Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced that it will not sell AR-style rifles in any of its 700 plus stores and it plans to destroy its unsold stock.

Gun enthusiasts are asking the company to donate the rifles to cash-strapped police departments, Recoil Magazine reports.

"You can reach out to the Dick’s Sporting Goods customer service team, in the most respectful way possible, and request that instead of destroying all of these rifles, we want Dick’s to donate them to police departments that don’t have a patrol rifle program or simply don’t have the funds to supply officers with needed equipment," Recoil wrote.
