Wal-Mart caved to pressure?

I read the below link and then went to fill up one of our vehicles. While I was down there at the Wal-Mart, I went back to sporting goods and confirmed the below information. I was told by the guy working the counter that they are pulling all guns and ammunition on Friday. Apparently the "meeting" they had with the administration went the way the administration wanted.

Walmart is like the abused spouse that keeps taking her squeeze back. The progressives have hated Walmart from the beginning!

Well I'm not shopping there anymore. So thats 100 bucks a week they wont see. Target, and others like that don't sell guns or ammo so they have no stake in it and I can get everything "grocery wise" there just as I did at Wal mart.

I am just telling all of you exactly what I was told at my local Wal-Mart by one of the guys who runs the sporting goods department. He was even contemplating buying a Marlin Model 60 before they have to send them back. There seems to be many stories going around to confuse the public such as this following one: http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/walmart-r...ed-ammo-story/

...but I guess we will know soon enough if they caved by what is left in the stores in a week or two.

i have received word via texas state rifle association that we are looking at following the wyoming model if it is a viable option (its in the courts now)

can you file an injunction against an executive order?

Quote:
It was all focusing on enforcing existing law, administering things like improving the background database, things like that that do not involve a change in the law but enforcing and making sure that the present law is administered as well as possible,” said Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.).

according to this statement the executive orders will be normal legal ones.

midway is likely just making an honest mistake and wig gin out (kind of like the companies that just flat don't ship anything to california)

and who knows what walmart is pulling guns for maybe thats just your store.

Any EO which goes outside the existing statutory framework is highly likely to be challenged by the filing of a suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia seeking, among other things, a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the EO. The judge will have to decide whether to issue an injunction or not.

In a way, I can see WalMart stopping new orders until they see what's going to happen. It wouldn't make sense from a bean-counter's perspective to run a few million dollars worth of ammo into their distribution pipeline only to find out they can't sell it anymore. Then what would they do with it?

They must've got pretty spooked by the politicos in D.C. I've heard them talk about limiting volume sales and internet sales, but the Feds would have to really be planning something stupid to prevent typical over-the-counter sales.

Not that this makes a good move from a PR perspective. But then again, look at the bulk of their customer base. I'm guessing there's a ton of entitlement folks in there - the 47% figure is a little higher in that crowd for sure.

...

The blogosphere has exploded with outrage in response to news that Walmart is suspending ammunition sales in anticipation of the Obama administration’s gun-control recommendations to Congress – but the retail giant tells WND the reports aren’t true.

“That information is inaccurate,” said Ashley Hardie, a spokeswoman located at Walmart’s corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.

“No,” Hardie said. “We’re continuing to serve our customers as we have in the past.”

She said Walmart’s ammunition sales policy has not changed, even amid talk of gun-control legislation in Washington, D.C.

To hell with Wallmart

As a business man, I can tell you their practices would be considered in-American to most on this board.

I went down there and bought some groceries today and checked sporting goods. The guns are still there and what little ammo they have is still there, so apparently it wasn't "pulled from the shelves" as the rumor online said and from what several of their employees that I asked also said was to happen.
