Report: Dick’s Sporting Goods makes new move regarding assault-style weapons

By CSA Staff - 04/19/2018
Manufacturers won’t be receiving the assault-style rifles and accessories that Dick’s Sporting Goods removed from its shelves in February.

Instead, the nation’s largest sporting goods retailer will be destroying the firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale, according to CNBC.

According to the report, a company spokesman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which first broke the story, that Dick’s was in the process of destroying the unsold weapons and accessories, "in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations."

The decision comes after the company banned the sale of assault-style rifles at its 35 Field & Stream stores, and decided to stop selling firearms and ammunition to anyone younger than 21.

Dick’s decision to ban the sales of the assault-style guns followed the Parkland, Florida, high school shooting in February.
