Campaigners demanding that the retail giant stop selling assault weapons


(Reuters)—Gun-control advocates are planning a rally outside a Walmart store near Newtown, Connecticut, on Tuesday to demand the largest U.S. retailer stop selling assault weapons.

The rally is planned for a Walmart in a Danbury shopping center, which is eight miles from the Newtown elementary school where a gunman opened fire on December 14, killing 20 first graders and six educators.
