Walmart To Stop Selling Certain Ammunition, No Open Carry

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Walmart said Tuesday that it would discontinue the sale of ammunition used in high-capacity magazines and military-style weapons and also asked its customers not to openly carry firearms in stores even in states where it is permitted.

The news follows mass shootings across the country, including 22 people who were killed last month in a Walmart and the surrounding area in El Paso, Texas.

In July, a “disgruntled” Walmart employee in Mississippi killed two colleagues and wounded a responding officer.

The retail giant said it will stop selling short-barrel rifle ammunition, such as the .223 and 5.56 caliber, which can be used in high-capacity magazines and military-style weapons, CEO Doug McMillon said in a memo.
