One of the nation’s largest gun retailers will soon find out if it may continue to sell sporting rifles.
Some investors have argued Wal-Mart shouldn’t be in the business of selling high-capacity magazine rifles.
Trinity Wall Street Church in New York won a case last year by arguing that selling these guns doesn’t portray community and family values.
The court held that shareholders could propose a resolution requiring Wal-Mart to review its policy on gun sales, the Washington Times reports.
Gun rights activists worry the church, who holds more than 3,000 shares in Wal-Mart, could push the retail giant to create policies that lead to gun control.
Three appellate judges will hear the appeal Wednesday at the U.S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.
