Dick’s Sporting Goods pulls guns from shelves at Danbury store

Holiday shoppers in Danbury found one glaring lack of goods Tuesday: guns at Dick’s Sporting Goods at the mall.

The outdoors corner of the sports superstore still featured bullets, bows, camouflage suits, targets, knives, vests, scopes, gun cleaners, kickback reducers and one Nerf rifle for kids, but the three walls of racks were empty.

“What’d you put them on lockdown?” an elderly man asked.

“Out of respect for the community,” the Dick’s Sporting Goods employee said. “We took them down this morning.”

Dick’s Sporting Goods said they will suspend the sales of certain semi-automatic rifles across the country.
