Dick's Sporting Goods Stops Selling Military-Style Firearms

Major retailer Dick's Sporting Goods announced this morning that they will no longer sell military-style, high capacity rifles.  They will continue to sell rifles, shotguns and related equipment for hunting and target shooting.  Importantly, they also sell a variety of gun safes, lock boxes and locks for safe storage of firearms.  Thank you to Dick's for stepping forward!

There is solid reasoning behind this decision.  These weapons and their high capacity, fast reload magazines are specifically designed for combat soldiers not sportsmen and women.
