US retail giant Wal-Mart recently announced they would be limiting ammunition sales due to concerns with loss of life related to shootings.
Though shootings are statistically a minuscule cause of death nationally Wal-Mart did considered banning cigarettes (480,000 deaths annually) or opioid drug sales (300,000 deaths annually). “After going over the numbers, we realized addiction was too profitable, banning ammunition while not really moving the needle on safety, it does helps us look progressive to people who would never shop at our stores anyways.”
In a related story Wal-Mart also banned open carry in their stores this week. “We feel law abiding citizens should be going around the stores stopping mass shootings. The mass shooters are customers too.”
