Walmart associates deserve to feel safe coming to work

Walmart associates deserve to feel safe coming to work

We want Walmart to eject the racism & bigotry that’s the root cause of these hate crimes, change their policy to disallow open carry in all stores and provide clear signs at all entryways of this change, and stop the sale of guns in all stores.

Why is this important?

The mass shooting in El Paso, Texas was an act of white supremacy and domestic terrorism. Walmart associates returned to work afraid, angry, devastated, and confused. We don’t feel safe in our stores.

We support gun control and universal background checks to get weapons of war out of the hands of white supremacists, but let’s be clear that mass shootings are the symptom of a society built on xenophobia, toxic masculinity, patriarchy, and white supremacy.

We’re calling for:

1) Walmart to reject the racism & bigotry that’s the root cause of these hate crimes

2) Walmart to change their policy to disallow open carry in all stores and provide clear signs at all entryways of this change

3) Walmart to stop the sale of guns in all stores

We can’t wait any longer. We deserve to feel safe and free of violence in our stores.

Reasons for signing

  • I refuse to go to any store that sells guns. I know the NRA likes to say guns don’t kill, people do. If people didn’t have these guns, it would be a lot harder to kill many people at once.
  • We will never shop in any Walmart until they prohibit "open carry" and stop selling firearms and ammunition.
  • The 2nd amendment of the US Constitution is OUTDATED and NEEDS TO BE REPEALED as it is the root cause allowIng gun violence to flourish and grow in the USA
