Walmart is making sure you see nothing violent in its stores.
The retail chain sent instructions for staff to remove marketing material and unplug video game consoles that show violent games. No violence is to be shown on screens in Walmart’s electronics departments. Employees were also ordered to turn off hunting season videos in the sporting goods department.
No videos or video games that depict violence will be removed from shelves and there is no change in the company’s policy regarding gun sales. The change comes after a mass shooting at an El Paso, Texas, store that killed 22 people.
