It seems these days that mass shootings have become just another headline.
While some politicians (I’m still looking at you, Mitch McConnell) refuse to do anything, the decision makers at Walmart have made an important step in the right direction.
As of yesterday, Walmart will be drastically reducing the ammunition for assault style rifles that in the past, customers have been able to purchase freely.
If I am to be honest here, I would prefer if they stopped selling guns and ammunition all together. However, the fact that they will be reducing their ammunition sales is not to be overlooked.
I have nothing against guns or the Second Amendment. If someone wants to buy guns because they hunt as a hobby or let off steam by going to a gun range, that is their business. But what is my business (and the business of every American) is the fact that too many of our citizens have been killed by mass shootings.
Back in 1989, the late President Ronald Reagan (R-California) made a statement about guns which I believe still rings true today.
If only the current Republican party would heed his words.
