Left vs. Right Bias: How we rate the bias of media sources
I am grateful to see that Walmart is taking action when our GOP controlled government will not. I will once again shop at Walmart to show my support of this action.
I will be shopping at Walmart again for their courageous stand against those in favor of unrestricted distribution of an instrument whose sole purpose is to kill. Apparently the 2nd amendment was intended by our one-shot-at-a-time musket bearing forefathers to encourage all manner of death dealing firearms that they could have never foreseen. The NRA’s sole purpose to keep a convenient means of violent death readily accessible to everyone, and many times over. Thank you Walmart for putting the lives of your customers ahead of their dollars!
