Should Wal-Mart just completely stop selling guns in every state?

Maybe it's just me, but there's something unwholesome about WalMart selling guns. From the info above, it sounds like the store may not want to do the paperwork on these sales anymore either.

If they can't follow the law and have a waiting period or background check, they souldn't be in the business of selling guns. Obviously their employees can't handle it, either.

That is scary. Wal-Mart customers are the last people who should have unfettered access to guns.

they should only stop if they are being that lax in other states as well

Why not? Guns don't kill. Killers kill.

I wish Wal-Mart would go out of business and stop selling anything.

i mean first of all wal-mart buys a lot of their things from sweat shops, that's why they are cheaper, so second the store is already drated up so they might as well sell guns...andy is right

Wal-Mart is a redneck store, and rednecks like guns! Just ask me!

They still sell guns at our Wal-Mart. Not hand guns, but rifles and shot guns. If I had the money, I would buy one from them.
