*sigh*

Ammunition restrictions and scarcity would cause far, FAR more problems than they'd ever solve. Proficiency with any firearm requires practice, which requires many hours of range time involving many, many rounds of ammunition. Make it more difficult for people to obtain and you will end up with the same number of firearms out there, the same number of people intending to do evil acts with the same quantity of ammo as they'd presently have on hand (because these types of artificial scarcity actions don't impact those with ill intent... they'll buy on the black market or steal what they want, it only impacts the average ho-hum civilian) BUT we will also have a bunch of people out of practice looking to use their firearms for defense or hunting, but due to limited ammo options, rarely pulling the trigger to practice. That means a lot more bad shots, accidents, wounded rather than downed animals during hunting season, and a lot of rusty gun owners.

In other words, you're speaking of things you have no practical knowledge of and it shows.

How soon Walmart forgets. Or maybe they really just hate their customers. But a friend did some research

Oops.

And let's let capitalism work. If enough people don't like the decision they will reverse it and vice versa.

Quite so. It would be nice if each individual store could choose the way they want to deal with this according to the feelings of the people in their particular areas. People in rural areas seem to want to keep their guns more than people in larger cities.

We're not all the same.

I usually buy other # when I go in there for ammo so they are screwing themselves.

Any ammo that can fire from a long barrel can be fired from a short barrel as well. So to say that they are not selling short barrel ammo is to make a specific-sounding statement of no actual distinction.

Also, stating that these particular cartridges can be used in "large capacity clips" ignores the fact that practically all cartridges used in hunting rifles can be loaded into magazines holding more than a few rounds. Again, a specific-sounding statement of no actual distinction.

It seems that these are merely excuses to throw at the public for halting sales of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifles sold all across the country.

Little do these people know that the .223 is actually illegal to use for hunting deer in some states, because the round isn't considered powerful enough to hunt deer, yet because the AR-15 is chambered in .223 they think it's equivalent to a howitzer.
