    it was bound to happen at wallyworld and will happen elsewhere.......it might be influenced because of mass murder.....or it might be influenced because of particular open carry idiots like the one at the Missourri walmart that decided to ninja-up and go shopping with a rifle and pistol and tactical vest in wallmart a few days after el paso to test the political waters on walmart's policy because he did not like their ammo policy.....or so he claims....

    i view such as nothing more than extremism by the far-right fringes of the 2A......in a time when show-boating can have a very negative influence.

    rambo vs fudd in the gun owning community........and instead of being one we will fracture....middle ground will disappear within the gun community as sides are chosen with the "your are with us or against us" argument......

    the choices will be "in your face" vs common sense........carrying an AR into wallmart to shop is in your face....

    now let the cries of Fudd commence!!!!!!!

    i would guess it is the "because i can" and "its my right" political argument of what is considered pro-activism....and will soon enough be viewed instead as pro-extremism as in the missourri incident.....

    I have 2 Walmarts within a 12 minute drive. They have never had ammo I wanted besides BBs. I do buy gun cleaning stuff, CO2 canisters (for air guns), hearing aid batteries, and a few odds and ends. Most of the ammo I can't find at a gun shop (.38 special full wadcutter) I get on-line. It appears that gun retailers only sell ammo for home defense and hunting. Not much for bullseye target shooters.

    There is no longer a good reason to shop at Wally Mart. Hopefully other gun owners will feel the same way.

    Just got back from wallyworld. I talked to the sporting goods manager. 22's and 22 mag are safe. There was a guy there hoarding the 556 ammo.

    I used to live in Corpus many years ago, and I remember there being a big sign on bob Hall pier that basically said no firearms concealed or open. I would just ignore it, as I always carried a little NAA 22mag in my back pocket while out night fishing for sharks, and it wasn't for the sharks if you know what I mean.

    I also remember a buddy of mine telling me that if I ever had to brandish or actually use the thing that I was going to be in trouble because of the sign, and that it wasn't like where I was from in Washington where those signs simply got you in trouble with the business. Since I didn't like the idea of night fishing in an area known for all kinds of riff-raff without a piece on me, I simply decided to just fish off of my tail gait on the beach and set my line with a kayak.

    I don't get the whole drinking bear thing, the stuff looks like urine, and when I tried it tasted what I thought urine would taste like. But I don't don't give beer drinkers any grief, just if they have bad breath, and most do stay ten feet away from me.

    I've already been seeing a sharp divide between the more extreme gun enthusiasts and people like myself that tend to be more on the Fudd side. I've watched these debates break out on my power tool forum, facebook, and even while shopping at Cabellas.

    The argument that I'm seeing is the extremes claiming that the fudds aren't taking a hard enough stance for their gun rights, and the Fudds claiming that the extremes are actually one of the biggest threats to their gun rights with their stupid irresponsible behavior.

    I think it's more about getting attention than anything. It's like flying a full size American flag off of a jacked up truck. This type of stuff is basically the conservative's version of having purple hair or having one of those car stereos with so much bass that it rattle's the trunk.

    "Hey, look at me! I got a gun on me, and if you don't like my politics, you can piss off."
    It's really no different than "hey, look at me. I'm super gay! I think that I'll wear a gay pride shirt with a big rainbow flag on it so everybody knows it, and if you don't like my politics, you can piss off."
