Wal-mart is now saying there was no plan to discriminate against 18 & 19 year old long gun buyers. That their mandatory safety classes for the 18 & 19 year olds was voluntary, not mandatory. Well according to us, & backed up by news from the NRA, we find Wal-mart's so-called voluntary safety class was not voluntary after all. News at the "blue star" icon at: National CCW Reciprocity Foundation http://www.NationalCCW.com (Error in the story: "Institute on Legislative Action" should read "Institute for Legislative Action". Thank you.)

Still having problems with posting a URL link I see. Do you not read these responses or are you just pigheaded?

NationalCCW, I had a run-in at a local Wal-Mart a few months back. I went to purchase some minor reloading equipment (dies, case prep stuff) and when I went to check out, a warning buzzer went off. The cashier (pimply-faced teeny-bopper girl) asked to see my driver's license, in order to verify that I was over 18. Not that it was going to make any difference, but I proceeded to educate the cashier and those waiting in line behind me about Federal and State firearms laws. (Being an FFL and an LEO, I felt that I knew at least a little on the subject). I explained that there are NO laws restricting the sales of reloading components, and that in my opinion, Wal-Mart was caving in to political pressure. Such a business as that is not deserving of my money, so I left the entire cart of groceries and sundries, along with the reloading parts, and left the store. It REALLY pissed off my wife (she's not very confrontational!), but I think people should take the opportunity when it arises to make a point. We have to let these businesses know they're losing our support and $$$.
