Walmart Joins Dick's In Raising Age Restriction to 21 On Guns

Walmart Joins Dick's In Raising Age Restriction to 21 On Guns”

The announcement, though heralded by some, drew scrutiny, given that Dick's discontinued sales of assault-style rifles from its stores after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in 2012. But it could have been.

Members of our industry believe that unauthorized individuals should never have access to any firearm, of any kind, at any time.

"As long as we are meeting all local and federal requirements, we are good to go, and we watch that every day", Sheehan told the Herald.

■ Continue to ban the sale of bump stocks, which allow semiautomatic weapons to fire more rapidly.

Legal experts said they saw no likely challenges to Dick's decision to stop selling assault-style rifles. But it announced Wednesday morning that it will no longer sell that type of firearm at any of the 35 Field and Stream stores it owns.

L.L. Bean said in a statement late Thursday that it will no longer sell guns or ammunition to anyone under the age of 21.

Also on Wednesday, a teacher in the state of Georgia was arrested after barricading himself in a classroom and firing a handgun.

Mccullar isn't the only Dick's employee who has apparently quit his job in the aftermath of the retailer's decision to stop selling assault-style rifles and guns to customers under the age of 21.

"(Dick's is) listening to the young people affected by this", said Joan Dupnick, a shopper at Dick's Tempe store, one of nine in the state. "BATFE, they set the age limits for this stuff". We do not have that in Alabama.

President Donald Trump has expressed support for raising the minimum age to purchase firearms as a way to help reduce gun violence and deaths in the US. Cruz, a former student at Stoneman Douglas, is accused of using an AR-15 assault-style weapon to carry out the killing. "It's Armalite rifle, the company that designed it back in the 1950s".

After the Parkland shooting, Dick's Sporting Goods reviewed its gun sale records and discovered that in November of previous year, the company sold Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz a shotgun.

"I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health".

"We did everything by the book, we did everything that the law required, and still he was able to buy a gun", Stack said. "I would hope I could trust you with a gun and a tank", said Nicholson.

The announcements were met with mixed reactions on social media. As of 7 p.m. Wednesday, 62 percent of responders agreed and 37 percent disagreed.

"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", the statement said. "They're just going to push everybody to Cabela's and Bass Pro", he added, referring to two Dick's competitors that are now owned by the same corporation.
