Walmart quit selling AR-15 rifles in 2015

0

(AP) - Walmart Inc., the world's largest retailer, says it's not currently changing its policies related to gun purchases, but it says it already has a rigorous background check for buyers.

The company stopped selling AR-15 rifles and other semi-automatic weapons back in 2015 because of sluggish demand.

The AR-15 was used in the Parkland, Florida, massacre that killed 17 people earlier this month.

Walmart also does not sell bump stocks, the accessory that's attached to a semi-automatic gun, which makes it easier to fire rounds faster. It also does not sell large capacity magazines.
