Is it true that Wal-Mart is going with the Liberal Agenda and holding ammunition in their warehouses so that it is not available

    I'm not an "evil corporation" crier, but I would think Wal-Mart would see some interest in limiting/controlling the stockage of ammo in order to increase the perception of a low supply. The propaganda and paranoia is already in the general public's mind. It's not like if they were to control the milk supply at stores, if people aren't hearing about a milk shortage they would just go somewhere else with lower prices. Obviously, a low supply would increase demand and prices. I think they have the capability since they are experts at the Just-in-time logistics model but most likely they probably realise that creating their own supply/demand is harder and they don't really get an increased profit margin that's worth the extra warehouse space needed to regulate the flow. Politics have nothing to do with it (at least this specific question).

    In my state Mississippi our walmart's sell ar15 rugger mini 14's rugger mini 30's but we are experiencing a massive ammo shortage at walmart. I wonder if the people who work there maybe get first dib's. I got to a hole in the wall pawn shop. They have all ammo in stock and at a decent price not to highly gouged even 22 lr. It is loacated in lucedale next to wayne lee's

    I often do my grocery shopping at WalMart because of their low prices. I save about $5 - $10 per trip.
    I'm pretty sure those fresh fruits and vegetables don't come from China.

    All the more reason to limit shopping at Big Wally. I shope there for motor oil and end of season hunting supplies on special and that's about it.

    Samuel Rawlings Walton, (Sam's grandson!) donated $300K to an Obama PAC.
    It had nothing to do with reciprocity,

    WM has also profited handsomely from the "Liberal" agenda.
    The "employer mandate" of Obamacare cripples small retailers that compete with WM.
    Dodd-Frank "froze" the cap on credit card processing fees. Puts millions on WM's coffers!
    Raising the "minimum wage" also throws a much heavier burden on small businesses that compete with WM.

    I, too, watched a TV interview with an ex WM "Mgr" who publicly stated, "WM stocks the cheapest product it can and pays the lowest wage it can! "

    I have heard dept mgrs brag that WM marked up some items 56%!

    And here's Walmart's current position on fraternization in their ethics manual. Seems they still think they can control their employee's social lives. Look for "fraternization". h.ttp://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/IROL/11/112761/corpgov/Ethics%20_Current.pdf

    Bubba: I suspect Walmart has dropped handguns because it's just too much red tape fuss and bother in too many jurisdictions. Also, as everyone knows, handgun prices and stock availability is very unstable. And there's the pilfering that runs rampant among Walmart's super-low paid, super-low quality staff. If employees steal flat screen TVs, that's one thing. But if a registered pistol turns up missing ... oh, oh! No longer just an in-house cleanup on aisle 8. It's a federal matter! Just too easy to smuggle a handgun out in the lunchbox. I'm quite sure choosing not to sell handguns was a purely business decision. Walmart has always demonstrated that the bottom line $$$ is ALL it is concerned about. Of course, generally speaking, that just happens to gel with the typical conservative's bottom line. Purely coincidental I'm sure but it is what it is. Alice Walton developed a municipal airport and Christian kid's camp in Arkansas and she was instrumental in establishing the Crystal Bridges Art Museum. That somehow makes her a liberal? The Walton Family Foundation contributes significantly to education reform and "conservation" (primarily initiatives for so-called sustainable "green" economic development). I'm not sure either of those could be classified as necessarily liberal (or conservative). Walmart claims it works hard to be "equitable" between both parties in its political contributions. But from 2005 to 2012, "58 percent of [Walmart's] Political Action Committee's donations and 76 percent of the Walton family’s contributions went to candidates endorsed by the pro-gun lobby." (Huffington Post, August 18, 2013). During the last election, the Walton family donated $400,000 to Restore Our Future, Mitt Romney's Super Political Action Committee so I don't see that a $300K donation to Obama (if there actually was such a contribution) signified much of anything except an attempt to be "equitable."

    At any rate, I stated that Walmart is about as conservative-leaning a corporation as one is going to find anywhere. Their actions speak much louder than a pattern of semi-equitable political contributions.

    Here's the story on the Walmart co-worker couple fired for dating. Ironically, they first met each other in the store's gun department. Was no sex in the parking lot. h.ttp://www.nytimes.com/1993/07/14/nyregion/fraternization-friction-store-aisles-new-york-challenges-wal-mart-over-dismissal.html

    Well Honk, does that offset the $300k the other Walton contributed to Obama? How about Alice Walton and her supporting several "liberal"groups?
    Yep, WM is hard core anti union, that's why Homaski didn't like 'em!
    WM ain't against "union" (some od their stores actually do have union employees!) because of "union"! They're anti union because of tje "wage" factor. They have no interest in having any outside interest telling them their business!
    WM hires couples (husband & wife), sons, daughters, parents, in-laws etc, etc...
    Only termination I witnessed was over a floor manager having sex with an associate while the associate was on lunch break. Guess the sex show in the parking lot was a bit overboard! LOL!
    The "union" thing? Yeah, I'll consider that "Conservative".
    Won't sell handguns? THAT, amigo, is Liberal to the core.In fact! The only "firearm" my "local" WM will peddle is "black powder"! NO cartridge arms! PERIOD!

    I don't shop WM for several reasons.
    1. It's cheap imported "crap"!
    2. It's cheap imported "crap-o-la"!
    3. It's cheap... well, I think you get the picture!

    I don't see WM as Conservative/Liberal. I see it as a wart on America's hind side!

    A few years back I saw a documentary on that outfit. They fired a young couple for developing a relationship (they subsequently married). Yep, Walmart had a corporate rule against employees fraternizing at the workplace or anyplace else. Claimed it would reduce their productivity on the job. Walmart's battles with attempts at organizing its stores are legendary. The corporation has no respect for American industry or its workers and makes no secret of that. Walmart wrote the book on outsourcing. It has also written the book on conservative business management.

    The Walmart family's connections to the Republican party are no secret. Bush senior awarded Sam Walton the Freedom Medal. John Walton was the single largest contributor to Jeb Bush's 2002 governor's campaign. He has stopped contributing only because he was killed in a plane crash three years later.

    By the way, Sam Walton was no country hick made good. He was a frat boy (known as "the hustler") with a degree in economics. During WWII he was a captain in military intelligence (but did not serve overseas). He married into money. A lot of it. And that money got him started in the retail business (16 Ben Franklin stores).

    How you figure that, Honk?
    Wal-Mart being "conservative", that is.

    Walmart is only buying enough inventory to get by from moment to moment. Can't blame them. They don't want to get stuck with a bunch of overpriced inventory when the mania subsides and prices collapse. Also, I really doubt you could find a more conservative-leaning corporation than Walmart.

    I had a chance today to buy two bricks of CCI 40gr
    .22lr, standard velocity for $60 a brick. Prices are coming down some, a month ago that would have been $90.

    No. As others have said, stockpiling merchandise costs money. Selling merchandise makes money. I talked with the guy at the sporting goods counter at my local WalMart a while back, and asked if they ever get any .22 ammo in. He said sure, they get regular deliveries. Said they had a delivery that morning, a few hours before I was there. It was sold out within minutes, even with a two-box limit. The paranoia crowd finds out when deliveries are expected and they are there waiting.
