Bentonville, Arkansas — Gun owners have been under attack in recent days by companies who continue to change their policies on firearm purchases and possession of firearms in their stores.
These policies seem to be straight out of Michael Bloomberg’s Christmas wish list.
Here are just a few of the changes we have seen in retail stores in recent years:
Raising the age limit to purchase a firearm to 21-years-old.
Stopping the sale of modern rifles.
Stopping the sale of handguns.
Stopping the sale of modern rifle ammunition.
Stopping the sale of handgun ammunition.
Requesting or banning the open carry of firearms.
Gun owners have to wonder why we are seeing a sudden change in policy from major retailers in recent years. There may be some explanation from a recently uncovered document.
In April 2008 Walmart sat down with Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns.
Together they created the “Responsible Firearms Retailer” partnership.
This is directly off of Walmart’s website:
Not only is Walmart a member in this partnership, but they are also a Charter Member and even brag about it on their website!
The “Responsible Firearms Retailer” document reveals a 10-point code that is meant to help retailers “keep guns out of the wrong hands.”
It is unclear how many companies have signed onto this code, or what role other major retailers may have played in its development.
It is important to note that none of the above recent gun control measures are part of this code.
However, this established relationship with America’s most gun-hating billionaire shows that his influence in the American retail industry is growing deeper and deeper.
If Bloomberg and his radical gun control groups can get retailers to prohibit the sale and possession of firearms in their stores, he wins.
This may have been the purpose of this relationship that began over 10 years ago.
Some gun owners were willing to look the other way when Walmart implemented their recent gun control agenda.
Will they look the other way now that an established relationship has been uncovered between Walmart and gun-grabbing billionaire Michael Bloomberg?
