Walmart halts sales of handgun ammo, handguns, and open carry

Yes! Some measure of success....

After all the pressure, particularly after the El Paso mass shooting at their store on August 4 of this year, Walmart has finally agreed to stop selling ammo for handguns and short-barrel rifles, stopped selling handguns in all stores, including in Alaska, and no longer open carrying of guns in their stores.

Walmart represents about 2% of the market for guns today, the company said for the first time recently. Walmart believes it is not among the top three gun sellers in the industry, but it estimates it has about a 20% market share of ammunition sales.
On Tuesday, [CEO Doug] McMillon said that Walmart's changes to ammunition policies will reduce its market share from around 20% to between 6% and 9%. "We believe it will likely drift toward the lower end of that range, over time, given the combination of these changes," he said. ....
Surprisingly, he also called on legislative changes:
In addition, McMillon said that he would send letters to the White House and congressional leaders that "call for action" on "common sense" gun safety measures. McMillon said Congress should debate re-authorizing the assault weapons ban and expand background checks.
"We encourage our nation's leaders to move forward and strengthen background checks and to remove weapons from those who have been determined to pose an imminent danger," he said. "Congress and the administration should act. Given our decades of experience selling firearms, we are also offering to serve as a resource in the national debate on responsible gun sales."
However, they still sell hunting rifles and ammo and still allow carrying of concealed firearms by customers. Keep up the pressure!

Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
