NRA SAYS "SHAMEFUL" WALMART GIVING IN TO "ANTI-GUN ELITES" AFTER RETAILER ENDS MOST AMMUNITION SALES

The National Rifle Association is admonishing Walmart's decision on Tuesday to discontinue sales of ammunition and discourage open-carry customers from entering its stores.

"It is shameful to see Walmart succumb to the pressure of the anti-gun elites," the gun-rights group said in a press release. "Lines at Walmart will soon be replaced by lines at other retailers who are more supportive of America's fundamental freedoms."

Walmart announced just hours earlier that it would stop selling handgun ammunition, bullets for short-barrel rifles and handguns altogether in the State of Alaska, the last place where the retailer was engaged in handgun sales.

"It's clear to us that the status quo is unacceptable," Walmart President and CEO Dough McMillon said in a statement. "We hope that everyone will understand the circumstances that led to this new policy and will respect the concerns of their fellow shoppers and our associates."

NSSF Responds to Walmart’s Announcement

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has always respected the right of companies in our industry to make business decisions that they feel are in the best interest of their business and customers. While we are disappointed by Walmart’s announcement today that it has decided to stop selling certain types of ammunitions used in a wide variety of firearms, along with discontinuing the sale of handguns in their Alaska stores, NSSF appreciates Walmart’s continuing commitment to America’s hunters and recreational target shooters and their equipment needs, as sportsmen and women represent tens of millions of responsible gun owners in this country."

Is it a smart business decision?

Probably not.

Yes.
