Walmart to stop selling certain gun ammunition

Walmart says it will discontinue the sale of handgun and short-barrel rifle ammunition and also publicly request that customers refrain from openly carrying firearms in stores even where state laws allow it.

The announcement comes just days after a mass shooting claimed seven lives in Odessa, Texas and follows two other back-to-back shootings last month, one of them at a Walmart store.

The Bentonville, Arkansas-based discounter said Tuesday it will stop selling handgun ammunition as well as short-barrel rifle ammunition, such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber used in military style weapons, after it runs out of its current inventory.



  1. Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops say thanks!

  2. So are they gonna stop selling 12 ga and .308 (NATO 7.62) both used for military firearms, otherwise hunting rounds? --Ron W
