    Wal-Mart Adds Guns Alongside Butter

    Hooray!

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is quietly bringing back rifles, shotguns and ammunition to hundreds of U.S. stores as the hurting retail giant seeks to reinvigorate its one-stop shopping appeal and attract more male customers.
    The world's largest retailer stopped selling hunting rifles and bullets at all but a third of its U.S. stores five years ago, citing diminishing sales. It is now restoring them to hundreds of locations, bringing the total to nearly half of its more than 3,600 U.S. namesake stores, as part of a larger push to restore "heritage categories" of merchandise such as fishing rods and bolts of sewing fabric that it removed in an attempt to go upscale that backfired.

    That's bull****. It makes no sense to put it next to the butter, that's the refrigerated section!

    Sounds like you could have used a good local store.

    The local guys were overpriced big time.
    Even the pawn shops had used guns for way more than what they were worth.

    WSJ is a heavily biased source?

    The title of the article alone gives that away. Though CNN isn't much better in terms of bias.
