As mass shootings have become commonplace in American schools, Walmart has changed its stance on gun offerings. In 2019, Walmart announced that it would no longer sell "short-barrel rifle ammunition," along with handgun ammunition. The company still sells shotguns and long barrel deer rifles, though, CNN reported at the time.

Handgun ammunition isn't the only thing Walmart stopped selling in 2019. The retailer also stopped carrying e-cigarettes, citing "the growing federal, state, and local regulatory complexity and uncertainty regarding e-cigarettes."

It's not all men's magazines that are banned from Walmart—just the more suggestive ones. In 2003, Walmart stopped selling Maxim, Stuff, and FHM. The latter two magazines have folded, but don't expect to find Maxim on Walmart shelves.

Walmart isn't selling Odwalla—because no one is selling Odwalla. Coca-Cola discontinued the beverage line this summer.
