Walmart to Remove Violent Game Displays but Continue Sales of Games, Guns

Walmart has ordered its employees to remove signs or displays promoting violent video games and movies from their stores out of respect for the recent victims of gun violence.

The move came less than a week after gunman Patrick Crusius stormed into an El Paso, Texas, Walmart on Saturday, killing 22 people. The company also told employees to turn off hunting season videos in its sporting goods departments, according to The Associated Press.

In her call for Walmart to stop gun sales, Warren cited CVS's 2014 decision to pull tobacco products off its shelves.

He told DailyMail.com that he doesn't have to answer every "extraneous" question that he's asked on the campaign trail. President Trump afterwards would partially blame the wave of mass shootings, including one this past weekend at a bar in Dayton, Ohio, on "gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace".

As reported by Vice, a photo of a memo sent to store workers emerged online with instructions to "remove signing and displays referencing violence". The insistence on blaming vendors for violent behavior by gun purchasers, however, is a awful trend that not only fails to solve the problem but will ultimately serve to deprive law-abiding citizens of products they have every right to purchase and own.

Walmart CEO Doug McMillon also issued a note to store employees promising "thoughtful and deliberate" responses to such tragedies.

Though some politicians have claimed the modern epidemic of mass shootings is tied to increasing violence in video games, there is no known link between violent video games and violent acts.

Shootings at Walmart stores in Texas and MS over the last two weeks have led to the deaths of two dozen people.

Meanwhile, Walt Disney Co-owned networks ESPN and ABC have chose to delay this weekend's broadcast of an esports tournament of battle royale game "Apex Legends" to October following the shootings, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The shootings, which together left 31 people dead, have renewed calls for greater limits on gun purchases, including background checks and an assault weapons ban.

On Thursday, panicked shoppers fled a Walmart in Springfield, Missouri, after a man carrying a rifle and wearing body armor walked around the store before being stopped by an off-duty firefighter. No shots were fired and no one was injured. Elizabeth Warren blasted the company in a tweet. It also does not sell any weapons to customers younger than 21.

But expecting Walmart to remove guns entirely, especially while anti-gun control advocates are still whipped into a veritable froth, is, I think, to expect too much. No profit is worth those lives.
