Walmart Has Bad News For Employees Who Staged Walkout To Protest Gun Sales

Sigh.

Published

With the recent rash of mass shootings that happened last weekend, folks are up in a tizzy, demanding that guns be taken off the streets, which apparently means off of Walmart shelves, as 40 employees from the company recently staged a walkout to protest gun sales.

Unfortunately for these do-gooders and crusaders against the Second Amendment, Walmart has stated it has no plans to change its policies.

The Washington Post reported that the employees walked out of the building and remained outside for 15 minutes. When the employees arrived outside, they reportedly dedicated a moment of silence to the victims of the El Paso mass killing.

Thomas Marshall, an employee at the California office who helped organize the protest, told the Post that he and his co-workers “no longer want to be complicit by working for a company that profits off the sale of firearms.”

Marshall told NBC News that Walmart should listen to its employees to effect positive change in the country.

“We are all concerned employees, and Walmart says it values the outlook of its employees,” Marshall said. “We feel as if we can make a noticeable difference.”

Marshall sent out an email message on the company’s internal message board which could have potentially reached about 20,000 employees. Here’s what it said:

In light of recent events, and in response to Corporate’s inaction, we are organizing a “sick out” general strike to protest Walmart’s profit from the sale of guns.

Walmart is a company that has always placed its associates and customers first, and we have recently made great strides toward fostering a safe, inclusive, and progressive community. Last year, Walmart raised the minimum age to buy a firearm or ammunition from 18 to 21 and removed products resembling assault-style rifles from its inventory. Walmart is still, however, the single largest retailer of firearms in the United States.

We have made great strides already, but now we must organize to shape this company into a place we can all be proud of. As associates, we have the power, ability, and opportunity to change this company for the better.

Randy Hargrove, a spokesman for Walmart, spoke with the Washington Post about the walkout saying, “more effective channels such as email or leadership conversations” are better suited for getting a point across than a walkout.

Marshall stated he’s okay with being booted to the curb over his views, which just goes to show how woefully ignorant folks are about the Second Amendment and a company’s right to sell whatever it wants.

At the end of the day, it’s our God-given right to own firearms that will protect us from those who wish to take our lives, our liberty, or our property. Folks don’t have to like it, but they sure better respect it.

Tone-Deaf Portland Runs Tourism Ad After Riot Police Quit En Masse

If you’re looking for chaos, have we got the vacation spot for you!

For months on end, a never-ending series of protests-turned-riots have plagued the city of Portland, Oregon. Night after night the northwestern locale rages, as protesters march in the street, commit arson, clash with cops, and generally relish in their new role as liberal nuisances to the citizens of the city. Things have gotten so bad, in fact, that a large contingent of the city’s riot police coordinated a mass resignation from that portion of the force. That makes the timing of the city’s latest tourism push all the more asinine. Portland ran a pricy full-page Sunday ad in the New York Times promoting tourism after the Portland police riot squad quit Thursday. “Some of what you’ve heard about Portland is true. Some is not. What matters most is that we’re true to ourselves,” Travel Portland wrote in the ad that could have cost up to $250,000. “You’ve heard a lot about us lately. It’s been a while since you heard from us,” it continues. “After a year of encouraging visitors and locals to support small businesses here and from a distance, it’s time to issue an invitation to come back to Portland,” the ad states. “Two sides to the same coin that keeps landing right on its edge. Anything can happen. We like it this way.” The ad also says “new ideas are welcome” in the city, a place where “you can be yourself.” “This is the kind of place where new ideas are welcome — whether they’re creative, cutting-edge or curious at first glance. You can speak up here. You can be yourself here,” it continues. Of course, the taxpayer money used to procure this ad could have been spent on any number of the projects that would have helped secure the city from these anarchistic rabble-rousers.

Canada Bucks International Trend, Won’t Open Border as Pandemic Fades

Airline industry officials are not happy.

In America and around the world, there is much optimism.  The year-plus reign of the COVID scourge is coming to an end as vaccination and natural antibody rates climb ever higher, and businesses from coast to coast begin to ramp up their capacities. But there are still those out there who are unwilling to admit this very palpable and tangible truth, and who are throttling economic recovery in their reticence. Our northern neighbors just so happen to fit that description. Canada said on Monday it would start cautiously lifting border restrictions for fully vaccinated citizens on July 5 but made clear it would be months before U.S. and other foreign travelers could enter the country. From 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5 (0359 GMT on July 6), those who have received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine will no longer have to spend time in quarantine. The move applies to Canadians and permanent residents. “This is the first phase of our precautionary approach … at this time we are not opening up our borders any further,” said Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Dominic LeBlanc. Ottawa first announced the plan on June 9. LeBlanc told reporters that Ottawa was talking to its domestic and international partners “with the goal of allowing fully vaccinated travelers to enter Canada for non-essential reasons in the months to come.” Canada’s unwillingness to capitulate to the reality of the pandemic’s end has adversely affected the airline industry, and has drawn criticism from American lawmakers who believe that more could be done by our allies to the north in the realm of reopening.
