A journalist for Business Insider tried her luck at buying a gun in a Walmart store and said it was “far more complicated” than she expected after leaving empty-handed. Twice.

More than 134,000 people have signed a petition created by Walmart employees demanding that the store stop selling guns in an effort to “change our company for the better.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Amid the requests to stop the sale of guns at the retail giant, BI reporter Hayley Peterson saw for herself how easy it is to buy a gun at a Walmart “as part of an investigation into the placement, selection, marketing, security and sales of firearms in Walmart’s stores.”

Peterson discovered that not all Walmarts sell guns, and she had to travel 30 minutes away to get to a store that did. She was initially turned away because there were no firearms sales associates available to help her (Walmart has specially trained associates). Then, she was stymied by a paperwork discrepancy.

Breitbart reports:

“Overall, the experience left me with the impression that buying a gun at Walmart is more complicated than I expected, and that Walmart takes gun sales and security pretty seriously,” Peterson concluded after leaving the store a second time without a gun.

    Anyone who has legally tried to buy a gun knows it isn’t that easy. People who have never tried have no idea what it requires
