Dick’s Sporting Goods Will Stop Selling Assault-Syle Rifles

Dick's Sporting Goods is the latest major company to announce changes in the wake of the Parkland, FLA shooting.

The sports retail chain announced that it would no longer sell assault-style rifles in its stores, effective immediately.  Dick's will also no longer sell high-capacity magazines and will not sell a gun to anyone under the age of 21.

CEO Edward Stack says these policies are a direct reaction to Parkland, saying they were "disturbed and upset" by the tragedy that killed 17 people.

Records show Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz had legally purchased a gun from a Dick's store in November, although it was not the same weapon used in the shooting.
