DICK’s Sporting Goods announced their decision to stop selling all “assault-style” weapons in their stores and banning sales to anyone under 21.
The corporate statement was sent in response to the teen-aged gun control activists after the Parkland high school shooting.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones. But thoughts and prayers are not enough,” the statement read.
The popular sporting goods retailer said they will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age, and will no longer sell “assault-style” weapons in their stores and their Field & Stream stores. They also banned the sales of “high capacity magazines.”
