It seems that in today’s America, the Second Amendment, as put forth by the Founding Fathers and guaranteed by the Constitution, can’t get any respect. Those who support our gun rights and believe in the right to bear arms must always remain vigilant at every tactic meant to take those rights away. Gun rights are constantly demonized and attacked by Obama and his leftist allies. Assisting him are his cronies within the banking industry who are closing accounts of those businesses who sell firearms or ammunition. Now, our gun rights are being threatened once again in a most unusual way. Walmart may soon be forced to stop selling guns and ammunition due to a lawsuit they faced from a shareholder. The retail giant is a publicly traded company and one of their shareholders, Trinity Wall Street Church, sued them after, they say, Walmart refused to place a proposal on the shareholder ballot at the annual meeting.
Fox News’ Adam Shapiro covered this issue on Fox and Friends on Thursday morning. Shapiro said of the proposal that it could be interpreted as forcing Walmart’s board of directors to suspend the sale of all guns and ammunition in their stores. He added, “People who support gun rights say, the first court ruling allows political activists to push whatever agenda they wish at the corporate level, instead of through state and federal law.”
After the court ruled in Trinity’s favor, Walmart appealed. The decision on the appeal should be in later today. If the appeals court sides against Walmart, it could change the way publicly traded companies in America do business.
Although Trinity Wall Street Church has stated that their intention is not to end the sale of guns, ammunition, or any products at Walmart, should Walmart lose its appeal, it could open corporations up to thuggish bullying tactics by leftists who want to eliminate the Second Amendment through the back door.
