Too Sick To Be Believed

So we were in our local walmart today and in a big endcap *less than 2 weeks after the Sandy Shore massacre* they have a huge display of this http://www.walmart.com/ip/Black-Ops-M4-Diamondback-Air-Soft-Gun/22018424

It's an airsoft ASSAULT RIFLE.

I was in shock, i can't believe anyone is crazy enough to think that sort of display is appropriate right now. So i went onto their website to find out if it was a sick joke but nope, not only are they selling it in stores right now and making a big deal of it, but they also sell REAL assault rifles.

That's right, any yahoo can go to walmart for their military grade assault rifles. 

Sick.

 I don't see the problem.

No one stops selling alcohol after a crash.

 While I agree that assault weapons are over the top, I am 100%  pro-gun ownership---especially now that we are being threatened to having them taken from us. 

All this war on guns just makes me want to run out and buy ourselves a couple.

 Here is another reason I don't shop at Walmart.

They are tasteless, insensitive brain dead jerks.

Walmart's been selling those airsoft rifles all month.  It's part of their holiday gifts, because you know, people might want airsoft accessories for Christmas.

You see no problem with a huge chain store putting up a big display on assault rifles less than 2 weeks after a psycho uses assault rifles to massacre 20 6yr olds?

It would be just as disturbing if there was a huge crash pileup where dozens died, caused by someone drunk on say Corona then suddenly stores had huge happy displays for Corona afterwards.

I don't expect them to stop selling guns, but to put up a huge happy display on the exact same weapon type as was just used to murder a bunch of children is tasteless to say the least, deeply disturbing imo.

Who's threating to take your guns? You should have that person arrested for threatening you that way.

 Read the legislation that is being introduced.  It is scary.  And yes they will be banning weapons and asking for all guns to be registered and gun owners fingerprinted with picture.  hmmm sounds like something they do to criminals.
