Wednesday, February 28, 2018

In one of the strongest stands taken by corporate America, Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced it will no longer sell assault-style rifles or high-capacity magazines.  The company is also urging lawmakers to enact gun reform measures.  CEO Edward Stack acknowledged that there would be a range of public reactions.  “The whole hunting business is an important part of our business, and we know there is going to be backlash on this,” said Mr. Stack. “But we’re willing to accept that.  If the kids in Parkland are being brave enough to stand up and do this, we can be brave enough to stand up with them.”
