Default Milpitas Walmart no longer selling ammo!

Went to walmart in milpitas this morning. Signs posted state no ammo sales after 12/31. There was nothing left on the shelves. The worker said the manager made the decision early and transfered all of their stock to gilroy store.

Sounds like the first, but hopefully the last. They donít want to deal with the background check hassle, but since thatís not for another year I donít get the timing.

Maybe he just doesnít understand that 1/1/18 would require no changes to how theyíve been selling ammo.

I would bet it has to do with adding the POS system to the internet, logging into the state system, possibly keeping logbooks for ammo sales, only employees with a COE can handle and transfer ammo and getting the ammo vendor's licence. Just a guess...

I think they are consolidating, one store per "area" selling ammo.
