. . . and Walmart listened!
Our efforts were not enough. Obviously the anti-gun Left spoke louder than we did.
Rather than rushing to Walmart to make that last minute ammunition purchase, you might want to consider buying your shooting supplies elsewhere. Walmart needs to feel the financial pain Dick’s Sporting Goods experienced a couple of years ago.
There are several other good resources to purchase economically priced ammunition. May I suggest Gander RV & Outdoors? After Walmart, Gander Outdoors has some of the best ammunition prices; other than online purchases, which is not a bad idea either.

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.”
