I have to admit, I am one of those people that loves going to Walmart. With the pandemic going on, I like the idea that I can go to pretty much one place to get just about everything I need.
The problem with Walmart being such a place is that when these looting thugs get a hair up their backside, they make it the first place that they go to.
It’s getting so bad that they are already prepping for when Sleepy Joe doesn’t win next week.
The world’s largest retailer is pulling firearms and ammunition from sales floors across the United States, a move that is intended to keep the deadly weapons from falling into criminals’ hands.
Walmart advised store managers to begin making the shift Wednesday, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Customers interested in buying firearms or ammunition can still make purchases, but an authorized employee will have to retrieve the goods.
“We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers,” a company spokesman told The Journal.
Although Walmart stopped selling so-called assault rifles in 2015, the firearms that remain on store shelves are plenty deadly enough to do damage in the hands of a motivated criminal or an inexperienced looter.
The Arkansas-based company also banned open carry within its stores and stopped carrying certain kinds of ammunition after several of its locations were targeted by shooters.
It’s unclear how long Walmart’s latest decision will stand.
The move comes amid a surging demand for firearms and growing civil unrest in several places across America, a trend that is anticipated to increase as a hotly contested election approaches.
Most notably, a Walmart was ransacked Tuesday night in Philadelphia by looters running wild.
