    Wal-Mart to log guns sold & used in crimes

    EDIT: Oops, duplicate thread of one in Legal.

    Wow. Announcing it at Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns gathering, no less. Anyone up for some cheap Wal-Mart goods now?

    So does this mean if I have a gun stolen and then used in a crime, Wal-Mart will not let me buy another one?
    Also at the end. The part about the no-fly list. And exactly how many people have been placed on this list as their name is similar to a name in some database? Unbelievable...

    The only thing Walmart is good for is the cheap bricks of .223. Never even thought to buy a gun there.

    Plus you have to wait 20 minutes for the pissed off sales guy to come over and shoot you a dirty look while opening the ammo window.

    No loss if you ask me..

    Good question, I would start by not buying one there at all.

    At the Wal-Mart here it takes forever to get a gun anyway. I don't know many people who want to waste an hour of their day trying to get a gun. The marginally cheaper prices are definitely not worth the extra time. I can be in and out at the local gun shops in less than 10 minutes, and that's at the most.

    Just one more reason not to buy guns at Wal-Mart...

    i never have, and now never will buy a gun from wal-mart. when anti-gun people rule large companies, they are the ones that loose, not us. if they want to throw their profits away, no skin off my nose. about the only thing i have bought there anyway (as far as gun items) is cleaning supplies, and a scope or two for small rifles. i will gladly pay the additional money to a REAL sporting goods store for what i buy there. i don't know what they are thinking. first, how many criminals are going to go in there to buy a rifle or shotgun to commit a crime with. second, if they actually stop selling guns, do they think this is going to change the world? do they think that a criminal is not just going to go buy a gun elsewhere? idiots! all this is about, is some touchy feely anti-gun person wanting to make certain that there is no way that there ever could be any way "his company" had anything to do with bloodshed. whahh. i wonder if he still sucks his thumb at night. right after he snuggles up with his teddy bear, and drinks his warm milk.

    I say we "Zumbo" them to make them re-consider.

    (Not that I've ever bought a gun there nor intend to, it's the principle of the thing...)

    Do I hear a second?

    I never bought a gun at Walmart, but up until today I bought my clay pigeons and shot shells there.

    If I understand it correctly the agreement is invalid from the get go. I believe Wal-Mart would legally be denied access to that information so to get it they would have to do something illegal. No agreement or contract can force a person or company to violate law and therefore the agreement or contract is null and void. At least I hope I'm correct.

    Wally World in my area has had some pretty good deals on bulk laundry soap, etc., but oh, well... They do not exist any longer as far as I'm concerned.
    This may very well be the reason for Wal-Mart turning into such ...er ...ah ...well, never mind. All they want is to build stores and if that means getting in bed with the scum, so be it. I will NEVER enter another one of their stores ...FOR ANY REASON!.

    Like I didn't have enough reasons to boycott Wal-Mart already.

    Wal-mart sucks for guns anyway. Let's review (this is in the gunshine state, sunny florida):
    -they don't sell handguns
    -the gun counter is often not staffed
    -they only sell sporting long guns. The closest they have to a real gun is the occasional mini-14.
    -their guns aren't cheap! I have a local FFL that will transfer any internet bought gun to me for 20 dollars
    -their ammo selection is crappy unless you are shopping for shotgun shells for small game
    -the winchester white box they sell is the most underloaded crud I have ever shot. It had less velocity and looser groups than wolf, which is no longer the worst performer of the bargain brands.

    4, 5, 6, 7, 8, should all be done all the time anyways. 10 is reasonable for a storefront business,

    1, 2, 3, and 9 are out of line,

    1. That list of video tapes becomes a registration and a criminal shopping list if they want guns

    2. the store is not a law enforcement agency, if they have a problem call the cops or ATF. If my gun is stolen, never used in a crime, then recovered it will be traced to see who it belongs to. That should not flag me and cause undo difficulty

    3. we already do that on the 4473, this is just wasting trees.

    9. Unacceptable, often when there is an issue and a delay, if it is approaching the limit of time, the feds don't bother sending through a last minute approval, they just let it expire to default to accept. Also, just because your name is johnson or smith doesn't mean you should be denied your access to firearms.

    p.s. now that the mexican government can access the 4473, no way am I putting my SS on it, that info is simply going to be routed to someone making fake green cards

    I think its time for some good photo shopped imagine of Wal-Mart and Bloomberg in bed together, bumper stickers. I'd definiatly be sporting one on both vehicles.

    Everyone who has never bought a gun from Wal-Mart and never intended to buy one from them should most definitely join together and never buy a gun from Wal-Mart. By joining together Wal-Mart's non-customers can show Wal-Mart what it has lost by joining together with Mayor Bloomberg instead of supporting the people who do not buy from it.

    When they are joined by gun owners who also do not belong to the NRA and never intended to belong to the NRA, Wal-Mart and Mayor Bloomberg will recognize at last the might and determination of gun owners who will send them a thundering message that rolls through the very hills and deafens them with its mighty roar.

    Let those gun owners make on with those gun owners who also send both major political parties an unmistakable message by not voting at all in the upcoming election, or by refusing to vote until there is a perfect candidate for everyone, or by voting for a candidate that has no chance of winning but we have principles. Then shall those who oppose gun ownership crumble in the dust and gun owners shall triumph.

    Corporate greed wins out.

    Watch for the news: "Mayor Bloomberg announces that Walmart gets approval for their store in NYC they were earlier denied.

    I shop at Wal*Mart about once every five years or so. I did buy a Mossberg 500 there about 11 years ago. I wouldn't do that again.
