After 2 Shootings, Walmart Removes Violent Video Game Displays—Still Selling Firearms

I don’t want to open up a big fucking can of worms here, but seriously Walmart?

Let’s recap the senselessness.

  • July 30, two Walmart employees are shot and killed in Mississippi.
  • August 3, twenty-two people were tragically killed in a mass shooting in at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
  • August 8, some dumb motherfucker strolls into a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri armed with a rifle while donning body armor and military-style clothing.

Walmart has an problem here. So the dumb corporate fucks do the most sensible thing… Take down displays of violent video games, of course.

Many gun control advocates are rallying to get Walmart to at least temporarily stop sales of firearms. I mean what’s worse, a poster of firearms in the electronics section, or actual fucking firearms. Walmart, however, does not agree with this logic, as per spokesman Randy Hargrove:

“There’s been no change in policy,” adding that the retailer has been focused on caring for customers and employees in the El Paso community. “It’s horrible … what’s happened.’’

USA Today

Stopping sales of firearms, even temporarily, will obviously harm Walmart’s bottom line. It’s easier to just go back to the good ole standby that old, out-of-touch, limp dick politicians and corporations have been using for years. Blame the video games.
