Dick's CEO says company destroyed $5M worth of assault rifles

https://thehill.com/business-a-lobbying/business-a-lobbying/464717-dicks-ceo-says-5-million-worth-of-assault-rifles-were?fbclid=IwAR1q6PqmNarvb6BkLogSVcAWTW5udaSxeOW2lDUEdJHR0N86wKkLJINV21E&fbclid=IwAR3ueUcZh6nIUoEjWjH04MxPG8DCmZT6jZfQS6N6EQBfzwjGaohCgTqZM4M



The CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods says that after the company made the decision to no longer sell assault-style rifles, more than $5 million worth of the weapons were destroyed.

In an interview with CBS News that aired Sunday, Ed Stack said following the decision last year to stop offering assault-style rifles, the question of what to with the remaining inventory lingered.

"I said, 'You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them,'" Stack said, adding that the company turned $5 million worth of the weapons into scrap metal.

Dick’s made the decision to stop carrying the rifles following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 dead and reignited the national conversation surrounding gun control.

"We found out that we sold this kid a shotgun," Stack said. "That's when I said, 'We're done.'"
