    Hmmm, anyone buy a rifle / shotgun from Walmart?

    "
    One of the 13 photographs submitted included Mitch's 12 gauge Ruger Red Label Shotgun. He said it was the first gun that he had purchased himself, calling it his "go-to" gun for outdoor sport.

    When Wehner arrived at the Walmart at Central Expressway and Midpark Road to pick up the prints, she was told the photo with the firearm would not be released.

    "She was very nice, but very matter-of-fact, like she was not going to budge or give me my photo," Wehner said.

    She even recieved a slip from the clerk that read: "MINUS ONE 5 X 7. NO WEAPONS.""

    They have a bubblegumty photo department. Even if they "THINK" a photo may be trademarked they won't print it.

    Screw them anyway, Bimart beats almost all of their prices.:s0007:

    Even at first glance, that story stunk of some employee's erroneous interpretation of policy - or misguided personal bias. How could any big retailer even seem to contradict the home defense strategy outlined by our very own vice president?

    Walmart has AR15s for sale, photos of guns on their website, but private photos with guns is 4 legs good, two legs baaaaddd.

    Is it any wonder we have 'people of walmat' websites?

    Don't know why they didn't just ask for a manager at the time it happened. Bet it would have been taken care of right then and there.

    Stick that "employee" on latrine duty.
    Perhaps all the S shes cleaning will make her realize how full of BS she is.

    Id say fire her.. But who wants to pay for more unemployment and various social programs via taxes..?!

    No, dumba$$ drones swallowing the "party line" and then goose stepping to the "approved" beat of the "statist" drums.

    It's a programmed mindset that gets built starting with "good intentions", then balloons out from there.
