People on both sides of the gun debate have voiced their opinions.

"We are very proud that a Pennsylvania company has chosen to go ahead of this nationally and really make a positive ethical decision, and a business decision that, by all accounts I have seen, is positive for them," she said Rob Conroy, director of organization for CeaseFirePA.

"Obviously, they have lost track of the marketplace of ideas, as far as facts. So what they're doing is committing financial strikes on gun manufacturers, legitimate firearms dealers, and they're doing this to other businesses that have some connection to it, "Kim Stolfer, board member of Firearms Owners Against Crime, said.

The advertiser for a new gun policy may come Thursday as the company submits its quarterly report.

WPXI has reached out to officials with Dick's Sporting Goods for more information on the policy. They have not yet responded.
