Dick's Sporting Goods to Stop Selling Guns at 125 Stores

March 13, 2019

In the wake of the horrific 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Dick's Sporting Goods announced that it would no longer sell firearms to buyers under 21 and would remove all assault weapons from its shelves. It also stopped selling firearms altogether in 10 test stores, and on Tuesday announced that it would increase the number of stores who won't sell guns to 125. The Wall Street Journal reports that Dick’s will remove firearms in markets where the hunting category underperforms, and that the 10 stores which haven't been selling guns saw sales rise last quarter.
