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 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.
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.
"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."
