Dick’s Sporting Goods is quietly phasing out hunting rifles from its stores where they’re not selling anymore.

CEO Edward Stack announced during an earnings call Tuesday that his company will pull guns, ammunition and accessories from 125 stores and replace the merchandise that will “drive growth.”

“This is around having productive space,” Stack said, according to CNN.

Last year, Dick’s took hunting rifles and accessories out of 10 stores, which Stack called a “success.”

It’s unclear exactly what the sporting goods store will stock in place of the shooting equipment.

Following the Parkland school massacre, Dick’s also stopped selling assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines and raised the minimum age for gun sales to 21.

“These kids talk about enough is enough. We concluded if these kids are brave enough to organize and do what they’re doing, we should be brave enough to take this stand,” Stack said on “New Day” in February 2018.
