Schumer asks retailers to suspend sales of certain types of guns
Albany (WTNY) -- New York Senator Charles Schumer is calling on major retailers to temporarily suspend sales of assault style rifles.
Schumer wants WalMart and other major retailers to voluntarily cooperate with the moratorium until Congress is able to consider gun control legislation. Since the Sandy Hook Elementary School killings in Connecticut last month, the sale of these types of weapons have increased substantially, as many people are buying them up on fears they will not be available for much longer.
