Dick's Sporting Goods is pulling certain kinds of semi-automatic rifles off its shelves nationwide.

The store says it's also removing all guns from its store nearest to Newtown, Connecticut.

The retailer says the change comes out of respect for the victims and families of last week's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It's unclear how long the store will keep the suspension in place.
