An 18-year-old man from Michigan is now also suing Dick’s Sporting Goods over its decision to not sell guns anymore to anyone under the age of 21.

Tristin Fulton said the sporting goods store refused to sell him a firearm when he tried to buy one in their Troy, Michigan store prompting him to file the lawsuit. Fulton is a high school senior and son of a gun shop co-owner. He filed his lawsuit on Tuesday.

Fulton argued on Thursday: “I’m 18. I’m legally allowed to purchase a firearm, and I should have been allowed to. By denying me my right to purchase a firearm that day, they violated the Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act.”

Fulton was referring to the Michigan law that prohibits discriminatory practices, policies, and customs on the basis of religion, age, race, national origin, sex, height, and weight.

Fulton’s lawsuit marks the second case filed against Dick’s over its new gun-selling policy. A 20-year-old man in Oregon filed a similar lawsuit against Dick’s and Walmart on Tuesday for the same new gun-selling policy.

Dick’s declared last month that it would stop selling assault-style rifles and stop selling firearms or ammunition to anyone under the age of 21. The move was made in response to the Parkland mass shooting, where a 19-year-old former student of the school is accused of killing 17 people.

Strip Dicks of their Federal Firearms License.

Lets see how quickly they end up like Sports Authority, Sears or K-mart.

Remember them… The stores that caved to Rosies and others Anti-Gun whining over the last 20 + years …now Bankrupt, or closing stores so fast they are running out stores to sell things.
