Hurrah for Dick's!

Finally: Corporate America has stood up to the irrational NRA and offered sane solutions to the American gun culture. Dick’s Sporting Goods, has immediately ended sales of all assault style rifles and high-capacity magazines and raised the age of sales of all guns to 21 years old. Thank you Dick’s!
Thank you Hertz, Met Life, Delta, Wal-Mart, SimpliSafe, Avis, Budget Rental Car and more by the time this is printed.
Since Congress can’t make progress, and won’t a stand to protect our children, we are now being led by corporate entities. The new American Way? If Congress wants to take back control of the government, they could legislate the above voluntary ideas and go a step further … require licensing that would mandate classes in safety and education associated with guns and meet standards for stability, all for the public’s safety. We require this of people who engage in potentially impactful activities, like driving vehicles, vocational and professional skills. Operating a gun should take practice and require understanding the responsibilities and ramifications of its use. Remember this when you vote.
