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

“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.
The NRA Files for Bankruptcy
The Pro-Second Amendment Organization is Now Moving to Texas
On January 15, 2021, the National Rifle Association announced that it would be filing for bankruptcy.
The long-time advocate of gun ownership revealed that this bankruptcy is part of its new plan to restructure as a Texas non-profit organization. It has been motivated to do so because it believes that New York has a corrupt political and regulatory environment. Before the NRA’s decision to file bankruptcy, it was registered in the Empire State.
A few months ago, New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit that threatened to dissolve the NRA. The suit contends that the NRA has been involved in cases of fraud and mismanagement of funds. Following New York’s attempts to persecute the NRA, President Donald Trump suggested that the NRA move to Texas, a state that treats pro-Second Amendment organizations much better. Trump stated, “I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life, and I’ve told them that for a long time.”
“This strategic plan represents a pathway to opportunity, growth and progress,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre declared in a statement. “Obviously, an important part of this plan is ‘dumping New York.’ The NRA is pursuing reincorporating in a state that values the contributions of the NRA, celebrates our law-abiding members, and will join us as a partner in upholding cn.
“The @NRA‘s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt. While we review its bankruptcy filing, we will not allow the @NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight,” James said in a tweet that she posted on January 15 following the bankruptcy announcement.

Indeed, the NRA’s decision to move to the Lone Star State is a wise decision. Texas’ gun laws are much better than New York’s. Furthermore, Texas actually bothers to protect free speech and the state government will not go on petty vendettas against right-wing organizations that leftist politicians hate.-
Mass polarization is here to stay in American politics, so it would be wise for right wing organizations in solidly Blue states to consider relocating to friendlier political climes.
