I don’t shop there anyway

So, I can’t really say I’m boycotting them:

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said Thursday the company supports strengthening some gun measures in the United States after more than 20 people were killed in an attack on a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

    I used to buy belts there, but they stopped carrying the good ones – the ones that were cheap but sturdy, and lasted five years. I bought 2 ten years ago, and now I’m looking, but not there.

    I heard it reported that particular Walmart was posted “gun free” since it adjacent to a mall. Not sure about that, but if so, I think it’s true that over 98% Of shootings occur where guns are banned. On the other hand, one of the wounded said his mother decided not to carry her gun that day and he wished she had it. Here in Middle Tennessee, the Walmart’s are not gun free. I always carry, so making them gun free would probably keep me from going there.

    The only “common sense” legislation would be to REPEAL the Federal Gun Free zones, especially schools and enact national CCW reciprocity in accordance with the Constitution thus eliminating slave states!

    Corporate leftists are a big problem that is getting bigger.

    I’m not boycotting them. I just haven’t bought anything from them for over a decade because of principle. As in I have principles and none of the top Walmart management appears to.

    Walmart here allows open carry as well as CCW (Texas.) I have no complaints with them.

    Just don’t bring in your AR/AK while dressed as a commando. Since Walmart has ‘no gun signs’ that is CRIMINAL TRESPASS. Licensed CCW is ok, just walking in with a gun is not.

    Notice the use of “strengthen” to refer to the violation of civil rights. When rights are acknowledged and upheld, the laws are said to be “weak” or “lax” and when rights are violated at the wholesale level, and coercion is perpetrated by our own government, then laws are said to be “strong” and “loopholes” are being closed.

    It’s very insidious (i.e. progressive) how the leftist agitators weasel their way into our own heads.

    Let’s fix the quote then;

    Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said Thursday the company supports weakening the protections of civil rights in the United States after more than 20 people were killed in an attack on a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Thus he wishes to make more people vulnerable to future attacks.

    We must learn to call a shit-weasel a genuine shit-weasel without referring to him as “strengthening” anything.

    I’ve been to a Walmart once this year. Bought a ten-pack of t-shirts that were on special. The same stated size I always buy, but now they’re making them smaller. ^_^

    I live in Chicago. There are more Target, Walgreens, Jewel-Osco, and Home Depot locations than Walmarts, and all closer to me.

    But kids and the elderly dying in foreign sweat shops to create their cheap products to raise their bottom line is A-OK

    Unless you also “boycott” aka don’t patronize or use, Amazon, Facebook et al, then jumping on Wally for doing what big biz does which is follow the wind to make more money with no regard for what is just, then you are pissing into that wind and being a hypocrite to boot. That said, I hate the place for many reasons not just that one, and do my best to avoid stepping into one. Yet when ammo was hard to find they had more than anybody, even my wholesalers… so guess where I went? Suspect it’s the same for most folks.

    Boycott them because (if) they stop selling guns? They stopped selling anything I want years ago. I buy my guns at a gun store because I want it to be there when I need something special ordered or I need gunsmith service.

    OTOH, I buy groceries there every week.

    BTW, I work (at one remove) FOR Walmart. A-B in Rogers, AR. We (my office) sells them beer.

    And (unless there is some “other” rule/law that conflicts with it) “official” Walmart policy is if it’s legal then we’re okay with it. IOW, open and concealed carry in a WM in TX is legal and a TX Walmart shouldn’t have any 30.06 or 30.07 signs. If they’re there, call corporate and they WILL come down (that’s manager overstepping his authority not a directive from the home office).

    I also have heard though that this particular Walmart was on leased land and the developer put the sign requirements in the contract – no clue if that’s true and no way to verify that.

    As Todd points out, the Walton family has a problem. Apparently, their father Sam didn’t bother to instill any morals in his kids.

    Walmart became infamous for bankrupting their suppliers. They would become the vendor’s biggest customer, then push them to increase their size, and finally demand they start cutting costs after reaching the point that there was no other buyers that could support the business. The end result quite often was the collapse of the vendor no matter what they did in response.

    When this predatory activity became public, businesses began telling Walmart to go away, they weren’t going to sell to them at all. That was some years ago, and I haven’t heard anything about this for a while. No idea if they are still doing this to any extent, but when you see them crow about a reduced price on a product, there is a good chance this is why.

    20 killed in El Paso? How about the hundreds shot and killed in Chicago each year? Jack.

  13. Ron W Says:

    @Jack, those killings don’t work for the reactionary gun control narrative, so they’re not newsworthy.
