    "Passing a law like the assault weapons ban is ... purely symbolic... Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation."
    Charles Krauthammer, more than 20 years ago

    Also, they're calling on Wal Mart to quit selling guns. Wal Mart only sells the stuff they always claim they aren't interested in taking, namely 10/22's, shotguns and bolt action deer rifles. They don't sell handguns or AR's. So why are they demanding Wal Mart stop even this?

    These people are such bald faced liars it makes me sick.

    So far Walmart execs aren't budging on the latest calls to ban sales of guns and ammo. Hope they stand by that.

    Worse than that, they're Orwell's sheep...

    ... and when the pigs had finished, almost as if on cue, the sheep began bleeting: "ba"aaa'aaan, ba'aaa'aaan, ba'aaa'aaan... and by the time they had calmed down, the pigs were gone and there was no chance to ask any questions.

    They probably thought about the repercussions DICKS had. Hell, think about how many people that shop at Wal Mart that could make quite a big group that could ban or boycott them. I doubt they would want to piss off half the blue collar gun owners in the USA

    Walmart doesn't care what people think. They care about profit and just got thru fighting activist share holders over this. On going buisness from Guns and hunters and the rural shoppers and pro freedom folks are a big part of ongoing long term profitability when compared to the pissed today forgot tomorrow outrage mob. They sell some stuff at a loss like a lot of their grocery products because of the traffic it brings in and other stuff those customers buy. They keep guns in stores where they are worth having them. Where they are not they stop selling them and also get to save on the cost of doing that buisness with extra training and employees.

    To show you that walmart wont screw around when it comes to things that effect the bottom line or their company policies, they have closed whole stores just because a couple employees tried to circulate union info. They just wont tolerate it.

    Walmart knows better than to piss us off. Dicks should be a reminder of what happens when you piss off your customer base.

    Always thought Krauthammer was a great name... Is that someone who smashes krauts, or a kraut that smashes others?
