'We sell AR-15's:' Banner at SC pawn shop takes jab at Dick's Sporting Goods

- A South Carolina pawn shop is causing a stir after posting a tongue-in-cheek banner that takes a jab at a national sporting goods chain.

WMBF reports that the owners of Cross Roads Pawn and Auto in Little River, SC put up the sign last week that reads, "We sell AR-15s because we're not Dick's."

The sign takes a dig at Dick's Sporting Goods decision to stop selling AR-15 semi-automatic rifles following the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. 

"It wasn't nothing negative or trying to promote violence or anything," pawnbroker Brad Stamper told WMBF. 

The decision to put up the banner came just days before the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, which left 10 dead. 

Stamper told WMBF that majority of the people support the sign and that he's received calls from supporters from various states.
