On Thursday, Walmart announced that they were removing all firearms and ammunition from their stores out of concern over civil unrest and possible post-election violence. Yesterday, they did an about face, and began returning the ballistic inventory to their retail floors.
Walmart Inc said on Friday it has begun returning firearms and ammunitions to the floors of its U.S. stores a day after the world’s largest retailer said it had removed these products to protect customers and employees as tensions across the country rise.
“After civil unrest earlier this week resulted in damage to several of our stores … we asked stores to move firearms and ammunition from the sales floor …. As the current incidents have remained geographically isolated, we have made the decision to begin returning these products to the sales floor today,” the company said.
