|DICK, after 24 people were killed in one week at two mass shootings in a Walmart, you would think the retail giant would do something about it. |
You would think wrong.
Instead of stopping the sale of guns, Walmart has decided to stop the display of violent video games—parroting the outrageous talking points of Republicans politicians.
Outrageous. Sign the petition to Walmart: Stop selling guns & ammunition immediately.

Violent video games are not the cause of mass shootings. Otherwise, countries like Japan and South Korea—where violent video games are the norm—would have an epidemic of gun violence. But they do not because, unlike the United States, they heavily regulate guns.
Momentum is building against Walmart. The American Federation of Teachers is urging its members not to shop at Walmart, and some presidential candidates have joined the fray.
Walmart has taken action in the past after mass shootings, such as banning assault rifles in 2015—and raising the age of buying ammo from 18 to 21 after the Parkland shooting. Given that another heavily armed man walked into a Walmart mere days after the latest mass shootings (alarming other customers), you would think they should be taking action now.

Our message to Walmart:
Stop selling guns and ammunition immediately. Just refusing to sell assault rifles and raising the minimum purchasing age is not enough to address our national gun violence crisis.
