Dicks Sporting Goods Takes Stand On Gun Control Issue
Dicks Sporting Goods is taking what they call "common sense reform" into their own hands by issuing their own regulations.
Dicks Sporting Goods is not waiting for the government to issue new gun laws. They feel compelled to implement their own rules effective immediately. They have permanently ended all sales of assault-style rifles, you can no longer purchase high capacity magazines and must be 21 years old to buy any gun. The company says these actions are in direct response to the Flordia shootings.
The NY Times reports that this is not the first time Dicks has made changes after a school massacre. In 2012, after the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Dicks removed assault-style rifles from its main retail stores, But a few months later began carrying its firearms at its outdoor and hunting retail chain Field & Stream.
