"The White House extended an invitation to Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to participate in a meeting Thursday focused on curbing gun violence, but the retailer declined due to a scheduling conflict, a company spokesman said."
UPDATE: Wal-mart’s schedule has magically opened up after the company faced scathing criticism for refusing to meet with the Vice President of the United States in an effort to stop future Sandy Hooks from happening in this country. Walmart, which previously said they had a scheduling conflict, now admits that they actually had a PR conflict
Even the VP of the USA has to pull some strings to get a sit down with the worlds biggest chain of stores. Sounds like Wal-mart ain't taking no shit from Obama-ville.
