Walmart Removes Violent Video Game Displays After Shootings, Still Sells Guns

After mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, killed 31 people in less than 24 hours, Walmart is ordering its stores to take down violent video game displays. Some Republicans ― including the president ― have blamed video games for the bloodshed, despite no evidence that they influenced either attack.

“We’ve taken this action out of respect for the incidents of the past week, and this action does not reflect a long-term change in our video game assortment,” corporate spokesperson Tara House told HuffPost on Friday. “We are focused on assisting our associates and their families, as well as supporting the community, as we continue a thoughtful and thorough review of our policies.”
