After a string of deadly shootings in the United States, Walmart is caving to liberals and just betrayed the U.S. Constitution.
As reported by Business Insider, Walmart announced on Tuesday that it will be banning shoppers from openly carrying guns in its stores and ending the sale of some types of ammunition at its stores.
“After selling through our current inventory commitments, we will discontinue sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber that, while commonly used in some hunting rifles, can also be used in large capacity clips on military-style weapons,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a memo to employees.
In recent weeks, a deranged gunman carried out separate attacks at Walmarts in Mississippi and Texas.
McMillon wrote in the memo that Walmart will also end the sale of handguns in Alaska — the only state where Walmart sells handguns — and stop selling ammunition for all handguns nationwide.
“We know these decisions will inconvenience some of our customers, and we hope they will understand,” McMillon said. “As a company, we experienced two horrific events in one week, and we will never be the same.”
McMillon said Walmart will continue to sell the shotguns and rifles that it currently carries.
“We are trying to take constructive steps to reduce the risk that events like these will happen again,” McMillon said.
McMillon also said he sent letters to the White House and Congress encouraging stronger gun control laws and measures.
“We encourage our nation’s leaders to move forward and strengthen background checks and to remove weapons from those who have been determined to pose an imminent danger,” McMillon said. “We do not sell military-style rifles, and we believe the reauthorization of the Assault Weapons ban should be debated to determine its effectiveness.”
“There have been multiple incidents since El Paso where individuals attempting to make a statement and test our response have entered our stores carrying weapons in a way that frightened or concerned our associates and customers,” McMillon said.
He added: “These incidents are concerning and we would like to avoid them, so we are respectfully requesting that customers no longer openly carry firearms into our stores or Sam’s Clubs in states where ‘open carry’ is permitted — unless they are authorized law enforcement officers.”
This is nothing more than Walmart caving to pressure from liberals and agreeing to trample on the Second Amendment.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic allies know that anti-gun laws will not and do not work — but they are pushing these bills anyway because they are popular with liberals.
Pelosi is already promising to hold votes on several anti-gun laws, all of which aim to erode as much of the Second Amendment as possible.
While most Americans want to keep people safe, it’s important to note that these far-left laws would severely trample on the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.
The best way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good gun who has a gun.
