“We’re Going To Take A Stand” – Dick’s Stops Selling Assault Rifles Permanently

In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012, both Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods announced they would stop the sale of assault rifles, if only temporarily. Fast forward just over 5 years when moments ago Dick’s – one of the nation’s largest sports retailers – said that it is immediately ending sales of all assault-style rifles in its storesaccording to the NYT which adds that “the announcement, made two weeks after the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 students and staff members, is one of the strongest stances taken by corporate America in the national gun debate. It also carries symbolic weight, coming from a prominent national gunseller.”

The retailer also said that it would no longer sell high-capacity magazines and that it would not sell any gun to anyone under 21 years of age, regardless of local laws.

    And this will accomplish what? Ah, yes, NOTHING. Nothing but lost sales as people will go elsewhere.
    Well done, Dick’s! Well done!
    Oh, and in case you missed it, guns don’t kill people. People kill people.

    And here’s a question for Dick’s: Do you have bars on your windows to keep people out or those evil guns from escaping? Just askin’…

    Fine, Idiots. I’ll shop at Cabela’s.
    What customers do they think they are appeasing? Leftists don’t shop at Dick’s anyhow. If they do, they buy a Lifestraw, a bandana, and a pair of socks. It’s us NRA members who support them buying rifles, shotguns, ammo, handguns, duck blinds, tree stands, scopes, bench rests, boats, etc. I hate to see another sporting good store go out of business. Oh, well.

    This is the Contact website for Dick’s. They won’t know how mad you are at them unless you TELL them. And tell them where you are going to shop instead.

    Add my 2¢. I have a Dick’s about 300 yards from my front door. I have frequented there, but I made my LAST TRIP to their store. It is now “out-of-bounds” for my whole family. We talked it over and that’s our decision, and we intend to keep telling people about them, if we have to stand in front of their doors in the PUBLIC parking lot.

    These “upper-echelon” moron executives are afraid of their shadows. Well, let’s see how they feel when they’re boycotted and their sales plummet, like Target’s did. Wal*Mart (a.k.a.: Wally*World) lost a lot of business, too, and their stocks dropped because of the “no-gun-sales” BS.
    AMF “Dick”. You chose the right name for your fascist stores.

      BTW, Cabela’s, Green Mountain and Sportsman’s Guide all have better prices than you.
