On Tuesday, Walmart announced major changes to its firearms policies, starting with officially ending the sale of handguns. The retailer will also stop selling certain types of ammunition, and will no longer allow customers to carry weapons inside the store. In a letter to associates, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon referenced last month’s mass shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, saying “It’s clear to us that the status quo is unacceptable.” Walmart had already done away with handgun sales in every state except for Alaska. The company will continue to sell long-barrel hunting rifles and shotguns. Do you agree with the new policies? Will Walmart face any political blowback from the decision? Do ‘gun-free’ zones prevent shootings?
