NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - Kroger has announced their Fred Meyer stores will no longer sell firearms or ammunition to persons under 21-years-old.

In a statement release which was confirmed by Nashville Kroger representative Melissa Eads, the move comes in response to shootings in Parkland and elsewhere.

The company notes it stopped selling assault-style rifles in their Oregon, Washington, and Idaho stores several years ago and will now no longer accept special orders of assault-style weapons in Alaska.

The statement adds "We believe these are common sense steps we can take immediately that are in line with our values and our vision."

The announcement comes a day after Walmart made the move to also stop weapon sales to persons under 21-years-old.
