Wal-Mart, the largest seller of guns in the U.S.says it will not carry Ronda Rousey’s upcoming book, in stores because she’s is TOO violent.

Even though the superstore announced customers can still pre-order the book online, Publisher Judith Regan is dismayed at the store’s decision. “I’m shocked, shocked to discover that censorship is going on in America!” Regan said in an interview.

The book is due out in stores May 12th. However, Barnes & Nobles has announced they have already pre-sold thousands of copies of  Rousey’s “My Fight/Your Fight.”

Rousey, who is the undefeated mixed martial arts champion and former Olympian, has helped put the sport of MMA on the map and is now viewed as the UFC’s biggest draw.

By far the most anticipated fight for MMA fans doesn’t involve fighters such as Jon Jones, Chris Weidman or Anderson Silva, but a possible super bout between Rousey and Brazilian powerhouse Chris Cyborg. The matchup could break UFC Pay-Per-View records.

The MMA star has also become an ambassador for the sport, last week she represented the UFC at a meeting with New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo to discuss legalizing the sport in the state. And Rousey’s star is growing in Hollywood, landing roles in “Furious 7” and in the upcoming “Entourage” movie.

In her book, Rousey tells her life story and explains how through hard work and determination, she overcame disadvantages of being a female in a male-dominated sport to become the sport’s biggest star.

In the book, Rousey appeals to her growing fan base with a different approach. She seeks to motivate and encourage young people, especially females, to follow their dreams.

Unfortunately for Wal-Mart, by not carrying the book, it’s a refusal to recognize the accomplishments of one of if not the biggest female athlete in sports.
