‘It’s called capitalism’: Conservative hilariously mocked for bitter tirade against Walmart’s open carry ban

Published

on

It’s been a full day since Walmart announced it was barring customers from openly carrying guns in their stores, and many gun-loving right wingers are still hopping mad at the retail giant.

“The Left has found a new way of implementing policy from the top down, without the use of government: simply pressure massive corporations to do their political bidding,” Shapiro wrote. “This is dangerous precedent, and adds to the continuing polarization of the country.

Shapiro, who has frequently touted himself as a defender of the “free market” and an opponent of “socialism,” nonetheless criticized Walmart for making a business decision that was not made due to any kind of government coercion.

Because of this, Shapiro’s mentions were quickly filled with sarcastic replies — check out some of the reactions below.
