Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reacted to Walmart’s decision to ban open carry, discontinue the sale of certain ammunition, and push the Trump administration to pursue greater gun control measures, declaring that its action is “not nearly enough,” Breitbart reports.
“This is a good start—but it’s not nearly enough,” Warren wrote in response to Walmart’s decision. “Walmart can and should do much more. And we need real gun reform, now.”

All Walmart has done is turn anyone who shops in their stores into walking victims and proved by their own actions that they have 0 regard for the Second Amendment and the rights of American citizens.
Just like Target and the bathroom issue from a couple of years ago it didn’t have a serious impact on their business model. Walmart knows that the majority of their shoppers are women and families to which firearms related issues are not important. If the guns and ammo counters were to disappear tomorrow most Walmart shoppers would not notice or care.
The Democrats are having a feeding frenzy over this and this is what happens when you give in just a little to them, they will never be satisfied until they abolish the Second Amendment.

Walmart will discontinue all sales of short-barrel rifle ammunition that can be used with “military style” weapons, discontinue sales of handgun ammunition and stop all handgun sales in Alaska, following two shootings at Walmart stores this summer.
We must keep up the pressure, defeat the corporate gun lobby and enact common sense gun safety legislation.

The National Rifle Association released the following statement today regarding Walmart’s decision to change its firearms and ammunition policies:
“The strongest defense of freedom has always been our free-market economy. It is shameful to see Walmart succumb to the pressure of the anti-gun elites. Lines at Walmart will soon be replaced by lines at other retailers who are more supportive of America’s fundamental freedoms. The truth is Walmart’s actions today will not make us any safer. Rather than place the blame on the criminal, Walmart has chosen to victimize law-abiding Americans. Our leaders must be willing to approach the problems of crime, violence and mental health with sincerity and honesty.”
