From the Outdoor Wire;
And despite the breathless news spread over the internet yesterday, you shouldn't be warning your friends to run out and boycott Walmart. Yesterday's internet reports that the world's largest retailer was not reordering ammunition in anticipation of the Obama administration's gun-control moves kicked off another of the instant firestorms that characterize today's instant information distribution.
Walmart says they're being hammered by something that company spokesman Ashley Hardie says "is inaccurate." She says the company's ammunition sales policy has not changed, even with the talk in Washington. "We're continuing to serve our customers as we have in the past," Hardie says.
Apparently, the report was kicked off when stores reported they were not being allowed to reorder ammunition. We've been told that the retail giant's computer inventory system won't permit the reordering of products they can't quickly source.
Although unspoken, the implication is pretty simple: Walmart can't get hot caliber ammunition either.
