Walmart to Attend White House Meeting on Gun Control

Originally declined invitation


After initially declining an invitation to attend, Wal-Mart announced Wednesday that it will participate in a meeting with Vice President Joseph Biden's gun violence task force.

The nation's largest retailer, which had sent representatives to meet with the vice president's staff earlier this week, originally said that executives couldn't attend Biden's meeting Thursday because they were obligated to be at monthly sales meetings at its headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.
