Three weeks ago I talked with a guy who works at the gun counter/sporting goods, first of the year they will not be selling guns and ammo anymore anyway. The 2 stores near me where not going to stock anymore guns and start discountinueing ammo anyway

The manager at the store here said they will not be selling any handgun or handgun ammo. But they will continue to sell rifles, shotguns and shotgun ammo. And the will still sell .22 lr if they can get it.

But this is the same as they put in place several months ago.

On Wednesday I was in a Walmart (I didn’t want to be) and saw maybe 20 long arms in the display. There was ammo, but I couldn’t tell you what it was.

Really? Because as of 12 hours ago, Walmart announced it is returning firearms and ammunition to their sales floors.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/30/walmart-returns-firearms-ammunition-to-us-store-floors.html

Walmart said on Friday it has begun returning firearms and ammunitions to the floors of its U.S. stores a day after the world's largest retailer said it had removed these products to protect customers and employees as tensions across the country rise.

"After civil unrest earlier this week resulted in damage to several of our stores ... we asked stores to move firearms and ammunition from the sales floor .... As the current incidents have remained geographically isolated, we have made the decision to begin returning these products to the sales floor today," the company said.

Maybe. OTOH it could be a "wait and see" or the result of a pro-gun push back or even anticipation of election results, pro-gun SCOTUS.... Could be any number of behind the scenes chess moves - or it could just be an OOPS moment.

It was probably push back from their own regional management. When they tried to do the no "short barrel rifle" ammo sales and the no carry suggestion here in CO, the district and regional managers revolted and only the stores in Aurora and Denver followed through.

So what I read on the interwebz is...they hid them so they won't get stolen or possibly used during the looting and the riots next week.

Seriously. People are boarding up shops, setting up all sorts of barriers, and getting ready to ride out the storm.

Not out here...out here it will just be a party when Trump wins. Green jello and dutch oven potatoes for everyone.

That's a good thing. Tells me they're convinced Trump will win.
