Another, offered by third-party seller Old Glory, says “gun control is being able to hit your target.” As news reports started to emerge about the row, some of the original listings were removed, including the Tee's Plus shirt. But not everyone was negative about the products: one commenter said: “most people in the country completely agree with the sentiment of this shirt.”  This is only the latest consequence of the shootings for Walmart: last week, it removed signage around violent video games.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed but according to Axios, once source said it... Continue reading at 'Advertising Age'
