Dick’s Sporting Goods made the decision to stop selling “assault rifles” after the Parkland mass shooting, but then there was the question — what to do with the unsold inventory? According to a piece in The Hill, Dick’s turned more than $5 million worth of rifles into scrap metal.

The Hill reports:

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.

“If we really think these things should be off the street,” he said — after his company sold how many?

A waste & a knee jerk reaction. Will they also destroy hand guns which is the instrument of choice by the perps in the vast majority of gun related deaths?

They really ought to pull hunting knives off the shelves and melt them down to make sure no one gets hurt.

It doesn't save one life in Chicago or Baltimore.

I would have taken them off of their hands. Big waste of money on their part. I still say this was some big virtue signaling. That didnt help anyone, save anyone, or make any difference.
