What Walmart should stop selling today

I have no problem with any retailer voluntarily choosing not to carry a product they don't want to.  Walmart has chosen to stop selling handgun ammunition to be a responsible retailer and help curtail preventable death in the United States.

Great, and let's get really responsible.  Walmart should immediately discontinue all sales of beer, wine and spirits.  Alcohol is purely recreational and contributes to more preventable death and abuse in the United States than firearms ever will.  It also contributes to rape, unwanted pregnancy and the drunk-driving related manslaughter of innocent families who were driving responsibly but got in the way of a drunk driver.

If Walmart is serious about not being part of preventable death in the US, it must stop selling alcohol.  There's no excuse to keep doing it.
