No, you can just safely assume I’m not in the “boycott every business that doesn’t agree with me” crowd.

More specifically you can safely assume I’m not in the hypocritical “I’ll boycott a business that doesn’t agree with me, but only if it’s convenient for me and doesn’t actually require me to change my shopping habits” crowd lol.

Well that sucks. I usually bought all my ammo there because we get a 10% discount. They told us about it early at the morning meeting, so I bought a hundred bucks worth after my shift.

The sporting goods lady was mad about the letter bragging about how much we're gonna reduce our market share because it might affect our bonuses. Lol

This often happens when a business tries to get all political. Customers and employees usually take the biggest hit. :/

Honestly I never go to Walmart anyway , my wife might stop at neighborhood market occasionally if she needs 1 or 2 items but buys our groceries from crest. I have daughter and son-in-law that both work at Walmart so I don't really want them to go under ,but I spend my money online or mom and pop places

I wish HEB was a thing in Oklahoma. Strictly groceries, epic store brand copies, walmart pricing. Buckees too. In Lawton, we have Walmart, Target, and Countrymart... I don't shop Target, and like most IGA/Albertson/United type grocery chains, Countrymart prices are considerably higher than Walmart. They put up a good fight, but the small price you pay for smaller business adds up quick on a budget.

There are a lot of 2A supporters that shop at Wal Mart alot of rural shoppers frequent Wal-Mart as well.

Living in NE Oklahoma and frequenting 2A and shooting forums vastly filters what you see compared to say, that family of 5 buying $300 of groceries in Simi Valley CA, Hornell, NY, or Naperville, IL. The number of handgun ammo buyers at Walmart pale in comparison to housewives and grandmothers buying groceries, clothes, bikes, Xbox games, electronics, and all the other things that Walmart sells. The ones that will stop shopping there as a result are even smaller.

So we give up then, ignore their actions......and you wonder why our rights are slipping away every year....the point is not buy anything from Wal Mart , nothing , nothing at all .......just sell your guns and give in

I wish members had that kind of conviction everytime the NRA bargained off a little piece of our rights. Imagine the organization it could have remained today.

No, you just support your local gun shop, mail order biz, or better yet get your FFL, hang out your own shingle and run your business according to your own principles instead of demanding others do so...
