ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Wal-Mart 's across the country are about to get a whole lot more interesting. According to Wal-Mart, who announced late Wednesday, the company will slowly begin raising the age to buy a gun to 21. The move follows Dick's Sporting Goods, who, also announced Wednesday that customers will be required to prove that they're over the age of 21 to buy all firearms and anything that goes with them.
Both decisions present a major change in attitude by the private sector in the United States, as, people are demanding better responsibility at the hands of those who actually sell guns to begin with. Wal-Mart actually stopped selling assault-like and AR-15 rifles in 2015 due to what they say "was low demand".
