Major Retailer To Destroy Assault Rifles

Dick's Sporting Goods decided to stop selling assault-style weapons at its stores, right after the mass shooting at a Florida high school earlier this year. Now the nation's largest sporting goods retailer is going to destroy those guns. The company told CNN, "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. "We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations." A company spokesman wouldn't say how the guns would be destroyed. Dick's was one of a number of retailers that made changes to their gun sales policy after the February 14 massacre at Marjory Stonemen High School. The violence led to the death of 17 students and staff.
