Thank Dick's Sporting Goods Store for Suspending Sales On Semiautomatic weapons:

I'm sure they are getting lots of scary feedback.

We should send them positive feedback hoping they make this policy permanent:

1. This is a suspension only.

Don't believe for one minute that they won't be selling these again as soon as the heat dies down. This may also be a CYA thing. Where did mama purchase these guns she had?

3. In my email to them, I asked them to make the change permanent.

Whatever the motivation, their response should be encouraged. I truly believe that those of us wanting action on this issue are the "silent majority" and we need to make our position known at every opportunity.

2. I sent an email thanking them. An action we can all take

that seems like a small one, but multiplied many times can be a significant response to the gun lobby. I'm done with silently accepting the prevailing attitude that nothing can be done to change the culture of gun violence in our communities.
