Walgreens pulls Easter baskets with guns

CHICAGO, March 16 (UPI)-- A Chicago priest who complained about retailers selling Easter baskets with toy guns praised Walgreens for removing them.
The Rev. Michael Pfleger of the city's South Side began berating stores for selling Easter baskets with plastic water guns or Nerf dart shooters after a resident showed him the product, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
Pfleger wrote a letter to Kmart, where the basket was first discovered, demanding the store remove the baskets from shelves.
"We took into consideration the feedback ... and we made a decision not to include them for next year," said Kmart spokeswoman Shannelle Armstrong.
Walgreens decided to pull the baskets.
"I think it shows the responsibility of Walgreens and irresponsibility of Kmart," Pfleger said. "If Kmart knows it's not a good thing to do in the future, they should do it now. But for them it's all about money."
