Protestors Urge Walmart To Ban Assault Weapons Sales

Scores of protestors, some carrying signs, turned out for a rally at a Walmart in Danbury Tuesday.  They were among the estimated 300-thousand nationwide who have signed petitions calling for an end of the sales of assault weapons in the department store.

The delivery of those signatures occurs a month from the date 20 first graders and six educators were fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School in neighboring Newtown.  Among those who turned out was Christine McGee of Norwalk.  She said she’s amazed the the gun section is adjacent to the toy department in the Norwalk Walmart.

The rally was organized by the group SumOfUs.org and attended by those belonging to local groups.

Danbury Walmart store manager John Ruggieri accepted the signatures, not commenting on specifics but offering to pass the word.
