The retreat of Walmart from the gun business enterprise continues apace. The Arkansas retail giant conspicuously announced that they’d quit promoting handgun and AR caliber ammunition in response to a stress campaign by anti-gun groups following the shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
It is not clear if Walmart is beneath the misapprehension that they can appease civilian disarmament groups with the move, or if dropping the ammunition sales was just the very first step in a gradual method to back out of firearm sales altogether, hoping their buyers will not notice.
What ever the company’s bigger method, they’ve now decided to finish sales of air pistols, as well.
Wally Planet has sold a wide variety of pump and CO2-powered air pistols in their shops and by way of their internet internet site for years. But that is about to finish.
One particular of Walmart’s distributors has sent the following e-mail to their buyers, a quantity of whom have pass it on to us.
Considering the fact that they specify pistols, you will apparently nonetheless be in a position to obtain a Red Ryder BB gun at Walmart. For now, anyway.
We’ve requested a comment from Walmart’s corporate headquarters on the transform, but haven’t however received a response. We’ll update this post if and when that takes place.
