Walmart Inc said on Tuesday it would discontinue sales of ammunition for handguns and some assault-style rifles in stores across the United States, in response to recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Walmart, the largest U.S. firearms retailer, and other corporations have increasingly joined the debate over guns and gun safety as mass shootings have proliferated and while elected leaders consider options.

Walmart, like rivals Kroger-owned Fred Meyer and Dick’s Sporting Goods, has already ended sales of assault rifle and raised the minimum age for gun purchases to 21.
