Dick’s suspends sales of certain rifles


THE DAYS FOLLOWING THE SHOOTINGS AT SANDY HOOK. ATTENTION TURNS NOW TO GUNS SOLD IN RETAIL STORES. ONE RETAIL CHAIN HAS TAKEN SOME OF ITS WEAPONS OFF THE MARKET. NEWS 4’S GEORGE RICHERT PICKS UP THIS PART OF OUR TEAM COVERAGE TONIGHT.. GEORGE. IT WAS HARD TO GET GUN DEALERS TO SAY ANYTHING PUBLICLY TODAY, NOT EVEN DICK’S SPORTING GOODS WHICH HAS CHOSEN TO TAKE THE TYPE OF GUN THAT WAS USED IN THE CONNECTICUT SHOOTING OFF THE SHELVES. DICK’S SPORTING GOODS IS STILL SELLING CERTAIN TYPES OF SEMI AUTOMATIC RIFLES, BUT HAS CHOSEN TO TAKE ITS ASSAULT STYLE RIFLES OFF THE SHELVES LIKE THE BUSHMASTER .223 CALIBER WHICH WAS SELLING FOR ABOUT FOR $800 AT DICK’S JUST LAST WEEK. CUSTOMERS HAVE MIXED REACTION. ((JOE SKOBJAK-DICK’S SPORTING GOODS CUSTOMER-“I THINK IT’S A VERY GOOD IDEA. THEY SHOULD’VE BEEN BANNED A LONG TIME AGO.” GEORGE RICHERT-“WHY?” SKOBJAK-“JUST NOT NECESARY FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE ASSAULT RIFLES.”)) ((ANN PARUCKI-DICK’S SPORTING GOODS CUSTOMER-“NO I DON’T THINK IT’LL MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT ALL BECAUSE CRIMINALS…IF YOU’RE EVIL OR IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO COMMIT A CRIME, THEY’RE GONNA STEAL ‘EM OR THAT’S HOW I BELIEVE IT’S GONNA HAPPEN.”)) THE SALE OF AR-15S LIKE THE BUSHMASTER WAS BANNED BETWEEN THE YEARS OF 1994 AND 2004, BUT THAT BAN EXPIRED 8 YEARS AGO AND IN NY STATE , AS LONG AS IT DOESN’T HAVE A CLIP CAPABLE OF HOLDING MORE THAN 10 ROUNDS IT CAN BE SOLD HERE….S&S TAXIDERMY IN SPRINGVILLE SOLD ITS LAST FOUR AR-15S YESTERDAY,… ((GEORGE RICHERT-“AS OF THIS MORNING, GANDER MOUNTAIN IN TONAWANDA WAS STILL SELLING A DIFFERENT TYPE OF AR-15, AND A SALESMAN HERE TELLS ME HE EXPECTS TO RESTOCK THE BUSHMASTERS SOON.”)) LOCAL WALMARTS WERE NOT SELLING AR-15S HERE, BUT IN SOME STATES EVEN THE BLACK FRIDAY SALE ADD LISTED AN ASSAULT WEAPON.. DICKS SPORTING GOODS OFFICIALS WOULDN’T DO AN INTERVIEW BUT A SALESMAN TOLD ME THE STORE WOULDN’T BE SELLING ASSAULT STYLE WEAPONS FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. AT NICK’S SPORTING GOODS IN NORTH BUFFALO, OWNER ROY HRYCHOWIAN HAD THIS REACTION TO DICK’S DECISION… ((ROY KRYCKOWIAN-OWNER, NICK’S SPORTING GOODS-“IF THAT’S WHAT THEY WANNA DO…I DON’T SELL A LOT OF ASSAULT GUNS. MOST OF WHAT I SELL ARE TO HUNTERS. I HAVE FRIENDS THAT HAVE AR-15S, AK47S AND THEY USE ‘EM FOR TARGET SHOOTING AND HAVING FUN WITH THEM.”)) THREE DAYS BEFORE THE SHOOTING, ADAM LANZA TRIED TO BUY A GUN AT A DICK’S SPORTING GOODS STORE, BUT HE DIDN’T WANT TO WAIT FOR
