SNOWFLAKES: Walmart Bans Toy Guns After Florida Shooting

Published

on

In a statement on Walmart’s website, they followed the lead of other major retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods in caving in to the anti-gun hysteria. Walmart’s statement announces that they will not selling firearms or ammunition to anyone under 21 years of age, despite the law allowing them to.

They also stated that they would no longer sell toys that look like “assault-style rifles,” in an odd move that virtually nobody was demanding. Walmart has already caved in to anti-gun hysteria, removing “assault-style” rifles from their shelves in 2015.

Here is Walmart’s statement in full:

“In light of recent events, we’ve taken an opportunity to review our policy on firearm sales. Going forward, we are raising the age restriction for purchase of firearms and ammunition to 21 years of age. We will update our processes as quickly as possible to implement this change.

In 2015, Walmart ended sales of modern sporting rifles, including the AR-15. We also do not sell handguns, except in Alaska where we feel we should continue to offer them to our customers. Additionally, we do not sell bump stocks, high-capacity magazines and similar accessories. We have a process to monitor our eCommerce marketplace and ensure our policies are applied.

We take seriously our obligation to be a responsible seller of firearms and go beyond Federal law by requiring customers to pass a background check before purchasing any firearm. The law would allow the sale of a firearm if no response to a background check request has been received within three business days, but our policy prohibits the sale until an approval is given.

We are also removing items from our website resembling assault-style rifles, including nonlethal airsoft guns and toys. Our heritage as a company has always been in serving sportsmen and hunters, and we will continue to do so in a responsible way.”

New Jersey Gun Stores Reopened After State of Emergency Shutdown

New Jersey’s governor is vehemently anti-gun.

Published

on

Gun stores in the state of New Jersey are free to reopen for business as of Wednesday, with the state’s Governor rescinding an order that they had to be closed as a part of the state’s Chinese coronavirus state of emergency declaration.

Governor Phil Murphy announced gun stores would be free to re-open at a Monday press conference. The change in policy follows a declaration by the Trump administration that firearms retail and manufacturing businesses are to be considered “essential” under Department of Homeland Security guidelines.

Murphy took a shot at the DHS guidelines, stating that considering firearms businesses essential “wouldn’t be my definition, but that’s the definition at the federal level and I didn’t get a vote on that.” He had earlier argued against the notion of lawful firearms ownership at a coronavirus press conference, stating that “a safer society for my taste has fewer guns and not more guns.

New Jersey is the latest pro-gun control state that has overridden orders that gun retailers and manufacture close. Gun stores in Los Angeles County are finally reopening following a prolonged back-and-forth battle between the county government and county sheriff Alex Villanueva, with the sheriff now being removed as the county disaster executive authority.

The New Jersey state police had stopped conducting background checks for firearms transfers when Murphy originally ordered gun stores closed on March 21st, essentially shutting down the lawful commerce of firearms throughout the entire state. New Jersey has quite possibly the most draconian anti-gun rights laws in the country, routinely being ranked among the worst states for Second Amendment protections.

Americans have rushed to lawfully acquire firearms since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic in the country. Gun and ammo retailers have reported that they’ve sold out of guns and commonly used calibers of ammunition. There’s probably not much more anti-gun states and municipalities could do to erode trust in their authority than to arbitrarily dictate that their citizens cannot acquire guns.
