Walmart will still sell guns after El Paso mass shooting

Walmart Inc said on Monday there has been no change in its policy on gun sales after two mass shootings over the weekend, including one at a Walmart store, left 31 people dead in Texas and Ohio. Walmart is the largest US arms retailer and after a lot of public pressure to end assault rifle sales in 2015 and in 2018 it raised the minimum age for gun purchases to 21.

Telling non criminals to give up their guns because of a criminal shooting is like telling men to cut off their penises because they've been used in rapes.

Of course they should I mean if I am at risk at being shot at I would want a gun too. That way it is a fair fight.

It isn't the gun or the ammo. It's a mental health issue for one. I own some guns, ammo for every one of them. None has ever tried to shoot anybody! Just like my autos, knives, lawn and garden tools, none hasn't ran off and committed any crimes. Not will they.

I don't buy ammo from anywhere so eager to bend over for the left that they don't sell AR/AK variants, and I don't spend a dime anywhere that used to sell weapons & ammo but stopped as a result of the left, and that's Walmart where I am. Just give it 20 years, and the cheap Chinese made "fake real knives" at Big 5 will be considered irresponsible to sell bc of how cheaply combat knives can be acquired. Sanctuary city + central American migrants = knife violence even if guns are unavailable, which they always will be in the US.

Right. Because people still have the right to protect themselves and their family. Why should we lose our rights just because other people abuse theirs?

Walmart has a backbone for once? They caved on 21 and over purchases, the caved on no linger selling At style guns. I still wont buy any ammo from them, and dont even joke about buying a gun. They require ridiculous things not required by state.

I don't know about anyone else, but personally I don't like the idea of wholesale stores selling guns to anyone and everyone. I prefer the idea of a specialist shop selling guns, where the guy selling them can use his discretion. Chatting with the person buying the gun "so, what gun club you in?.....you're not in a club?" A guy running a gun shop obviously likes guns and doesn't want them to be more restricted, so he will pay more attention to who he is selling to than a lad on minimum wage at the bottom of the totem pole.

Everyone is jumping at the chance to point to mental health as the cause of these shootings. Though that does cause some of them it is certainly not all of them. These two shooters were sane enough to write reasoned manifestos. The issue is the moral and social decay of the country and lack of meaning. Not a clue how to get that back.

Connor Betts - 24yrs old Patrick Cruisius - 21yrs old Dwayne Craddock - 40yrs old 45yr old factory worker Gary Martin these are the names of the last four mass shootings since Aug. 4th Walmart raising the minimum age of purchase makes absolutely no sense and seems more like a bandaid to the issue at hand. A lot of people are talking about this being a cultural phenomenon and so much of that shows up in the numbers but so little of it is reflected in people’s rhetoric. no matter how high the minimum purchasing age, the solution has just as much if not more to do with mental health and financial condition than the 2nd amendment. although I personally believe that the militia state our country derived from has roots in racially controlled socio-economics our current problem says more about a rogue industry determined to sell more product with a politically motivated salesman being these lone wolf killers.
