Walmart pulls guns, ammo from Alaska shelves, then the order was suddenly reversed from headquarters

Across the nation, Walmart had a new temporary store mandate: All guns and ammunition must come off of shelves and put into storage in back. The company is anticipating widespread looting on Election Day or the day after, if elections do not provide a Biden presidency.

In midtown Anchorage, the guns and ammunitions section was completely cleared out on Friday midmorning, presumably put into storage, as it has been across the nation.

Then, in a surprise reversal, Walmart issued a new order: Return the guns and ammo to store floors.

“After civil unrest earlier this week resulted in damage to several of our stores, consistent with actions we took over the summer, we asked stores to move firearms and ammunition from the sales floor to a secure location in the back of the store in an abundance of caution. As the current incidents have remained geographically isolated, we have made the decision to begin returning these products to the sales floor today,” the statement said.

In Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and other major cities, store owners began boarding up their exteriors on Friday, in anticipation of rioting over the election results.

  • The Dem’s agenda – “If we can’t have America, then nobody can have it.”

    • I suspect you may be correct, unfortunately.

  • Well, obviously, everything will be fine if we just do more to appease the anarchists – starting with voting for Alice, Allen and Hunter’s chairman.

    • You mean “the Big Guy”? Come on… he’s the Guy..

  • After Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico made landfall in the 1950s and 1960s, National Guard troops were sent in and given orders to shoot to kill anyone caught looting. The orders were stapled to every standing phone pole in town for everyone to read. This is what is called for now to stop the new lawlessness that has taken over the country. These coward ANTIFA and BLM looters won’t be making the news anymore.

    • People can be hired to sit in these shops and bag some thugs when they come in. No limit.

  • During the Rodney King riots in the early 90’s, looting was rampant in South Central LA. But Korean store owners posted their own snipers on rooftops. Looters moved along. Good strategy.

  • I dread the day… that the only way to restore civility is to kill those not willing to be civil. This is a spiritual problem foremost, and an educational one second. Churches – where is our witness? How can we let evil run rampant and unchallenged? How can we restore good civics and love for America to our school curricula?
    Letting riots go unchallenged is horrible – appeasement never works, just ask Neville Chamberlain.
    Running to another nation won’t solve even your own personal safety, let alone America’s – and where would we go? Everywhere else is worse.
    The solution is complex and multi-generational, but must start with courageous law enforcement and effectual punishment for perps – killing them just makes martyrs, which get used as a recruitment tool. Releasing them for whatever reason only emboldens them – send the rioters to Gitmo.
    After stating what should be obvious, if it does come down to citizen action… vote courageously and stock up on ammo.

    • If you remove those not willing to be civil you’re left with a better society. There’s a reason toilets can be flushed.

      Good luck stocking up on ammo during an election year. The shelves are bare at Cabela’s, Sportsmans, AmmoCan, etc.

      • Have to go on line and get lucky. I got 2 boxes of 9mm honey badger before they sold out.

  • Buy honey badger ammo. Better than hollow points.

  • SIMPLE FIX:
    —————
    Stop any bandits from entering at the front door (they’ll be wearing masks/bandannas/hoodies & shades). Record and disseminate the faces of those who steal and rampage.
    ————–
    Y’all got this sh$t bassackwards Walmart. #blitheringidiots

    • Everybody’s wearing masks……CONvenient huh?….

  • it’s lol because y’all are the gun lovers

    • Are you a riot and arson lover?

    • Lovers of the constitution. Fixed it for us.

  • Looks like they don’t expect Democrats win

  • “As the current incidents have remained geographically isolated…….”

    Translation: Looting and rioting have been contained to urban socialist s**tholes of the L48 and isn’t expected here.

  • Walmart already stopped selling handgun ammunition long ago so if it isn’t a hunting rifle caliber it’s not on their shelf anyway. Last I recall they took the hunting rifle philosophy hard so you wouldn’t even find 5.56 or 7.62 on their shelf.

    That they would or would not remove their inventory isn’t a particularly threatening matter as the kind of dirtbag that loots likes to carry. Concealed carry with a rifle would take planning beyond what those instant gratification types seem capable of. A30.06 in those idiot’s hands would be about as useful as half the big screens they broke on their way out the display window.

    And to whomever recommends shooting them rather than allow them to victimize society at large; I concur.

    • I take credit for the no bag limit on thugs.

  • It would be racist to not allow those guns to be looted in the leftists time of need.

  • The Walmart employees need to arm themselves with those guns and ammo and defend their stores. This BS is crazy. Our country was created because we were being looted by the British and now we can’t defend ourselves against people violently attacking our stores and public buildings? I will adhere to Sheriff Grady Judd’s recommendation.

  • Heavily armed guards would work!

  • The conservatives have been armed and schooled in the use of guns since a young age. They don’t need to make last minute purchases. Evidently the powers to be at WalMart want ANTIFA to have access……..
