According to White House Insiders, Presidents Obamas new Gun Control Task force is looking to get big businesses like Walmart involved in the Gun Control Fight. The Whitehouse is said to be working on strategies that would allow them to bypass congress; some of these proposals include using WalMart and other gun retailers to self-regulate the industry.
WalMart is one of the leading sellers of firearms and ammunition; for their support, the Obama administration would make them one of the only retailers allowed to legally sell firearms. In my opinion, this is an attempt to push smaller gun shops out of business so that one or two major retailers control the entire industry. Once this happens, the White House will have their back door gun control measures in place, and with one executive order could easily crash the entire industry.
Walmart’s not So Gun Friendly Record.
Back in 2008 Walmart, in partnership with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, rolled out a 10-point agreement to track the sale of firearms. The agreement between WalMart and the group set up a surveillance system that videotaped all gun and ammo purchases at every Walmart in the country. Most people don’t realize that these purchases are stored indefinitely by Walmart.
This should be a huge wake-up call to anyone who values their 2nd amendment rights. In my opinion, this news taken with yesterdays Anti-Gun assault from Bank of America, shows how desperate these anti-gun politicians are becoming. It also shows how their partnership with big business can help them shred the Constitution without ever having to go through Congress again.
