Four men entered a Walmart store in Cordova, Tennessee, went to the gun department, broke into a display case, and stole six AR-15 assault rifles "plus another weapon" and escaped.
The guns have not been recovered.
From an article:
According to an incident report, what investigators describe as six "assault" rifles were swiped from one of the glass displays, plus a seventh weapon.

Police identify one of the stolen weapons as the same model Bushmaster brand rifle used in the 2012 Sandy Hook School massacre in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six adults were murdered.
"I have a child and don't want anything to happen to my child, and that means guns are just going to be out on the street," said resident Nikenya Rudd.
Walmart continues to sell assault rifles, and is the leading retail seller of guns in the world.
