Walmart and the AR-15
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
George Zornick, Washington reporter for The Nation, talks about his latest article, “How Walmart Helped Make the Newtown Shooter's AR-15 the Most Popular Assault Weapon in America.” It’s a look at how Walmart became the top seller of firearms and ammunition nationwide. As his story was going to press, Walmart pulled the weapon from its website, but it's still on shelves in about 1,700 stores nationwide. The article appears in the January 7-14 issue of The Nation.
