    Walmart pulls violent video game displays but keeping guns

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/09/business/walmart-violent-video-games/index.html

    Walmart is taking down displays of violent video games in its stores in the wake of recent shootings. But the company plans to still sell the controversial video games -- and guns.

    Why bother?

    to make it SEEM like you are doing something without actually doing anything
    You are 1,000% correct.  And here’s another whole lotta nothing...”The company will also stop playing violent movies and shows on televisions in its electronics section. It will similarly stop playing hunting videos in its sporting goods section.”
    it may be time for me to boycott Wal-Mart once again. 
    I've been in there twice when my wife dragged me in.

    Fuck that place.

    The only people against background checks, besides the gun manufacturers, are crazies who think the Deep State will use it to take away their guns.

    Gun owners kill people
    Children of gun owners kill other children
    White supremacist gun owners kill people
    "Responsible" gun owners kill people

    Wasn't a poster spouting on just the other day about how we have to close the border because that was where a lot of illegal firearms were coming into the country and contributing to our gun violence? Is the other side really that misinformed?

    How pathetic is this? WTF is wrong with this country? Don't forget to pack your bleed out kit.

    The bulletproof panels are designed to withstand multiple rounds from a handgun — and two of this season’s bestsellers are emblazoned with Disney princesses and Avengers superheroes.

    “Here’s our demographic: parents with kids,” said Steve Naremore, founder of TuffyPacks, a Houston-based company that sells bulletproof backpack inserts. “It’s a real morbid niche.”

    And a growing one: Sales have increased every year since 2016.

    This is America in 2019, where mass shootings have become so commonplace that consumers are buying bulletproof backpacks, clipboards, even three-ring binder inserts, that they hope will protect them from gunfire. Retailers across the country say they have seen growing demand for bullet-resistant products for children — as well as for doctors, teachers, flight attendants and taxi drivers — giving rise to an industry of ballistic goods for everyday Americans, though there is little evidence the products are actually effective.

    My college here in Sweden talked about buying her son a new backpack, because he felt he was to old for his Spider-Man one... she didn't say anything about it having to be bulletproof though...

    That would work.

    I know you aren't really serious though.

    Edit:  You could go down to 3/8 steel.

    Maybe just insert an inch thick steel plate?
    That would work.

    I know you aren't really serious though.

    Edit:  You could go down to 3/8 steel.
    lol steel plates in back packs so the weapon enthusiast can keep their weapons lol yeah how about yrs from now kids developing back issues yeah great idea not ! 

    I was only kidding.  No way I would want my kid to have that.  Just fill it with books, it'll do the same thing as the steel.

    How pathetic is this? WTF is wrong with this country? Don't forget to pack your bleed out kit.

    The bulletproof panels are designed to withstand multiple rounds from a handgun — and two of this season’s bestsellers are emblazoned with Disney princesses and Avengers superheroes.

    “Here’s our demographic: parents with kids,” said Steve Naremore, founder of TuffyPacks, a Houston-based company that sells bulletproof backpack inserts. “It’s a real morbid niche.”

    And a growing one: Sales have increased every year since 2016.

    This is America in 2019, where mass shootings have become so commonplace that consumers are buying bulletproof backpacks, clipboards, even three-ring binder inserts, that they hope will protect them from gunfire. Retailers across the country say they have seen growing demand for bullet-resistant products for children — as well as for doctors, teachers, flight attendants and taxi drivers — giving rise to an industry of ballistic goods for everyday Americans, though there is little evidence the products are actually effective.

    If you really think about this the backpack won't help.  Any high powered rifle will go right through that backpack.

    I do believe they would someday and I know California did it in the 90's.
    When did CA confiscate legal firearms from owners on the 90s? Did they have felonies? Were the guns illegal? What were the circumstances?

    You had to "re-register" the guns.  The state made an example out of some people.  One was a cop.

    He  allegedly broke a law and had means to carry out the threat.  The arrest,  felony charge and leaky subsequent inability to own a firearm legally in the future seems appropriate

    You’re okay with someone stockpiling multiple firearms and thousands of rounds of ammo and making online threats to legally protected service providers and law enforcement while praising two of the biggest douchey domestic terrorists? Really? You’re okay with that? You’d sell to him if you were aware of his postings, wouldn’t you? Ahhhh, but he’s “responsible.” Until he’s not. Gun CULTcha’s affecting your ability to rationalize. Renewing your NRA membership? Out of convenience? And to answer your question, I don’t know. Maybe? Maybe not? Time might tell but I wouldn’t leave him with his arsenal while we try to determine that.
