One Handgun, 9 Murders: How American Firearms Cause Carnage Abroad

One Handgun, 9 Murders: How American Firearms Cause Carnage Abroad She came to Jamaica from the United States about four years ago, sneaking in illegally, stowed away to avoid detection. Within a few short years, she became one of the nation’s most-wanted assassins. She preyed on the parish of Clarendon, carrying out nine confirmed kills, including a double homicide outside a bar, the killing of a father at a wake and the murder of a single mother of three. Her violence was indiscriminate: She shot and nearly killed a 14-year-old girl getting ready for church. With few clues to identify her, the police named her Briana. They knew only her country of origin — the United States — where she had been virtually untraceable since 1991.

Walmart said Tuesday it will discontinue sales of some ammunition in stores across the United States in response to the mass shootings in Texas last month that killed several people.

The largest U.S. arms retailer also said it will discontinue handgun sales in Alaska, the only state where it sells them.

Walmart will stop selling short-barrel rifle ammunition such as the .223 caliber and 5.56 caliber, after clearing current stock. While this type of ammunition is commonly used in some hunting rifles, it is also used in large-capacity clips on military-style weapons, the company said.

Sales of handgun ammunition also will be discontinued, it said.

The retailer, which has been under pressure to change its policies on gun sales, said it took the action following the death of 31 people in mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, one of which took place in a Walmart store.

Just last month, Walmart asked employees at its U.S. stores to take down signs and playable demos of violent video games, but made no changes to its policy on selling firearms.

"As a company, we experienced two horrific events in one week, and we will never be the same," Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said in a letter to Walmart's associates.

The retailer, however, said it would continue to cater to hunting and sport shooting enthusiasts, selling long barrel deer rifles and shotguns.

The company added that its latest actions would reduce its market share of ammunition from around 20% to a range of about 6% to 9%.

"We believe it will likely drift toward the lower end of that range, over time, given the combination of these changes," McMillon said.
