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.

Wal-Mart critics plot to stop 4-store ‘invasion’ in D.C. – Washington Times

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.
