Lisa Hanger sent a message to Edward W. Stack Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dicks Sporting Goods Email Address that said:
Dear Mr. Stack,
Thank you so much for having the courage and heart to make the decision you announced today about no longer selling assault weapons in your stores. I live in a suburb of Atlanta and I am fortunate to never have lost anyone I love to gun violence. But I, too, have been so moved by these shootings - especially by the passion and commitment of the students in Florida to demand changes in our gun laws. I will be attending the march in Atlanta on 3/24 in support of these students.
It is sometimes hard to find a politician or CEO that I admire, but you are absolutely at the top of my list of most admired men in America today! I am so moved by your leadership and grateful for your willingness to stand up for what you believe matters most. Thank you so much.
