America, Children, and Chris Evans: Chris Evans @ChrisEvans Amazing CNN@CNN Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack: "We know there's gonna be some backlash... We concluded that if these kids are brave enough to organize and do what they're doing then we should be brave enough to take this stand." cnn.it/2HS9f0c BREAKING NEWS DICK'S SPORTING GOODS WILL STOP SELLING ASSAULT-STYLE RIFLES CN Edward W. Stack Chairman and CEO, Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. M34 OPAY ll 9812Koviews DETROIT 58 HOUSTON 82° NEW DAY wretchedor30: kialessa: odinsblog: The list of businesses dropping the NRA is growing No, no, no; Dick’s take is so much bigger than that. Dick’s did not aim at the NRA, Dick’s took DIRECT ACTION, changing their own gun sale policies and calling on politicians to change the laws. (That’s the TL;DR.) Dick’s Sporting Goods has said: “We at DICK’S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones. But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you. We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that’s in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that’s taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America – our kids. Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens. We believe it’s time to do something about it. Beginning today, DICK’S Sporting Goods is committed to the following: We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK’S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field Stream stores. We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age.    We will no longer sell high capacity magazines. We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly. At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations: Ban assault-style firearms Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms   Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken seriously.Some will say these steps can’t guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again. They may be correct – but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it. We deeply believe that this country’s most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe. Sincerely,Edward W. Stack Chairman CEO DICK’S Sporting Goods” Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017.
