Walmart buckles, will attend WH gun control meeting, implement gun control ‘code’

Following the Newtown, Conn., shooting, Walmart, the country’s largest gun retailer, pulled an online gun ad but did not halt firearm sales. After initially declining the White House’s invitation, Walmart representatives will be meeting tomorrow with Vice President Joe Biden’s gun control task force.

And what’s more, Walmart has teamed up with Mayors Against Illegal Guns and will adopt the “Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership.”

Indeed. Some mom-and-pop gun shops will likely not be able to afford to comply with the regulations spelled out in the agreement.

Gun rights advocates are less than pleased:

Meanwhile, Biden is threatening an anti-gun executive order:

It will certainly be interesting to see what comes out of tomorrow’s meeting, but one thing’s for sure: Walmart aligning itself with President Obama and gun control zealots isn’t likely to win over gun owners.
