The company joined retail heavyweights Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods in changing policies in the wake of the Florida school massacre.

L.L. Bean said in a statement late Thursday that it will no longer sell guns or ammunition to anyone under the age of 21.

The retailer does not carry assault-style firearms, high-capacity firearms, bump stocks or handguns of any kind.

Retail heavyweights Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods have also taken steps to restrict gun sales.

The announcements from the major national retailers came as students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, returned to class Wednesday for the first time since a teenager killed 17 students and educators with an AR-15 rifle on Feb. 14.
