THE NEED TO DO SOMETHING:

Dick's Sporting Goods CEO on decision to no longer sell assault-style rifles: 'We don't want to be a part of this story' (DAVID CAPLAN KATIE KINDELAN, Feb 28, 2018, abc)

"Based on what's happened and looking at those kids and those parents, it moved us all unimaginably," company Chairman and CEO Edward Stack said today on "Good Morning America," referring to the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 14 students and three educators.

"To think about the loss and the grief that those kids and those parents had, we said, 'We need to do something,'" Stack, whose father, Dick, started the business 70 years ago, explained. "And we're taking these guns out of all of our stores permanently."
