Top Stories

Dick’s Sporting Goods has destroyed millions of dollars worth of assault rifles.

The CEO Ed Stack says the company turned the weapons into scrap metal.

The move comes after Dick’s made the decision last year to stop carrying the rifles following the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.

The company sold the shooter a shotgun.

Dick’s also said it would stop selling high capacity magazines and raised its gun purchasing from age 18 to 21.
