Wal-Mart Increasing Age Limit for Firearms Purchases
In response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting two weeks ago, retailers are making moves to further restrict the sales of firearms. The latest is a big one.
Wal-Mart, one of the world's top retailers, has set new age restrictions for those wanting to buy guns in its stores.
Wal-Mart already discontinued sales of AR-15s in 2015, and does not carry bump stocks or large capacity magazines. The company is even removing items "resembling assault-style rifles" from its website.
This announcement follows the decision by Dick's Sporting Goods to stop selling firearms in its stores.
