Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Dick's Sporting Goods will no longer sell assault-style firearms, will ban high-capacity magazines and will not sell any guns to people younger than 21, the company announced Wednesday, a significant move for the retail giant in the midst of renewed calls for national gun reform. Chief executive Edward W. Stack made the announcement during an appearance on "Good Morning America", as well as through a company statement that said "thoughts and prayers are not enough" in the wake of America's latest mass shooting. Two weeks ago, a gunman killed 17 people, most of them teenagers, in Parkland, Fla., with an AR-15 that was legally purchased. The alleged shooter, Nikolas Cruz, bought a shotgun from a Dick's store in November, Stack said during the television interview.

Although the weapon purchased at the Dick's outlet was not the one used in the massacre, Stack said his company was moved to act.

Good for them, if they hold to it this time. And if Dick's can figure out what constitutes an assault rifle, surely others can.
