Dick's Sporting Goods CEO says it destroyed $5 million worth of weapons

Dick's Sporting Goods has destroyed $5 million of the chain's gun inventory, its CEO said.

After finding out that Dick's had sold the Parkland shooter a shotgun, CEO Edward Stack decided last year the company would no longer sell firearm to anyone under 21. Dick's announced it would destroy its inventory of weapons, rather than allow them to be sold by another retailer.

Since then, about $5 million of the chain's gun inventory has been turned into scrap metal, Stack said in an interview with CBS.

"All this about, you know, how we were anti-Second Amendment, you know, 'we don't believe in the Constitution,' and none of that could be further from the truth," he said in the interview. "We just didn't want to sell the assault-style weapons that could inflict that kind of damage."

1. "We believe in the right to bear arms!"

"Now pass me another armful of guns to chuck into this crusher."

Who does he think he's fooling?

8. Dicks is just about clothing anymore

I boycotted them when I went in to buy flyfishing stuff. Walmart has more. Basspro and Cabellas are my go to stop when I need to talk to an expert, and stock up. They also offer fly tying classes.

Dicks has nothing.
