Walmart has apologized for a display inside of one of its stores that appeared to showcase a collection of guns as back-to-school items.

The company described the display as "truly awful" and said Wednesday that it is "working diligently" to find out which store featured the display and ensure that it is taken down, according to CNN Money.

A photo showing a glass case full of guns with a sign directly above it reading "Own the school year like a hero" went viral on Reddit before making its way to other social media platforms. On Twitter, users demanded the retailer to "explain this" and asked, "What are you suggesting?"
