Wal-Mart Blows Off White House Gun Control Talks …Update: Wal-Mart Folds?

Wal-Mart declined to attend gun control talks at the White House this week. They were already booked and couldn’t get away.
The Wall Street Journal reported:

The White House extended an invitation to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to participate in a meeting Thursday focused on curbing gun violence, but the retailer declined due to a scheduling conflict, a company spokesman said.

The meeting is part of a series of gatherings Vice President Joe Biden is holding this week with a wide range of organizations, including the National Rifle Association and victims’ groups, as he and other administration officials undertake a broad review of gun violence in the wake of the December shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. On Thursday, the vice president is scheduled to sit down with gun owners’ groups, including the NRA, as well as advocates for sportsmen and sportswomen…

This is more proof that Wal-Mart is a lot smarter than the Republican Party.

UPDATE: Maybe not. Twitchy says they’re going now. The threats must have been effective.

    These aren’t “meetings” or “discussions”. This is the Obama administration telling them how things are going to be. There won’t be questions. They’ll be lucky to get donuts and coffee.

    Drudge is linking to a Weekly Standard story that Biden, one of the authors of the Brady Bill years ago, met today with Eric Holder to explore what Executive options are open to Obama – in other words, what he can get away with – without requiring the consent of congress. They’ve already decided that they’re going to jam this down our throats whether we like it or not, whether it’s constitutional or not, and whether Congress agrees to it or not.

    The Bill of Rights is about to be changed by executive fiat, without asking anybody’s permission. Obama knows, especially after the way they forced Obamacare on us, that it’s a lot easier to do something than it is to undo it. A fait accompli, and f*ck you all.

    It’s for your own safety, doncha know.

    Agree with #1. I’m beginning to think all of them are Communists.

    They don’t have to confiscate them. Obama’s demands call for a national database of gun owners. That’s as good as confiscation. Remember, Custer would have won if he had convinced the Indians to come over this hill one at a time.

    If they are making a huge deal about this gun issue, we ought to make an ENORMOUS big stink about their abortion loving, unborn baby murdering ways.

    Think about it.

    Good for WalMart. Why would anyone want to waste their time at a dog and pony show.

    Sounds like one of Hillary’s infamous and ever frequent “scheduling conflicts” when called to testify.

    Obama, we dare you to attack the Constitution with an extra-legal executive order. That’s instant impeachment grounds.

    WELL THEN….!!!….HOW DARE WALMART REFUSE THE ALMIGHTY AND POWERFUL OBAMA ! …Lets see if any child of the Walmart Family has an unfortunate MYSTERIOUS ACCIDENT in the next few days…a drive by shooting perhaps ?
