Fear of escalation with guns!
US retail giant Walmart has moved its guns and ammunition off the shelves. Reason: the upcoming presidential election!
A company spokesman: Since there had been “isolated unrest” in the past, the measures “for the safety of employees and customers” were implemented. Weapons and ammunition would still be sold on request.
However, the measure is not new: According to the spokesman, this has been done on several occasions in the past. However, he did not say when the weapons should be openly sold again.
Rioting and looting have erupted in several US cities this year, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Portland. At the same time, US firearms sales hit record levels ahead of Tuesday’s vote.
Experts do not rule out violence in the area of choice.
