February 28th, 2018, 9:14 AM
Dick's Sporting Goods, a chain with 10 outlets in Metro Detroit, no longer sells assault-style rifles. It also won't see guns to anyone under 21.
It also stops stocking high-capacity magazines.
"We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly," adds the firm, which has 715 U.S. stores and also states:
We at Dick's Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland," the chain said in a statement. " Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones."
But thoughts and prayers are not enough.
We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country.
We have heard you. The nation has heard you.
