  1. That’s some decent news.

    20 years late and a half measure but an important step forward so thank you Walmart

  4. Well… It’s a start I guess. Let’s hope this sentiment snowballs and continues further.

    i am not a fan of walmart’s actions on the most part, but here i really thank them

  6. Literally the first time I can say, nice work Walmart. It’s a step. I personally appreciate it.

    • Laws don’t work, maybe rules will. Criminals and psychopaths sure will listen to walmart. Literally did nothing at all but lose them business and keep second amendment supporters away. Just make walmart a gun free zone all together i say. That way nobody, even people with criminal intent can go there with a gun.

    • billl o’connel : A small step in the right direction. Let’s hope they keep moving ✌️

    • A J : Trump Troll, right? . . . Smh

    • A J : Dead customers, “lose them business,” too, son . . . Jeez . . .

    Walmart doesn’t have a choice really, loose some of their customer base and staff enough to cause problems for them, I support the second amendment I just don’t support assault weapons.

  8. Employees are legally entitled to a safe work environment & liability lawsuits are probably starting to sting or taking a bite out of Wally World’s insurance coverage.

  9. I wish this young man Thomas Marshall a bright future. He is well spoken and a great representative. Thank you to him and his fellow employees. And Thank you to Walmart for stepping up and showing the country how its done!

  10. How did that crazy shooter get his assault rifle, especially he has a criminal record in the past?

  11. Ban all guns

    This Guy Should Run For Office!!

  13. This is fantastic news for mom and pop gun shops across the US! WalMart was killing their ammunition sales. Not anymore!

  14. PEOPLE POWER!

  15. Well done, Mr Marshall, for speaking out. The sad thing is the fact that it took a middle management(?) employee to get this whole initiative started.

  16. Kudos to this man.

  17. Good job Mr. Marshall!! Keep fighting the good fight!

  18. So proud of this young man

  19. Bull crap. First Wal-Mart does not listen to it’s employees, They will fire you before they listen to you. second they have been cutting back on those sales anyway (a lot of people not happy about it ) the ammo in those shootings were not bought at Wal-Mart they don’t sell that type of round or at least most stores don’t. Like the weapons’ the ammo was owned for some time, not a recent perches. All this does is make more people turn to in home reloading and prevent honest people from buying. A criminal is a criminal laws don’t matter to them and if they can’t get it in a store then they will probably break into someone’s home to get what they want (hope your not there when they do).

    It’s a little crazy that corporations now have MORE moral fiber than govt. From banning hate speech and the associated antisocial groups that practice it, to ACTING on gun control. Why is in part because they have figured out that the individuals involved are A) a minority 10% or less of Americans and B) they can live without them. Politicians lack this resolve.
