Gipson Applauds Dick’s Sporting Goods for Implementing Gun Control

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Carson, Calif --- Assemblymember and Democratic Caucus Chair Mike A. Gipson released the following statement in support of today’s announcement by Dick’s Sporting Goods to no longer sell assault-style rifles, high capacity magazines, and raise the age limit from 18 to 21 to purchase a gun.

“Dick’s Sporting Goods is doing the right thing and I commend them for it.  If Congress won’t act, our recreational retail establishments that carry these types of weapons must,” said Asm. Gipson.  As Democratic Caucus Chair, I am calling on additional businesses who sell assault-style rifles to ban these weapons from their store and raise the age from 18 to 21 to lawfully purchase a gun.  It is a tragedy that the leadership in Washington does not value the life of Americans.”
