In February, it said it was “disappointed” by Dick’s decision to stop selling assault-style weapons and raising the purchasing age to 21.
Dick’s also shared last month that it would destroy the weapons it will no longer sell — a strong statement about its attitude toward this inventory. Mossberg & Sons Inc., announced in a press release that it would no longer do business with Dick’s.
