    Academy Sports Pulling Modern Sporting Rifles From Shelves

    BREAKING: Academy Sports Pulling Modern Sporting Rifles From Shelves


    Posted 2 hours ago in Companies, News by Patrick R with 53 Comments


    Academy Sports + Outdoors, a southern US sporting goodschain is reportedly pulling modern sporting rifles from their shelves in the wake of the attack in Orlando. According to Redit user Potato_Muncher the move to pull rifles from the display rack was at the request of the corporate offices in Texas. According to u/Potato_Muncher the rifles will still be available for sale but not on display leading many buyers to believe that there are no rifles available.

    TFB also received information from a Academy employee that requested to remain anonymous that there are even more changes. Our informant stated that Academy Sports corporate hosted a conference call requesting all modern sporting rifle lighters and other gifts are being pulled from the shelves along with all the airsoft and bb guns resembling an “assault rifle”.


    The most shocking development is that the conference call outlined a new policy requiring any sale of more than 10 boxes in a caliber that Academy deems an “assault riflecaliber” will require the buyer to furnish personal information that Academy is planning on keeping in a database, other employees have stated that they were just directed to “report the transaction” with no clear outline on how to do so.

    TFB reached out to Academy Sports’ media department and has not received comment at this time, we will update as we learn more information.

                  HQ in Texas?
                  I hope that does real well for them in the South.
                  I know people up here still shop at Dicks cause they often save $2 on a box of ammo, but Texans may have a little more to them than newYawkers

                            BREAKING: Academy Sports Removes AR-15’s From Shelves “Out of Respect” — But Still Sells Them



                            The Firearms Blog (“Firearms Not Politics”) reports Academy Sports Pulling Modern Sporting Rifles From Shelves. True story! We phoned around a few stores and the sporting goods giant has removed “assault rifles” from their shelves. They are, however, still selling the guns, which can be viewed “by request.” “We’re doing it out of respect,” a manager who wished to remain anonymous told TTAG. He has no idea how long scary-looking evil black rifles [/sarc] will remain out-of-sight. But we bet the people providing Academy with guns to sell are going out-of-their-minds. The AR-15-style rifle surge is on. Even if you can’t see it.

                              And as a firearms enthusiast, I will browse their website, but I will not purchase from them.
