One of the largest grocery store chains in the nation says it will stop selling guns and ammunition to people under 21.

Kroger said its decision is in response to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The company sells weapons and ammunition at its Fred Meyer stores.

Kroger joins the ranks of Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart. Dick's said Wednesday it's raising the minimum age for firearm sales and said it's done selling assault-style weapons.

Walmart said it won't sell firearms and ammunition to anyone under 21.
