Walmart Raises Age for Buying Firearms to 21

Wednesday, 28 February 2018 06:59 PM

Walmart Inc said on Wednesday that it was raising the minimum age at which customers could buy firearms and ammunition to 21 years.

The U.S. retailer is also removing items from its website resembling assault-style rifles, including non-lethal airsoft guns and toys, it said in a statement.

A massacre at a Florida high school two weeks ago has reopened a fierce debate over gun control in the United States.

Dick's Sporting Goods announced a similar move earlier Wednesday.
