Walmart Clarifies Policy on ARs and “Personal Protection” Shotguns

We reached out to Walmart and just spoke to Kory Lundberg in their media relations group regarding reports that Wally World is getting out of the AR and “personal protection” shotgun business. While he was unsure of the status of shotguns (he said he’d get back to us when he knows more), Lundberg confirmed that a corporate decision has been made to phase out “MSR” (his term) rifles “for the fall” in favor of sporting and target guns. He stressed that this was a demand-based decision, one made to reflect and meet the needs of their customers and was in no way based on politics or any other consideration. Satisfied?
