Just read that their CEO said they’re ceasing all sales of “assault style weapons” and high capacity magazines. Wonder if they’re going to clearance them out or send them back to their distributors.

Just more knee jerk reaction pandering to the bleeding hearts.

I saw a sign over the AR rack in carter's country referring to them as automatic sporting rifles or something along those lines.

Soon it will be a good time to open up an AR gun store, accepting all these manufacturers guns that no one else will. Bring it on, if they won't do it, somebody will.

Thats their decision and if they choose to lose out on their marketshare of the AR sales so be it. Makes my choice a little easier.

to anyone under 21. They also will not sell AR style guns at all. This is what I've been told. Can anyone confirm it yet? I haven't been in there lately, and don't shop there for guns anyway. Their business, they can't do what they want imo. That being said, hopefully it will hit them in the pocket book. I'm afraid others will follow the lead, and make it harder to purchase AR's.

They are overpriced anyways. They had a 25% off all guns sale before Christmas. The same rifle I could get at ****'s with the 25% off was the same price at Bass Pro.

I still remember people on here thinking they got a good deal LOL.

Could be logical if you didn't have them heading out fighting for your freedom with firearms you won't allow them to buy at under 21 with the possibility of never returning home.

Not when they have 25% of plus I get a savage rebate store is crapola for any hunting gear though. Nice fishing section. I was more surprised they have guns at all rather than mad they had no ARs.

Their prices alone keep me out of the store. Not to mention the $7/hr "morans" they hire.

It has to be true because it is trending on my fb.

I wonder how this will affect the field and stream store that is attached physically to the one near me. Hmm...

Typically bass pro is the highest priced, the field and stream by my house that did the 25 off priced match before the discount as well, bought a shotgun that was 1699 at bass pro they had it for 1769, they matched it and took a extra hundred off and then got the 25, so for me it was a good deal, wonder if they will clearance out all their mags and guns ?

Ok, tell me what's "logical" about that? My son killed his first deer at age 6 with an AR-15. He's now 18, and there is absolutely no reason that he should be prohibited from buying any firearm. If we are going to make laws based on the lowest denominator, you won't like the outcome.

Heard that on the radio during my drive in today. I never bought a firearm from them (mostly overpriced) and can't even remember the last time I was in one even though there is one two miles from my house.

Funny that this chain has a woman as president. Not sexist but it's just funny.

Academy did something similar after the last events as well.
They pulled all the “scary” guns off the shelf.
Public pressures caused them to put them back.
Academy has been going downhill fast ever since they got bought out
