Ellen Anderson sent a message to Edward W. Stack Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dicks Sporting Goods Email Address that said:
I would like to thank you for your recent decision not to sell automatic weapons at your stores. I know that gun violence is a very difficult and complicated issue to solve, but there has to be a start somewhere.
There are some commonsense solutions that can be implemented, and your recent decision is one of those and I would like to applaud and thank you for it. I just heard of this decision, while watching The View on television, and stopped to come find an address where I could thank you. Please know that these type of decisions do not go unnoticed or without appreciation.
