Still, very glad they're doing it.....
due to pressure from stock-holders!

Suppose any reason for selling fewer military-grade weapons is a good one. But something about the notion of "due to low sales" gives me the creeps! Thanks, Ray.

The best decision from ChinaMart in a long time.

Better stop selling the kitchen cutlery & anything else that can kill people as well. I have no idea what is so creepy about not carrying something because it doesn't sell well. Wouldn't poor sales of military-grade weapons be a good sign to you? Not posting "gun free zone" signs would be a help in not attract killers who see it as an advertisement for getting away with slaughtering countless people.

While most would not argue against improved background checks, it's not easy keeping weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill either because:
"...unless a person is mentally adjudicated incompetent by a court, neither irregular behavior, nor hostility nor a record of multiple firings would be reported by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
"And you see with a lot of these people that they planned and executed their attack with such rational planning that they're able to mask the signs of mental illness that others see,"

There is a different mindset in operation with kitchen cutlery as opposed to a weaponry WHOSE ONLY FUNCTION IS TO KILL.

The American Constitution needs to be AMENDED as it has been on multiple occasions, or America and Americans are going to be continued waste because of guns.
