In wake of the recent Parkland school shooting, Dick’s Sporting Goods announced it has stopped selling assault-style rifles.
The company will no longer sell high-capacity magazine or any gun to anyone under 21 years of age, regardless of local laws.
The retailer is one of few companies taking a firm stance on gun control, while many others are issuing carefully worded statements.
CEO, and son of the founder, Edward Stack said,”we’re going to take a stand and step up and tell people our view.”
As one of the nation’s most prominent gun retailers, Mr. Stack understands that there will be backlash to the decision.
