AUSTIN, TEXAS –- In an unusual move, Kmart company officials in Troy, Michigan announced on Thursday June 29th that they will be phasing out their ammunition sales starting immediately. Kmart spokeswoman Julie Fracker said that the sale of firearms and ammunition had been under review as part of the merchandising strategy of the company’s new executive team for some time--this according to cnn.com. “Obviously we consider ourselves a socially conscious business, but this was a business decision made in the best interests of the company,” stated Fracker.

Second Amendment Sisters (SAS) can understand if it was a business decision, but when Kmart comes out with this “decision” the day after meeting for four hours with anti-rights people, that claim is highly suspicious. Three Columbine survivors and filmmaker
Michael Moore met with Kmart executives in Troy on Wednesday.

Kmart lost many gun-owning customers after they gave into anti-gun groups in December 1999 in New York and decided not to sell rifles or shotguns at a new store. "The recent 'business decision' by K-Mart to drop ammunition sales proves the purchasing power of gun owners. It's a shame that this recent kowtowing to anti-self-defense groups will only alienate the few gun owners who still
shop there," stated Juli Bednarzyk, President of SAS.

According to the cnn.com article, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart said there is NO plan to stop selling handgun ammunition. Wal-Mart stores, except for those in Alaska, do not sell handguns but do carry hunting rifles and related accessories.

To let both Wal-Mart and Kmart know that firearm owners appreciate Pro Second Amendment companies, SAS has developed “Shopper Cards” for each store available to download from the SAS website at http://www.2asisters.org/downloads/shoppercards.htm. These cards can be printed onto blank business cards or onto plain paper and cut apart. SAS is asking that after shopping at a Pro-Second Amendment store, and giving that store the “appreciation card”, that you then fill out the other card to let Kmart know how much you spent at the Pro-Second Amendment store instead of their store, and then drop it at your local Kmart on the way home or mail it into them!
