VIDEO: Walmart raises age to buy guns

Walmart has raised the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21. This change comes after the massacre at a Florida high school reopened a fierce gun control debate. Walmart said that “in light of recent events” it was raising the age for purchasers of firearms. It's also raised the age from 18 to 21 for the purchase of ammunition. The retailer is also removing items from its website that resemble assault rifles.
