Walmart is out of the gun business!

Thats the word alright! aparrently, the staff are being told its due to "liability" issues.

Ive kinda got mixed feelings about this... but it is going to be great for the gunshops out there, who can't compete with walmart since they can't buy at the same wholesale prices.

Not all of them. Last year they reduced their gun stores by about 1/3 and I think this year they are doing the same. I'll find out for sure in the morning.

They are going strong on guns here. According to the sporting goods guy no changes to the gun sales are slated for our store. They are increasing the ammo selections slightly due to increased sales.

interesting.... I went to 4 different stores in the last 2 days. Guns were gone at all, but i could only find employees to interrogate at 2, and both had the same response.
