Apparently you've never had contact with these people. Most know nothing about guns, yet they are selling them.

I doubt it was said to any customer or the press.

Who said he was talking to a customer or the press? They could have been talking to another manager, or a friend/family member.

So, you want to question what im saying, maybe try to start another unneeded debate that brings the mods in to clean up your mess?

His exact words, period. Friends are very candid.

Yeah, I could see guns being an annoyance to a store like Walmart.

Ahh. Makes more since if it was your friend.

Maybe clarify next time. You never said a friend that is a manager at Walmart said.

Big difference.

I never start unneeded debates. Lol

Given the political and popular negative attitude, they might be selling, and not replacing.
There isn't much of a popular negative opinion in this area. Most people here are flat out tired of hearing or talking about gun control or Sandy Hook. If you want to clear a room say the words Sandy Hook elementary. You will be standing there alone in less than a minute. Usually everyone is glued to the tube when the news is on. Now the TV is turned to another channel with no news.

Acadamy sports opens at 8:00 am and I was there around 8:15 finishing some Christmas shopping. I read this thread this morning so I thought I would walk by the gun counter and see for myself. They were boxing up 1 AR and had two people in line behind him that each said they were purchasing one as well. As far as the ammo goes, there were about 10 people on the ammo aisle so I didn't even bother to see what was left!

I have been thinking about getting my 14 year old son a single shot break action shotgun for hunting. I was in a pawn shop yesterday afternoon. I saw a really nice H&R 20 gauge. He wanted $95. I thought it was a little high. But hey what else are you going to buy for $95? I asked for a better price. He said he would pay the tax. I'll take it. He said there was a problem if it was for Christmas. I asked, "What problem?" "Background check," he replied. No Problem I can wait untill tomorrow. He told me that on a normal day it was a 30 minute wait because there were 40 to 50 people ahead of you in line waiting. He checked the insta check website. 8600 people were ahead of me! I bought my son a new Daisy 800 fps air rifle. We had an awesome time on a camping trip this summer when we realized he had serioulsy outgrown his old one.
