In the wake of another mass shooting, Walmart has announced a ban on open carry of firearms inside its stores and has asked the White House to pursue more gun control legislation, according to CNBC.

According to the report, Walmart will still allow concealed carry inside stores but plans to post signs announcing the open carry ban, even in states where open carry is legal. In addition, the retail giant also plans to discontinue sales of "short-barrel rifle" ammunition such as .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber and will cease handgun sales completely in Alaska.
