March 2, 2018 (San Diego) – Earlier this week, Dick’s Sporting Goods, one of the nation’s largest gun retailers announced it will no longer sell assault rifles or high capacity ammunition magazines and is raising the age to 21 for all other gun purchases.

Now, following on that lead, other major retailers including Walmart, REI, Kroger and L.L. Bean have stepped up to the plate with gun sales limits of their own. Other companies have stopped partnering with the National Rifle Association on discounts for NRA members.
