Walmart Employees Protest Against Gun Sales With Store Wide Walkout

After this past weekend’s mass shootings tragedies in El Paso and Dayton that took the lives 31 innocent individuals and injured dozens more, a Walmart employee in San Bruno, California has organized a walkout to protest the store’s gun sales. Walmart is one the largest gun and ammunition retailers in the world and its for that reason why Thomas Marshall contacted more than 20,000 employees and started a petition.

“Of all the gun tragedies, this hit the closest to home for a lot us,” the 23-year-old told CNN. “I felt like I had to do something or else I would really be complicit in a company that was continuing to sell firearms.” The Change.org petition is just a handful signatures away from hitting its 50,000 goal, directed at Walmart CEO Doug McMillon.

“We would like to see Walmart take a unified and public stance against guns and gun violence. We urge our leadership to cease the sale all firearms and ammunition, ban the public open and concealed carry weapons on company property and in all stores, and cease WALPAC donations to NRA backed -A/A+ politicians,” the petition reads. 

Kyrie Irving Considering Joining Lakers, With LeBron On The Roster: Report

During a recent episode  Hoop Collective, Brian Windhorst made certain he chose his words carefully in describing Kyrie Irving’s preferences going into NBA free agency. According to noted insider, Kyrie Irving might be yearning for a reunion with LeBron James, so much as the current Celtic player is reportedly putting out feelers, and/or spoken to “people interest” with regards to potentially signing with the Lakers.

“As time passes here, I would’ve said that this is impossible for many months. But as time passes here and as the possibility exists that Jason Kidd could be hired as the Lakers coach, I think the possibility Kyrie and LeBron reuniting—that door, which was deadbolted, has been un-deadbolted and has now been cracked open,” he said on-air. “It might even be opening more by the day. And I say that just because I think it’s on Kyrie’s radar, it’s on Kyrie’s board. He has had discussions with people about playing for the Lakers.”

Take this report with a grain salt. A reunion with LeBron James would be damaging to Kyrie’s brand and legacy, that is if he’s in any way concerned with those lingering factors. Even though I personally think it’s not in their best interest to do so, the Boston Celtics have given Kyrie and the press, they want to sign him to a multiyear contract this fseason.
