Oregon man, 20, sues Dick’s, Walmart over new gun sale policies

Tyler Watson’s lawsuit could be the first of its kind in the U.S., according to his attorney, Max Whittington. Whittington knows of no others.

That was four days before the retailer announced that it wouldn’t sell guns to anyone under 21 in the wake of a 19-year-old gunman’s rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida that killed 17 people on Feb. 14.
