Not fake news – true, the Bloomberg-Walmart partnership predates the August shooting, but afterwards Walmart caves in ‘just a little more’ to Bloomberg’s pressure.
The restrictions on ammo weren’t the only thing. Open carry is restricted, too. For a lot of people, it’s a non-issue. But it is an extension of the Anti-Constitutionalists’ strategy of ‘reasonable’ restrictions that will get tolerated by a majority. Not taking issue because you don’t personally care for open carry is analogous to the duck hunter being fine with bans on ARs.
When the current ‘reasonable’ restrictions aren’t enouh, the ‘Responsible Retailers’ (supported – or pressured – by Bloomberg) will be right there, ready with just one more reasonable restriction.
