Janie’s got no gun: WalMart refuses gun sale to “petite” woman?
Quick, get NOW on the phone. I’m certain they’ll be all too happy to help out this young mother. This story is making the rounds from her Facebook page to The Firearm Blog and the Blaze. Suddenly the Constitution has a height requirement? Wow, I missed that one.
Here’s the kicker though. The man behind the counter looked at me in disbelief when I pointed out the beefy Mossberg 930 Tactical weapon that Brad had researched out for me and planned on taking me out shooting to get comfortable with. The man then proceeded to interrogate me about what I wanted it for and how it would be used. He said that I didn’t hold it right and that I needed “something else better suited to you”. He put it back in the case and firmly refused to sell it. – All because I am a petite young woman!
He threatened me with the FBI and accused me of purchasing the gun for “someone else” – namely my husband who was with me. My husband informed him that IF he was the one that would be primarily using the gun then he would have bought it himself but it was going to be mine to keep with us and practice with, so we wanted it in my name….
