    Huh? A breacher on a shotgun and .223 ammo?


    Please vote! It's that important!

    But I bet they sell much more high powered hunting calibers with no issue, as long as it isn't that evil .223...

    Don't let them find out about the 7.62x39 sold in stores, then they will know the commies have arrived. :supergrin:

    Of course nothing in the cities "written agreement" with that Walmart store is going to stop people from driving to the next city/county and buying those scary tactical weapons and evil .223 ammunition...

    lets just all start painting our black rifles and shotguns bright and vibrant colors. Then they wont look as evil and "tactical".

    And here all along I thought the military used 5.56x45 ammo.

    What a bunch of idiocy. (And yeah, I know, it's nothing new from those who fear firearms irrationally.)

    I wish the Walmarts in my area sold half of the things they mentioned in that article. We only have knives and a piss poor selection of ammunition.

    That said, if Walmart did get their foot in the door by agreeing to some unfair and restrictive limitations on what they can sell, they should have to honor that agreement.

    Ignoring that this is about guns, I know multiple Walmarts built in nicer areas here that were bullied into agreements that limited the parking lot lights (so neighbors wouldn't be blasted with high intensity light all night). If Walmart can ignore agreements on what they sell, they can ignore agreements on parking lot lights, and that is not right.

    High powered ammunition? I guess it's a good thing 30-30 or 30-06 is such a low powered ammo. Sarcasm off.

    I thought Indiana was such a pro gun state?

    Re: OP. So what. WM made an agreement. The city has every right to hold them to it. The city sets the rules through elected representatives. If WM doesn't like it, let them go elsewhere. No business small or large gets to name the tune and expect that the city/country dance to it. The voters elect their representatives and decisions are made about the tune. WM like other businesses then get to dance the jig that is called. That's the way it is. That's the way it should be.

    Really depends on how they define tactical. If it isn't spelled out, it's really not enforceable.

    After reading the comments of the councilman, I don't have much faith in the people of IN.

    South Bend is awfully close to Chicago, I wonder if some of the garbage overflowed into South Bend?

    What purpose does it serve for you to suck the life out of a perfectly good rant with rational thought processes? :tongueout:

    Must suck to live in South Bend, IN. I'm guessing it's full of either rich liberals or college faculty.

    The Common Council. Sounds like something out of the old Soviet Union.

    Yeah, that set off my socialist radar, too. Anything "common" or "people's" is bound to get ugly, soon.

    Sure sounds like it... This is what Wal Mart gets for making a deal w/ the council. They should have just complied with state laws like they are required, and told the city of South Bend to get bent.
