Wally World

The AP reports that Wal-Mart has reached an agreement with Mayor Bloomberg’s group. From what I read at first in the AP bit, it looks like Wal-Mart has just agreed to continue following federal law. No big deal. Then, another report said Wally World would set up its own trace system to do what FBI and ATF already do. And now, reports are that they will film gun sales.

Ahab says it’s a registry.

NRA statement here correctly notes it’s a bunch feel good hooey that will accomplish nothing.

Sebastian has their contact info and has written a letter.

    I got a dollar that says Wally gets a permit to build a store in NYC in the near future….

    — oops, that’s illegal online gambling, isn’t it?

    NPR reported this morning that WM would film all sales, set up a trace system, and do background checks on sales people. There was some talk of a 6 month period, I’m not sure if that is for the film or trace.
    They stated the trace system would “enable WM to determine what guns are most frequently used in crimes,” or something like that. I suppose they would stop selling those…

    I wouldn’t buy a pack of Trojan Rough Riders from Wally World.

    Can’t stand the place.
