Deborah Nelson sent a message to Edward W. Stack Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dicks Sporting Goods Email Address that said:
Thanks to Edward Stack for making such a bold responsible move in eliminating assault weapons from your sales. I would not even go into a store that sell them and believe me, you now have a loyal customer. You may lose some gun owners and IRA members, but you will gain a lot of support from non-gun owners, but who purchase camping and sporting goods.
Again, thanks for being such a good sport and a wonderful responsible person. I agree that Dicks Sporting Goods should not want to be one who helps someone kill in mass proportions. You have saved a lot of saves on this wonderful day by making that decision.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
