REUTERS: Walmart Inc said on Tuesday it would discontinue sales of ammunition for handguns and some assault-style rifles in stores across the United States, in response to recent mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

The latest move will leave Walmart focused on weapons for hunting, including deer rifles, shotguns and related ammunition. Walmart also said it would discontinue handgun sales in Alaska, the only state where it still sells these guns, and asked customers not to openly carry firearms in its stores, even in states that allowed so-called"open carry" of guns.

On Friday, Chief Executive Officer Doug McMillon said in a letter to Walmart's associates,"As a company, we experienced two horrific events in one week, and we will never be the same."
