D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

 

In a statement posted on Dick's Sporting Good's web page, the retailer said they have suspended the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of their stores chainwide. 

The decision comes after the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT. Store officials stated they'll go a step further at stores nearest Newtown by removing all guns from sale and display in those locations.

Dick's Sporting Good's posted this statement: 

We are extremely saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred last week in Newtown, CT, and our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to the entire community.

Out of respect for the victims and their families, during this time of national mourning we have removed all guns from sale and from display in our store nearest to Newtown and suspended the sale of modern sporting rifles in all of our stores chainwide.

We continue to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by this terrible tragedy.
