On 28 February 2018 The Wall Street Journal reported: Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. said it has stopped selling assault-style rifles at all its stores and would no longer sell guns to those under 21 years of age, in the latest corporate response after a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school two weeks ago. The Pittsburgh-based company, with about 800 stores, previously had ended the sales of assault-style rifles at its flagship Dick's stores after the 2012 elementary school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut. It still sold them at its 25 Field and Stream stores. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
