Walmart has raised the required age for purchase of firearms and ammunition to 21.

"We don't want to be a part of this story any longer", said Stack.

We are also removing items from our website resembling assault-style rifles, including nonlethal airsoft guns and toys. There are a total of over 160 Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops retail stores in the US and Canada. The retail giant also does not sell bump stocks, high-capacity magazines, and "similar accessories". "That's what gun shops are for".

Since the Florida shooting, gun-control supporters have called on Amazon as well as Roku, Apple Inc and others to drop the National Rifle Association's programming from their streaming services.

Earlier on Wednesday, Dick's Sporting Goods, one of the country's top sporting goods retailers, also announced it would bar gun sales to any customers under 21 years old and that it would stop selling assault-style rifles.

The CEO of Dick's Sporting Goods also said the company will no longer sell high-capacity magazines. But thoughts and prayers are not enough.

The Parkland shooter, Nikolas Cruz, bought a gun at Dick's.

"I think is a bold step and it's necessary", says Kendrick Toney, a customer at Dick's Sporting Goods. We had already removed them from all DICK'S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores. Dick's has over 675 stores in the U.S. He says his gun store sells the 2nd largest volume of guns in Mississippi.

"It's not the solution stop selling them".

A major sports retailer with stores in the Milwaukee area is changing its policy on selling guns.

CEO Ed Stack announced the decision Wednesday on ABC's Good Morning America. "As we looked at what happened down in Parkland, we were so sad and disheartened, we felt we really need to do something", Stack said. Mike Davis and his son Robert own multiple semi-automatic rifles and say people behind the guns are the reason for these deaths.

"We actually sold the shooter a shotgun in November of past year and when we looked at that and found out that we did this we had a pit in our stomach", said Stack. We did everything that the law required.
