A 20-year old Oregon man filed a lawsuit against Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods. Tyler Walter filed this case claiming the age discrimination by Walmart. According to reports, he had visited the stores to purchase a 0.22 caliber Ruger rifle, which the employee refused to give him. Walmart has opted a rule of selling the weapons only to adults aged 21 and above.

Walmart has limited the sale of weapons to people below 21 years of age because of the Florida High school massacre. In this case, a 19-year old was accused of bringing an AR-15 to school, which witnessed 17 deaths on Feb 14.

The Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods in Medford, Oregon had announced last week about restricting the sale of weapons to people below 21 years of age. However, the Oregon law permits the residents of the city in the purchase of shotguns and rifles for all those who are higher than 18 years of age.

Walter’s lawsuit says he was not aware of the new rule put forth by Dicks and Walmart when he faced age discrimination by the employee. However, Walmart and Dicks had made a nationwide announcement about their changes in their gun policies.

According to the lawsuit, Walter on Saturday again went to Walmart to buy a gun, however, faced failure yet again. This time it isn’t sure whether he knew about the new policies.

Walter has asked Walmart and Dicks to stop discriminating between the ages 18, 19 and 20. Adding to it, he has also charged them with certain unspecified punitive charges.

Looking at the stock markets, the stocks of both Dicks and Walmart knocked-off since they announced their new gun policies. And there is a bag of mixed reactions related to the new policies.

Although the lawsuit is pending in the court and the final verdict will be given by the jury if the 20-year-old guy should be entertained or Walmart should be praised for taking measures in the direction of gun control.

Whatever may be the decision of the court, in this case, the citizens are of the opinion that unless and until the federal laws aren’t strengthened, it would be very hard to stop this 20-something from acquiring guns and playing possible havoc.
