Imagine Stephanie Wehner and Mitch Strobl’s surprise when they went to pick up their photos from Walmart and one was missing. Inside was a note marked, “MINUS ONE 5X7. NO WEAPONS.”
Apparently a Walmart employee took it upon herself to NOT print the photo of the loving couple because Strobl was holding a Ruger shotgun over his shoulder. The employee felt that the photo in question promoted – wait for it – gang violence!
Wehner said that she was disappointed because the photo clearly depicts the couple’s love for one another and she wanted to be able to display that photo, along with the others at the wedding reception.
But consider the irony! Walmart sells firearms, even the Ruger brand in question. So what exactly did the couple do wrong?
According to Walmart nothing. They put it all down to the new employee who took it upon themselves to NOT print the photo. They said, “We had a new associate who was misinformed. Her actions are not consistent with our policy.”
Judge for yourself!! Should the employee have printed this photo!

Walmart sells firearms, including rifles made by Ruger. But an employee in Dallas drew the line when it came to printing an engagement photo that featured weapons made by the same company the corporation promotes.
Stephanie Wehner and her husband-to-be Mitch Strobl posed for a series of engagement photos, including one that reportedly showed Strobl slinging a 12-gauge Ruger Red Label over-and-under shotgun over this shoulder. But when they went to Walmart to retrieve their 13 photos, they only got 12 back – and a note that read “MINUS ONE 5×7. NO WEAPONS,” reports the Daily Mail.
