Skip to comments.Walmart responds to 'suspended ammo' story
Posted on 01/14/2013 8:23:50 PM PST by HiJinx
The blogosphere has exploded with outrage in response to news that Walmart is suspending ammunition sales in anticipation of the Obama administrations gun-control recommendations to Congress but the retail giant tells WND the reports arent true.
That information is inaccurate, said Ashley Hardie, a spokeswoman located at Walmarts corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.
WND then asked whether the retail chain is cutting back on orders of ammunition.
No, Hardie said. Were continuing to serve our customers as we have in the past.
She said Walmarts ammunition sales policy has not changed, even amid talk of gun-control legislation in Washington, D.C.
The uproar began when the InvestmentWatch blog posted a story headlined, Breaking & confirmed: Walmart is not going to order any more ammo.
CNS News cited the report, and talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh mentioned it during his Monday show.
According to the InvestmentWatch report, a man claimed to have visited his local Walmart and noticed the store was out of almost every kind of ammo.

It was probably wrong at the start. Gun owners, in just a few months bought enough weapons and ammo to outfit China and India.
Good luck keeping up with the demand under those conditions.
So Churchill was right about boots and the truth.
Rush taking about this must have pushed some clarification on wally world stance
Truth is, the government bought it all up and there is none in the distribution channels for Walmart to order.
All I know is that our local Walmart had plenty of ammo, and then they didn’t, right after the school shooting and Obama’s anti gun demagoguery.
A story that originated on a blog was wrong? Shocked!
IIRC, the original report was from someone who overheard a clerk attempting to order more and being told by corporate that they were not accepting any more orders for ammo.
Not that they were out, but that they wouldn’t be getting any.
“Don’t leave home without it”
That makes me hungry.
My Wife was doing a search at the WalMart website tonight, and informed me that there were three boxes of 9mm Luger ten miles north of us.
I drove up there to get all three boxes.
They would only allow me to buy two boxes.
OMGosh! LOL! “cool canned bacon”!
Perhaps, but I suspect an unknowledgeable clerk misunderstood what corporate head office stated. I’m in retail and I can tell you, from experience, what cones fro. Corporate is often misunderstood.
It’s good to getvob top of it and hold Wal-Mart accountable nevertheless.
I’ll fetch the eggs and tobasco.
The government doesn’t buy ammo from Wally world.
They get it via contracts with manufacturers.
It takes time to write proposals, find potential suppliers, evaluate them, then award the contract.
Bureaucracy moves s l o o o w l y.
It was 99c a can in the 80’s
