Walmart condemns photo of guns display

Piers Morgan Accuses Walmart of Selling Guns to Kids After Viral Photo

It's back-to-school shopping time for a majority of the country, which means people around the US are streaming into places like Target and Meijer to scoop up their pens, pencils, notebooks, and Trapper Keepers.

This is not the first time Walmart has run into trouble with marketing mishaps. But the Post later spoke with the woman behind the initial photograph, who confirmed to the publication that the picture was taken at the IN store.

Online outrage is being directed at Wal-Mart for a gun display at one of its stores, after a photo went viral on Wednesday of a sign that hung above it.

His cell phone and the suicide note which was kept in a Nike bag was recovered from Room No. 742 of Hotel Leela Palace in Delhi. He secured 14th rank in 2012 Union Public Service Examination (UPSC), which is considered the toughest exam in India .

Walmart initially denied that the store location was in Evansville.

Walmart responded to some of the comments by calling the display "truly awful" and "horrible".

But, that statement was amended by a company spokesman who told the Times that there had been a miscommunication and that the company was still trying to find out where the photo was taken.

August 8: Meanwhile, North Korea successfully creates nuclear warhead to fit inside missiles. The Strategic Command determines if the missile poses a threat to USA satellites in space.

Leeanna May told the Post she took the photo and that she was in Evansville when she did it. Or, more to the point, a display case full of guns and rifles. "... People don't seem to honestly care". It's still unclear if the sign was placed there by a customer or an employee as a "joke".

Walmart issued an apology following the incident, saying through a spokesperson that 'What's seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores'. "We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened".

Guam a pawn in US-North Korea confrontations - academic
It appears that the much-hyped threat to possibly obliterate at least a part of Guam may be a preemptive strike. North Korea is threatening to launch weapons in the direction of Guam, the closest US Territory to North Korea.
