Ever since the two tragic shootings over a month ago in Dayton Ohio and El Paso Texas the hysteria for gun control has reached new levels. Now Walmart is the latest to fold to the liberal mob. They have asked customers to stop carrying fire arms in their store that have open carry permits and have announced they will stop selling several types of ammo.
Walmart Inc said on Tuesday it would discontinue sales of some ammunition in stores across the United States, in response to the mass shootings in Texas last month that killed several people.
The largest U.S. arms retailer also said it would discontinue handgun sales in Alaska, the only state where it sells these guns.
Walmart will stop selling short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber after clearing current stock. While this type of ammunition is commonly used in some hunting rifles, they are also used in large capacity clips on military-style weapons, the company said.
Sales of handgun ammunition will also be discontinued, it said.
