Dick's CEO Edward Stack says the decision was a direct result of the high school shooting in Florida and the rallying cry from the kids at the school after witnessing the tragedy.
"We dont want to be a part of this any longer," says Stack.

Didn’t they end “assault rifle” sales in 2012 after Sandy Hook???
Are they double dipping in the leftist media outrage corporate marketing value meal deal program?
Never shopped there anyway, but I’ll never darken their door going forward.
Anything used to attack someone is an “assault” weapon...
There is way too much knee jerk reaction to things in this country....
POLL: Who is most responsible for the Parkland shooting?
Im not sure
They haven’t sold AR type weapons in years. Just grabbing a little free virtue-signaling publicity. F them.
Living up to their name.
They left out the sheriff and the school district
This story has been posted about nine times today.
You’re suggesting they see this as positive advertisement?
I have never been in one of their stores, nearest one is 40 miles away, but I will now make a conscious effort to never go into their stores in the future.
As well as Delta, United and all the other liberal puppets that have broken off their business with the NRA, when the NRA has had nothing to do with any of this.
The NRA will survive, but will these companies?...................
Shop here instead
Dick’s is not exactly a go-to destination for anything anyway.
So get rid of the knives, shovels, traps, snares, anything that could maim, hurt or kill...just close your "Sporting Goods Store" down Mr. Stack....the NRA had nothing to do with the killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School or any of the other prior school shooting.
Shame on Mr. Stack, Delta and others for impugning the NRA....Cowards all for letting the social media bring you to your knees fearing the loss of a little revenue when you should stand along side the NRA, a patriotic organization that does more for safety and weapon education than anyone.
Ford, Jeep, Chrysler, BMW, Chevrolet, etc....these and other cars kill or is it their drivers.........
Boycotting DICKS is not enough.
I will no longer purchase any manufacturers product that is distributed through DICKS.
Under-Armor, North Face, YETI, all have products designed specifically for the shooting community. They can stand with us or continue to distribute their products through traitors. I’m not buying anything from them until they pull their DICKS.
I am so stealing that!
Dick’s never did sell assault rifles.
