"We've attempted to take common sense steps that allow us to serve customers and create a safer environment", McMillon said. Walmart is also weighing whether to take additional steps on its gun policies. That puts Walmart outside at least the top three sellers in the industry, estimated the company.
Walmart also revealed Thursday that the company accounts for 2% of gun sales in the USA and 20% of ammunition sales.
McMillon said a ban on assault weapons "should be debated to determine its effectiveness in keeping weapons made for war out of the hands of mass murderers".
"We believe it's a worthy debate for Congress to have", Bartlett said of an assault weapons ban.
Authorities say 21-year-old Patrick Crusius confessed to the August 3 shooting and told investigators that he targeted Mexicans during the attack.

After the El Paso shooting, Walmart ordered stores to remove displays depicting violence, such as video games and displays.
Since the shootings at two Walmart stores in MS and Texas, the retail giant has been asked to stop selling guns. McMillon noted that Walmart stopped selling handguns in every state but Alaska in the mid-'90s; stopped selling military-style rifles such as the AR-15 in 2015; raised the age limit to purchase a firearm or ammunition in its stores to 21 in 2018; is more strict about background checks than the law requires; videotapes gun sales areas; limits which associates can sell firearms; and "secure [s] firearms in a locking case with individual locks, among other measures".
Walmart has been in the midst of controversy since deadly shootings in two stores.
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said they are gaining market share and are on track to exceed their original earnings expectations for the year. We don't sell a firearm until we receive a "green light" regardless of the time period.
On a call with reporters, Walmart US CEO Greg Foran said that the company is working with local authorities to determine additional security measures across its USA stores.
