It seems more likely this was a mistake a poor hourly worker made. Now they will suffer for a silly mistake. Obviously Walmart isn't saying to pull a John McClain and save the school from angry russian separatists this school year. I think that's what they were in Die Hard.
We need to stop demonizing the gun in this country. Children should be educated on guns in a positive light. I hate that schools feel obligated to send anti-gun messages. Nothing wrong with children taking a healthy interests in guns, whether it be for hunting or just going out and having some fun with an AK47. This is America and our freedoms should be embraced.
Agree - the key words are ultimately (IMO) proper education and guidance by parents, school and society. Otherwise, the negative influence tends to be very one-sided - very easy for the child to be influenced by violence and action seen on TV or in the movies.
Guns are obviously cultural. I didn't grow up around guns, so I didn't shoot a real gun until going to Disney World! Seriously, Machine Gun America was down the street.
If you grew up with guns, you will have different views than me. My view, it should be at least as hard to buy a gun as it is to buy a car from a dealer. Background checks and no crazy people.
The angle of the photo could be deceiving.
I... think... we'll need to agree to disagree about children going out and "having some fun" with an AK47.
As an adult, they are fun. Sort of... I don't see a real point to something that hard to aim.
I respect your opinion as long as it is logical and consistent. So if these inconveniences are applied to the second amendment, then it is only logical to be applied to the first amendment as well.
Why would that be logical? Do sticks and stones in fact break your bones?
1) The scope of the second amendment is stated within the amendment itself.
2) A person with a violent history has the potential to make somebody mad with the first amendment. What is their potential with a gun, do you suppose?
The rights in the Bill of Rights do not need justification for them to be exercised. I do not need to prove a valid reason why I might buy 3 guns at one time, just as if someone that wants to go protest abortion on the street doesn't need to go justify their reasons for doing it, they just can stand on street with a sign. It is actually a beautiful thing, freedom.

But that's not what the actual amendments say...
Was this posted online by the store or a customer? If it was done by a customer then he/she should have spoken with the store manager about it instead of posting it online. It was obviously a mistake but I know how people love to cause drama by posting things online. It's really getting ridiculous.
Apparently it was posted online by a customer and sent to Walmart HQ. The sign was removed shortly afterwards.
here are some other unsuitable back to school offers
Have you read the Declaration of Independence? How about the Federalist Papers? It explains very well the intent of The Bill of Rights. Our country is a Republic and our freedoms come in the form of INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, it is not a collective set of rights.
My local grocery store has school supplies opposite the alcohol.
Back to school sale for teachers? Lol
Teachers and parents! LOL Parents will need it due to all of the homework and Whining kids in the mornings.
