Walmart apologizes for 'Own the school year' sign over gun display

(CNN) - Walmart angered many consumers with a display that seemed to market guns as back-to-school items.

A photo of a sign over a gun case reading "Own the school year like a hero" spread like wildfire on social media.

It turns out a Walmart location in Evansville, IN, displayed the guns in this manner.

Walmart condemned the sign, calling it "truly awful" and "horrible."

Charles Crowson, a Walmart spokesman, said Wednesday the sign will be removed.
