Walmart Enters the Gun Control Debate

A month after a gunman killed 22 people at a Walmart store in El Paso, the nation’s largest retailer, said that it would stop selling ammunition used for handguns and military-style weapons and call on Congress to consider a new ban on assault rifles. We look at what Walmart’s move means, and how corporate America could play a role in curbing the epidemic of gun violence. Guest: Andrew Ross Sorkin, a financial columnist for The New York Times.

Background reading:

  • Walmart, whose reach has reshaped communities nationwide, largely avoids publicly wading into politics. That made its decision to limit ammunition sales even more notable.
  • The move by Doug McMillon, Walmart’s chief executive, “to engage in a meaningful conversation about responsible gun sales in America could give license to other business leaders to enter the conversation,” Andrew Ross Sorkin writes.
