It would appear that many do not trust Barack Obama to abide by the US Constitution’s 2nd Amendment.
Sales are through the roof for semi-automatic weapons following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. According to Bloomberg, semi-automatic rifles are sold out at many WAL-MART store locations. Obama may have done more to stimulate the economy through his threats to ban guns than any of his stimulus money.
With President Barack Obama endorsing sweeping gun restrictions in the wake of the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, prices for handgun magazines are surging on EBay (EBAY) and semi-automatic rifles are sold out at many Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) locations.
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, said yesterday that it would continue to sell guns, including rifles like the one used at Newtown, where 26 people, most of them children, were killed on Dec. 14. By contrast, Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (DKS) suspended sales of similar guns at its more than 500 stores.
Searches of five kinds of semi-automatic rifles on Wal- Mart’s website showed them to be out of stock at stores in five states, including Pennsylvania, Kansas and Alabama. Wal-Mart doesn’t sell guns online, instead asking customers to input a zip code to see if their local store carries a specific weapon.
According to James Rosen of FOX News, NRA membership is up 8000 a day since the deadly shootings in Newtown, CT. As per Rasmussen, following the school shooting, 86% want more action to identify and treat mental illness, as opposed to agreeing with Obama and gun control.
UPDATE I: Gallup pollhas banning guns 4th on the list for protecting school children.
Big Thank You to Barack Obama … Walmart Will not Offer Health Insurance to New Employees, Will Shift Them to To Medicaid, Obamacare
Welcome to the Barack Obama economy …
Thanks Barack Obama, this was the ultimate outcome with Obamacare where companies would not provide insurance to their employees. Obama promised that people would not lose their insurance. Guess what, he lied. Wal-Mart announced this week they would end insurance for new hires. What else is a business to do but to look out after their bottom line to remain profitable? What a disaster Barack Obama has perpetrated on the American public. He has created a part-time employment nation. Worse yet, many folks are going to be tossed on Medicaid thanks to Obamacare. And you saps actually thought that you were going to be able to keep your insurance and doctors. I guess there really is a sucker born every minute or in this case 62,615,406 suckers.
Remember when Obama promised that Obamacare would allow you to keep your doctor and insurance plan?

Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week, according to a copy of the company’s policy obtained by The Huffington Post.
Under the policy, slated to take effect in January, Walmart also reserves the right to eliminate health care coverage for certain workers if their average workweek dips below 30 hours — something that happens with regularity and at the direction of company managers.
Walmart declined to disclose how many of its roughly 1.4 million U.S. workers are vulnerable to losing medical insurance under its new policy. In an emailed statement, company spokesman David Tovar said Walmart had “made a business decision” not to respond to questions from The Huffington Post and accused the publication of unfair coverage.
Labor and health care experts portrayed Walmart’s decision to exclude workers from its medical plans as an attempt to limit costs while taking advantage of the national health care reform known as Obamacare. Among the key features of Obamacare is an expansion of Medicaid, the taxpayer-financed health insurance program for poor people. Many of the Walmart workers who might be dropped from the company’s health care plans earn so little that they would qualify for the expanded Medicaid program, these experts said.
With All the Talk About Strikes & Boycotts Against Walmart … Time Lapse Video Shows Record Black Friday Sales at Walmart
WALMART IS NO TWINKIE …
Strikes and boycotts against Walmart in an effort to harm them economically. In the end they were a union epic fail. Who are you going to believe, the Left or your lying eyes? Check out the time lapse video below recording the record sales on Black Friday at Walmart. The Grinches on the LEFT tried to make it a miserable experience for shoppers, but they failed in a big way. If anything, their protests may have served to boost sales ala Chick-fil-a. As reported at Breitbart.com, Walmart reported record sales.
Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales
The Occupy Wall Street protesters lose again. OWS called for boycotts and Americans responded with Buycotts.
Much to the OWS dismay, Black Friday sales increased by a record 6.6%. As the OWS protesters tried to prevent Americans from going to businesses like WalMart and Best Buy, Americans provided their own “Freedom of Speech” and spoke with their wallets.
Despite 9% unemployment, more Americans below the poverty level, record number on food stamps, 17% believing the country is headed in the right direction and only 8% rating the US economy as good or excellent, 152 million people came together to spend $11.4 billion on Black Friday. Granted, this is only one day … but it is better than the alternative.
Black Friday sales increased 6.6 percent to the largest amount ever as U.S. consumers shrugged off 9 percent unemployment and went shopping.
Consumers spent $11.4 billion, ShopperTrak said in a statement yesterday. Foot traffic rose 5.1 percent on Black Friday, according to the Chicago-based research firm.
As many as 152 million people were expected to shop at stores and websites on Black Friday, up 10 percent from last year, the National Retail Federation said. The Washington-based NRF is scheduled to release Thanksgiving weekend sales today.
Sadly, many individuals who went out on Black Friday and purchased items acted in less than an appropriate manner, it is not any less inappropriate or classless than the OWS protesters who failed to convince anyone to boycott Walmart or the other big boys on the block.
President Obama must be caught in the middle and not know what to say? Does he praise the economic spending or say nothing because his endorsed OWS protest movement failed in their efforts?
Black Friday Insanity … Pepper Spray, Gunshots and Mayhem, Oh My … WalMart Shopper Pepper Sprays Fellow Costomers
BLACK CRAZY FRIDAY: What is wrong with people … could some individuals possibly misunderstand more the Reason for the Season?
People … gunshots, pepper spray, assaults, and brawls! What is wrong with you? Are you folks human or savages? What could possibly be so important? Really! Take a good look at your actions and ask yourself, do you honestly think this is the “reason for the season” and whether it was worth it.
During the beginning of last night’s “Black Friday” experience, a shopper at a WALMART in California pepper sprayed fellow customers in what was describes as “competitive shopping”. Please, its called complete insanity and assault. The unknown woman sprayed customers to keep them away from merchandise that she was after. UNBELIEVABLE. At least 20 individuals suffered minor injuries from the insane exploits of this deranged woman. Let’s just call it “Black Pepper” Friday.
Alejandra Seminario, 24, said she was waiting in line to grab some toys at the store around 9:55 p.m. when people the next aisle over started shouting and ripping at the plastic wrap encasing gaming consoles, which was supposed to be opened at 10 p.m.
