    Yuma, AZ Walmart 3 June, 2020, Courtesy Dean Weingarten U.S.A. –-( A stop at the local Walmart on 3 June, 2020, revealed an empty gun display. No guns were inside the locked display. There were no cartridges available, other than shotgun bird shot. Walmart had been trending toward gradual elimination of guns from its inventory for years, ever since the death of the founder, Sam Walton, in 1992.Sam discouraged merchandise which was not made in the USA. Sam insisted each store carry firearms, including handguns. When Sam was not there to enforce those policies, the leftists who took over the...

    Police now tell us a 24-year-old man is dead after trying to blow up an ATM in the city. SkyFOX was over the scene at North Second Street and West Susquehanna Avenue on Tuesday morning. This happened around 6 a.m. outside Sidekicks Sports Bar. There, investigators were looking over the automated teller machine with a smashed screen, a mangled keyboard, dangling components but a seemingly intact safe at the bottom. FOX 29's Lauren Johnson reported that, according to police, the man was using explosives. He was seriously injured at the scene and was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Sources...

    The thought just came to me. More than likely a lot of gun websites are going to be shut down as this continues to prevent the sale of guns and ammunition to people where they are not recorded on camera like you see at retail establishments. When that happens, it will be EXTREMELY difficult to find guns or ammo one might want at a "reasonable" price (although it is all too high now).

PR Newswire reports online ammunition retailer has seen a 410 percent increased in .40 caliber handgun ammo sales since February 23, 2020.

  • How Much Ammo Is Enough For When Things Get Really Bad?

    In December 2019, the first cases of coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, were reported in the Wuhan province of mainland China. Despite the efforts of the Chinese government and other agencies, the disease spread around the world. Public health officials reported cases on every continent. Coronavirus has become a global pandemic, and it has already impacted on the global economy. This, in turn, can radically affect our lives here in the United States. Gun owners remember how guns and ammo were hard to find because of the political climate at the time. What will happen if it’s a pandemic that affects our...

    Monday’s Lobby Day protest in Richmond, Virginia, should mark a high point in the gun rights debate. It is, at least to my recollection, the single largest gun-rights rally ever. If there was a larger one–not counting the American Revolution–I’d be delighted to know about it. My point, though, is that 22,000 people showed up to let the governor of Virginia and legislature know that they weren’t interested in gun control. However, those same lawmakers have made it clear that they don’t care what those 22,000 people had to say. Which is fine, I suppose, because gun owners in the...

    NRA-ILA ^ | January 06, 2020 | Unattributed
    There is no such thing as a gun free zone. A person intent on criminal violence will not be deterred from bringing a gun to a location because of a “no guns” sign or an anti-gun statute. The only consequence of such measures is to ensure law-abiding citizens are disarmed and vulnerable. As demonstrated by Texas churchgoer Jack Wilson and the other armed congregants of West Freeway Church of Christ, allowing law-abiding citizens to carry for the defense of themselves and others can prevent harm. As counterproductive as gun free zones are, Virginia’s Michael Bloomberg-bought General Assembly wants to go...
  • California’s new ammo law hurts the wrong people — and doesn’t stop ‘bad guys’ with guns

    When California started requiring people to pass background checks to buy ammunition on July 1, hunters hoped for the best and braced for the worst. What happened was far worse than we feared.The premise of the new law is that people who can’t have guns shouldn’t have ammo either. I don’t know anyone who disputes that. Bad guys shouldn’t have guns or ammo.~~SNIP~~Here’s where it fell apart: The state Department of Justice finalized regulations to implement the law just before it took effect. There was no time, and no effort, to raise awareness, no time for gun owners to verify...

    President Trump said Thursday that if House Democrats are going to impeachment him they should do it "now" and "fast" so he can have a "fair" trial in the Republican-controlled Senate. In a series of tweets, Trump also said he wanted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), and the Bidens to testify at a Senate trial. "The Do Nothing Democrats had a historically bad day yesterday in the House. They have no Impeachment case and are demeaning our Country. But nothing matters to them, they have gone crazy," Trump tweeted. "Therefore I say, if...

    A Wisconsin man was founding living in an undetected underground bunk in the Milwaukee woods for years with a dog and a stockpile of weapons and ammunition. Deputies discovered hermit Geoffrey Goff's odd, hidden abode on Wednesday after responding to a call of shots fired. After entering the 8-foot-by-8-foot bunker - which was also 20-feet-long - the deputies found an arsenal of weapons including two shotguns, a rifle, a handgun, three knives, ammo and a bow with arrows fashioned from “snowplow stakes,” Milwaukee County Sheriff Earnell Lucas said at a news conference Friday.

Top 5 - Most Gun-Friendly States: Arizona, Idaho, Alaska, Kansas, OklahomaBottom 5 - Least Gun-Friendly States: New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii, California Things were looking uncertain for gun owners in many states in 2018 thanks to a successful push in otherwise pro-­gun states to enact gun control legislation. Things seem to have stabilized in 2019. We are, at least for now, back to normal with states on the extreme ends of the spectrum growing...

    Following the fourth Democratic debate in Westerville, Ohio, BlazeTV's Eric Bolling questioned candidates Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) about their support for a gun confiscation policy, and asked billionaire presidential candidate Tom Steyer why he thinks the economy isn't thriving under President Donald Trump. "Congressman, can you please clarify how you will get the ARs and AKs back," Bolling asked O'Rourke. "I expect our fellow Americans to follow the law. If you own and AR-15, if you own an AK-47, and it is no longer legal to own that, I expect you to turn it in," O'Rourke said....

    By now, we all know that Walmart has decided to stop selling certain types of ammunition because some people think it’s more scary than other kinds, which they will continue to sell… and many folks hail this as a victory of sorts for “Main Street America,” i.e. the small independent gun shops that will benefit from increased business as shooters buy ammo from them instead of Walmart. Meanwhile, a shooting range in Texas has started to sell ammo by the pound and trolled Walmart about it. Alpine Shooting Range decided to sell ammo from dispensers and charge by the pound....

These idiots think just because Walmart is not selling ammo that law abiding citizens and criminals will not get ammo elsewhere? I so so sick of this subject its unreal.

It is shameful to see Walmart to succumb to the pressure of the anti-gun elites," the influential gun rights group wrote in a statement. "Lines at Walmart will soon be replaced by lines at other retailers who are more supportive of America's fundamental freedoms," the statement said.
