Walmart Employees Walkout Over Guns

From Bearing Arms:

Roughly 40 employees walked out of a Walmart e-commerce office in California on Wednesday to protest the retail giant’s gun sale policy after a deadly mass shooting at one of its stores in El Paso, Texas.
According to The Washington Post, the employees left their offices for about 15 minutes and gathered outside the building, where they took a moment of silence.
Other company locations in New York City and Portland, Ore., also reportedly saw employees take similar actions on Wednesday to call on the company to change its policies.

Notice no employees who work at a physical store walked out. Only people who work behind a computer and on the coasts.
