Some Gun Retailers Make Changes After School Shootings

Retailers that sell guns are making some changes after the shooting in Newtown, Conn. Dick’s Sporting Goods, a chain with more than 500 stores, said in a statement that “during this time of national mourning” it was stopping gun sales, and withdrawing them from display, at its store closest to Newtown. The company said it was also temporarily ceasing sales of modern sporting rifles nationwide. And removed its information page on the Bushmaster .223, a semiautomatic rifle said to be used by the gunman, Adam Lanza, in the Newtown killings.
