Two major U.S. retailers changed their gun sales policies Wednesday in the fallout over a Florida high school massacre.

佛罗里达高中枪击案发后,美国两大零售连锁店星期三调整了它们的枪支出售政策。

Walmart, the country's biggest retailer, announced it is raising the age restriction for buying guns and ammunition to 21.

美国最大的零售商沃尔玛宣布,购置枪支和弹药的最低年龄为21岁。

"We take seriously our obligation to be a responsible seller," it said in a statement.

沃尔玛在声明中说:“我们做为负责的销售商,十分重视肩负的义务。”

Walmart is also dropping toys and other items that resemble assault-style weapons from its website. The retail giant stopped selling assault-style guns in 2015 and does not sell handguns except for its stores in Alaska.

沃尔玛还撤下了网站上看似攻击性武器的玩具等商品。沃尔玛从2015年就停止出售攻击性枪支,除了在阿拉斯加的零售店外,沃尔玛也不在其它地方出售手枪。

Earlier Wednesday, Dick's Sporting Goods announced it would no longer sell assault-style rifles or any gun to anyone younger than 21.

星期三早上时候,迪克体育用品公司宣布,不再向不满21岁的顾客出售任何枪支。

The chain went one step further and urged Congress to ban assault-style weapons and raise the minimum age.

该公司还敦促美国国会禁止攻击性武器,并提高购买武器弹药的法定最低年龄。

Both Walmart and Dick's say they are committed to serving sportsmen, hunters, and the majority of gun owners whom they call law-abiding citizens.

沃尔玛和迪克体育用品公司都表示,他们致力于继续为运动员、猎人和大多数枪支拥有者服务,因为这些人是遵纪守法的公民。

The mass shooting of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has had an impact on the corporate world, which is seemingly taking a close look at nationwide polls that overwhelmingly favor tighter gun laws.

佛罗里达州帕克兰市的玛乔丽·斯通曼·道格拉斯高中2月14日发生的导致17名学生和教职工丧生的枪击案,让商界受到了很大影响,全国性支持加强枪支立法的民调结果让它们极为关注。
