Dick's Sporting Goods to stop selling guns in 125 of its stores

By  | 

(WCJB) -- Dick's Sporting Goods has decided to stop selling guns in some of its stores.

The retailer's CEO made the announcement today, saying it will pull hunting gear from 125 stores starting sometime around August.

Dick's says it will replace the firearms with other sporting goods.

Last year, Dick's announced it would ban sales of assault-style weapons after it was revealed the school shooter in Parkland had bought a gun from one of their stores.

The company also stopped selling high-capacity magazines and guns to anyone under the age of 21.
