Sorry if this was already posted, I searched "Walmart" and didn't see it.

Here's Walmart's corporate feedback page:

https://corporate.walmart.com/contact-us/store-corporate-feedback#2

Politely but firmly FReep the heck out them:

"You back more Obama-gun grabbing aka "gun control", we won't shop at your store anymore."

“Biden: Obama exploring executive orders to combat gun violence”

DANGER Will Robinson, Danger!

Defiance of an Executive Order is a clear possibility.

Never bought a weapon from Wal Mart and only reluctantly shop there (just because it’s close and convenient.)

But, they drop guns due to this liberal Obama-stuff and they’ll miss out on the great profits to be made when CW-II starts (probably sooner than we suspect.)

And they’ll also loose my business.

There’s nothing stopping Shnitler from taking the guns.
The constitution is only as good as the people willing to defend it. After the last election, it looks like people voted in favor of a dictator.

What do you want to bet that our Governor Perry would refuse to enforce an unconstitutional EO in Texas, should it come down to that?

It’s by no means certain, but I think there’s a strong possibility.

Texans would be furious at such an unconstitutional power grab, and we don’t have a history of willingly giving in to such. And we have LOTS and LOTS of guns, and gun dealers.

Walmart pulled all the guns from my local store 2 - 3 years ago justifying it as reflecting the changing local population. I told them I wouldn’t be back and they shrugged.

;Maybe we can help Walmart by complaining loudly,,so then they can say “look, we are going to lose business!” “our customers do NOT want any gun control”,,etc. It’s a thought.

0bama should be IMPEACHED for his pandering, bribery, extortion, and blackmailing tactics.. Using banks and unions against businesses, etc.. This cannot be lawful.

Can any FReepers here cite Constitutional Law which prohibits a president from unilaterally (or otherwise) engaging in these tactics? Help please?

Emails seem to me as about as threatening as the print out paper they’re printed on, IF, that is, they bother to press “ print “ at all.

How long are we going to grouse in the cozy comfort of our in-doors? We need bodies to deliver emails, personally, to local Wal Mart managers, as well as the home office.

Also, anyone know the best way to promote a boycott, to avoid “interfering with commerce”, or some other trumped up charge of choice?

So when all these unconstitutional gun laws are passed (as if the constitution still existed anyway being that a foreigner was twice elected POTUS) and another shooting happens (and it will) what are they going to do then? Pass laws banning the thought of guns?

You know we’ve pretty much put all our eggs in one basket..the NRA.

I think the AARP and the AMA proved that we cannot count on those we THOUGHT we could count on to protect our interests(i.e. AARP to protetc seniors and AMA to protect our health interets).

O threw them a bone or a bribe (or a threat) and they were suddenly on his side and sold us out.

Now he is openly going aftsr the NRA. Probably has truckloads of union goons poised to picket their homes and children’s schools, and the media would CHEER if this happened.

O’s thuggish behavior is fed by media adoration. I recall footage of him going up to Lieberman on Senate floor and grabbing him, almost like gangsters grab lapels and get in your face, and threatened him about some problem of the day, maybe backing Hillary. He has no sense of propriety, and, as I saw the media makes him worse.

Yep.

“illegitimate president”?

Yes, illegitimate in every manner, a real Lying Commie B_tard. And illegitimate by birth also. I am convinced that the reason for the controversy with his COLB is that BHO, Sr. is not his biological father. Who is? unsure. FMD? possibly

Railing on WalMart is meaningless.

When people start railing on their local and state governments to demand their Fed reps comply with the will of their constituency I’ll believe they really want something besides Gun Control/confiscation.

Do not leave out Bass Pro Shop or Dick Sporting Goods. These two big box stores are right in there with Odinga as well.

Others are going to be coming out of the woodwork like cockroaches as time goes on.

They will not drop guns.

They will assist to draft the EO where mom and pop gun shops, transfers between family members and gun shows are shut down.

I bought ammo today. Out of three types of ammunition, my usual supplier had just one in stock. All others were sold out and unavailable. 30-06.....Nope! 9MM........Nope! The only order they could fill was 20Ga 24 pellet Buckshot in a 2.75” shell. So I bought three cases.

No one that I have talked to or read on the Internet is trying to foment violence in any way. I personally am praying every evening at 8PM and I am praying for salvation for our Republic and peaceful solutions to our morass. It will not be the gun lobby or the Conservatives that start a war... but we will finish it if the worst happens.

Short of orders to arrest Uncle Sugar’s agents, not much he could do.
