If I didn't have so much to do, I would stand in front of the store and picket it. I'll do it after the 25th, what should my sign say?
I'll post pics:)

Of course not, nor will they pull the SSRIs and all the dangerous big pharma medication that builds up to dangerous levels in a young person

All I got to say to Walmart & Dicks Sporting is the following....

You just pissed on the graves of all the men and women who died defending our so called freedoms in all of our passed wars. Thousands and Thousands Died for this Nation! And what about all the kids that grew up without their fathers because their fathers died for this nation! Walmart & Dicks also pissed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in DC

Right, the media reported he had tried to purchase an assault rifle and was turned down. I do not remember the source.

Just called my local Wal Mart too. The sporting goods manager told me they had pulled certain AR rifles from the web store. They were currently still selling them at the store, but you had to ask for them as they were pulled from the display cases.

Yes, I do agree and they are doing it voluntarily, not through government force.

However, I do worry this may be the next step towards what the government will end up implementing for ALL stores though.

This is all SO ridiculous. Let's all cut off our noses to spite our faces. Congress and the feds know how gullible the sheep are that in a crisis, the sheep will only look superficially - such as the guns. Gotta have a gun ban.

But - if the planet reallllly wants to end such killings, there are three things that will accomplish this - and none of them includes anything to do with any kind of weapons ban:

1. End the poverty! When the basic necessities of life are unachievable, people do desperate things (howeever, I still believe this CT shooting was aided and abetted by a few of our alphabet agencies..)

2. Strengthen the family unit. It's a no-brainer how the breakdown of the family unit has had a decimating effect on the planet.

3. Govern LOCALLY - as in get rid of the damn federal government. Why? Because they are the parasite causing numbers 1 & 2. The more "global" our laws go, the more the parasite will suck the host dry.

Walmart Helped Make Newtown Shooter's Assault Weapon The Most Popular In America

It is interesting how much the story has changed. The original official story all day Friday was that he used a Glock hand gun and a Sig Sauer hand Gun. The AR-15 was found in his car with Hi-Cap Magazines.

This, I'm not saying that I like what they're doing but what would the alternative be...would you like the government to tell stores what they cannot and CAN sell? It works both ways. Let's see if they lose a sizeable chunk of change from doing this, which will cause them to rethink their positon. However, you're right because what they are doing may influence other stores to follow suit.

And I should mention that some of these psychiatric drugs have been proven to increase violence in the user.


The shocking link between psychiatric drugs,
suicide, violence and mass murder


[link to www.wnd.com]


Most mass shootings including Columbine and Virginia Tech were committed by people under the influence of psychiatric drugs!

(This is not the whole book, but a sample.)



After some details about the drugs that caused such violence, it says:

"With a rap sheet like that, no wonder pharmaceutical companies are nervous about liability lawsuits over the “rare adverse effects” of their medications. In 1998, for example, GlaxoSmithKline was ordered to pay $6.4 million to Donald Schnell’s surviving family members after the 60-year-old man, just two days after taking Paxil, murdered his wife, daughter and granddaughter in a fit of rage.
But reporting the truth about the relationship between psychiatric medications and mass murderers is just the beginning. “MANIA” also reveals clear and compelling evidence that psychiatric drugs hurt children physically – causing shrinkage of their brains, damage to their hearts and other significant effects.

Perhaps even more disconcerting, “MANIA” exposes the federal government’s bizarre preoccupation with screening all American school kids to see if they’re mentally ill – a process that often leads directly to a prescription for mood-altering drugs for the child who didn’t answer the questions properly.

“The problem,” said David Kupelian, managing editor of WND and Whistleblower, “is that many Americans don’t exactly trust the federal government to determine what constitutes ‘mental health.’” Incredibly, as this issue reveals, there is even a government effort to proclaim an infant-and-toddler mental health crisis!"

Because I am sure they(govt) already truly know there are ways to solve these problems, yet they do things that create further problems and add their own version of a solution which is nothing but to further give us problems.

Vicious cycle.
