Weekend of action planned to pressure Walmart to stop selling guns

Purchase something in your local Walmart’s sporting goods department this weekend.

A coalition of unions and organizations are staging rallies nationwide
Weekend of action planned to pressure Walmart to stop selling guns.
Why Walmart is under attack by the anti-gun Left . . . .

The retailer (Walmart) also released for the first time some of the data for its own gun sales: Walmart estimates it has a 2% share of the U.S. firearms market and 20% of ammunition sales.

Counter the Left’s protest against Walmart by making a purchase in the sporting goods department of your local Walmart this weekend.

If you shoot, hunt or go to the range, there is always something you can use.

Florida – Hardening The Soft Target, Not So Much

Repeatedly, it is demonstrated that it is the on scene, immediate responder that either mitigates the assault or totally thwarts the attack.

On May 5th, an article was posted here regarding the 2019 Florida Legislature’s failure to allow private schools and places of worship, that have a licensed school campus on their property, to arm themselves or hire private armed security to protect their lives and the lives of those who attend school or other activities on their property.

On May 7th an article was published on TownHall.com, by John R. Lott, Jr., titled: Armed Guards at Houses of Worship Is Not Enough addressing the very subject of hardening the soft targets (places of worship and schools) against an armed assailant.

Against all rational thinking the 2019 Florida Legislature failed the citizens of Florida. While broadening the protection of public school students, allowing teachers to be trained and armed, the Florida Legislature left both those students who attend private schools and young people and adults alike, who attend school or worship services on property owned by faith based organizations and shared with a school campus, to the wolves.

Under current Florida law, private school campuses remain gun free zones. That means gun free zones at ALL times, even when classes are NOT in session, i.e., Saturdays, Sundays, summer break.

Against all rational thinking the 2019 Florida Legislature failed the citizens of Florida. While broadening the protection of public school students, allowing teachers to be trained and armed, the Florida Legislature left both those students who attend private schools and young people and adults alike, who attend school or worship services on property owned by faith based organizations and shared with a school campus, to the wolves.

Yesterday, Tuesday, May 7th another school shooting occurred. This time in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. 8 students were shot, with one being killed. It was not a school guardian or a law enforcement school resource officer that stopped the attack. Rather, it was a fellow, unarmed student, on scene who tackled one of the assailants curtailing the assault.

It has been repeatedly demonstrated that it is the on scene, immediate responder that either mitigates the assault or totally thwarts the attack. Law enforcement only arrives after the shots have been fired and wounded and lifeless bodies are strewn on the ground.

The Florida Legislature needs to be made to know that the lives of those who attend private schools and places of worship are just as valuable as those who work in and attend public schools.

Gun Ban & Confiscation

“… if you are arrested for using an assault weapon, you’re going to have an aggravated felony,”

The cat is out of the bag. What the Left really wants . . .
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand’s interview with CNN host Poppy Harlow, August 14, 2019
2020 Dems embrace federal gun buyback program

Sen. Kristen Gillibrand’s interview with CNN host Poppy Harlow, August 14, 2019

“I think we should ban assault weapons as well as large magazines. As part of passing that ban, do a buyback program across the country so that those who own them can be compensated for the money they spent,” Gillibrand said. “You don’t want people to retain [these firearms]. Because, if you make them illegal, you don’t want to grandfather in all the assault weapons that are all across America. You would like people to sell them back to the government.”

And then came the question of truth: what happens if people don’t freely give up their firearms? Poppy Harlow asked just that, positting if Gillibrand would support prosecute those who refuse to relinquish their firearms.

“So the point is, if you are arrested for using an assault weapon, you’re going to have an aggravated felony,” the embattled Democratic candidate said. “The whole point is when you make it a crime to own an assault weapon, then if you are found using it, that would be the issue. So it would just be part of your law enforcement in terms of what you have access to.”

It is not about Walmart – It is about your gun rights

The 2nd Amendment and our gun owner rights are under assault by the anti-gun Left’s attack on Walmart.

The Walmart executives most know that the sportsmen of America support their selling of firearms and ammunition. We must NOT allow the anti-gun Left to dictate Walmart merchandise sales policy!

Walmart is an all American business that embraces capitalism. Walmart executives base their business decisions on sales and profit.

Support Walmart and the 2nd Amendment by making a sporting goods purchase at your local Walmart this weekend. You can always use something, a hat, socks, ammunition, targets, cleaning supplies, tree stand, a gift for your nephew, niece, brother, wife or husband. You can think of something the sportsman or woman in your life can use. Christmas is only 4 months away.

Gun Protest Outside Parkland Walmart Draws Attention

By GINA PFINGSTEN – August 10, 2019

PARKLAND, FL- The chant of “people over profit” rang through the air of Parkland on Saturday morning. A passionate protest outside the Walmart on Coral Ridge Drive drew a crowd of supporters from the local community. The nonprofit Guns Down America organized a rally called “Walmart Must Act” aimed at creating change in Walmart’s policies.

Igor Volsky, Founder and Director of

Guns Down America, was on hand to lead the rally and speak with local supporters.

They showed up in throngs of 10s . . .

“We organized this rally to push Walmart to act on guns, including two specific things. One is to stop selling guns until we raise the standard for gun ownership, and the second is to stop giving contributions to NRA-backed lawmakers. Walmart is the largest seller of firearms in America. That means they have real leverage with the gun industry,” stated Volsky.

The peaceful but spirited crowd was upbeat in their cheering, as local traffic and drivers waved and honked to show support of the event. Over a hundred people were on hand, including family members of victims from the Stoneman Douglas tragedy.

“People are dying. Things need to change. If Walmart makes an announcement of change, that’s going to send a strong signal to the gun industry. And the same thing with the political donations. Why is it that the top recipients of NRA dollars also get money from Walmart. If Walmart wants to break the congressional log jam, they should announce they’re going to stop their giving. That’s really going to shake things up,” Volsky shared. “This is an opportunity for Walmart to lead and we’re asking them to do it.”
