As a safety precaution in response to the current civil unrest, Walmart Inc. has removed all guns and ammunition from the shelves of its US stores this week.

As per the media sources, the company wrote to the store managers and asked them to pull down the ammunition due to the current unrest in isolated areas of the country and out of an abundance of caution.

The retail giant intends to avert potential theft of firearms if stores are broken into, said a statement from the company.

The company took similar measures in June when there were nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd.

The retail chain also mentioned that customers can still purchase guns and ammo upon request, even when they are no longer on the sales floor on display.

Walmart moved to reduce its market share of ammunition from around 20% to a range of about 6%-9%.
