Dicks Sporting Goods announced on Monday it will destroy all of the unsold firearms it pulled off store shelves in February after the deadly Parkland school shooting.
The sports retailer decided to destroy the assault-style rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. On Feb. 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh-based company announced it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21. It was not immediately clear how many firearms will be destroyed.
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, a spokesperson from Dicks Sporting Goods told the media outlet. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.
The rifles will be demolished at distribution centers and then delivered to a salvage company to be recycled.

That’s like a woman having her tubes tied because the woman down the street has had too many kids.
I always look to see if an article has been posted. This is from Fox News and doesn’t appear to have been posted already. It may be the same subject but it isn’t from the same source.
I’m curious. Is this meant to say I shouldn’t have posted this article?
Can you say Cabella?
Haha! Excellent analogy!
That will show those guns we mean business.
Dick’s is publicly traded. I wonder how shareholders feel about their investment dollars being destroyed?
“Im curious. Is this meant to say I shouldnt have posted this article?”
If a subject is written in a hundred websites should we have a hundred different threads?
Post anyway.....some are just overly sensitive.
Stupidity at its finest.
Rare that happens.......double threads hurts no one.
For the Kids.
“Stupidity at its finest.”
I agree. The hell with Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Different source and well past the time limit for duplicates too. You’re good.
For some reason this really burns me up.
I wish there was one around so I could boycott it.
As long as it's not an exact dup you're good to go.
Different sources of the same story often have additional or different info and not everyone catches every interesting story posted.
I didn't see the first post on this story but I saw this one.
Great marketing strategy. Lose more customers.
