Wal-Mart is Everything

Selected responses from an online petition to Wal-Mart stores, urging them to continue selling handgun ammunition.

To: Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.

This is a petition asking Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. to please refrain from honoring any other petitions that threaten their customer's rights, as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. As you read this, Michael Moore, the "Director of Bowling for Columbine", has started a petition in hopes of getting Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. to stop selling handgun ammunition. He has titled his petition Wal-Mart is "Nothing Without Its Customers".

The title of this petition is "Wal-Mart is Everything, Because of its Customers".

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

I'm a career Police Officer and my family and I shop at Walmart, exclusively. However if you cave into the liberal socialist scum and stop selling ammunition. I will not shop with you ever again. You should learn from K-Marts debacle with fat Rosie O'Donnell. I made them the same promise and I have not been back into one of their stores. The boycott against K-Mart has put them at the door of bankruptcy and has helped your company. Please learn from their mistakes.
Robert Clements, #175


I love Wal-Mart and shop there for everything primarily because they honor my rights.

I don't own a gun. I don't hunt. I However I find this a violation of AMERICA!!!
Todd Brewster, #16371


Dear Wal-Mart: If you cave in to the anti-White wishes of the demented liar Michael Moore (real name Izzy Fishbein), and defy the wishes of the majority of your customers, I will never set foot in a Walmart again, and will never stop encouraging others to do the same. You can pump all the diversity bilge you want, but you customers are WHITE, and you screw us over and you are done for; I'm shorting your stock as I write. Get rid of that Jew Rosey O'Donald and her hatchet faced friend while you're at it.
Victor J. Gerhard, Esq., #16590


In the food and snack areas, Wal-Mart sells pork or pork-lard-fried products Muslims and Jews believe are abominable. I'm sure the apparel merchandise includes many items many customers consider terribly, even sinfully, immodest. Unlike the case with guns, these examples are firmly believed by some to endanger immortal soul, not merely life and limb. But a community store in our heterogeneous country serves only by serving all and sundry, not allowing the philosohy, religion, or politics of any faction to deprive the others of merchandising furnishment of the things they want. Keep the ammo coming.

Being able to carry a gun is a way of life in America. Don't try and deny us our rights. There's no better high in the world than jerking yourself off and unleashing your load, as you fire bullets into one of Gods lesser creatures, for example a stag or even Afghan !! God bless America.

Idiots will come and go, the 2nd amendment is what keeps America strong. I have two purple hearts and I believe in a Strong America, not a left wing weak America. America should never feel funny about being the best country on earth.

I spend an average of $2-3k a year at your stores. I stopped doing business at Kmart because of that fat lesbian Rosie Odonnel shooting her mouth of about gun rights. I have no problem taking my money to Target if you decide to hide you head in your ass like kmart did. Bye the way, you need to stock more hunting equipment; or come Christmas time Cabella's is going to get my husbands Xmas list. THANKS!!!!

Folks like Michael Moore hire armed bodyguards to protect themselves-and often own guns themselves. In their elitism, they believe that we, the "great unwashed," must be disarmed for their own good. Please place Moore's petition where it belongs-in the dustbin of history.
John A. Wolf, #11310


wake up people. the redneck mecca doesn't give a damn if you live or die. One of their manager trainees actually called me to say I'd broken their "distribution of literature policy" because I handed a business card to one of their employees. I haven't shopped there since. I suggest you follow this advice: "If Wal-Mart comes to your town, kill it"(http://proliberty.com/observer/20021009.htm) and then go here: http://www.walmartdayofaction.com/ and here to find out how their shysters operate: "The Wal-Mart Menace" (http://www.clevescene.com/issues/2002-09-04/feature.html/1/index.html)

As a gun owner, I feel that Wal-Mart shouldn't give in to pressures from anti-gun lobbyists. I have bought several firearms from Wal-amrt, all in great or new condition, and make several trips there a week to buy ammunition. I have seen first-hand what anti-gun lobbyists have accomplished: by disarming those who would better protect themselves with a sidearm, my brother had been shot while a robbery was being commited in his home. The only reason he couldn't protect himself was those lobbyists, that "everyone" trusts, had instituted a law requiring locks on firearms. He didn't die, but the lesson still remains: take the guns away from law-abiding citizens, and the lawless will have more and more power, simply because they will have any firearm they please. But stopping the sale of firearms and ammunition in your stores, you effectively take away the right for thousands to protect themselves.
Thomas Moore, #5407


Let's not forget all of those who have gave their lives defending this great country and our freedoms. Trying to control ammunition/gun sales, religion or anything our Constitutuion stands for is of great disrespect to our nations founding principals and rights as Americans.

As a peace officer, I uphold the 2nd Amendment because without it, criminals will rule!

(In response to Michael Moore and his "Bowling for Columbine)Oh, Please! Yet another hysterical Liberal who thinks that inanimate objects are the source of bad behaviour!

DO NOT GIVE IN TO THE GUN GRABBING BASTARDS!!!

get out of the country if you don't like it
keith swopes, #091


Think this company is on your side?? Look around you, Wal-Mart shoppers. As you stand in line to buy your handgun ammo, underneath imported US flags manufactured by Chinese slave labor, surrounded by aisles of substandard imported goods produced by Communist China, think of all the American jobs which have disappeared as a result of Wal-Mart's anti-American business practices. THE VAST MAJORITY OF WAL-MART'S MERCHANDISE IS PRODUCED BY COMMUNIST SLAVE LABOR!! Let them ban the ammo. It will simply provide me with yet another reason to boycott Wal-Mart. Don't spend a dime with this Commie-loving organization!
Martin H. Smith, Jr., #2788


When your first store opened in my area a couple of years ago I was thrilled to see a beautiful display of firearms, right out there for everybody to see! Last year I shifted thousands of dollars of spending from Costco to Sam's Club because of Costco's politcal stance against firearms rights. Please don't drive me away from Sam's and Wal-Mart!

The rhetoric of the liberal anti-gun left would blame the death and destruction on the canisters of gas used in Auschwitz, Bergen Belsen, and Dachau, but would let the German Nazi war machine off scott free. It was the otherwise inert can of Zyclon-B that killed those 11 million Jews and sympathizers and dissidents against the Reich, not the German people too blind to see the error of their Governments ways and just "followed orders". Of course, we must remember, that most, but not all, leftist liberals aren't dealing with reality on most days. Adieu.

35,000 fire arm related deaths in the US each year - how on god's earth are we expected to maintain this standard if we can't even get any ammunition at our local Wal-Mart store!!

0h30m w/Photoshop, by Paul Ford. It's immediately clear to me now that I'm writing again that I need to come up with some new forms in order to have fun here—so that I can get a rhythm and know what I'm doing. One thing that works for me are time limits; pencils up, pencils down. So: Fridays, write for 30 minutes; edit for 20 minutes max; and go whip up some images if necessary, like the big crappy hand below that's all meaningful and evocative because it's retro and zoomed-in. Post it, and leave it alone. Can I do that every Friday? Yes! Will I? Maybe! But I crave that simple continuity. For today, for absolutely no reason other than that it came unbidden into my brain, the subject will be Photoshop. (Do we have a process? We have a process. It is 11:39 and...) (May 13)
