New York—Walmart says it will discontinue the sale of handgun ammunition and also publicly request that customers refrain from openly carrying firearms in stores even where state laws allow it. The announcement comes just days after a mass shooting claimed seven lives in Odessa, Texas and follows two other back-to-back shootings last month, one of them at a Walmart store. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based discounter said Tuesday it will stop selling short-barrel and handgun ammunition after it runs out of its current inventory. It will also discontinue handgun sales in Alaska, marking its complete exit from handguns

Comments:

They're happy to continue sales of the dangerous SSRI antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs often used by people who "just snap," though.

Yes, 1, for the same reason big cats love old, weak, disabled, or young and wobbly antelopes.

This is CNN, will wait a few days to see if this really is true. Walmart has in recent years been much more difficult to buy ammunition - locked up, find a clerk to ask for the key, then they at best they only have 1-2 boxes. Have shifted purchasing ammo to online stores several years ago. Typically only go to Walmart in the morning, before the 'crowd' gets there, so open carry never an issue, and threat level is much lower without their typical shoppers you find later in the day. Will shift the few purchases I do make there to online and avoid the place completely, especially now they are waving the flag for shooters to add this to their gun-free-zone list of places that bans guns, but does not have armed security in the store, like movie theaters.

This is partly due to the (expletive deleted) morons who just had to push the limits and walk through the stores with rifles and such. Way to go you (double expletives deleted) jerks! Anyway, I didn't even know they still sold handguns. And I stopped buying ammo there long ago since they rarely had anything I wanted. As for carrying in the store....well, concealed means no one will know unless things hit the fan.

Just great. Now WalMart will be another store where criminals can shoot “customers in a barrel” without fear of retribution. How long before CNN will be reporting a mass shooting at a WalMart near you because some nut-job didn’t care about Walmart’s policy of no-guns-in-the-store?

No one knows I'm armed if I'm carrying concealed, which I do. Wal-Mart is close by and they have ammunition running out the wazoo, here in my neck of the woods, so will hate having to go 25 to 40 miles for ammo. Of course, it's actually cheaper to buy ammo in bulk, online. I get email offers every day, advertising bulk ammo, so Wally World won't be missed. I try to buy groceries at a local store, Rouses, so I don't need Wal-mart for much of anything. I'm curious about the feelings of the shareholders, though.

In New Mexico, Walmarts have had signs on the doors for years saying no Open Carry, but Concealed Carry is OK. I don't care what they have on their doors, I'm going to Concealed Carry, especially in dangerous environments such as Walmart. If you don't "print," no one should ever know. Soon I'll have to take my business elsewhere, anyway. Can't buy ammunition, and the store shelves are being taken over by yuppie, healthy foods, and I can no longer find what I've been buying for years.

Am not an expert but would be willing to bet the most common ammo sold in the US is 22 Long Rifle. There are 22 LR pistols and rifles. How long does the barrel have to be? The reason all those people were killed at the Walmart in El Paso is they didn't have armed security guards. Don't know if it's a gun free zone philosophy or they are just too cheap to pay for guards. OK. I shop at Walmart. Other than amazon what choice do I have?

Do the words "Concealed Carry" mean anything? Concealed means you don't "print" yourself or brandish your weapon. Ask a stock clerk to get the item on the top shelf for. Cabala's ships ammo to most states (CA no)

Walmart bows down and kneels to kiss the ring of the gun-grabbing anti 2nd Amendment mob. This should boost business for local gun shops and sporting goods stores in their areas. I am very disappointed in Walmart.

I think of it this way, there are many places to buy ammo, we get ours online or at a local gun shop. I think it’s the liability that could be forced by the left wing mobs that could sue the daylight out of a left hating corporation like Walmart. They have deep pockets and the fascists know it.

A few armed citizens in the Wally World in El Paso, and we would have a very different story today. Political correctness is destructive and evil, and it's going to cost them dearly now!!! Instead of several times a week, I expect to shop at Wally World a couple of times a year (only when I cannot find something anywhere else) from now on. I can't say I'm going to miss Wally World any more than I miss Target -- which is not at all!!!

You don't need the government to restrict your rights when the government can, and likely did, put pressure on individual businesses to do what they can't. Same was true of the outsourcing of the intelligence use by the previous admin. who had foreign sources work on a target that they themselves could not do. Or, with the big internet companies shadow-banning, or altering an algorithm, to minimize the reach of certain people (i.e. Republican-leaning, or Conservative). Think things are tough now, just wait until the Democrats take back control of the WH and the Senate. They don't care if it's 4 or 8 years from now, but when they do, they'll be ready to really unleash the power of government against her citizens, right after amnesty is granted to 20-25 million people living in the country.

Just keep your old inventory, your prices are not that much better than any of the other box stores. To be honest we only buy fruits and vegetables at Wal Mart. We have other choices for those products. Keep your social justice and psychiatric pills we can buy them some place other than Wal Mart too.

This little juke toward the left is going to cost Walmart billions of dollars. You won't be seeing too many MAGA hats there any more so the democrats have lost one of their talking points. My local Walmart is within walking distance and I probably spend $500 per month there for food etc. I will never see the inside of it again. I am also licensed to conceal carry and will not do that in a Walmart either. Atten Walmart customers! You are on your own. If a nut case lets loose in your store, run like hell because nobody there will be able to stop the killer. The police will arrive in time to count the bodies. What a stupid move.

In Texas they must post a 30.06 sign to stop concealed carry in the stores. Without that sign it's nothing more that a request which I can legally ignore. If Walmart posts a 30.06 sign then I'll never step foot in the store. Gun free zones is the stupidest legislation ever passed! All that legislation does is keep law abiding citizens unarmed. My solution to never go to a "Gun Free Zone".

What are they hoping to accomplish here? If they are trying to appease the gun control crowd, they won’t. If they are trying ti stop the next mass shooting by some lunatic they won’t do that either. If they are trying to make ammo less available don’t make me laugh. This is an empty useless gesture that will do nothing but p**s off their customers.

Not seeing a lot of mass shootings with handguns so this is just virtue signalling from Walmart. I appreciated reasonably priced ammo, convenient and no shipping costs. Now not. Walmart has to know pr hits are a two way street, the lefty mob must scare them most. If this report is true, it's a big deal.

What I don't understand is why there wasn't a single Walmart shopper who was armed that day in El Paso. Even if there were one, when the shooting starts, you have to ask yourself, "do I really want to get in to a gunfight with someone who has a semi-automatic rifle?" If not, why are you armed, if not to save innocent lives?
