Certain bullets are being restricted by Walmart. They're not stopping selling bullets just a certain kind. I am good with that. Most businesses have started or already posted signs in Texas about no open carry allowed. Now when it's a federal disaster relief area and you are asked to evacuate the area you can take your weapons and open carry without a license in Texas as well.

Yeah, my understanding is they are limiting ammo to certain hunting calibers.  I thought I heard this morning they won't be carrying hand gun ammo and ammo for certain rifles that also are used in AR15s and AK47s, as an example.  As I understand it, they are not pulling stuff from shelves, but just won't restock certain ammo once they are out.  That won't take long, though,  because there will likely be a bum rush on ammo speculator/buyers.  In some areas, Wal Mart is the main, if not THE ammo supplier.  Ammo speculators will likely be marking the ammo they by up very significantly for resale.

That's how all those AR-15s and AK-47s were sold though. I remember the run on guns back when Obama got elected. Some gym teacher I worked with by 10 because he was so afraid he wouldn't be able to buy them once Obama was in office. Just making more money for gun manufacturers and the NRA but not really pushing any good long term things through that kind of moderate the risks. 

 

I think the guy who shot up Midland/Odessa ordered his online.

Assuming the seller is doing it legal, you can't just order a firearm online like you can something on Amazon, when buying a gun online.  You have to have it sent to a gun shop or other store with an FFL.  In AZ (can't speak to other states, but I assume most), when you pick up the firearm, they have to do a background check before they will release the firearm.

The silver lining is that this will bring back more business to local gun shops. F*** Walmart anyway.
