Dick’s Sporting Goods Sawed $5 Million Worth Of Assault Rifles Into Scrap Metal: Report

Dick’s Sporting Goods destroyed $5 million worth of assault rifles as part of its tough stance on guns, its CEO Ed Stack revealed in an interview with “CBS News” on Sunday.

During the interview, Stack shared how the company turned the guns into scrap metal. He also shared the information in a new book.

“I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, then we need to destroy them,'” Stack told CBS News.

In his book, “It’s How We Play the Game: Build a Business. Take a Stand. Make a Difference,” which goes on sale Tuesday, Stack wrote that rather than returning the firearms banned by the company to manufacturers, the chain “sawed $5 million worth of rifles into scrap.”

Stack is scheduled to be on CNBC’s “Squawk Alley” on Tuesday.
