Kmart`s Blue Light Turns to Red for Handgun Owners

Friday, June 29, 2001

Kmart, one of the nation`s largest firearm retailers, announced yesterday that it will no longer sell handgun ammunition at its stores. The retailer said this new policy will be implemented over the next 90 days, but the complete phase-out will depend on how long it takes for stores to sell their existing stocks. Kmart has been under pressure from anti-gun extremists to stop selling firearms for some time, and while the company claims it has been reviewing the issue of firearm and ammunition sales for some time, this decision was announced one day after company executives met with "gun control" advocates. It is disappointing to see a company such as Kmart cave-in to pressure from a tiny minority of anti-gun extremists, especially considering this is the same chain that fired Rosie O`Donnell as its spokesman in 1999, shortly after the hypocritical talk show host launched her infamous all-out assault on America`s law-abiding gun owners. But other firearm retailers are likely happy to hear there will be one less business against which they must compete. The nation`s largest retailer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., indicates it has no intention of following Kmart`s lead, and many gun owners are already indicating they will no longer frequent Kmart for any shopping needs because of its decision. If you wish to contact Kmart to comment on this decision, you can call 1-866-KMART 4 U (1-866-562 7848), or you can send e-mail to [email protected].
