Just received this response from Wal-Mart regarding an e-mail I sent them regarding their position on semiautomatic AR platform rifles, magazine size, ammunition and firearms in general. I understand many of us are so low on ammo that we need to get it where we can find it. I understand I was fortunate to be paranoid enough to have been stocking up for a long time now. With this response I guess I would hope that people would shy away from a retailer who feels their guidance is best addressed by people such as Bloomberg and his amigos and I understand they may have every right to do what they are doing, but I will never support them with my business even if it costs me more elsewhere. I wrote them a response explaining that. Dear XXXX, Thank you for your recent inquiry. Walmart, like the rest of the country, has been engaged in a national dialogue about the responsible sale and regulation of firearms. We have had ongoing conversations with the Administration, Congress, Mayor Bloombergs office, sportsmen groups, suppliers and others to listen and share our thoughts and experiences. Over the years we have been very purposeful about striking the right balance between serving hunters and sportsmen and ensuring that we sell firearms responsibly. In fact, we became a charter member of Mayor Bloombergs coalition against illegal guns and adopted the 10-point code established by the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership that goes beyond what the law requires. We have also spoken to the Vice Presidents office to share our perspective. We take this issue very seriously and are committed staying engaged in this discussion as the Administration and Congress work toward a consensus on the right path forward. Sincerely, Walmart Customer Care My Response back (for all the good it may do) Regardless of your interpretation of the right "path" it is still legal in this Country to buy and possess semiautomatic firearms built on an AR platform (do you even know what that means?). It's also legal to possess semiautomatic pistols and to possess ammunition for both firearm types. What you have done is make a unilateral decision that the President has correctly diagnosed the situation. You haven't waited for Congress. You haven't reviewed the Supreme Court decisions. Most importantly you haven't listened to your customers. Let's be honest, there are many people who buy ammunition from you do to your low price. Admit it, the reason you started to expand the distribution of firearms and ammunition is because you realized you were loosing a large share of the business. It disturbs me that many of my peers seem to lack the ethics to boycott you know. I understand many are low on ammunition and you over a low cost alternative. I have faith that once they realize you have betrayed the Constitution and your customers' rights your shelves may not clear of ammunition quite so quickly. Regardless of the Congressional decision, I will not shop a Wal-Mart again.
