Walmart, Dick’s Sporting Goods Crack Down on Gun Sales

Two major U.S. retailers changed their gun sales policies Wednesday in the fallout over a Florida high school massacre.

Walmart, the country's biggest retailer, announced it is raising the age restriction for buying guns and ammunition to 21.

"We take seriously our obligation to be a responsible seller," it said in a statement. 

Walmart is also dropping toys and other items that resemble assault-style weapons from its website. The retail giant stopped selling assault-style guns in 2015 and does not sell handguns except for its stores in Alaska.

Earlier Wednesday, Dick's Sporting Goods announced it would no longer sell assault-style rifles or any gun to anyone younger than 21.

The chain went one step further and urged Congress to ban assault-style weapons and raise the minimum age.

Both Walmart and Dick's say they are committed to serving sportsmen, hunters, and the majority of gun owners whom they call law-abiding citizens.

The mass shooting of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has had an impact on the corporate world, which is seemingly taking a close look at nationwide polls that overwhelmingly favor tighter gun laws.

Egypt's Top Prosecutor Monitoring Media Ahead of Elections

Egypt's top state prosecutor has ordered his staff to closely monitor all news and social media outlets and take action against any they deem to be "hurting national interests."

In a statement issued Wednesday, Egypt's Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek said the order comes "in light of recently observed attempts by the 'forces of evil' to undermine the security and safety of the country through publishing lies and fake news through different media outlets and social media."

Prosecutors should take legal action against media outlets that disseminate "false news, statements or rumors" that could instill "terror" in society, hurt the public interest or disrupt peace. Media regulatory bodies must notify prosecutors of violations by media outlets," the statement said.

Sadek's directive is part of a larger government crackdown on the media ahead of scheduled presidential elections next month in which President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is running virtually unopposed.

The U.S.-based journalism watchdog group, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), asked Egypt to "immediately cease their intimidation campaign against independent news outlets, and let journalists report freely."

The order comes as the government is demanding that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) retract a story aired over the weekend that mentioned the case of a mother who claimed her daughter was the victim of state enforced disappearance. The young woman appeared Monday on a local TV station to refute her mother's claims.

Egypt’s State Information Service, which regulates foreign media in the country, has called on the BBC to retract its story or face a government boycott.

BBC is standing by its reporting.
