7 October 2019 – The Chief Executive Officer of Dick’s Sporting Goods says the chain has destroyed $5 million worth of assault-type rifles it once stocked.
The Hill reports how the sporting goods chain decided to handle its remaining inventory of assault-style rifles, which were turned into scrap.
CEO Ed Stack said of the decision: “If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them.'”

I am writing to thank you for destroying millions of dollars-worth of semi-automatic weapons after you decided to no longer sell them. As far as I am concerned, this move has stopped accidental incidents, prevented deliberate shootings and has stopped suffering and death to an extent we’ll never know.
Particularly with the NRA exposed by a Senate report as being a Russian asset, I applaud your taking this heroic stance. Many companies and institutions are turning away from the discredited NRA. I will certainly remember your wonderful act when I need to buy any sporting goods in the future. Again, thank you.
Or for Twitter:
@DICKS As a member of @1Pulse4America thank you for turning $5 million worth of guns into scrap metal. We’ll never know how many accidental shootings you’ve stopped or how much misery you’ve prevented; this act is amazing. I’ll shop with you when I next buying sporting goods.
