Walmart To Restrict Ammunition Sales

Walmart Home Office

Walmart will discontinue the sale of all short-barrel rifle ammunition that can be used with military-style weapons as well as handgun ammunition. The retail giant will also stop selling handguns in Alaska, according to a memo from CEO Doug McMillon.

“After visiting El Paso on Aug. 6, I mentioned that we would be thoughtful and deliberate in our responses. We’re ready to share our next steps,” McMillon noted in the Tuesday note. “We’ve been giving a lot of thought to our sale of firearms and ammunition. We’ve previously made decisions to stop selling handguns or military-style rifles such as the AR-15, to raise the age limit to purchase a firearm or ammunition to 21, to require a ‘green light’ on a background check while federal law only requires the absence of a ‘red light,’ to videotape the point of sale for firearms and to only allow certain trained associates to sell firearms.”       MORE
