Walmart announced Thursday that it has removed ammunition and firearms from sales floors at its U.S. locations in anticipation of “civil unrest” in parts of the country.
The retail giant said it will still sell guns and ammunition at its stores where offered, but would remove them from public displays following looting in Philadelphia this week.
“We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our associates and customers,” a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill.
The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
