What ever you do Walmart….
Don’t sell guns to the inner city blacks!
Wouldn’t want them to get any ideas that close to the Capitol buildings, heh heh.
The local news website DCist.com also reported this week that Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest gun retailer, has promised not to sell guns and firearms at its D.C. sites.
To Wal-Mart critics, none of that matters. They use sharp words — “war,” “invasion” and “destruction of this city” — to describe the magnitude of the threat they say the company poses.
The critics are especially vocal in Ward 4, where Wal-Mart wants to replace a long-vacant car dealership site with a store at Georgia and Missouri avenues Northwest, a major crossroad surrounded by single-family homes and brimming with mom-and-pop retailers.
While some D.C. lawmakers who live in Ward 4 appear willing to work with Wal-Mart, some longtime residents and community organizers are dead-set against the retailer’s stores anywhere inside city limits. One effort is called “Wal-Mart Free DC”; another bills itself as “Ward Four Thrives.” Both groups count local businesses, residents and union members among their ranks.
