Walmart said Tuesday it will discontinue all sales of handgun ammunition and sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition that can be used with military-style weapons, following two “horrific” shootings at Walmart stores this summer. It will also stop all handgun sales in Alaska, marking its complete exit from the handguns category.
The biggest retailer in the world also is asking customers at Walmart and Sam’s Club to no longer openly carry firearms in stores, in states where “open carry” is allowed, unless they are authorized law enforcement officers. Open carry legislation is currently on the books in more than 26 states, Dan Bartlett, executive vice president of corporate affairs, said during a call with members of the media.
Walmart said it won’t be changing its policy for customers who have permits for concealed carry. And it will be adding signage to stores in the coming weeks to communicate the changes.
Private companies can do whatever they want. No one should be forced to sell something in their store. However, the reason they are doing this is not because of financials. The reason they are doing this is because they have fallen to the left-wing mob and are pushing Gun Control measures now. Their bottom line will likely take a hit.
Tomi Lahren summed this up best:
Walmart to end handgun ammunition sales…that’s fine it’ll just drive customers to small business ammo retailers. @Walmart just shot itself in the foot. Their loss.
