Dick’s Sporting Goods announced Tuesday it will no longer sell guns at 125 of its stores, furthering its retreat from gun sales that began last year when the ban only applied to 10 of its stores, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Why it matters: Dick’s has seen a sharp dip in sales since restricting gun sales to purchasers under 21 and taking assault weapons off the shelves entirely following the Parkland, Florida, school shooting last February. CEO Ed Stack said Dick’s will remove firearms from markets where the sales currently underperform. In place of the guns, Dick’s will be selling licensed sports gear and other outdoor recreational gear that tends to sell faster.

In a show of unity at the Democratic National Convention, 13 of Joe Biden's former 2020 challengers will appear via video to talk about the party's vision for the country and how they'll work with Biden to get it done.

Why it matters: Coalescing around Biden and his eventual running mate will help Democrats head into the general election against President Trump with a united front — unlike what they did in 2016.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acted legally when he bypassed Congress to approve $8 billion in arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but failed to "fully assess risks and implement mitigation measures to reduce civilian casualties" that resulted from the deal, according to a report by the State Department inspector general.

Why it matters: The 2019 sale drew bipartisan ire among lawmakers, who worried it could lead to a pattern of the administration using "emergency declarations" to circumvent Congress to approve weapons deals. The report comes two months after former Inspector General Steve Linick testified that he was pressured by a top Pompeo aide to drop the investigation.
