I still can’t believe this thread.
Normally I post something and kill a thread.
I almost feel dirty, that this is my legacy.
I have a gift card to Walmart, guess I will have to stop in one and see if anything good is happening.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

So, this perpetually rotting carcass lies at your feet, eh?
For penance, you need to eat a Walmart rotisserie chicken.

Last year, Dick's Sporting Goods ended the sale of semi-automatic, assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines after a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people. It also raised the age for purchasing weapons from 18 to 21.
Walmart (WMT), despite a history as a seller of hunting weapons that goes back to its origins, has also shifted its gun sales policies in response to high profile shootings. It stopped selling assault rifles in 2015 and raised its minimum gun purchasing age to 21 last year after the Parkland shooting.
The kind of gun used in Saturday's attack has not been sold at Walmart in years. But now that gun violence has hit Walmart's own stores as customers were back-to-school shopping with their kids, many are wondering whether the company will take additional steps to limit firearms sales.
Walmart does, however, already have what many gun violence prevention advocates consider strong gun safety policies that go beyond federal requirements: it doesn't sell assault weapons, it doesn't sell to people under 21, it requires background checks and it no longer sells toys that resemble assault rifles.
Even if it doesn't change its policies, many think Walmart is positioned to push lawmakers to enact tighter gun restrictions.
Walmart could also play a role in educating its customers on gun safety, said Texas Gun Sense President Ed Scruggs. Especially in rural communities, Walmart stores act as de-facto community centers that Scruggs said would make them sensible homes for education programs.
"To have Walmart join the coalition of companies working actively on this issue, making it a priority in their foundational platform would send a strong signal," [Shannon] Watts [founder of gun safety advocacy group Moms Demand Action] said. "Companies have a role to play. When lawmakers don't protect their constituents, companies have a responsibility to protect their customers."
For now, just about 36 hours after the attack, Walmart's policies remain the same, according to company spokesperson Randy Hargrove. Hargrove also pointed out that the company has provided quarterly active shooter trainings for all employees since 2015, and that all of the staff at the El Paso store that was targeted Saturday had been trained.
