Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Dick's Sporting Goods

TOP Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Dick...

"Dick's Sporting Goods has shown that responsible corporate leadership is good for business. In the wake of the Parkland tragedy, the New York-bred company took a principled stand by ending sales of assault-style weapons and raising the age to buy a gun to at least 21 years old. While the NRA and its pawns warned of financial disaster, Dick's instead saw sales and earnings increase. As the federal government continues to do nothing, I urge other businesses to follow Dick's example and do the right thing."
