(RoyalPatriot.com)- In anticipation of fresh riots and “civil unrest” in the wake of the election, supermarket chain Walmart has pulled all firearms and ammo displays from its stores. In recent days, fresh riots initiated by left-wing activists have seen Walmart stores left completely destroyed with merchandise looted.
A Walmart spokesperson announced the news to the Wall Street Journal, saying they are taking precautionary measures to protect customers and staff.
“We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers,” the spokesperson said.
On Wednesday, the company sent letters to store managers across its 4,700 American stores. The letter instructed them to pull ammo and firearms from displays because of the “current unrest in isolated areas of the country and out of an abundance of caution.”
Is 2020 the year where everyone used the phrase “abundance of caution” the most? First, the president was sent to the hospital with a COVID diagnosis “out of an abundance of caution,” and now Walmart is exhibiting similar levels of caution by removing firearms from sale. You know, in case the president wins again and the left loses their collective mind.
The decision comes after new riots began in Philadelphia on Monday. Police officers shot and killed Walter Wallace Jr, a black American who was seen on video brandishing a knife and threatening police officers. When he came within 10 feet of the officers, he was shot. Officers rushed him to the hospital but he died of the injuries.
Left-wing and anti-Trump activists immediately took the streets, fuelled by the likes of Senator Bernie Sanders who tweeted that the police officers should never have killed the man who was wielding a knife.
Walter Wallace should be alive today, and our thoughts are with his loved ones. The police responsible for murdering him in front of his mother instead of getting him the medical attention he needed should be arrested, investigated, and prosecuted by the Justice Department.

Sanders legitimized the narrative that the police committed a racist killing and called for their prosecution.
