Wal-Mart Agrees To Gun-Retailing Restrictions

Wal-Mart has agreed to adopt a 10-point retailing system pushed by the anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Wal-Mart, the largest seller of firearms in the nation, cooperated in the drafting of and adopted what the Mayors Against Illegal Guns group calls the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership.

The Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership, created by Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Wal-Mart, is a set of policies that will be implemented over time that includes video recording of sales, rigid controls on inventory, checks that gun purchasers are not misrepresenting themselves and the development of a first-of-its kind computerized crime gun trace log for retailers.

The new crime gun trace log will flag purchases by customers who have previously bought guns later recovered in crimes.

Wal-Mart will implement the 10-point code at its stores where firearms are sold. The announcement was made April 15 at the Mayors Against Illegal Guns National Summit, held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C.

"We know the ways that guns can end up being used in crimes. Now a responsible and innovative company has stood up with our over-300 member coalition of mayors to strengthen their sales practices to keep guns out of the hands of criminals," said New York City Mayor and coalition co-chair Michael R. Bloomberg. "I've always believed in leading by example, and Wal-Mart has again demonstrated why it's a great American company. The Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership makes good sense - it will have no impact on a well-intentioned and law-abiding gun buyer - but will help keep Americans safer."

"Wal-Mart currently uses a strong point of sale system that allows us to serve the many hunters and outdoorsmen who've made us their retailer of choice, while also ensuring the responsible sale of firearms," said JP Suarez, senior vice president and chief compliance officer, Wal-Mart. "This code is a way for us to fine tune the things we're already doing and further strengthen our standards. We hope other retailers will join us in adopting the code."

"Partnerships like this one emphasize our mission to keep illegal guns off our streets, and reinforces that we are not cracking down on legal gun owners and the Second Amendment," said Boston Mayor and coalition co-chair Thomas M. Menino. "This is about public safety and I want to thank Wal-Mart for taking responsibility and being a leader in this area. This code of contact will have no impact on the rights of responsible gun owners, but will help mayors and our law enforcement stop the proliferation of illegal guns."

According to the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), 46% of its criminal gun trafficking investigations involved straw purchasers, where someone who is not legally allowed to purchase a firearm does so through the use of a proxy, known as a straw buyer. Examples of the provisions in the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership intended to deter and stop illegal purchasers are videotaped sales, increased monitoring of fake IDs, the crime gun trace log, and increased training for employees to spot illegal purchases.

Additionally, the inventory controls and increased physical security for firearms in the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership are intended to stem lost and stolen guns, which ATF reports often make their way into the illegal market.

Elements of the 10 points of the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership include videotaping the point of sale for all firearms transactions; a computerized crime gun trace log and alert system, and employee background checks.

All firearm retaiers already have to keep a log and almost if not all of your sporting ggods stores, IE Gander Mountain, Acadamy, etc are video taping all purchases already. Ditto for your pawn shops. Big Brother has been watching for a long time guys, they are just now getting around to telling you about it because WW is so big it can't be hidden any longer. Anyone who thinks this is the land of the "FREE" is in for a rude awakening.
Stock up and practice practice practice, and I don't just mean shooting. Practice your fieldcraft and camo, teach those without Military Experience the basics of cover & concealment and basic patrol techniques, overwatch/travelling overwatch, tripwires etc..
QCB and long range accurate shooting. The one who can take a deer @ 500 yards may be the only one who eats in the not so distant future, he should also be able to grow his own peas and corn. Thank God and my folks I grw up in the country.

Prior to contacting WalMart I would strongly advise that you read and understand their "privacy" policy as they explicitly state that by contacting them you give them the right to collect and share your information with anyone they deem to be of interest. I think the smartest contact might be with your dollars. As in take them somewhere that recgonizes all of our rights that are contained in the Bill of Rights and that they don't get to pick and choose.

Don't know about the rest of the country but WallyWorld has completely caved in to the gun-control nuts here in Houston and prety much all of East Texas... They simply no longer sell firearms of any kind; long guns included. Nowhere in any Houston area Walmart nor anywhere else in East Texas can you buy a gun. Folks, this is the middle of whitetail country we're talking about. Gotta be a major financial hit to stop selling firearms entirely. Someone has the Walmart people running scared!

It is a sure sign of incompetence and stupidity when a government (local or federal) demands that a retailer take on a role of investigator which has neither the power nor the authority to act. There should be three questions asked by all of us when it comes to investigating illegal purchases: 1- If BATFE knows that "46% of its criminal gun trafficking investigations involved straw purchasers," why are we not seeing more arrests of the straw purchasers and any FFL dealers that conducted the transactions(I'm sure the number of dealers involved is quite small- it'd be like robbing a bank and leaving their ID on the counter)? 2- Why does the BATFE have the lowest conviction rate of all federal agencies (should we be more selective in our BATFE agents)? 3- If the BATFE is in charges of investigating firearms transactions and use, shouldn't they be the ones conducting the Criminal Background Checks required for purchase, and not the FBI? Perhaps the reason the liberals are so eager to make the lives of law-abiding gun owners so difficult is to avoid admitting that the government needs reorganizing/restructuring/overhaul, so that it can be more effective in apprehending and convicting those that are actually responsible for the crimes. On a side note- does anyone know what Mayor Bloomberg did with all those guns he had private investigators buy in the last two years? I'm not sure about the law on this one, but if he paid to have non-law enforcement persons (having no power, authority , or direction from an agency with power and authority) to make straw purchases, doesn't that make him and the private investigators criminal conspirators (especially if he did not turn the firearms over to proper authorities)?

Well said Jeffwas. Along with your final draft please mention again the importance of each of us to personalize the letter with individual thought and resist the temptation of using derogative language. We need to unite in numbers with integrity to accomplish a resolution in this fight.

I forgot to add in my last post that I agree with Jeff R on having as many avenues open as possible. However, we should moderate (i.e. monitor) the content of any avenue we open to ensure we maintain a united front of respectable and justifiable outrage without resorting to name calling, flames, irrational "black helicopter"-type nonsense and other fringe rubbish that could harm or somehow de-legitimize a very noble cause. We have all come across the thoughts of those whose zeal borders on let's just say the somewhat obtuse. Like a judge once said of pornography "I know it when I see it" so I will leave it to Marc R and others who most likely will be the conduit to watch for such stuff. Lastly, we need to suggest that those using our letter add their own thoughts as well to ensure our efforts don't look like just another form letter campaign. The final item needs to be from individual concerned citizens. I see our mission as one of jumpstarting folks who would normally either not get involved or fire off an ill-conceived email.

Marc and Jeffwas:
This is all coming together. It looks like we have begun to organize a plan with meaning and hopefully effective at first strike. Let's see this through as our passion to support our rights under the 2nd amendment. We need to make a direct point that we disagree with ANY infringement "period". If we would become complaisant with this infringement then it would only furthermore open the doors for stronger regulations placing the 2nd amendment as a whole at jeopardy. Let's give it our best!!!

I'd be happy to, if someone can find the right people to send it to, as that will drive the tone of the letter. As I'm currently living in the UK, and Thompson's web access is quite pricey outside the US, I would need someone to get the right contact info. Once I get an idea of who we're "talking" to, I can then draft a copy, and then you all can vet it and then we're good to go. As far as getting the letter copy to everyone, perhaps Marc at STGs.com would be kind enough to provide a link to the copy, saving a lot of multiple posts here. Marc, can you do that?

Sounds like you have been around the block with these types of issues. Would you be willing to write the letter and eclose a copy of all of our comments attached to the article above? We could use your help in making our comments and views visible to the Wal-Mart Executives.

Great points, all. However, the power of email is greatly over-rated, and you will continue to get the canned, non-response response illustrated above in several posts. When I lived in the People's Republic of California, I always wrote letters directly to my various politicians, and surprisingly enough, 8 out of 10 times got a personal response because 1) I took the time to write 2) researched their stand on a particular issue of interest to me, but more importantly, quoted in my letter what they had said that I found worthy enough of a response. For example, I have carried-on a very (at times) contentious letter exchange with Sen. Barbara Boxer over gun laws, and after writing to her for some 10 years before moving to the UK (a whole other world when it comes to personal liberties and gun nonsense…) she now calls me Jeff instead of Mr. W****, and though we continue to agree to disagree, she is gracious, and more importantly, take the time to respond. I do the same with companies over 2nd Amendment-related issues or PC nonsense (funny how the two are so often interwoven...). The local library will have what is called the "Thompson Guide to Corporations" in that you will find the appropriate dept. names to write to, versus the general PR-related black holes common on web sites. Put "Personal" on the letter and most of all, be polite, articulate and stick to one specific point. Remember folks, relationship-management software is very sophisticated and will scan incoming emails for content, and then allocate the appropriate response. I believe anyone taking the time to write to WallyWorld’s head of customer relations will get a more personal answer, at least signed by him/her and then we have a start. Lastly, given the propensity of email, a letter will stand-out like Hillary at a Marine Raider convention…Semper Fi and keep the faith!

Just another prime example of a large corporation bowing to the Liberal Left. That's the end of my business with Walmart. First they stop selling guns in South Florida, now this bullshit that they know does nothing but violate the privacy of law abiding citizens.

I would strongly recommend that all pro-gunners and pro 2nd Amendment people stop doing business with Walmart.

Obviously Walmart has crawled in bed with the Brady bunch. Let's see how much we can reduce their income since they obviously don't care about a very large part of their customers.

So the WM juggernaut moves on. Why is anyone surprised? How many "mom & pop" stores have been run out of business through their shock troop tactics? WM is the world's largest retailer. I hate to pop anyone's balloon, but you need to realize that they don't care one whit about a few thousand people who stop buying from them. Just take comfort in the fact that there have been other "largest retailers" before. The ones who are still around are no longer "largest" anything, and one day WM will be in that same position.

Wal-Mart, "The Great American Company" The same company that dictates to another company what it will pay,not barter, sets the price so low the American Company it is buying from must shut down or send it's manufacturing overseas, or they just end up with the seconds from the manufacturer to sell to the unsuspecting public, is this REALLY a Great American Company? In the past I only bought from WW when seconds would do. I have boycotted Pizza Hut for it's self-defence stance, and I will boycott WW altogether for it's Policies. I say WalMart need to move to China so it can be closer to it's suppliers and be at home with its Dictatorship Ideals.

Wal-mart doesn't sell guns anymor where I live in california, but I would not degrade myself or mark myself with the pitifull politically motived coersion. There are already too many gun controls placed on us californians and this is just another stab at our rights as american citizens. Remember folks, poeple kill poeple: not guns. If this were not true you would have to outlaw driving in cars, drinking alcohal and other miscievious things( AND I DON'T SEE WALMART TAKING BOOOZE OFF THE SHELVES). Wal-mart needs to take a good long look at the 90 million gun owners and ask themsweles if they really want to have them as thier allies or enimies. I personally can say that if ammo ever gets this type of treatment I would become the world's biggist reloader known to man. WM stand up for all of our rights and remember that as one man said that since WM does only sell long guns, we are not in a great deal of danger but there are many more places to shop other than your store. So for the sake of all the people that you upset, I think you may want to reconsider your decision!

Giving this more thought. I am discussing this information with the President of my Local Gun Club. Out of the 800 members we may get 30% to participate in a ban of purchasing anything from WM. Most of these also do their food shopping at WM. Lets do the math....240 members spending $600 month in food and lets say $100 in other merchandise per month. Total spending of $700 month on the average times 240 equals $168,000.00 per month. For one year is $2,016,000.00. Each of them knows at least 2 other people whom will do the same and so on and so on. Wal-Mart Executives, I suggest you stand down with your decision. Don't play retail and politics with the 2nd ammendment. YOU STAND TO LOSE $$$$$$. Others, I suggest you also get your Local Gun Club members involved. Lets make our stand and protect our rights !!!!

Thank you Wal-Mart for being such a gutless, no balls coward and bowing down and kissing the feet of the anti-gun movement. You have always prided yourself as being American. What happened? Americans have always enjoyed the rights granted by the 2nd amendment and now, you have given in to those who wish to take away our rights as American citizens. Shame on you for being such a coward and not standing up for America. You just lost a customer and I will tell everyone I know what you have done (if they don't already know) and I hope you are so very proud of yourself for being such a wuss. Your decision to support the anti-gun movement is just another step towards the downfall of this country. I HOPE YOU ARE PROUD OF YOURSELF COWARD!! Never again will I set foot in one of your stores.

If we want to make an impact other than voicing our strong opinions we need to organize an Anti-WM movement by the numbers. We need to get this message out to the majority. We need to engage the movement of the NRA and FFL Dealers in the Country along with any other affiliates. Can we start by volunteers whom have a way to get this in front of the NRA and volunteers with access to ways we can deliver this information to all FFL Dealers in the country???? The FFL Dealers would be happy to knock out WM with spreading the good word of WM's Political Anti-Gun Movement!!!!

This is a step towards greater gun control. It would be of the interest of the customers whom own guns to ban other purchases from Wal-Mart. If Wal-Mart wants to continue with this and enter Anti-Gun Politics with the Mayors Coalition then let us make the stand as we would with any Political Anti-Gun Views and stand our ground to protect any infringement of the 2nd ammendment. Hit them in the pocket book and ban purchases from Wal-Mart !!!

Why sign up for a permanent gun registry and be kept on videotape, and who knows what else they will do? Best message to send to WM and these mayors is to see WM's sales drop dramatically. I'll take my business elsewhere.

With regard to Marc's comment, I understand your point about the specific "enhancements" BUT, my concern is the direction and method. The tactic used in England and Australia to enact laws that laws ban, limit, restrict, tax or otherwise infringe upon the possession, carry, purchases and sales from lawful gun owners, was to slowly chip away at the rights while "we the people" paid little attention. Marc, I take no issue with you and know we are the same page, but I can't bring myself to give on anything that feels like the subtle and insidious erosion of our rights that could ultimately result in losing our 2nd amendment rights little by little. Bloomburg, Clinton, Obhama, Kerry, Kennedy and their friends have made no bones about their plans to take away our rights as gun owners. I believe we should not make the mistake of thinking that these people are resonable or honest and try to meet them half way. They want to control us completely and I believe have to be dealt with as we would deal with a "bad guy" on the street, giving no quarter and being completely committed to winning the fight, not just surviving.

STG.com's point vis' training and record keeping are certainly valid and I agree. I am more concerned about spurious record keeping under the guise of "the law-abiding need not worry" and other canards fit for sheep. Any kind of video recording or the like also worries me as such mediums can be manipulated and/or hacked with relative ease. In my libertarian utopia, registration means that if I'm on a congressionally/constitutionally-approved "list" in return I can then, upon demonstrating competence, carry a weapon in an unfettered manner as the "State" now knows all it *needs* to, rather than what it *wants* to know. While I realize I'm somewhat preaching to the choir here, STG.com's comments gave me pause for thought as to what constitues "reason" in a less-than perfect world.

The database and video will be hit by the NRA, as they interfere with the State and governmental province of firearm regulation and inter-state commmerce.

In the meantime I suggest you ensure your NRA dues are paid and contact your NRA grass-roots representatives to ensure they are aware of wally world's sinister motives (they can be located via nra.com or nra-ila.org). Once we get a full-court press on I think we'll see some sort of retraction or a re-think by them and other like-minded retailers. In the meantime I agree with Ron - boycott the bast****...

Disgusting. Bloomberg is a self professed gun hater and his group of liberal Mayors are sheep. This has nothing to do with "responsible sale of firearms" but rather a blatant step toward gun control. The danger here is that Bloomberg and his fellow gun grabbers have determined that if they cannot be successful with legislation or the courts, they will resort to making it so difficult to purchase a gun, people will simply give up. The only way to fight this approach is to vote with our dollars. I will not buy anything from Walmart because of their stance on this issue as well as their lack of support for our troops in Iraq. I hope that large number of us will do the same and "vote with our money". This is the only thing that Walmart understands and listens to. There are plenty of alternatives to Walmart and if we make it know that we will faithfully avoid buying from Walmart, maybe we can influence other companies to not align with the hateful Bloomberg crowd. What do you think?

I actually sent an email to Wal-Mart. This is the response I got back. Personally I think they have lost touch with who their customers are and what they want. I'm sure Michael Bloomberg has never stepped foot in a Wal-Mart.

Dear Tim,

Wal-Mart understands its role as a leading, responsible retailer in the U.S. and is making strides to strengthen its already existing security processes to help combat illegal gun activity in the communities we serve. Wal-Mart has a long and proud history of offering the products hunters and outdoorsmen want and need and that will not change.

It is important to note that these procedures should not impede law-abiding citizens from purchasing firearms at our stores that sell them. These processes merely provide us, as a retailer, an additional mechanism to assist law enforcement when illegal activity occurs.

We are hopeful these enhanced processes with help from law enforcement and other retailers committing to do the same can make a positive difference in our communities.

Thank you,
Wal-Mart Customer Relations

I remember when I was working as a Pharmacists assistant when I was 16 at Wally mart. Sam Walton walked in in overalls, plaid checkerd shirt & looked like one of the "good 'ol-boys". No one recognised him or who he was. The Pharmacist was a personal friend & introduced me to him. He was there to get shot shells to go shooting waterfowl later in the day & saw him drive away in an un-special early '80s Ford truck. Nicest guy in the world & I know he would be turning in his grave with his store polices right now.
All Wal mart sells now is long guns, so how many Marlin 60s do you supposed are used in armored truck heists?

Well, considering Wallmart's other "constitutional" policies, and the quality of the firearms they actually sell, can't say I'm surprised or care. I think WM just wants any excuse to get out of the gun business, but can't ignore any place they can make a buck.
