil* compared to those buying diapers, dog food, soft drinks, toilet paper, hot dog buns, “Windex”, etc., etc., and the ‘Boardroom’ *can* ‘do the math’.💰

    • Amenhotep The Third | September 4, 2019 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      @OrangeManBad.MP4 Or move to almost any other country on earth and not have to dodge bullets.

  11. It will draw customers to Walmart. Women shop at Walmart for their children. Not so for sporting goods stores.

    • bellamoon dumbasd

    • It won’t really change that much profit or loss at the end of the day though but it will reduce their liability in litigation significantly, For every crybaby right winger who will threaten to boycott about 99% of them are just bloviating gasbags and EVERYBODY knows it, LMFAO!

    • @Mainely
      liability for selling ammo? … let’s not be stupid

  12. Wow, that’s huge.

  13. We’re all better off without guns. Walmart made the right decision to discontinue sales on guns and ammunition.

    • Justinus Vinbelli | September 3, 2019 at 9:44 PM | Reply

      If EVERYONE gave up there guns including criminals…yes we’d all be better off. Also if everyone was just nice to each other. That’s not going to happen. There will always be wolves. They may come in the form of a criminal or an oppressive government but we will always need weapons for protection and the protection of those we love. The answer is more protection, more people Carrying guns, trained and armed and ready to protect innocent life. Get armed, get trained and carry often.

    • Michael Limberopoulos | September 3, 2019 at 11:27 PM | Reply

      A lot of the gun community buys ammo online in cases of 1,000 cause it’s cheaper to buy in bulk. Most people buy firearms online cause they are cheaper than most mom and pop gun shop or some chain store. This does nothing…

  14. Why wasn’t this done in the late 1990’s when Walmart employee Tyrone Montgomery killed Gail Islib, a Walmart employee that he stalked & sexually harassed? Guess where Montgomery bought the gun? The same Walmart store where Islib worked!

  15. body count must have just outweighed profits?

  16. That will have far more effect than their prior move to limit video game sales in response to a prior mass shooting.

    • Hey Walmart, How about tobacco, alcohol excetera. Oh wait, they don’t cost us many deaths or suffering…?

    • Tobacco and liquor *aren’t* randomly fired *into* churches, theaters *and* schoolyards, *instantly killing* the ‘recipients’, mirage… 🙄

  17. Obviously Moscow Mitch is not a CEO of Walmart.

  18. Walmart is still bad for America. Despite them trying to scale back their arms sales. Walmart is still evil.

    • Paul,
      There is no denying your comment, friend.
      To see these 2 parties try to take each other down, will contrast well with these 2 factions’ usual practice of throwing out scraps to the public & watching with glee, as people fight over these scraps.
      President Trump’s taxpayer-funded golfing escapes, mirror Nero fiddling away his time.

  19. Walmart would have made much more effect on preventing unnecessary deaths if they stopped selling alcohol and opiates.

  20. Gangs, thugs, hard criminals, and mentally crazy’s all now feel much more bold going into all Walmarts armed themselves if legal law abiding citizens can’t carry in Walmarts…this is so stupid ! Time to fully Boycott Walmarts..
