A twitter campaign broke out Friday (Aug 9) criticizing WalMart for issuing an order for employees to remove violent video game promotional displays but the company has no plans to stop selling guns or ammo.
Walmart officials said this week the retailer is not going to stop selling guns, though some gun control advocates are calling on it to do so.
‘’There’s been no change in policy,” Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove said, adding that the retailer has been focused on caring for customers and employees in the El Paso community. “It’s horrible … what’s happened.’’
In a note to store employees, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said the retailer will be “thoughtful and deliberate” in its responses.
