Dick’s Sporting Goods Destroying Unsold ‘Assault-Style Rifles’ and ‘High Capacity’ Magazines
Dick’s Sporting Goods is destroying all the unsold “assault-style rifles” and “high capacity” magazines which they pulled from shelves following the February 14 Parkland school shooting.
On February 28, 2018, Breitbart News reported Dick’s announcement that they would no longer sell “assault-style rifles” or “high capacity” magazines. Those items were subsequently pulled from displays and Fox News reports that Dick’s has decided to destroy them rather than return them to their respective manufacturers.
A spokesperson from Dick’s said, “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”
