More than 85,000 people have signed an Online Petition asking Walmart to stop selling assault rifles.
The petition urges Walmart to "stop selling military-grade assault rifles and the types of high-capacity magazines used in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting."
Shortly after the shooting in Newtown, CT, Walmart pulled the listing for its Bushmaster AR-15 rifle from its online listings, but has still sold the weapon in more than 1,700 Walmart stores around the country.
The petition needs less than 5,000 more signatures to reach its goal of 90,000.
