2020 Dems React To Walmart Ending Ammo and Handgun Sales: “Not Nearly Enough.” Of Course.

Well, folks, looks like we’ve got one more reason to shop local when it comes to guns and ammo.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon announced the company’s decision to end sales of certain ammunition as well as all handguns (which were previously only available in Alaska) in a memo, saying, “We believe the opportunity for someone to misinterpret a situation, even in open carry states, could lead to tragic results.”

“We hope that everyone will understand the circumstances that led to this new policy and will respect the concerns of their fellow shoppers and our associates,” he continued.

MCMILLON SAID THAT AFTER TALKING TO PEOPLE “INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF [WALMART]” THE COMPANY HAS ALSO DECIDED TO SEND “LETTERS TO THE WHITE HOUSE” TO ASK FOR “COMMON SENSE MEASURES” ON FIREARMS. HE SAID, “CONGRESS AND THE ADMINISTRATION SHOULD ACT.”

WALMART IS ALSO DISCONTINUING THE SALE OF AMMUNITION FOR AR-15 AND AK-47 STYLE RIFLES AND WILL CEASE ALL HANDGUN SALES IN THE STATE OF ALASKA.

After the news hit, so many 2020 Democratic presidential contenders reacted to Walmart’s decision to discontinue the sale of handguns and certain ammunition, I gave up counting halfway through. Thank goodness the candidate pool is thinning, but crikey!

If you’re masochistic and want to know what these sick puppies think about Walmart’s decision (and you should, because one of these rubes could end up being our president), look no further.

“This is a good start—but it’s not nearly enough,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote. “Walmart can and should do much more. And we need real gun reform, now”:

Warren is not the only Democrat calling for Walmart to act like a para-governmental agency and “do more” to address gun violence, of course.

“This is an important step by Walmart, but we must go further,” wrote Joe Biden, calling for an outright ban on assault weapons. “If we want to end our gun violence epidemic, we must start by passing universal background checks and banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. It’s your turn to act, Senate Republicans.”

Of course, our round-up wouldn’t be complete without input from Comrade Bernie Sanders:

Beto O’Rourke parroted the 2020 frontrunners, calling Walmart’s move a “step in the right direction” but adding that “We can’t rely on corporations to stop gun violence. We need universal background checks, we need red flag laws, and we need to buy back every single assault weapon.”

Oh Lord, have mercy. This is what awaits us if that “blue wave” rises up and takes the executive branch, y’all. Pray that doesn’t happen.
