NEWTOWN, Conn. (CNN) Dicks Sporting Goods, one of the largest sporting goods retailers in the world, says it has removed all guns from its store nearest to Newtown, Connecticut, and is suspending the sale of certain kinds of semi-automatic rifles from its chains nationwide.
The move was made out of respect for the victims and families of last weeks Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting during this time of national mourning, the store said in a statement Tuesday morning.
We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy, the statement said.
It was unclear how long the store will keep the suspension in place for the guns, known as modern sporting rifles.

The Dick’s sporting goods store in my area sucks-——I shopped there once—will never go there again.
And it is unclear how long I will suspend my buying from Dick’s.
I never buy anything from them anyways so I don’t care what those yuppies do.
I will never set foot in another Dick’s ‘Sporting Goods’ store from this point on.
I’m cutting up my Dick’s reward card as soon as I’m finished this post and will never shop there again.
How are they getting rid of them? If throwing away, I’d like to know where. If simply selling at their price to another gun dealer, they are simply still on the market. If having a fire sale, I’d like to add another two or three to my collection of AR’s! Anyway, I’ve spent a lot of money at Dick’s. No more!
I wonder if a similar move by violent video game makers, violent Hollywood movies & violent jihad by muslims?
How about 9mm hand guns, the actual guns used in the murders, while the “assault rifle” was safely in the trunk of the murderers car?
Has Dick’s quit selling them too?
Sandy Hook was a false flag. It should be obvious to anyone by now.
Now you know how dick’s got its name.
They just banned the scary looking ones.
“I wanna be part of the story tooooooooooooooo!!!”
Was the rifle really in the car? Did the shooter take three guns or four from his home? Facts are elusive things when our only source of information is a corrupt and incompetent media.
This reminds me of the “Shut up and sing” meme with entertainers.
What they are doing is ticking off over half of their potential clientele. Then the second thing to think about is “WHO” really does shop there. Is it yuppies who stay home or is it people who actively enjoy the great outdoors?
Only they know for sure, but if they keep this up then they are seriously looking going bankrupt in the fairly near future.
Yep. 7/11 should stop selling bananas and oranges. It will have the same effect.
I buy all my stuff from two local shops. Can’t stand the corporate stores. Plus I don’t have any guns since I lost them all in the boating accident a few years ago.
