Ex-Toronto mayor causes gun magazine to be pulled from Shoppers newsstands

Following the Florida school mass shooting, former Toronto mayor David Miller complained to Shoppers Drug Mart about a gun lifestyle magazine offered on its newsstands (one of the most important single-copy outlets in Canada). His tweet, as reported by the Toronto Star:
“Really @ShopprsDrugMart , promoting semi-automatic weapons at our local shop? How about you stop.” Miller tweeted about Recoil magazine.
Three days later, the title was pulled from the racks and Shoppers tweeted back:
“Hello David, thanks for sharing your concerns," the company said. "After hearing about this, we've decided to remove this issue from our stores. We are working on pulling all copies in circulation and will not receive any further shipments of this publication."
