Oregon: 20-Year-Old Sues Dick’s Sporting Goods for Refusing to Sell Rifle

Defying the NRA, Dick's takes a harder line against guns

A 20-year-old is suing Dick’s Sporting Goods after being refused a Ruger .22 rifle purchase based on his age.

The plaintiff, Tyler Watson, claims he faced “Unlawful Age Discrimination.”

Watson attempted to buy the rifle “on or about February 24” at a Medford, Oregon, Field and Stream store. (Field and Stream is subsidiary of Dick’s.)  Watson’s suit, filed in the Circuit Court of Oregon for the County of Jackson, says a store employee refused the purchase and indicated, “He would not sell [Watson] any firearm, including rifles and shotguns, or ammunition for a firearm, because [Watson] is under 21 years old.”

  1. EVERY "underage" military member should do the same to Dick's, Wal*Mart AND Floriduh

  2. I suspect all of the stores that implemented age restrictions on gun sales will lose in court unless there is a state law that supports their decision. What you will probably see are the major chains exiting the gun business. That initially won't be good for consumers, but alternatives will develop to will back-fill the void.
