New York (CNN Business)Walmart on Tuesday announced it will reduce its gun and ammunition sales, one month after more than 20 people were killed in a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.

Walmart also pressured Congress to enact gun safety measures.

The company, America's largest retailer, said it will stop selling handgun ammunition and "short-barrel rifle ammunition," such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber, that can also be used on assault-style weapons after selling all of its current inventory. Walmart (WMT) will also stop selling handguns in Alaska, the only state where it still sells handguns. And Walmart will request that customers no longer openly carry guns into its 4,700 US stores, or its Sam's Club stores, in states that allow open carry.

This might help make the gun haters happier...

When they say « ask », does that mean they cannot enforce it?

That's a good question- - I would think it depends on the locality and how their open carry laws are written.

My first thought was good don't carry a gun into the stores but a friend said that it may have the opposite intent and announce to a possible crazy person that this store is a gun free zone, like when the schools posted "Gun free zone" so shoot away.

Sorry, but the "good guy with a gun" idea generally doesn't go the way the gun nuts want you to believe it does.

We locally had a good guy with a gun just also get killed himself when he tried to intervene in a situation a few years back.

Ironically, inside of a Wal-Mart.

I'm not sure which way it 'generally' goes or not- - There are news reports of it working out well, and reports of it not.

I agree. I'm in Illinois so its not an issue. I don't think its a good argument and I believe El Paso had open carry and it did not stop the shootings. I would be more concerned that civilians would be hit by bullets than the bad guy.

But it is going to be hard to convince those that support no gun restrictions to not carry a gun to protect their family.

I do think schools posting "Gun Free Zone" is dumb.

I really don't see many people (aside from police officers) open carrying.

I saw it once at a restaurant in Kentucky. Around here, the owner of the local liquor store open carries in his store, and the guys that work at the shooting range open carry.

people open carry a lot here and every time I see it I get very nervous and scared.

Cowdung, do you think it would be better or worse if more people carried guns in stores?
2 months ago - Saturday 9/7/19 - 2:54:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it would really matter either way.

So, you don't feel safer? Thats interesting. I visited Dallas Texas a few years ago and was surprised to see people carrying guns. It made me concerned too.

...particularly with open carry.

So, you don't think it would deter a possible crazy person from going to a store to shoot people if he knew people were carrying guns?
2 months ago - Saturday 9/7/19 - 3:01:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
I guess I see the chances of a crazy person entering the store to shoot people as being so small that I don't worry about it.
2 months ago - Saturday 9/7/19 - 3:02:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
I also don't think it's really a deterrent. Crazy people probably don't plan for such things...

Chicago has had a large increase in concealed carry permits. I don't feel safer.
