Walmart has announced today that it will be banning all handgun ammunition sales in its stores, banning open carry, and is imploring all their customers not to carry weapons on their premises, as the corporate giant escalates their attack on gun rights.
NEW: Walmart ends all handgun ammunition sales and asks customers not to carry guns into stores
— Ana Cabrera (@AnaCabrera) September 3, 2019
“We have a long heritage as a company of serving responsible hunters and sportsmen and women, and we’re going to continue doing so,” said Walmart’s CEO Doug McMillon in a memo released to employees Tuesday afternoon.
However, in actuality, that is nothing but double talk, and their announcement is a major capitulation to gun grabbers. They are banning the sale of all short-barrel and handgun ammo, including 5.56 and .223 caliber ammo. Users of the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15, will have to go elsewhere to buy their rounds from now on.
“In a complex situation lacking a simple solution, we are trying to take constructive steps to reduce the risk that events like these will happen again,” McMillon wrote in his memo. “The status quo is unacceptable.”
In addition, the store is telling its customers not to carry inside the store, even if they are lawfully permitted to do so unless they are law enforcement personnel. Despite these restrictive infringements, McMillon claims Walmart wil continue treating “law-abiding customers with respect” as workers will adopt a “non-confrontational approach.”
This ban is coming despite the fact that an armed citizen prevent a mass shooting from happening inside a Walmart just last year, saving countless lives in the process.
Walmart has previously shown hostility against the 2nd Amendment, indicating their support of gun control on several different occasions. They stopped selling AR-style rifles back in 2015, and are now supporting a nationwide ban on so-called assault rifles and stronger background checks to be enacted at the federal level.
“In the national conversation around gun safety, we’re encouraged that broad support is emerging to strengthen background checks and to remove weapons from those who have been determined to pose an imminent danger,” McMillon said after the El Paso, TX mass shooting inside a Walmart last month.
“The reauthorization of the assault weapons ban should be debated to determine its effectiveness in keeping weapons made for war out of the hands of mass murderers,” he added.
McMillon has been laying the groundwork for these new company-wide policies for weeks now, as Walmart is the latest large corporate retailer to stab gun rights proponents and advocates for the constitution in the back.
“We will strive to use these experiences to identify additional actions we can take to strengthen our processes, improve our technology and create an even safer environment in our stores,” McMillon said.
“We’re also thinking through the broader issues related to gun violence and things we should do to help create safer communities,” he added.
The free market, which has become a deity of sorts to many conservatives and libertarians, is yet again failing to protect Americans’ rights. Despite widespread market demand for guns and ammo, more corporate entities are turning against the 2nd Amendment, and giving huge public relations’ victories to gun-grabbing leftists.

2.5 Million Guns Sold In March, SMASHING Previous US Record For Gun Buys
Americans want their guns.
Federal firearms licensees sold more than 2.5 million guns to the American public in March 2020, easily smashing the previously held record for the most gun sales in an individual month by more than a million transactions.
The gun sale data has been gauged by Small Arms Analytics, and the estimation of a total of 2,583,238 sales has been pulled from raw FBI National Instant Criminal Background Checks System data. It’s actually possible that the total figure of guns sales is a bit higher, considering gun sales between private individuals are not subject to the NICS system.
Not only does the figure of 2.5 million gun sales surpass the previous monthly record holder from March 2019, but it does so in a resounding fashion. 1.4 million guns were sold in that month, meaning that March 2020 surpassed the record by approximately 1.1 million sales.
A breakdown of the sales between long guns and handguns was provided by Small Arms Analytics. Handgun sales in particular spiked exponentially, easily surpassing previous quarterly highs in gun sales that preceded major American elections.
An alternate system of quantifying gun purchases utilized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation verified that March was in fact a record-setting month for gun sales.
The surge in gun and ammunition sales in the wake of the nascent Chinese coronavirus epidemic is well documented at this point, with gun and ammunition retailers reporting selling out their entire inventories and still not coming close to meeting demand.
As Americans arm themselves in unprecedented record-setting numbers, some major American municipalities and states have taken it upon themselves to wholly shut down the lawful firearms commerce and manufacturing industries. However, several of them have been stopped cold in their tracks, in light of federal guidelines from the Trump administration that recognizes businesses serving the Second Amendment community as “essential.”
New Jersey and Los Angeles County are among the two biggest governmental entities forced to walk back arbitrary commands that gun stores close in light of the guidelines.
Dubious state of emergency declarations that try to implement backdoor gun control in a hour where more Americans are seeking to lawfully arm themselves than ever before simply aren’t going to work, judging from historical amounts of armaments freedom-loving patriots have secured in the last month alone.
