    I can't stand people like that...

    Probably is a red flag on the Missouri law as well... but my Lord...

    Assuming it's similar to the previous ban, we would most definitely be able to buy them. You could still get an AR 15 during that ban because it only banned specific features, not necessarily the whole gun.

    That would be an overreaction, yes... That also doesn't characterize all of the comments you listed...

    You're right but I'd say there is more variety, and it's easier/cheaper to do with the AR. However, you can most definitely modify a ruger pretty heavily.

    I LOVE IT! Thank You Walmart! This is definitely the way to making things right! My worry now is that there will be some gun toting apple pie loving non flag burning save America dude that just finished his 12th beer thinking "screw them..I will show them how wrong they are and I will bring my semi automatic into the store because it's my 2A right!". Wait for it...wait for it.....

    I never found their prices that great. Academy has much better prices and much better ammo to include Hornady.
    Ammoseek is an awesome tool for great ammo prices.

    "Non flag burning"? WTF is that supposed to mean exactly?

    What a bizarre nonsensical rant you have here. Sounds like someone may be on their 12th beer and it's not this fictitious apple pie loving non flag burner person in your head.

    Besides, you don't even live here but you're being a hardcore cheerleader over something that doesn't effect you in any way nor will it effect anyone else as you can easily get these things elsewhere. Truly bizarre.

    I thought you believed liberals just sucked off the govt teat?
    Now you admit they run the most successful companies?

    When did I ever say that ALL liberals just sucked off the guvment teat - which is what your comment seems to imply- now if you just listen to the majority of the dem/lib candidates forPresident that is what they are offering to garner votes.

    And yes liberal white men do run most of the large successful corporations- the reason I find it interesting is the underling libs rail against these large corps and then find they are run by libs

    Spot on, bro. I mean, the Walton family has traditionally backed Republicans, but they did apparently make a small donation to Hillary in 2016 ... probably because of the Arkansas connection. So take that, and the fact they are are sick of gun violence and don't want idiots carrying AR15s through there store in open carry states ... and bam... now they are flaming liberals! I'll join you in the boycott.

    You do realize that an AR15 is a 22 rifle made by the Armalite Company(the A) and the R stands for Rifle

    You do realize Colt nabbed the AR patent for over half a century ago and they still hold the trademark?

    What does that have to with what AR stands for or that it is a 22 rifle?

    Dicks banned assault rifles in 2018 and more guns and ammo in 2019, their stock is up.
    Target is up after their terrible bathroom deeds.
    Nike is up since signing Kaepernick.


    People are free to spend their money where they choose, but the outrage isn’t going to accomplish much more than getting yourself worked up over something you can’t control and won’t impact. These companies know what they are doing.

    Totally correct. Boycotts and misguided outrage are for self centered self important types. I don't shop at WalMart anyway. And I damn sure don't want WalMartian cooties - among other things - on my food.
