Walmart no dejará de vender armas, pese a tiroteos

Aumentó a 21 la edad mínima para comprar armas y municiones en sus tiendas

ESTADOS UNIDOS.- Pese a los tiroteos en sus tiendas, el gigante minorista estadounidense Walmart no tiene planes de dejar de vender armas y municiones, dijo un portavoz del grupo.

Después del tiroteo en El Paso, el director ejecutivo de Walmart, Doug McMillon, publicó una nota en Instagram en la que afirma que ‘no puede creer’ que ocurriera un segundo incidente armado en una semana en una de sus tiendas.

“Estamos enfocados en apoyar a nuestros asociados, nuestros clientes y toda la comunidad de El Paso” Randy Hargrove.

El fundador de Walmart, Sam Walton, amaba las armas, tanto que el fabricante estadounidense Remington le puso su nombre a un modelo de rifle de caza. Pero el gigante minorista sostiene que su público objetivo son los tiradores y cazadores deportivos.

Walmart ha realizado cambios en la política de venta de armas a lo largo de los años, como en 1993, cuando dejó de vender pistolas.

La compañía dejó de vender rifles semiautomáticos en 2015, y después del tiroteo en Parkland, Florida, en febrero de 2018, que dejó a 17 muertos en una escuela secundaria, Walmart aumentó a 21 la edad mínima para comprar armas y municiones en sus tiendas.

Además, Walmart va más allá de la ley federal al exigir que todos los clientes entreguen una verificación de antecedentes antes de comprar cualquier arma de fuego, dijo Hargrove.
