USA Today reports:
Kroger said it will stop selling magazines that feature assault rifles as part of a tightening of its policies in the wake of the Parkland mass shooting and growing national anger over gun violence.
The Cincinnati-based supermarket retailer said the new policy is being phased in now across its national chain. Kroger didn’t name specific titles, but periodicals that have featured assault weapons include: Guns & Ammo, Tactical Life and Recoil.
Fred Meyer, a subsidiary of Kroger Co., previously announced it would stop selling firearms and ammunition at its superstores. The chain said it made the decision after “evaluating changing customer preferences.” It also cited a “softening consumer demand” for such products.
