Guns in Walmart

Walmart has previously gotten customers infuriated over some of its marketing strategies. According to another report on CNN, the company’s store branch in Panama City Beach placed stacked boxes of Coca-Cola in what seemed to be a visual attempt to commemorate the September 11 attacks. The display was also taken down.

Gun control advocates have reportedly criticized the store for selling guns in-store. Romper stated that the shopping store seemed to be giving consumers easy access to fire arms.

“It is likely that the signage in the picture from Wednesday taken at a Walmart was a prank or a simple mistake made by an underpaid employee. But school shootings are nothing to laugh about,” the article mentioned.
