Wal-Mart Being Pressured To Stop Selling Sporting Rifles

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.
