The left looks a little scared of the muscle wal-mart could wield. Or this could just be a puff piece to distract us. Idunno. If the left really is afraid of them I'll start buying the majority of my goodies at wal-mart if it'll help em.
I think they have a pretty good read on it. Personally I don't see anybody going to Walmart for private party transfers though. Here in CA a background check and 10 day waiting period are required for all transfers (meaning you must go through an FFL for any transfer). I don't like Walmart anyhow but when I do a transfer I will go to a small store that does it for the same price as a big outfit 10 times out of 10.
I agree that Walmart will probably oppose any bans for the same reasoins as the Nation writer stated. Its not in their best interest. Money before politics, and the Waltons have a pretty good record supporting the 2A.
I read on some threads of two Walmarts that were told not to order ammo. One poster said an employee told him they were already has plans on what to replace the ammo display. Which makes me wonder if they caved?
But again they did take Modern Sporting Rifles off the shelves in certain areas. But they did not to the best of my knowledge take them down here. Matter of fact while I was in Wally World today a man was looking at a Sig .22 still on the shelf.
But you heard this on the internet and I heard it 2nd or 3rd hand. Like was said, just have to wait until the dust settles.
In Central Florida there is a ton of Wal Marts, and about 1/3 of them carry guns, all carry ammo, and none of the ones I have been to have indicated there is any movement to discontinue the practice.
The inference in that article is Obummer and Delaware's No 1 boy are about to offer a deal to Wal Mart to have them be the only one to do background checks. Wal Mart is not currently set up to do that, though that could change, and why would you want to discontinue the current system of FFLs? Other then to mightily delay the process, which might be the goal.
I don't think Wal Mart will bite. That Lib that wrote that was fishing I think.
