Dick's Sporting Goods is not just refusing to sell any more rifles, but they are destroying the ones that remain unsold.

Courtesy of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:  

When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. 

Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. 

“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.” 

The so-called assault-style rifles will be destroyed at the company’s distribution centers and the parts sent to a salvage company to be recycled, the Findlay-based retailer added. The company did not say how much merchandise would be included. 

Personally I think they should invite Ted Nugent to observe the destruction of these metal penis extenders, and film him as he cries uncontrollably.

I'd watch that in cable.

They may not be dominating the news cycle anymore, but clearly those Parkland students continue to have an impact.

    Astoundingly enough, there was a rather lengthy letter in our local paper today, the Traverse City Record-Eagle, defending the AR-15 and those of us who are silly enough to criticize it as a "military-style" weapon. Never having lived among gun lovers, I simply cannot understand their attraction to weapons that kill and maim.

      " Armalite. As you can likely guess, it was the company's 15th model. Yep, it’s that simple. After a series of other unrelated rifles, Eugene Stoner came up with the AR-10, which was more or less a bigger version of the AR-15 we know and love today. The Zoomies decided it was pretty cool and by 1964 the AR-15 (or rather the AR-15's select-fire cousin, the M16) had entered official military service. By 1969, it was the standard-issue rifle of the U.S. Military, taking the place (for the most part) of the M14."

    " the lawsuit Bankston filed earlier this month. He’s suing on behalf of the 24-year-old man whom Infowars falsely identified as the gunman who killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.

    For the Sandy Hook parents, they just want the lies to stop. Even when Jones made an assurance he’d stop talking about it, that too was a lie. During a November 2016 broadcast, Jones said that if “children were lost at Sandy Hook, my heart goes out to each and every one of those parents.”

    But he didn’t stop there: “The only problem is, I’ve watched a lot of soap operas, and I’ve seen actors before. And I know when I’m watching a movie and when I’m watching something real.”

    The broadcast was titled “Alex Jones Final Statement on Sandy Hook.”

    Less than a year later, in April 2017, Jones aired another segment. It was titled “Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed.”"

      Did he include himself as one of the vampires?

It just goes directly to their thighs.
