Retailers change gun sales policies in wake of Florida shooting

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Several national retail chains with a presence in Fairbanks say they're changing their policies on gun sales in the wake of a Florida school shooting.
Fred Meyer and Wal-Mart issued statements late this week saying they won't sell guns to anyone under the age of 21, and Fred Meyer won't sell assault-style weapons at its Alaska locations, which were the only stores in the chain where such firearms are sold.
Outdoor retailer REI is going further - it's suspending orders from gear conglomerate 'Vista Outdoor', which owns a gun manufacturer as well as brands such as Bell and Camelbak, because the company hasn't taken steps toward a plan of action to help combat mass shootings.
