Dick's Will Stop Selling Automatic Rifles Following Florida Tragedy


Dick's Sporting Goods said Wednesday it would stop selling assault-style weapons in its stores. The chain also banned the weapons after the December 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Dick's says the ban is permanent this time. Dick's Sporting Goods said Wednesday that it would stop selling assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines in its stores, in response to the school shooting Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff members. Several months after banning the guns, Dick's started selling them again at its chain called Field & Stream, which specializes in hunting and fishing products.

This weapon has become increasingly popular in the US, since the 1994 federal weapons ban expired in 2004. Suspect Travis Reinking remains on the run. Reinking moved to Nashville from Illinois in fall 2017 and worked in construction. This wasn't his first run in with the law.

  • Major Retailer To Destroy Assault Rifles

    Dick's Sporting Goods decided to stop selling assault-style weapons at its stores, right after the mass shooting at a Florida high school earlier this year.

The company told CNN, "We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change.
