No More Gun Sales at State Wal Marts

Sponsored by:

If you want to buy a gun in California you can´t do it at Wal Mart anymore.

The retail giant agreed to stop selling guns in the state immediately, following nearly 500 violations of state firearms laws in several Central Valley stores.

California Attorney General Bill Lockyer announced the agreement, saying store inspections in Turlock, Merced, Madera, Los Banos and Sacramento revealed 490 violations, including selling guns to felons. Lockyer said store employees also released guns to customers before the 10 day waiting period and background checks were completed.

Others failed to verify the identify of buyers through thumbprints and scanning driver´s licenses. There are 118 Wal Mart outlets across the state.
