DEMAND Wal-Mart REVERSE Their POLICY

Dear Friends,

EACH & EVERY one of our forum members should, IF YOU VALUE OUR NATURAL RIGHTS, write/phone/email Wal-Mart HQ in Bentonville, Arkansas & DEMAND that the owners PUBLICLY REVERSE their policy of STOPPING selling handgun & the so-called "Shot Barreled Rifle Ammo" OR simply tell them that you & your family will NEVER shop there again.

It comes down to this: ALL companies must understand that IF they are foolish enough to KOW-TOW TO the MORON LEFT that they will lose Constitution-LOVING customers by the millions.

When I politely told a supervisor at Bentonville that our family was NOT going to shop in any of their stores again UNTIL/UNLESS that they REVERSE the "new policy" in announcements on National TV & say that the "new policy" was FOOLISH, it was OBVIOUS that he was TERRIFIED of the wrath of gun-owners.

As for me & our family, we will NOT shop at any Wal-Mart EVER AGAIN unless this STUPID ANTI-2nd Amendment policy is REVERSED PERMANENTLY.

yours, sw

bearcat6,

You just aren't what the DIMocRATS routinely call, "- - - - smelly Wal-Mart shoppers", "rural nobodies from flyover country" & country bumkins??


Fyi, I'd sooner be a HILLBILLY than a clueless "city kitty" like most DIMocRAT BIGOTS, FOOLS & DOLTS demonstrably are.

yours, sw

They shutdown comments on their Facebook page.

Who is not so foolish as to confront a Walmart Manager, now that all NRA members are declared terrorists and subject to Red Flag assaults.

CEO is one Steven J. Easterbrock

HQ address is 702 SW 8th Street, Bentonville, Arkansas, 72716-8611.

I note with some interest that there is still one Walton on the Board of Directors. Wonder how he voted on the issue? Hopefully, the comments on face book were polite and coherent.

Having been in a Wal Mart early one Sunday and having observed some of the Wal Martians, there might be some validity to some of the derogatory comments. However, since I've also observed similar appearance/sartorial disasters in other environments, it's unfair/discriminatory to single out the patrons of one particular location.

William R. Moore,

OBVIOUSLY, I cannot speak for anyone else but the members of my family but my phone call, email & letter WERE polite & courteous.

We simply said that we will take our business elsewhere UNTIL/UNLESS the "new ANTI-2nd Amendment policy" is REVERSED & that reversal is prominently featured ON NATIONAL TV & is PERMANENT.

There MUST be a price paid by major US corporations for KOW-TOWING TO the FAR LEFT.

just my OPINION, sw

Well it seems like CVS,Walgreens and a few other have followed suit on the open carry part.I try to do as little with WM as possible prefer to put my money in real grocery stores and local like Rouses and Winn Dixie.

I see a few open carry's in our local WalMart, but not many. I prefer to carry concealed myself.

I only open carry when I am in uniform (polo shirt with star and name embroidered on) and "tactical" pants. Badge on my belt. I may run (well, roll) into WalMart or Kroger's to pick up something needed on the way home.

Any other time I'm just a fat bald guy wearing an untucked shirt pushing my way through the store...

...and before any of you smart-alecks say anything, yes I remember my pants when I'm off duty...where else am I gonna put my holster?

Irish Cop & All,

CHUCKLE. - At 72YO, I've not (at least yet) gotten to the point of forgetting to put on my trousers before going out in public.

Do you agree with me that Wal-Mart MUST BE PUNISHED for "kow-towing to" the FAR LEFT??

I can do without buying the things that our family needs from Wal-Mart, until/unless the "new policy" is PUBLICLY REVERSED.. I'd bet that you & your family can easily do the same.

A personal note: I'm looking for a REMINGTON MODEL 7600P PATROL RIFLE in 7.62NATO/.308WCF, with the 16.5 " barrel. ---- Do you happen to know of a current source??
(My little Model 7615 has been "adopted by" my lady & I never see it unless I look in the rack in her CR-V. = Her comment was, "It's just GRRL-size & you have several other rifles. I'm keeping this one.")

Yours, sw

While Nagel's aren't listing any Model 7600s, they do have a number of Remington SBRs in .308 caliber. Dury's on the deep Southside, has a few Remington .308s as well. Nagel's just seem to have a better stock on hand.

You'll have to special order a Remington semi-auto. Nagel's and Dury's both have only bolt guns in .308 caliber.

csmkersh,

The model 7600P is discontinued. - I even called the factory to see if they might have one that was returned from a police agency contract.
(Had Remington merchandised the 7600P as a "brush gun" to HUNTERS & for home/farm defense, they would have done better, imo.)

Fwiw, everybody that I know who has a Model 7615 (the same pump-rifle in 5.56NATO) wouldn't part with it.
(You would not be able to get my lady to sell the one that she "adopted" out of my collection for love or money, as she says, "It's just my size.".)

yours, sw

Done with Walmart - have been for a while, it's an unappealing place what with all the "holler people" that frequent it.

I think I'm going to budget an AR pistol or two before the pantswetters catch on.

And as far as carry goes - a weapon unexpected is a weapon most effective.

Walt Graham,

I don't know about where you live but here in The Alamo City, if you see a person openly wearing a handgun, they are almost always a peace officer or an armed security guard.
(I wear my Sig-Sauer P225/P6 under my golf shirt every day.)

The VAST majority of commercial/government buildings here forbid OPEN CARRY but ALLOW concealed licensed carry.

yours, sw

On another board, someone noted that they haven't seen the allegedly banned ammo not on sale. He checked with the manager and found out that the ammo is supplied under 5 year contracts and they're going to honor the contracts. The "socially responsible" decision won't take effect until the contracts run out.

I guess "social responsiblity" takes a back seat to making short term money. Now, if every gun owner bought a share or two of WM stock and voted in the board of directors elections.......................

Thanks, Mr. Moore! I had wandered into our local WalMart and low and behold the ammo cabinet was still fully stocked (about 3 weeks ago). Of course, I had to stop a random employee and ask them to get me some help, because no one was manning the sporting goods station.

I had really thought that they would have pulled all that EVIL ammunition they were so concerned with. Now I know why.

Shoulda known. We are still a capitalist system, whether they want to admit it or not.

IrishCop,

OR (& more likely imo), WM ownership is concerned less with the approval of LEFTIST RADICALS & ANTI-2nd AMENDMENT KOOKS than they are with the opinions of/purchases by their own customers??
