I kept pressing Walmart’s spokesman hard for the county official’s name. By Monday afternoon, things began to fall apart.
Mullins sheepishly admitted a “co-manager” at the store, whom he declined to name, decided on their own to halt gun and ammo sales during the emergency, citing Florida Statute 870.044.
I pointed out to Mullins that this statute does allow a county government to suspend firearms and ammunition sales, but only during a riot or other “general public disorder.” It says nothing about halting gun sales during inclement weather.
“That’s something we’ve addressed at the store and with the co-manager who made the decision,” Mullins admitted. “I think there was a judgement call made by management. If any mistakes were made, they’re certainly being addressed with the co-manager.”

Was it just a case of plain stupidity or Gun Control Induced stupidity? I guess we will never know. Should they be held liable? I don’t know if there is really a standing on that. The crowd over Florida carry may know better.

Silver linings and stuff like that? I am guessing a memo will be (if it is not already) flying to all Florida stores reminding managers about the gun laws of the State of Florida.

Back to our regular programming.

  1. Not only did the “co-manager” go full-stupid with over reaction, the person can’t spell either. ENERGENCY
