WalMart Suspends Ammo Orders
Pending Gun Control Decision

Cybercast News Service, by Staff

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/14/2013 10:48:28 AM

WalMart reportedly has stopped selling ammunition ahead of the Obama administration’s anticipated gun control recommendations to Congress -- and uncertainty over what new laws may be coming. According to the Investment Watch blog, WalMart Corporation will no longer place new ammunition orders pending “the upcoming decision on the Second Amendment.” A customer stood with a WalMart employee as a call was made to the corporate office. WalMart headquarters told the employee the following: “As of right now WalMart is not going to be making any new orders of ammo because of

What can you say? Government by liberal intimidation seems to pretty well sum it up...

Guess the Obama admin was planning ahead buying - over the last few years - a few billion rounds of hollow point ammo illegal in international warfare use - prior to moving to make ammo unavailable to the public...

I was afraid of this. Just when it looked like the executive order wasn´t going to work as planned, who needs one when you can threaten and get results like this? Has it really come this far?

The gun are useless without ammunition, of course. It´s much easier to control the availability of ammo than to locate and round up the guns.

Walmart is making a good decision for a retailer- don´t get stuck with inventory if the sale of certain kinds of ammunition may be curtailed or restricted. They are continuing to sell what they have in stock, but are not ordering anymore until they see what may happen with legislation. Walmart isn´t scared, they are just good retailers.

I just called the number given and was told they did not have any information from Corporate on this. Referred me to WalMart website for updates. I checked the Corporate link at the website and didn´t see anything. She did want to know where I read about it and I told her. She also asked for my phone number, I didn´t give it to her but surely they have caller ID.

Bing search of "WalMart ammunition sales" brings up nothing... in fact, the first two hits were from the WalMart site, and it shows all the usual (including a Colt 6920), but indicates "In Stores Only", which is normal, as they don´t provide onlines sales of guns nor ammo.

There was a link to a message board about WalMart phasing out ammo sales, but that was dated 2009.

I have to wonder if this is bogus.

You have to actually read the article. Sales of ammunition has NOT changed so why would Walmart have any kind of notice on their website? They simply are not ordering any more of certain kinds of ammo and get stuck with it in inventory if laws are changed in the near future and it would be illegal to sell. Ever run a retail business?

Simple response to this: Don´t shop at Wal Mart. They´ll get the message.

Don´t forget that idiot Sam Walton Jr. was a big contributer to Obama and the democrats.

Wal Mart is going to find out the hard way that once you start giving into the communists there will be no end of it until they are out of business. Fools and traitors.

I´m not shocked at all. Wal-Mart stopped selling handguns long ago in response to another gun-control surge. I bought a rifle there once--a single-shot bolt-action .22--and thought I was never going to get out of the store. I resolved then and there to take all my gun business eleswhere.

Walmart is making what probably will be a short term decision until they know more about what may be coming up. They have been remarkably successful, so I wouldn´t be quick to second guess. A profitable business is not run on emotion, it´s run on what is best to make a profit. So right now they are being conservative with their inventory dollars till more is known about any possible legislation. They´re not going to buy a lot of what they might not be able to sell because when they buy they buy in huge volume.

I bought a youth model rifle for my daughter in 2000, when she was 11 years old, at Walmart.
They did the background check, I paid for the rifle, and they escorted me out the front door as if I were a shoplifter. I was not allowed to hold the package until I was outside.
Thanks, Walmart.

I called their customer service line; was told that they are considering a policy to no longer sell ammo at "some stores".
Any bets where those "some stores" are located?

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
