Walmart chose to stop selling assault-style rifles four years ago and stopped selling ammunition in August after a mass shooting at one of its stores in El Paso, Texas.
When Ed Stack, CEO of the Dick's Sporting Goods chain, found out his company sold a gun to the Parkland, Florida, school shooter, he decided he was done being in business of selling assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, he said on CBS Sunday Morning. Stack said he is considering expanding that policy too.
The company could have resold the guns to another retailer or returned them to the manufacturer, but it didn't, Stack said, according to CBS.
Stack said he became even more concerned after he heard the Parkland shooter had purchased a shotgun at Dick's. He thought he would receive some flak but he didn't expect the feedback he did.
"We've got the whole category under strategic review", Stack said in the CBS interview.
