Media Statements – DICK'S Sporting Goods
Visser says Silver Bullet has seen a small increase in the sales of AR-15's after tragedies like that in Parkland and also expects those who would purchase firearms at places like Dick's and Walmart to now flock to small businesses like Silver Bullet. Dick's Sporting Goods beat Walmart to the punch, announcing a slew of new company guidelines as the Parkland students stepped into their first classes since the massacre. "But thoughts and prayers are not enough", Dick's wrote in a letter to customers. That decision by Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart on Wednesday comes following the shooting deaths at a Florida school.
In addition to a ban on assault-style weapons, Stack said high-capacity magazines would also be banned and that guns would not be sold to anyone under 21 years of age, regardless of state laws.

On Wednesday, Stack said that would end, and he called on lawmakers to act now.
