Wal Mart announced it will stop selling the AR 15, the most popular rifle in America, as well as semi automatic shotguns. The retail giant claims that sales are down and that this is not politically motivated.
However, Remington Arms stated that Wal Mart accounted for 10% of the arms makers sales and if WM stopped selling them it would hurt the company. How can sales be down if WM is selling so much of one company’s goods?
Do not be fooled. Wal Mart is bowing to political pressure. There is no reason to stop selling these arms and the claim that sales are down is pure fiction. Wal Mart sells AR 15s at a reasonable price which means people get a better deal than at the gun store. And did I mention the AR 15 is the most popular rifle in America?
Wal Mart can sell what it wishes but if it is concerned about selling products that harm people (firearms do not harm people, other people do) then why stop with firearms?
Wal Mart sells all kinds of tobacco products and they absolutely harm people. Some Wal Marts sell alcohol and alcohol absolutely causes harm. More people die from tobacco related disease and more people die in drunk driving accidents than are murdered with firearms, particularly the AR 15.
Hell, Wal Mart sells all kinds of things that are dangerous and could be used to harm people. Perhaps the company should seriously consider closing down so no one will ever get harmed by a product it sells.
I have never bought a firearm from Wal Mart mostly because the ones I like are banned in the People’s Republik of Maryland. I have bought ammo there and looked at the firearms. The people I have seen there looking looked like decent people and if they decided to purchase they would have to go through a background check so it is not like Wal Mart is giving them away like candy.
In the over all scheme of things what Wal Mart sells or does not sell makes no real difference. People can buy whatever they want from other places and not worry about hurting the feelings of the morons in charge at Wally World.
But they should at least have the testicular fortitude to tell the truth. This is absolutely politically motivated.
Man up Wal Mart. We all know you are lying so just tell the truth and get it over with.
Never surrender, never submit.
