WalMart “partners” with Everytown for Gun Safety and Michael Bloomberg to advance gun ban agenda

Tennessee Firearms Association wants to make sure all gun owners and all 600,000+ handgun permit holders in Tennessee are aware of Walmart’s increasing anti-gun stance on your capacity to exercise the right to keep and bear arms which is protected by the United States Constitution.

Even worse – if that is possible – all gun owners should know that WalMart has openly stated that it is now in “partnership” on gun control issues with Everytown for Gun Safety which appears to be one of Michael Bloomberg’s “shell” gun control entities that pushes for sweeping gun bans and Red Flag laws!

At one time, Walmart was seen as a truly “American” store that had no hesitation in supporting your Second Amendment rights. That seems to have eroded as Walmart increasingly adopts policies designed specifically to make it harder for Americans to purchase firearms, to purchase ammunition, to purchase firearms accessories, and even to carry in its stores.

Walmart now proudly proclaims on its own website that it is a “charter member” of the “Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership” which was co-formed by WalMart, “Everytown for Gun Safety” and Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” See, https://corporate.walmart.com/policies

WalMart knows or should know that “Everytown for Gun Safety is an American nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence. Everytown was founded in 2006, combining Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. Everytown for Gun Safety is largely financed by Michael Bloomberg, who also founded the group.” See, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Everytown_for_Gun_Safety Evertown for Gun Safety is supporting gun control, gun bans, and Red Flag laws across the nation.

So, what is WalMart telling Americans? It is saying it is now in partnership with the gun control fanatic – Michael Bloomberg – and the various corporate shells that he apparently creates to hide his participation in the gun control and gun abatement movement from the public.

WalMart announced on September 3, 2019, an expansion of its anti-gun policies that it has apparently partnered with Michael Bloomberg’s corporate shells to fashion and continuously evolve in an effort to make it harder for Americans to own firearms and acquire ammunition.

WalMart policies largely ban many sporting rifles from being sold in its stores including the immensely popular AR15 and AK47 sporting semi-automatics. WalMart is discontinuing the sale of handguns entirely. It is discontinuing the sale of “high capacity” magazines and certain firearms accessories. It is prohibiting its online retailers from offering these items. It has raised the age to purchase firearms and ammunition in its stores to age 21. It does not sale on a “conditional proceed” background check even though state and federal law allows it. It has already done several of these things.

As of September 3, 2019, it has also announced the following policies which sound not surprisingly to be right out of Everytown and Michael Bloomberg’s likely playbook of ‘how to destroy a constitutional right.’ These policy additions now include:
  • WalMart will no longer sell handgun ammunition at all
  • WalMart will no longer sell ammunition for “short-barrel” rifles including ammunition in calibers.223 and 5.56.
  • WalMart will no longer sell ammunition such as .300 Blackout, 7.62×39 and .224 Valkyrie.
  • WalMart no longer wants citizens who can legally carry in the respective states to carry in their stores if they carry openly.
Tennessee Firearms Association urges gun owners in Tennessee and elsewhere to seriously consider whether your retail dollars should be spent to the profit of WalMart’s increasing gun control agenda and its partnership with individuals and organizations that promote gun control, gun bans, and Red Flag laws. Citizens can and should avoid shopping at retail merchants who openly adopt policies that are knowingly implemented to impair the full and free exercise of rights – real rights – that are actually contained in and protected by the state and federal constitutions.
