    Dick’s a great place to buy guns. The kind of guns that were used at Newtown.

    Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS -1.33%) is apparently over the shock of the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shootings that killed 20 students and six adults.

    The retailer is opening a new subsidiary chain of stores, Field & Stream, to challenge big outdoor retailers such as Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s. To celebrate, Dick’s sidestepped the vow it made to stop selling “modern sporting rifles” — the industry term for military-style semiautomatic arms like the AR-15 that Newtown killer Adam Lanza used. Instead, it’s stocking its new shops with a bevy of AR-15s and other similar weapons, according to The Firearm Blog.
