WalMart Suspends Ammo Orders Pending Gun Control Decision

Posted on: January 14th, 2013

WalMart reportedly has stopped selling ammunition ahead of the Obama administration’s anticipated gun control recommendations to Congress — and uncertainty over what new laws may be coming.

According to the Investment Watch blog, WalMart Corporation will no longer place new ammunition orders pending “the upcoming decision on the Second Amendment.”

A customer stood with a WalMart employee as a call was made to the corporate office.

    I hope this isn’t true, but if it is, I’ll not buy another piece of Sporting goods from Wal-Mart!

    • medivac

      As far as I’m concerned, Wal-Mart can get out of the sporting goods all together !!

  • Ajean72

    We have turned into the USSR.

  • AmericanWarrior

    Looks like another good reason not to shop at wallyworld.

    • KDS

      Sports Authority is doing it also!!

  • Wally

    Walmart supports treason. Any infringement of the 2nd amendment or the sworn oath to protect it ” without purpose of evasion” is an act of treason. Now we know where Walmart stands.

    So Long Walmart

    Shop locally, support local merchants, even if it costs more. Walmart won’t really feel the difference, but you will be doing the patriotic thing by stocking up on guns and ammo from people you can trust. Dig in and prepare, folks, this is going to get ugly.

    • fliteking

      Yep.

  • gunner48

    Do U Belee Dat! Wal Mart is drinking the kool aide, and dancing to the socialist/commie tune…..Americans should do the same with Wal mart a week with no sales would shut the bums down….

  • ZiggyStardust

    What’s next? This is really ridiculous. It does however leave an open market for a large scale ammunition discounter.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chrisdixonstudios Chris Dixon

    Then we shall suspend buying ammo from Walmart..oh already did!! God Bless our Mess †††

    I do not understand why everyone is concerned with a Presidential EO. Obama does not have that authority and if he takes it-it needs to be completely ignored. It’s unconstitutional. And Obama is NOT a King. We grant him only Executive power! He is bound by his Oath of office which states he will preserve the Constitution-not rewrite it!

    • pduffy

      He didn’t have the authority to give the illegals amnesty. He did it anyway. Nobody stopped him. Congress didn’t file the articles of impeachment. They went along with it. This is how dictatorships form.

    Bye bye walmart

  • GeorgiaVoter2014

    Time to boycott Walmart

  • stan williams

    This is Not only walmart. ALL sport stores are running out. The manufac. can’t make it fast enough, as ALL orders are on back-order. Have friends with shooting ranges and retail, can’t get ammo. The stuff has been flying off shelves..and the ranges the last 6 mos. have been covered up. This is for real. Semper Fidelis

  • luvmy357

    Not sure what this is but I bought 300 rounds on Saturday with no issues.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    Has any of the commenters called the local store and asked them?

    This sounds more like an attempt to damage Wal Mart.

  • ONTIME

    Pounded on by the left, this Faker in the Wh, the governments NLRB and the unions Wally Mart is showing signs of caving. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the flag of the Peoples Republic of China flag being hoisted in every WM parking lot soon and another american success story is blown to smithereens by greed corruption and lies of the communist left…..without the 2nd amendment, your freedoms as stated by the Constitution won’t be worth squat.
    There is nothing good about communism, absolutely nothing….

  • David Rogers

    Obama bin Biden are cutting deals with Walmart.. F Walmart, I will not shop there.

  • Jim Crowe

    Boycot Wal-Mart

  • fraccle

    Regardless of what happens, I will not shop at my New York Walmart for a full year starting today. On January 14, 2014, I will assess the situation and decide at that time on whether to continue to shop elsewhere for subsequent years. We’ve gotta start hitting all those complicit with unconstitutional behavior where it hurts the most– In their wallet. Needless to say, Democrat and Republican voters who care for the constitution should band together to vote down all politicians who are working to ween us off the 2nd amendment completely. That’s all this 7 round mag business is, next it will be 3 round mag and then 1 round mag and then they’ll take the guns away.

  • Marlin208

    Ok, I will suspend my shopping at Wal Mart till they start the ammo up again, and if they don’t well there are a lot of other stores.
    This kiss A attitude towards BO is sickening and you are now seeing how dictators get started.

    • fraccle

      Make it a year. I swear to Dod I won’t walk into Walmart for a year from today, even if they start selling ammo tomorrow.

  • Capt. Jim

    I just spoke with an associate at Walmart’s Corp. office. They said the rumor is NOT TRUE. They are still selling & ordering Ammo and guns. They apologized for not having much stock and are working to find ammo from other sources. — I do agree that “IF” this turns out to be a lie and IF they fold in the face of an out of control Govt. —then we should all boycott. I believe there are enough gun owning customers to hurt their bottom line and change their mind… IF we need to. Relax & Stay tuned folks.

  • James Fontana

    Sears and Target are looking better all the time. I did not really like Wal-Mart anyway. In case some need reminding Wal-Mart was a contributor to Obama’s re-election.

  • PENGUIN

    CUSTOMERS WILL JUST FIND ANOTHER SOURCE….WALMART WILL BE THE LOSER

  • GDC

    Suspend SHOPPING at WalMart until they understand WhO shoppes there!!!

  • Usagent

    I dont buy from Walmart anyways on ammo, there is not a difference on price so who cares. If they want to cater to the Govt then I can shop Target and Kroger. All that means is less crowds for me.

    • James Crawford

      I wish we had a Kroger’s down here in central Florida…a great store.

  • wdcraftr

    I am boycotting Walmart, Dennys, B of A, Coke, McDonald’s, so far.. As my list grows, I’ll boycott more.. Need to change from Google to Yahoo I guess too…

  • http://www.facebook.com/ray.ake Ray Ake

    BOYCOTT~~~~Wal-Mart,,let them lose all that money,,and see how they like it !!! not just ammo,,,everything they sell,,buy nothing from them,,let them go hungry and have no money or job’s

  • wdcraftr

    If Govt get’s anymore of the 2nd Amendment, then you have NOTHING left to Protect the entire Constitution, or Bill of Rights, well maybe a BB gun and a 22…. If you think that those in Govt have Our Best Interest in mind while taking our Guns, You are Completely Stupid…

    • James Crawford

      Dip them BBs in cyanide.

  • CrustyOldGeezer

    Is the story still on CNS?

    I keep running into “denied access” messages.

  • David

    Everyone new when Walmart started populating the world that they would take control of alot, now its time to ban Walmart from our shopping lists until they figure things out.

  • Robert Myles

    I always buy my ‘ammo from small gunshops or as a last resort Bass Pro as there is one locally. Otherwise i do my own hand loading, whichis not only a gret hobby but also a way to fly below the radar of the obama snoops. With this executiv order crap about to hit and here in New york our wonderful carpet bagger gov, the return of a coumo is contemplating doing something similar along with truly draconian gun laws. I ran across an email from the Tea Pasrty with a link to constitutional sheriff’s org. It is a letter that van be downloaded send it to your friends in all counties and send signed copies to the local sheriff to find out if he is with us in protecting the Second Amendment or with Obama and destroying it. The first shot’s have already been fired in this monumental struggle to retain our Republic and the Constitution that sets it apart from all other nation’s on this earth. Stand with us or bow and lick the hand that feeds you as the chains tighten around your neck’s for your subgugation into slavery

    • James Crawford

      I tried to buy a box of 50 in 38 Special, 158 grain Round Nose Lead about two years ago at a local gun shop / shooting range and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend $29.00 for it. I’ll give WalMart credit for having the lowest local ammo prices over the years.

  • AL, Orange Park, FL

    not true just bought $80 worth for bird season
    according to their customer support rep they are selling what is on the shelf until BO does whatever the heck the punk intends to do, so go buy up the ammo now while still can but you still can at walmart owned and operated by the friendly government of China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • bayman61

    I hate Wal Mart. They are nothing more than a Chinese export store. Looks like I will be shoppping at other stores now. Even if I have to drive a little further to get there. Wal Mart cowards.

    • notax1776

      I remember when wallymart used to advertise and brag their stores only carried American made products. It was not long before that changed. Maybe some picket lines at the entrance to wallymart parking lots would be in order for reeducation purposes. If my wallymart is like most, I believe I can safely say the majority of their customers are gun owners.

  • Gerda LaGrasse

    RIP Sam Walton. Glad you’re not here to see this.

  • Bighead50

    “Communist Mart” -”BeanerMart” – “GettoMart” = Boycott ! Scum suckers.

  • KDS

    Customers suspend buying groceries from Walmart till they start selling ammo again!!!!!

  • KDS

    Sports Authority suspends selling ammo also! Suspend buying anything from them unless they permanently restock there shelves same goes for Walmart!!

  • not as stupid as you!

    I just called the corp office and this is a lie, Wal Mart is ordering all they can get, it’s going faster than they can get it in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would they lie to us about this, are they in the left pocket, what’s going on with real info??????????????????

  • Darrel

    The article said Walmart will not be placing new orders for ammo. I bought ammo today. They are still selling it they just will not buy any more.
