Dick's Sporting Goods Will Stop Selling Assault-Style Weapons

posted by Gary Cee -

Dick's Sporting Goods announced this morning that it will no longer sell assault-style weapons.  The chain store will also stop selling guns to anyone under the age of 21.  High-capacity magazines will also be removed from the shelves.  

"We don't want to be part of this any longer," says Edward Stack, CEO of Dick's.

The store anticipates a mixed response to the new policy.  I, for one, think it's a great idea and I'm happy to hear this news this morning.  

Dick's Sporting Goods has locations in Middletown, Stroudsburg, Wayne and Rockaway.
