Dick’s Sporting Goods Suspends Sales of Semi-Automatic Rifles

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

CNN-   Dick’s Sporting Goods is pulling certain kinds of semi-automatic rifles off its shelves nationwide.   In a statement to C-N-N, the store says it’s also removing all guns from its store nearest to Newtown, Connecticut.
The retailer says the change comes out of respect for the victims and families of last week’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.  20 kids and six adults died at the hands of a gunman carrying an assault rifle and handguns.

It’s unclear how long the store will keep the suspension in place.
