(Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Fortune Magazine reports Dick’s Sporting Goods is looking at an exit from the gun business.

The Pittsburgh based chain has reportedly pulled firearms from 125 stores, monitoring the impact on sales.

Dick’s has been rethinking its firearm sales since the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL that killed 17 and injured and additional 17 in February of 2018.
