An aspiring author, Marshall plans to email the petition to Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon, who so far hasn't spoken publicly about the shootings save for an August 3 Instagram post that said "my heart aches" for El Paso, where 22 people were killed at a Walmart over the weekend.
Guns Down America, an advocacy group that runs campaigtens for gun control, began a petition to urge more change at Walmart late on Monday. Employees there acted quickly when a disgruntled colleague allegedly killed two co-workers and injured a police officer. Last year, it raised the minimum age for gun and ammunition purchases from 18 to 21, two weeks after a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, left 17 students and teachers dead. "With this incident just having happened over the weekend, our focus has been on supporting associates, customer and the El Paso community".
"There's not been any directive to any stores around the country to change any policy", company spokesman Randy Hargrove said in an interview with Bloomberg.
Additionally, "Walmart goes beyond federal law requiring all customers to pass a background check before purchasing any firearm", Hargrove was quoted as saying to AFP. A week earlier, two employees of a Walmart in MS were killed by a gunman whom authorities described as a disgruntled former worker.
The Twitter community then seized on the opportunity to implore the retailer to no longer stock guns on its shelves.
