Texas gun range tags Walmart in posts promoting its dispensers that sell bullets by the pound



A gun range in Fort Worth, Texas, has introduced an "ammo bar" to sell bullets by the pound, as a counter to Walmart's decision to no longer sell certain types of ammunition.

What did Walmart say?

Following the massacre at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, on Aug. 3 that left 22 people dead, and 24 others wounded, Walmart decided to take action on a corporate level. While it will still sell ammunition specifically related to hunting, it announced that its stores would no longer sell "short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber that, while commonly used in some hunting rifles, can also be used in large capacity clips on military-style weapons" or ammunition for handguns.

In addition, it requested that customers refrain from carrying their guns inside Walmart, although it stopped short of banning weapons in its stores altogether. It is not clear if anyone was carrying a weapon in the El Paso Walmart during the massacre — 35.7 percent of Texans own a gun, according to the Dallas Morning News, and a spokesman for the El Paso police said that roughly 3,000 customers were in the store at the time — but what is certain is that nobody inside the store successfully confronted the gunman.
The alleged gunman, who said he was targeting Mexicans, was eventually captured by police.

What about this gun range?

"Walmart doesn't want to sell you handgun ammo," the Alpine Shooting Range posted on Facebook on Sept. 4, "at Alpine we are selling it by the pound."

The company began selling bullets by the pound in July, but business took off after it targeted Walmart on social media in early September. Alpine Shooting Range owner David Smith told TheBlaze that the response to the social media campaign had been "overwhelming and overwhelmingly positive."

Smith said that in one instance, a customer had claimed to have visited the range with his family from more than 200 miles away after seeing one of these social media posts.

Another photo posted on Facebook shows a line of dispensers filled with bullets.

"Customers are loving the new ammo bar!" another Facebook post by the range from Sept. 6 read.

The sale of ammo will only increase as more retail organizations march to the wishes of the anti gunners. Lost profits will be the tune of the day for them. We'll need something to use in all these new weapons being purchased lately (see below) and there are apparently plenty of ammo vendors willing to take our money:

Gun background checks hit record, stocks in focus

The NRA slams Walmart’s decision to limit gun and ammo sales
Fox Business Briefs: The gun rights group released a statement saying “Walmart’s actions will not make us any safer.”

Firearm-related stocks are back in focus after background checks hit a new record in August rising 15.5 percent, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
Companies including Sturm Ruger, American Outdoor Brands and Vista Outdoors are attracting fresh investor attention.

August saw 2,341,363 checks conducted through the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Instant Criminal Background Check System, according to NSSF. That's an unadjusted figure that does not account for gun permit checks and rechecks by numerous states who use the system. The number of checks is a big leap from August 2018, which saw an unadjusted number of 2,026,309 checks.

Is this not the epitome of Americanism and Liberty?

Tyrannical elements dictate by fiat that which I cannot have, and thus I only want more of it.

In this case, guns and ammo.

And it's been that way since 2008. The NUMBERS just keep rising. Used to be that we thought that ONE MILLION firearms purchased as confirmed by NICS (not including multi firearm purchase) was a HUGE NUMBER. Now it's approaching FOUR MILLION FIREARMS A MONTH. Kindly tell me that folks IN THE US don't know what's about happen.


At then end of the video they discuss the sales of ammo. BILLIONS of rounds have been sold monthly since 2008...

add that to the over 400 million firearms in private hands??? Gonna be ugly
