Outdoor retail chain Dick's Sporting Goods has announced it'll permanently stop selling semi-automatic, assault-style rifles at all its stores and introduce a minimum age of 21 on all gun purchases.
It follows the growing calls for stricter gun control after the death of 17 students and staff on Valentine's Day in Parkland, Florida, at the hands of a former student wielding an AR-15 rifle.
It also says it will no longer be selling "high-capacity magazines," and that it'll never introduce the bump stocks that allow semi-automatic guns to fire more rapidly.
A bump stock was used in the Las Vegas massacre in October in which 58 people were killed and over 500 were injured.
Dick's CEO Ed Stack told ABC News the move was taken after he learned the 19-year-old Florida shooter bought one of his guns at a Dick's store.
The gun in question, a shotgun, wasn't actually used, but he said it showed the safeguards it already had in place weren't effective enough.
It also called for "common sense" gun control measures to be enacted at federal level.
How the minimum purchase age will affect Minnesota
Adults aged 18-20 will no longer be able to buy guns of any kind from Dick's going forward.
This will have an effect in Minnesota, where the Star Tribune notes that the minimum age to purchase a rifle or a shotgun without the permission of a parent is 18 in a municipality (city, county, town, school district etc.) and 14 outside of one.
The minimum age to buy a handgun and handgun ammunition in Minnesota is already 21, while the minimum age for buy a semi-automatic, assault-style weapon from a dealer is 18.
Minnesota defines assault-style weapons as any of the 17 following types, including AK-47s, AR-15s and the Uzi semiautomatic pistol.
And why the assault-rifle change won't
Dick's Sporting Goods has 10 stores in Minnesota, however it already pulled assault-style rifles from its stores in 2012, following the Sandy Hook school shooting.
It did however continue to sell these rifles at its 35 Field & Stream stores – of which there are no locations in Minnesota.
