It’s only been a week since a gun manufacturer in the United States was found to have a policy that prohibited the sale of certain accessories that could be used to fire a gun, including the gun itself.
The gunmaker, Cabela’s, was ordered to stop selling the gun after it was revealed to be incompatible with the U.S. government’s gun-control regulations.
Cabelas CEO Steve Stadtmueller said the company’s policy would be reviewed by its lawyers and will be updated when it becomes clear that it is compliant with the law.
The decision was made by the Justice Department in the wake of the mass shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
It comes amid heightened scrutiny over gun control policies in the U, where at least 13 people were killed and several others wounded by a gunman who opened fire in a church last week.
In addition to banning the sale and possession of the AR-15 assault rifle and other high-powered rifles, the Obama administration also took action to prevent states from allowing people to carry concealed weapons.
