    Our Walmart pulled its firearms off display in Woodstock, GA, a conservative suburb of Atlanta.

    They are probably thinking a bunch of nut jobs are going to invade for free stuff over the next few weeks.

    Yes, there have been instances where stores have closed out their gun selection, but I assume most of these stores mentioned will put them back after the election.

    Prepping for riots no doubt. That's a sad sign of the times that a free election would lead to rioting by the supporters of the one who lost.

    I was in a Florida Walmart a few days ago where all the guns had clearance tags on them.

    Conservative rural small town in a red state, Yep friend texted me two hours ago, our local Wally World pulled ALL guns and ammo.

    Would love to read the internal memo on this....

    ... if they still have guns in stock in this climate apparently no one else thinks about them for guns either...

    Considering how big of a target they are for looting, exibit A: Philly, it makes some sense to pull guns and ammo until the left gets less insane (if that ever happens).

    So that means the one near me pulled the three they had. Stop the presses. If you needed 22lr or shotgun shells that was your place. That was it. Walmart is not worth my time.

    I got my very first pistol of my own at Walmart from grass mowing money when I was 14 (mom made actual purchase) My last purchase was a Colt 6920 for $889 several years back. Used to be a thing before Sam died and the rich liberal spawn took over.

    It has occurred to me, if I were in a mob looting a WalMart, sporting goods would be my first destination. I would never do such a thing of course. Those images of the stores in Philly are terrible... cleaned out wall to wall.

    The local WalMart here is still selling rifles, shotguns, along with rifle ammo and shot shells.

    I would assume they are prepping for the upcoming riots.
