Like many of you, I've followed the brouhaha over Wal Mart deciding not to sell certain guns and ammunition. I think that it is silly and short-sighted, and don't believe that it will help business, quite the contrary. However, that's their business and I have nothing to do with that. I shop at Wal Mart infrequently, simply because it is inconvenient to shop there.
There are several large chains where I shop regularly that doesn't sell guns or ammo. I spend a lot more money at the Dollar General down the road. They don't sell guns or ammo. My local auto pars house doesn't either. For that matter, I don't recall seeing ammo on the shelves at my favorite grocers.
None of my readers doubt that I am a fervent 2nd Amendment supporter. I believe in the whole Bill of Rights. I believe that I have certain rights, regardless of where I live, whether in rural Louisiana, a suburb of a large city, or (God forbid) in downtown Manhattan. But, I also believe that any business has the right to do business the way they see fit. There are still stores in town that sell ammo, and I know where they are. There are also online stores that sell ammo, and they are only a click away.
let Wal Mart do what Wal Mart will do.
