    Does NASCAR

    think the brie and caviar crowd will support them? Well, if they switch to all electric racers they might. But, how is the electricity generated? No, the brie and caviar crowd will NOT support them. If the libs get the guns, the dirty, exhaust belching racers are next on the agenda. I hate to admit the fact that this country is quickly becoming polarized, with not much tolerance for the others opinion. I guess we just need to choose which side we are on?

    It's not "becoming polarized".... it's being FORCED to be more honest.

    Read history, we've always been polarized. Absolutely nothing has ever changed between the conservatives and the liberals here nor in England nor anywhere since the inception of our free society.

    THIS is exactly why my tag line is "oft dis'd member"

    This is why I warn folks up front, "I WILL soon make you mad"...... "I WILL "p!$$ you off soon, just warning you!"..... because life has taught me that most people absolutely REFUSE to take a stand, REFUSE to actually figure out who they are and what they want, instead waffling through life like a chameleon constantly changing colors to suit each situation..... constantly trying to "just get along with everybody" and lying to themselves and everyone around them......and I won't countenance it.

    For the first time in my life I actually have a real hope that people are being forced to take sides.

    Thanks to one thing.

    Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump is the single best thing this stupid populace has been exposed to in many, many years. He comes from a world where decisions must be and will be made.

    I just pray that the stupid "conservatives" that work to advise him are actual conservatives not just typical selfish political animals. People laugh at The Donald for listening to Rush Limbaugh and Lars Larson but this is his way of staying in touch with the people, with what real people want and need.

    I've said for 40yrs and I'll say it again more than ever..... I think we're too STUPID to keep our gun rights intact. We're too bloody STUPID as a people to take the time to actually understand why and for what and how carefully our Constitution was crafted. The Second Amendment is very simple, very solid and very clear for a reason. Because our founders were perfectly aware that "if this thing works, if America actually WORKS AS PLANNED..... life will become so good the STUPID PEOPLE, the losers, the "have nots" will wreck it."

    And THIS is why we can't have good things

    They should have stayed out of it on one hand they proudly proclaim to support our troops and they were doing a pretty good job of it. And now on the other hand they won't support those who are making the firearms that give these same troops a much better fighting chance for them to make it back home alive. The are also and just as importantly made to be used to support a well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State. And now Nascar has simply sided with those who want to take this and our constitutional right away. They should be embracing those who were wanting to support it not destroy it and it will eventually become their own demise.

    Might add thanks to Dick's Sporting Goods and now Walmart. Gun Shops in my area are once again doing extremely well and even to the point of having Gunsmiths on hand. There was time when we had none left in town so it's actually more of a good thing than not.

    Glad it works for some folks. For Walmart it's a political stunt.

    Since they are not going to sell handgun ammo anymore after inventory is depleted, does that mean the will not sell .22 RF ammo? See the BS in all this??

    After ole Sam died, the hierarchy at Walmart went totally Chinese. They unemployed multitudes of US workers by having cheap crap made in China and undercutting every mom and pop business in small towns over the Country.

    Of course, the consumers love it. Their lard asses get to ride around on carts in their mumu's and flip flops and support China's economy.

    I do not shop at Walmart.

    I see that a couple that was wonded at the Texas Wal-mart shooting has sued them. For what? Failing to protect them?

    I think that Wal-mart's decision about ammo was due to fear of lawsuits, but it may also be a publicity stunt aimed at looking like they are "doing something".

    I personally am rethinking why I need Wal-mart for anything. It's not like they have the best goods in any category. I had the same impression of Dick's, so when they dissed sportsmen with their anti-gun positions, it was easy to just write them off. I have not set foot in a Dick's since.

    I am glad that the small independent stores are seeing more business.

    In Idaho there are car dealerships that give away Reminton 870 shot guns on purchase of a car. They are not catering to liberals....you gotta love it. I sure do.

    NASCAR started their (off track) left turn several years ago when France III kowtowed to Jesse Jackson to the tune of $250,000 cash and the Drive to Diversity programs. Didn't know they were still in business.
