People online are urging Walmart to stop selling guns following the two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, over the weekend.
At least nine people were killed after a gunman opened fire in Ohio, mere hours after a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas that killed at least 20 people, by a suspected white supremacist.
This is the second shooting to occur at a Walmart in the past few days – the other shooting took place at a Mississippi branch where two people were killed.
In response to the shooting, Walmart released a statement on Twitter:
We're in shock over the tragic events at Cielo Vista Mall in El Paso, where store 2201 & club 6502 are located.
We’re praying for the victims, the community & our associates, as well as the first responders.
We’re working closely with law enforcement & will update as appropriate.
In the wake of these tragedies, people are calling on Walmart to stop selling guns altogether.
Some people intend to boycott Walmart unless it stops selling guns
Others said Walmart, being the "largest retailer of firearms in the world" needs to make a stand
