El Paso police seek identity of hero in Walmart attack

Man Whose Wife Was Killed in El Paso Shooting Invites Public to Funeral

Police in El Paso, Texas asked for help identifying a man they believe was a hero during the mass shooting at Walmart on August 3.

We've attempted to take common sense steps that allow us to serve customers and create a safer environment. Now, the company is taking a step in the direction of gun control advocates.

Walmart also revealed Thursday that the company accounts for 2% of gun sales in the U.S. and 20% of ammunition sales.

"We do not sell military-style rifles, and we believe the reauthorization of the Assault Weapons ban should be debated to determine its effectiveness in keeping weapons made for war out of the hands of mass murderers", said Mr. McMillion.

Walmart's CEO Doug McMillon came out to the public about this issue he said that "common-sense changes" he also mentioned that the company has made specific changes like not giving guns to people below 21 he also came up with another discussion on the background checks of people who buy these guns he, however, did not give out any statement on whether the company is planning to remove arms of their shelves or not.

Walmart in its latest earnings report said e-commerce sales in the United States increased 37 percent year-over-year thanks in part to strong growth in its online grocery business.

"We believe this HERO helped save several lives including an infant", the department said.

Walmart has been in the midst of controversy since deadly shootings in two stores.

Walmart stopped selling "military-style rifles" in 2015, and now the company only sells handguns at its stores in Alaska, said Mr. McMillion, according to his remarks.

Despite its history of selling hunting weapons that goes back to Walmart's origins, Walmart has shifted its gun policies and strengthened gun safety measures. Walmart also stopped selling handguns in every state but Alaska in the mid-1990s and only sells a firearm to customers after receiving a "green light" on a background check.

He estimates that the company's stores account for only 2% of USA gun sales, which means it's not one of the top three firearms retailers in the US. "We must also do more to understand the root causes that lead to this type of violent behaviour".
