Retailer to Continue Selling Guns
Confederate flags may be a thing of the past at Walmart, but the company is sticking to its guns…About selling guns. Walmart removed confederate flag products after Dylan Roof killed nine African-Americans in a South Carolina Church –He Says—Because they were Black. The nation’s largest retailer has since come under pressure to also stop selling guns in response to the nation’s latest mass shooting. Walmart CEO Douglas McMillon says that’s unlikely because sporting goods are an integral part of the company. The Walmart Exec says the stores firearm sales are aimed at hunters and people who shoot sporting clay. Walmart also doesn’t sell handguns and says it takes extra safety measures to protect customers and its sales associates.
