Dick’s Sporting Goods in Maine, NH Stop Selling Assault Rifles, Up Gun-Buying Age to 21

After the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, Dick’s Sporting Goods, one of the largest sporting goods retailers in the country, has stopped selling assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and has raised the age to purchase a gun to 21.

This isn’t the first time either. After the Sandy Hook shooting, Dick’s stopped selling assault style rifles. However, they are now removing them from the Field & Stream stores.

Edward Stack, the company’s CEO, said this move is permanent, no matter what the backlash will be. Part of the reason for this decision was finding out that the shooter in Parkland bought a gun at the retailer, although it was not the particular AR-15 used in the massacre.

The Dick’s Sporting Goods in Maine are in Augusta, Bangor, South Portland and Topsham. The stores in New Hampshire are in Concord, Keene, Nashua, Portsmouth, Salem and Seabrook.
