CORAOPOLIS, Pa. – The largest U.S. sporting goods retailer will stop selling guns at over 440 additional stores this year.

The move by Dick's Sporting Goods follows a series of decisions to scale back gun sales.

After the 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Dick's announced it would stop selling semi-automatic weapons.

A few months later, Dick's pulled firearms and hunting accessories from 10 stores as a test and overall sales increased at those stores.

And in March 2019, the company pulled guns and ammunition from 125 additional stores.

Now, Dick's plans to nearly quadruple the number of its stores without guns.

Walmart continues to be the world's largest gun retailer.
