UPDATE: House Bill Would Ban All Internet Ammunition Sales
by Seton Motley, Breitbart:
In their latest rush to further emasculate the Second Amendment, many on the Left are taking aim at the Internet.
Of course, illegal online sales of weapons and ammunition should be stopped–though the practice isn’t nearly as prevalent as the left would have you believe.
But progressives are also looking to ban legal online sales through a bevy of new gun control resolutions, including H.R. 142, which “would ban Internet or mail order ammunition purchases.”
Meanwhile, the state of New York just passed a ban on Internet “assault weapon” sales. Progressives act as though the move to end all online weapons transactions is just that simple–wave a gavel, pass a law, and it’s done. Just like with guns themselves–declare a gun-free school zone, and all schools will be gun-free.

I do not have a link as of yet but here is what I have found out…
Stopped by my local Wal Mart this morning. They are out of almost every kind of ammo.
I asked to talk to the person in charge of ordering to see if they had any information on this subject.
The manager I talked to said they had not heard anything…BUT.
She tried to order some .223 as I was standing there. She said the order was being rejected by the corporate office. Said she had never had that happen.
She called corporate as I was standing there.
And was told this. “As of right now Wal Mart is not going to be making any new orders of ammo because of the upcoming decision on the second amendment”. Said, “As of right now we are unsure of what new legislation might be coming, and because of this, we are suspending new orders. We will continue to sell what is already in stock in stores and at our distribution centers, but any new orders will not be shipped until the issue is resolved”.
So after they run out, there will be no restocking until Obama makes his decision…Hows that change working out for you now?
As I said, I dont have a link, but you can call Wal Mart headquarters at 1-800-925-6278 for yourself and ask. After the answer press 2 then 1 then 1 again and wait to talk to a rep. I just did this myself and was told the same thing.
Something must have changed at the meeting they had on Thursday.
Guess we will have to wait and see what Obama has in store for us next.
Guys, I am not making this up…Call and find out for yourself.
Home – Audio Blogs > WalMart Federal Gun Control
I just recorded the audio to me calling the corporation and this is all too real. It all comes back to “we have to wait for the President to revise the new law for the Federal Gun Control Act. Then we will change our policy”. – sonarx
Sen. Charles Schumer Ask Wal-Mart And Sports Authority To Suspend ‘Assault Rifles’ Sales
Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation.
Hello, my name is Kory Lundberg with Walmart’s media relations team. Who can I speak with about this story on your site: investmentwatchblog.
com/breaking-confirmed-wal- mart-is-not-going-to-order- any-more-ammo/?This story is not accurate and I would like to talk to somebody about having it corrected.Thank you,kory
We can’t verify the authenticity of the recording on your site, but I can tell you this information is inaccurate. We continue to serve our customers and haven’t made any changes to our overall policies for the sale of ammunition in our stores.
I just received more confirmation today regarding this issue. Here is what he said
“I called Walmart Customer Service about an hour ago to ask them myself…It’s true. They are not sending any more ammo to any stores pending the White House’s decision re: gun control and the 2nd amendment. Straight out of the customer service rep’s mouth. She said that Walmart Corporate and the White House have been in talks and the decision would be posted at corporate.walmart.com by next week….”
“Wal Mart and Big 5 are not restocking here in California. This is fact but I would love to see more panic buying.It sends a clear messag”
Multiple people are now confirming that the managers at their local Wal-Marts have said they’re getting notices that all future ammo orders will be rejected.
Not sure of the reason yet…could be supply or something to do with the Biden meeting the other day.
Joe Biden Meeting With Video Game Industry On Guns
Nationwide ammo shortage so severe that even cops can’t buy bullets; AMMO RATIONING IMMINENT!!!
So was this the reason for Homeland Security buying up billions of rounds? Could THEY be part the actual cause of the shortage? Or is it only the citizens?… I think we all know the answer…
…Thanks to outrageous Sandy Hook fear mongering by the mainstream media and political operatives like Feinstein, Obama, Cuomo and others, the American people have been rushing out to buy up every bullet, every rifle, every handgun and very nearly every gun-related product in the country. This is all because people like Biden, Obama and Feinstein are openly declaring war on the Second Amendment and threatening to outlaw or restrict firearms, magazines and ammunition.
…feds will have a strong ammunition advantage over local cops and sheriffs, since the U.S. federal government has been stockpiling 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition domestically, right here in the United States.
Why does this matter? Here’s why:
…It will ultimately be YOUR ammo that will be needed to defend states against an anti-America, anti-Constitution federal tyranny that attempts to invade and overrun states. The People, of course, have always been the common defense against tyranny. In the Constitution, this is referred to as the militia.
It’s a good thing the citizens of America purchase over 1 billion rounds of ammo in the last month, as they may very well become the source of ammo for a common defense against domestic enemies of America.
Latest Development: Obama Says Some Gun Control Measures ‘I Can Accomplish Through Executive Action’
“My understanding is the vice president’s going to provide a range of steps that we can take to reduce gun violence,” said Obama. “Some of them will require legislation, some of them I can accomplish through executive action. And so I will be reviewing those today, and as I said, I will speak in more detail to what we’re going to go ahead and propose later in the week. But I’m confident that there are some steps that we can take that don’t require legislation and that are within my authority as president, and where you get a step that, has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it.”
CONGRESSMAN WARNS OF IMPEACHMENT OVER ‘EXECUTIVE ORDERS’ ON GUNS
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.”
White House readies 19 executive orders on guns
The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group of sympathetic House Democrats on the road ahead in the latest White House outreach to invested groups.

Report: Walmart Forbids New Ammunition Orders
Store managers told they cannot order more bullets until further notice
According to some customers, Walmart has forbidden store managers from re-ordering ammunition inventory until further notice, raising fears that the Obama administration’s gun control agenda is already being enacted via the back door.
On Sunday, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer demanded that gun retailers like Walmart and Sports Authority, “Suspend sales of modern assault-style weapons until Congress is able to fully consider and vote on legislation to curb gun violence.”
“If Congress passes measures to reduce availability of these weapons, those efforts could be undermined by the purchase of thousands of weapons before then,” he added.
Reports from customers attempting to purchase ammunition in Walmart stores suggest that major retailers could already be strangling the supply of ammo in response to government pressure following the Sandy Hook massacre.
A message posted on the DailySheeple website reads, “I’ve read various postings on message boards claiming local Wal-Mart managers told customers they are no longer permitted to reorder ammo inventory. I can confirm this is true.
I went to Wal-Mart today in our town to buy ammo. The case was almost empty. I asked the store manager when new supplies will arrive.
He said, “Corporate headquarters notified all local managers that we can not order any more ammo until further notice.”
Do Wal-Mart executives know that Piers Morgan doesn’t shop at Wal-Mart, but millions of middle class American families are the source of their wealth? What happens to Wal-Mart’s earnings if Middle Class America boycotts Wal-Mart for caving in to Obama?
The notion that such a policy could have been put in place in plausible given that both Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods suspended sales of some semi-automatic rifles following the Newtown school shooting.
More confirmation keep coming in:
Report: Walmart Forbids Store Managers From Ordering More Ammunition
As gun and ammunition sales across the United States skyrocket and store shelves are emptied of just about anything related to weapons and accessories that may soon be banned by the Federal Government, some of America’s largest and most well known corporations are starting to take sides.
Reports have been streaming in over the last few weeks indicating that retail giant Walmart may be standingagainst the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and that their corporate headquarters has taken steps to restrict the availability of ammunition.
The following is an alert sent by a reader to SteveQuayle.com:
I’ve read various postings on message boards claiming local Wal-Mart managers told customers they are no longer permitted to reorder ammo inventory. I can confirm this is true.
Official: White House To Announce Bullet Control!!!
President Obama will unveil a sweeping set of gun-control proposals at midday Wednesday, including an assault weapons ban, universal background checks and limits on the number of bullets magazines can hold, according to sources familiar with the plans.
The announcement, to be delivered at the White House, is also expected to include a slate of up to 19 executive actions that the Obama administration can take on its own to attempt to limit gun violence. The White House has invited key lawmakers as well as gun-control advocates to appear at Wednesday’s policy rollout, according to two officials who have been invited to the event.
