A new one went up near me and opened recently. Went inside to the sporting goods area.. No firearms for sale! I asked the guy at the counter and he said the local police dept said they were prohibited by local statute from selling firearms?

Sounds like BS to me.. What say you?

Local government may require special permits or something?

Other then that... don't know.

They may be waiting for their FFL to come back. They don't always get that done before the store opens. The clerk is probably just an idiot

When I saw the thread I thought someone actually took there cat to Wal Mart.

Could be a local ordinance; one place in PA I frequent does not allow firearms to be sold from a store front, only from the home.

Could be they are waiting for their FFL to come back. Sometimes the legal and federal red tape is slower than construction.

Maybe Wal-Mart forgot to get the FFL until the store was almost complete.

The only Wal-Mart's I have ever been in that didn't sell guns were in NJ. Too much of a hassel to deal with NJ's archaic gun laws I guess.

Speak to the store manager , OR call the local P.D. Better chance of finding out the real scoop there than here .
