Recently, Wal-Mart joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg at a gathering of Bloomberg?s anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, to announce a series of changes to the way in which Wal-Mart handles firearm transactions. At the press event, J.P. Suarez, chief compliance officer for Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said: ?The costs are, we think, part of what it takes to be responsible.? Suarez also added, "This is not a signal that we're getting out of firearms."

So...then, why the database? Is WalMart gonna send gift cards for ammo discounts to all their gun buyers? I thought the federal background check was the stop gap measure on illegal firearm purchases at retail level. Why is a corporate vendor tracking my firearm and ammo purchases? Another reason to not shop at China's favorite store.
