Walmart has removed gun and ammunition from display in thousands of its stores in the United States, citing concerns of "civil unrest". Customers will still be able to buy guns and ammunition on request. It is not yet known how long firearms will be removed from the sales floor.

Snoofy feel free not to arm yourself. I personally like having a 9MM in my lockbox next to my bed. I bought some blink cameras for my house as well. Interlopers will not be allowed in my home.

Why is Walmart banning guns, that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

They are still allowing people to come in?

What a bunch maroons. Why would they remove something that doesn't kill anyone (guns) and not ban something that kills people (people)

What a bunch of snowflakes.

Go 'Merica

"Why would they remove something that doesn't kill anyone (guns) and not ban something that kills people (people)."

You just described co-dependency.

Walmart makes business decisions ~ not emotional decisions.

They're taking them off the shelves because they know that if Trump wins, crybabies will riot, and take them off their shelves to use them. Pretty obvious really Bocaink.

I think you got that backwards.

Trump is the one who has White Supremacists on speed dial.

Doesn't it make you sad, to be old and afraid?

It makes me sad just thinking about you.

If you really believe that, then you must also think the California ten day waiting period is a wise policy. Gives wannabe rioters ten days to calm down.

Probably not if Biden wins. Walmart isn't taking any chances. Dead shoppers littering the isles isn't good for public relations.

#10 knowing/understanding what their reasoning is doesn't mean I back it.

In principle I'm much more skeptical of a law that would be enacted to because of how a crowd acts in a riot. Or more accurately how a crowd can't act appropriately.

To the point of something that is an actual fact, the Cali law. I struggle with a waiting period as constitutional, while not disliking the intent of counteracting a heat of the moment crime.

I'm more concerned that if Trump loses the Basement Bois Battalion is going to come out and start shooting at houses with Biden signs.

If you read the article, it's because of "civil unrest".
They are afraid of wharf rats breaking in and looting and stealing the guns.
If someone commits a crime with a looted gun, Walmart could be sued out of existence.

It actually makes sense in a lot of places, like maybe Philadelphia?

Rioters stealing shoes or TVs is bad. Rioters stealing guns would be worse.

Not that old but you could be the baddest 22 year old the planet and if 5 guys show up at your door with pipes and knives you are getting messed up. By the time you call 911 and the cops show up you could be hamburger meat. I'd rather be prepared than just hope nothing bad ever happens to me.

A much better preparation would be moving to an area not riddled with crime.

Have you tried living in a rich white neighborhood? Then you could like, go outside and stuff.

The firearms are still there. You have to get an employee to purchase one. You already had to get an employee to purchase one though and go through a standard NICS background check.

If Trumpy wins so will I.

But I will just use the bathroom at the airport as I am heading for Canada.

Or France.

Or French Canada. Or French Polynesia. Whoever will take me.

There's only one side that constantly actually elects Hollyweirdos to office. It ain't the Dems so I can't understand how this trope still has legs.
