Despite a public outcry, Walmart is still selling "modern sporting rifles" (read: assault rifles), reportedly including the Bushmaster AR-15, the model used in the Newtown shooting. But there are some items too controversial for Walmart. The Huffington Post helpfully compiled a few of the things that Walmart apparently believes are even more dangerous than such firearms:
- Pregnant Barbie—Or rather, Barbie's pregnant gal pal Midge. The doll was removed from Walmart shelves due to customer complaints.
- Plan B—The "morning after" pill is currently sold at Walmart, but only because a 2006 lawsuit forced it to do so; the retailer removed it from its shelves in 1999.
- Jon Stewart—The Daily Show host's America: The Book is off-limits because of a spread of photoshopped naked pictures of Supreme Court justices.
- Racy magazines—Stewart and company aren't alone; Walmart's not down with even mild nudity. Publications like Maxim, Stuff, and FHM are verboten.
- A whole boatload of albums—Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown, the Goo Goo Dolls' A Boy Named Goo, Sheryl Crow's self-titled debut album, Prince's Lovesexy, and absolutely everything by Marilyn Manson have all been banned over objections to lyrics or cover art.
