Boycott Wal-Mart(s) ?

Wal-Mart Suspends New Ammo Orders

(CNSNEWS.COM) Wal-Mart reportedly has stopped selling ammunition ahead of the Kenyan administration’s anticipated gun control recommendations to Congress — and uncertainty over what new laws may be coming.

According to the Investment Watch blog, Wal-Mart Corporation will no longer place new ammunition orders pending “the upcoming decision on the Second Amendment.”

I almost never call for a boycott.  However, in this case, and even though their Chinese crap is so much cheaper than our own products, it is time to send the fools a distinct message.  Just say NO.

    I think this is just so they don’t ‘load up’ on ammo they are not sure they can sell in the future. They still sell guns and ammo, so a boycott may be premature.

      Why would they think that they won’t be able to sell this inventory? Unless they were willing to abide and go along? Is that not enough reason to boycott the (would-be) anti-second company? Maybe a billion dollar loss in revenues will convince them otherwise.

    About mid morning Mary and I heard this news on the radio. When I was a cop in Louisiana I worked part time in the stock room for almost a year. Understanding their restocking policy (as it was done then!) I find it difficult to believe they are doing this out of fear of overstocking. However things could have changed since 1985-86. As I understand what is written on the internet, Wal-Mart is selling what is in stock in the stores and Distribution Centers and will not re-order when that is gone.

    As I started this comment my wife Mary called the Wal-Mart in Clinton, Arkansas. The clerk in sporting goods told her they will continue to sell what ammo they have and re-ordering will be very slow in the future until they get a “ruling from Obama on the 2nd Amendment”.

    Whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean! Did I miss something? I need to go talk to that young clerk!

      This is the only “ruling” I need.

      Amendment II

      A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

        I agree, Danny. Wal-Mart is getting political. They are easily bribed and all too willing to comply. Good Comrades, they are.

    future ammo orders might get seized by BATF = no profits on future ammo sales = lost profits

    so why stock up on anything that might cost you money in lost sales

    wondering just ammo do you need?

      Not for me. My gun fell out of the canoe while paddling across the Rio Grande.

    Right on CC! Mary and I quit going there. And I’ve said the same about the store going to hell in a hand basket when the “Old Man” left us. Those NWO idiots are running it now.

      You mean the Metros? As in Metro Sexuals? 🙂

      Yeah, those Walton’s are good people.

    Yeah Soffitrat, that’s the ones I’m talking about!

    I met Mr. Walton at the opening of the new store in Pineville Louisiana, I think it was 1985. He impressed the heck out of me, he was genuine and down to earth.

      Believe it or not, I was there! Not for the Wal-Mart opening, but I was there. We (Sam and I) both stayed at the same hotel. Best Western, I believe. On Hwy 71 (I-49)? In the middle of town? Alexandria.

    You must be talking about the Best Western across the road from the Walmart store and Kingsville shopping center?! It was right next to the intersection with the freeway! Since then they have moved about a half mile north of that location and built a super store. We might have crossed paths that day! I was working for the Pineville City Police at the time and worked at the Walmart stock room on my days off. Dan Brooks was the manager then and was a fine man, damned good supervisor. He was relocated because of some allegations of sexual harassment by one of the female employees. She later admitted to making up the accusation because she was mad at him. The bitch was fired but the company would not bring Brooks back. She was on my shit list but I never caught her out on the road anywhere! Lucky for her I guess.

    Screw WalMart…I call them the CHINA store. I know they are not the only ones involved in selling Chinese junk, but then this American born company hasn’t made much of an effort toward pushing American products in my opinion since Mr. Walton died. Sam Walton based that company on a “buy American” ideal, I wonder what he would think today if he could stroll through the corporate office in Bentonville, Arkansas?

    Another reason I don’t care much for Walmart…their CEO Doug McMillon. I think this will
    explain a lot of the way they do things, they aren’t part of the solution, their leadership is
    part of the problem!

    “CSRI (Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative) Director Jane Nelson speaks at a panel at the Brookings Institution on “The Private Sector and Sustainable Development: Market-Based Solutions for Addressing Global Challenges.” The audio file from the event, which was moderated by Brookings’ Kemal Dervis, includes Nelson’s fellow panelists Doug McMillon, president and CEO of Walmart International, and Bruce McNamer, president and CEO of TechnoServe.”

    This gathering was being conducted under the advocacy of the United Nations and their Agenda 21 program. Think about that for a moment or two and see where it takes you!

      Wow! It’s hard to imagine that any working American would support these fools. I know where they office… I know it well.

    This Colorado Sheriff is hitting back where it hurts…right in the pockets of those that bow to the anti-gun crowd! This Sheriff has his thinking cap on!

    “Sheriff Ronald B. Bruce has been the Sheriff of Hinsdale County in Colorado since his election
    in 2007. He contacted Freedom Outpost to let us know that he stands with Sheriff Scott Berry of Georgia and will not take his business to others who will discriminate against law abiding citizens
    in selling semi-automatic rifles, but stated unashamedly that with his dying breath he will protect current and existing Constitutional rights of those who elected him.”

    “That’s not all, Bruce had already taken initiative by closing an account his office had with online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt. He wrote, “We cancelled our account with Cheaper Than Dirt after they quickly almost doubled their price for .223/5.56 and .308/7.62mm ammunition. They also suspended all “assault” type firearms sales to re-evaluate their position on this…read, figure
    how much they could get away with in the escalation of their prices for semi-auto carbines.”
