LL Bean raises age to buy rifles to 21

  • Media Statements – DICK'S Sporting Goods

Under federal law, 18-year-olds could buy certain kinds of rifles and other weapons, but not handguns.

"In response to the tragic events in Parkland and elsewhere, we've taken a hard look at our policies and procedures for firearm sales".

"We agree with many policy makers and our peers that increasing the age limit to 21, in order to purchase a firearm, is a step in the right direction", the company said in a statement Thursday.

Dick's Sporting Goods, one of the nation's largest sporting goods retailers, also announced this week it would stop selling assault-style rifles, and Kroger announced Thursday it would no longer sell guns and ammunition in its Fred Meyer stores to those under 21 years of age.

L.L. Bean's move follows those by Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart, which changed their gun-selling policies after a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14 left 17 people dead, including 14 students.

Nicholson says his store don't plan on changing their gun regulation sales anytime soon even though other stores have chose to do so.

FedEx has resisted the recent trend, maintaining a discount program for NRA members in spite of aggressive social media campaigns calling for it to be ended.

"They have to do what their conscious tells them to do", Parker said. As of today, the weapon will not be available at any Dick's or Field and Stream store nationally. Going forward, we are raising the age restriction for purchase of firearms and ammunition to 21 years of age. They presently have a $25.00 price target on the sporting goods retailer's stock, down from their prior price target of $33.00.

No matter what you call it, people continue to fire-off on the discussion of responsible gun ownership and sales.

"I'm not against being safe and I'm not against making changes to make the system better, I'm totally for that", said Ken Parker, owner of Parker's Indoor Gun Range.

More notable recent Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. He said the impact of the move by Dick's would very small, and it would be "pure speculation" to say what the effect might be of other companies following suit. Walmart stopped selling assault-style weapons in 2015. It will extend that ban to Alaska, where customers could get such guns via special order.

Walmart said it was also removing items from its website that resemble assault-style rifles, including airsoft guns and toys.

But L.L. Bean's new policy is evidence of a sea change in customers' expectations of retailers that sell guns. In some states, age-based discrimination in public retail establishments is illegal.
