Dick’s Sporting Goods is pulling certain semi-automatic rifles off its shelves nationwide.

The store says it’s also removing all guns from its store near Newtown, Connecticut.

The retailer says the change comes out of respect for the victims and families.

No word on how long the suspension will stay in place.
