Several Walmart stores in the St. Louis area have pulled ammunition from the shelves following recent protests. It wasn’t because of the St. Louis County police officer who carried a shotgun during a traffic stop involving Ferguson protesters. It wasn’t because of police shootings, or because of gun violence, but because of Ferguson protesters.

[su_center_ad]Two St. Louis County Walmart stores where police-shooting protesters disrupted business earlier this week have removed ammunition from their shelves.

KMOV reports:

Monday night, demonstrators made their way into Walmart locations in Maplewood, Ferguson and Bridgeton, forcing the stores to close while several arrests were made.

On Wednesday afternoon, the empty shelves at Maplewood looked like there had been a mass purchase of ammunition. But according to an employee, it was locked up in the back.
“I can see why they would think that would be a concern if someone did break in in mass and loot the place and steal ammo,” said shopper Tim Casey.

There were no reports of looting on Monday, but Walmart said it was a taking a precaution.
“If there is a history of violence and looting and other activity that are going on or things that are putting associates and customers at risk—then yes, decisions can be made based on those circumstances,said Walmart spokesperson Brian Nick.

Why aren’t Open Carry activists fighting for Ferguson residents’ right to arm themselves?

    What do you expect? Looting and rioting tends to be bad for business.

    • Anomaly 100 October 17th, 2014 at 8:41 am

      One would think that marching through family friendly businesses with long guns strapped to your back would be really bad for business.

      • Pedro October 17th, 2014 at 8:46 am

        Apparently it’s not. Americans exercising their natural, civil, and constitutionally protected rights is a good thing. Looters tend not to have long guns on their backs.

        • Anomaly 100 October 17th, 2014 at 8:49 am

          The protesters are exercising their rights to free speech. Stop skipping over the First Amendment while only acknowledging the Second.

          By the way, Walmart admitted to making an error. The ammo is back on the shelves.

            Most of these 2nd amendment morons don’t even realize there are other amendments.
            And what exactly is a “natural” right anyway?

          • Anomaly 100 October 17th, 2014 at 9:15 am

            Apparently ‘natural’ only refers to the Second Amendment for white people.

          • Jimmy Smith October 17th, 2014 at 9:43 am

            I wonder what happened the last time we had a large number of black people exercising their “natural, civil and constitutionally protected right” to open carry …

          • Anomaly 100 October 17th, 2014 at 9:47 am

            I wrote something about that, too. If black people in concert all bought firearms on the same day, I’ll bet you that common sense gun laws would suddenly become a thing.

          • M D Reese October 17th, 2014 at 11:48 am

            They don’t even acknowledge the first half of the second Amendment.

          • fahvel October 17th, 2014 at 12:48 pm

            to urinate silly!

          • Jimmy Smith October 17th, 2014 at 9:13 pm

            Do they do that in their pants after seeing a scary black man before or after they give him their gun?

        • OldLefty October 17th, 2014 at 8:55 am

          That’s EXACTLY why the black people are arming themselves.

        • raincheck October 17th, 2014 at 11:04 am

          Apparently it is… Most of these places where these idiots have shown up, began banning them, because it upset too many customers…YFM

        • fahvel October 17th, 2014 at 12:47 pm

          you sound like a fool to the world out here.

        • tracey marie October 17th, 2014 at 2:36 pm

          like voting, choice for women, and equality under the law?

      • Guest October 17th, 2014 at 7:29 pm

        Why do Right Wing militias and gun nuts do it all the time? You must have seen their stunts at Starbucks or Target.

  2. KB723 October 17th, 2014 at 9:01 am

    Did they hide the i-pads as well???

  3. Suzanne McFly October 17th, 2014 at 9:21 am

    This is as predictable as a Christian DJ tea party affiliate who molests young children.

  4. NW10 October 17th, 2014 at 9:21 am

    Most of the looters from the protests back in August were from out of state, and had nothing to do with the Ferguson protesters. It actually got to the point where the Bloods and Crips of Ferguson actively worked together to stop the looters. Why won’t the media DO THEIR DAMNED JOBS and report those facts?

    • Teddy Simon October 17th, 2014 at 1:56 pm

      Why don’t you prove these facts

      • Anomaly 100 October 17th, 2014 at 3:15 pm

        The police said so themselves. Google, it’s a thing.

    • rejectrepublicanlies October 17th, 2014 at 7:22 pm

      Yeah, all those protesters were from outside of Ferguson, but they were still Americans, right? Does the Tea Party check for out-of-state IDS or plates at their rallies or protests? Most of the protesters were from Missouri, but even if they weren’t, the First Amendment is not relegated to zip codes. It’s funny how you folks on the Right are for the First and Second Amendment, but not when it applies to people you dislike.

  5. Leftside_Annie October 17th, 2014 at 10:09 am

    “Open Carry” doesn’t apply to black people. White folks are “defending freedom,” but those blacks are just thugs and looters. Mmm-hmmm. That’s a #FAIL

    • rejectrepublicanlies October 17th, 2014 at 7:20 pm

      Conceal Carry is legal in Missouri, but I don’t believe Open Carry is. I could be wrong.

  6. searambler October 17th, 2014 at 10:24 am

    Aye, but the problem is, the police department doesn’t shop there anyway…..

  7. Denise October 17th, 2014 at 11:42 am

    it’s racist. they are not removing the bullets from wal-mart from the oct members, whose rifles are loaded. they should hire attorneys and sue for discrimination.

  8. M D Reese October 17th, 2014 at 11:46 am

    So now you have to be white to buy ammo?

    • rejectrepublicanlies October 17th, 2014 at 7:25 pm

      They won’t answer the question because, yes, that’s the answer.

  9. fahvel October 17th, 2014 at 12:46 pm

    very misleading headline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even liberals pander I suppose.

    • tracey marie October 17th, 2014 at 2:13 pm

      How so, the store stated they feared the protesters would loot and create havoc.

  10. BDRogers22 October 17th, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    Search a little and you will find the photo’s of the store owners/employees/friends out in front of their stores with rifles protecting their property. While other stores burned or were looted, theirs were not.

    • tracey marie October 17th, 2014 at 2:10 pm

      spin it stormfront

  11. tracey marie October 17th, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    OT but the racist killer white guy who shot into a SUV playing loud music has just been sentenced to life in prison. Justice is served

  12. Mr Ghue October 17th, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    At least someone out there has a lick of common sense.

  13. rejectrepublicanlies October 17th, 2014 at 7:24 pm

    St Louis is a racist city in a racist Red State. That’s the truth and anyone that’s ever lived there knows that. It seems to work both ways, but the white folks in Missouri are redneck, Confederate, Tea Party nuts.
