Walmart to stop selling guns...well, actually no

Walmart has just announced that they will stop selling high-powered rifles in United States. The news obviously comes after the recent school shooting. Sadly enough the decision has really nothing to do with the shooting itself but PR, sadly it's all about the public perception. And it makes sense to stop selling assault rifles only because of that.

However, when it comes to Walmart, is that really something to brag about anyway? Yay! We stopped selling machine guns, but we will keep selling more shotguns and anything else you can think of.

Come to Walmart, we have milk, we have bread, we have cheese, we have Glocks...do you really need to sell guns in a supermarket in the first place? You are still part of the problem.

I guess there are some other countries in the world as well where guns are sold in supermarkets, but that's usually something frowned upon in most countries. As it should be.

Walmart, don't stop selling some guns, stop selling all guns.

He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
