    No not really. They do not sell machines who's design purpose is to sow death and destruction.... except maybe the Oxycontin makers. They should be in jail for murder.

    I think the CEO of Dicks made the same claim a while back. How'd that work out? My family used to spend several grand a year at Dicks. I got most of my workout stuff and tennis shoes there, my wife used to buy rain gear for herself and some of her archery students there, and my son-a hard core fisherman, bought lots of lures and had his reels refilled with line at the nearby Dicks. Haven't been back in a couple years.

It's comments like this that makes me think right wing gun bators want civil war b/c they love their guns so much they are not satisfied with only shooting targets or animals...
    credible proof required for that.

    It is you gun banners who want to start a civil war-and you all will be hoping other people with guns carry out your wet dreams of gun owners being attacked by government agents

    Neither do gun makers who sell to the public. You are confusing sporting firearms with military bombers and artillery

    In the end, it's all about optics and choices. In the end, Walmart made the best decision they could. The choice to either piss off gun enthusiasts or piss off those that wanted Walmart to do something. They chose the former and I doubt they will take a hit for it.
    It's a good thing for the gun shops. A bad thing the gun buying public.

    An empty gesture to satisfy those who think the gun or the "clip" is the problem.

    Booze is responsible for a fair share of fatalities on the road. Please share the positive health effects of Jim Beam or Smirnoff.

    No you are so wrong you make my stomach hurt by laughing at this post. So it's the left's fault that people with guns will carry out a civil war? Read what you type man...
    The next few days are going to be a category Level 5 hurricane of trolls, bots, conspiracy theories, fake stories, hoaxes, and hit jobs. MAGA-land is in panic mode, and it will be ugly. Be careful, be skeptical, share good stuff, report bad stuff, and don't argue with idiots.

    The only "sport" that most gun owners participate in is suicide or murder.

    At the same time, gun violence – from big-city murders to mass shootings – has spurred debate in Congress and state legislatures over proposals to limit Americans’ access to firearms. Counting murders and suicides, nearly 40,000 people died of gun-related violence in the United States in 2017, the highest annual total in decades.

    “Most”? The estimates are there are 120+million gun owners in the US. “Most” participate in suicide or murder?
