Wal-Mart Stores Inc, the world’s largest retailer, unveiled plans on Monday to film its gun sales in the United States and create a computerized log of purchases in a bid to stop guns falling into the wrong hands.
Wal-Mart, which is the largest seller of firearms in the United States, agreed a 10-point code, which also includes rigid inventory controls, with a bipartisan coalition of Mayors Against Illegal Guns led by New York’s Michael Bloomberg.
The retailer said it will develop a first-of-its-kind computerized crime gun trace log that will flag purchases by customers who have previously bought guns later recovered in crimes.
“Wal-Mart currently uses a strong point of sale system,” said J.P. Suarez, senior vice president and chief compliance officer of Wal-Mart. “This code is a way for us to fine-tune the things we’re already doing and further strengthen our standards. We hope other retailers will join us.”
