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.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
Returning guns and ammo to the shelves as we speak at low risk area stores.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.
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's an invitation to the whacko's.
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.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....

This is why you should check the whole thread. Already covered that almost 24 hours ago...lolAnnnnd.... they're putting them back
That's what happens when you have a knee-jerk over-reaction at the corporate level, someone makes a decision affecting stores all over the country when the problem is really at a limited number of localities.
