Retailers start to pull some rifles from shelves

Dick's Sporting Goods and Wal-Mart suspend some gun sales after last week's shooting in Connecticut.

If you click on the "modern sporting rifles" section of Dick's Sporting Goods' website, you won't see much. The section is blank, a white block of nothing, because Dick's isn't selling those rifles anymore.

The sporting goods retailer has suspended sales of its semi-automatic guns nationwide. It's also taken all of its guns off the shelves at its store near Newtown, Conn., where a 20-year-old gunman opened fire at an elementary school last week, killing 20 children and six educators.

The company said it took those actions out of respect for the victims and their families in this time of national mourning.

...

Wal-Mart has stopped showing the Bushmaster Patrolman's Carbine M4A3 rifle on its website as well, according to The Nation. There is no word whether Wal-Mart will stop selling the weapon at its stores, however. But Wal-Mart's site still shows that it's selling other guns at its stores, including the Sig Sauer M400.

The Bushmaster is prominently displayed at the local Walmart here in East Texas in the revolving rack. The salesman said they just put in an order for 25 more and have two in stock. He said they sold 17 since the shooting and are out of .223.

As far as I knew, I thought Adam Lanza was not able to purchase any guns legally...???
 Quoting: Laura Bow


Here's this article that's trashing Dick's though...

The gun shop where the Newtown shooter tried to buy a rifle three days before embarking on his massacre is having an ammunition sale.

Dick’s Sporting Goods in Danbury, Connecticut is selling rounds as cheap as 5 cents a shot with 50 percent discounts on a range of bullets.

The prices of all ‘Big Game’ rifle ammunition as well as shotgun shells have been slashed.

So now we have to put a ban on Dicks Sporting Good? All Amerikkkans do is find cop outs and pseudo 'solutions'. Is everybody just gonna fold over and take it in the ass now just not to offend anybody? I find it EXTREMELY offensive that after a shooting took place that now they want to make it harder to us citizens to defend ourselves by removing guns from stores.

Yes, Dicks should be banned. And Walmart. Nobody needs this reactionary bullshit.

This. I can at least understand them being quiet, but I thought they pulled their Facebook and Twitter pages too?! That makes it look like they are somehow tied to it or guilty or something...


NRA's Facebook page shuttered, Twitter activity halted

It looks like the National Rifle Association is backing away from social media as the U.S. grapples with the Newtown school massacre and gun control.

Walmart announced Monday that the chain is pulling the Bushmaster Rifle from its web store, a military-style weapon similar to that used by 20-year-old Adam Lanza in the mass shooting that killed 20 children and six staff members Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management said on Tuesday that it would immediately sell its controlling stake in the Freedom Group, the company that makes the rifle that was used to kill 20 schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., on Friday. “It is apparent that the Sandy Hook tragedy was a watershed event that has raised the national debate on gun control to an unprecedented level,” Cerberus said in a statement.

Right Walmart has only pulled it off their web store, but I wonder if they'll end up removing it phyiscally from stores next as they decided this on Monday, before Dick's decided to pull them completely.

Just called my local Wal Mart too. The sporting goods manager told me they had pulled certain AR rifles from the web store. They were currently still selling them at the store, but you had to ask for them as they were pulled from the display cases.

Dick's Sporting Goods is the worst store I have ever been it. They sell these big bench presses manufactured in China, (with steel from 911?) that are so poorly engineered, they collapse if any heavy weight is used. Luckily, they took the pos back, but they still sell the same pos models-they have no rigid support and they all will break...Bought some iron weights that totaled 58 dollars and the cashier rings me up for 120...for rubber bumpers with steel bushing...I'm like.."Uh, as you can see, they are solid iron."
Certainly would not even consider buying a weapon there...I use the local gun shop, that is staffed by experts.
