Walmart, the largest U.S. retailer, joined Dick’s Sporting Goods in raising the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 after the massacre at a Florida high school that has reopened a fierce debate over gun control in America.
Walmart said that “in light of recent events” it was raising the age for purchasers of firearms and ammunition to 21 from 18. The retailer is also was removing items from its website that resemble assault rifles, including non-lethal airsoft guns and toys.Walmart stopped selling assault firearms and accessories in 2015 and only sells handguns in Alaska, Reuters reports.
Breitbart reports that Dick’s Sporting Goods announced their decision to stop selling all “assault-style” weapons in their stores and banning sales to anyone under 21.
A corporate statement was sent in response to the teen-aged gun control activists after the Parkland high school shooting.
We implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations:
- Ban assault-style firearms
- Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21
- Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks
- Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law
- Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms
- Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks
The insanity continues as companies cave to the anti-gun agenda and politicians cowardly hide from the 2nd amendment.
Mainstream media has spread the term “assault weapon” like a wildfire and along with the anti-gun groups, they have twisted the facts to scare the sheep into accepting Marxism and losing freedoms and rights.
The term “assault weapon” is NOT a real firearm and is honestly a ghost term meant to scare and intimidate.
ASSAULT – A physical attack: IE make a physical attack on
WEAPON – a means of gaining an advantage or defending oneself in a conflict or contest: Something designed or used for inflicting bodily harm or physical damage.
The rhetoric is concentrated, for now, on the AR15 platform, with the sheep and snakes saying that “AR” stands for “Assault Rifle” and that it is THE cause of mass shooting events in the United States.
Again, another blatant lie and psyop used on the sheep and the anti-gun groups have used it to get their fire started and it is WORKING!
“AR” stands for Armalite Rifle, which is the company that was Founded in 1954 by Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation, Armalite is best known as the originator of the AR-10™ and AR-15 platform firearms. Today, Armalite is owned by Strategic Armory Corps.
Blunt Truth is that all an Armalite Rifle is, is a firearm platform that is multi-functional and has a variety of “furniture” that can be changed to suit ones personal choice, everything from color to accessories. It is NOT out there in the world committing assaults on innocent victims with some agenda to take over the planet and rule over its “slaves”, that’s the Democrats.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
What “We The People” are witnessing in the United States is a complete attack on the 2nd Amendment and the Bill of Rights.
In the United States the LEGAL age set by the federal government via ATF (Alcohol Tobacco Firearm Bureau) for rifles and shotguns is 18 and for handguns, it is 21.
Now that the snakes have slithered through the doors, companies are changing their laws to 21 to purchase ANY firearm in the United States
We cannot sit idle and continue to be tread on by these treasonous groups and their agendas, the time has come to get off the couch and unite as a collective voice that thunders loudly, “WE WILL NOT ALLOW OUR FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS TO BE ABOLISHED”
Phone calls to your local Sheriff Departments, politicians and local companies, question them on their belief in freedoms and the Bill of Rights.
Send letters not just supporting your rights but demanding that your rights and freedoms stay protected and SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED UPON.
As this wildfire continues we will see more companies and politicians cave to these pathetic agendas and lies over firearms.
President Trump needs to lace up and PROTECT AND SERVE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES AND OUR FREEDOMS.
