What do you think of a left-wing sporting goods store that doesn’t sell guns? Dick’s Sporting Goods hurt their own business with their left-wing policies that hit at the Second Amendment. Now they are trying something different and are apparently counting on liberals to keep them going.
They are burning the customers who made them.
THEY STARTED LOSING MONEY IN DECEMBER
In December, Dick’s Sporting Goods told investors during the Goldman Sachs Retailing Conference that its gun-control stance hurt sales of its hunting business, outdoors business, and that it may close its outdoor-focused Field & Stream stores, Free Beacon reported.
They don’t care about the customers who made them and they don’t care about the Bill of Rights, specifically the 2nd Amendment. Remember, if one Amendment goes, they all go.
Edward Stack, chairman, and CEO of Dick’s said during the event “the decisions we made on firearms” negatively affected their bottom line but they’re not sorry [about attacking our 2nd Amendment rights].
THEY ARE LOBBYING AGAINST THE 2ND AMENDMENT
They won’t sell AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles and they won’t sell to people under age 21. [People 18 can vote and serve in the military, get jobs in security using guns.]
Not only that, Dick’s hired their own gun-control lobbyists in order to push for stricter gun laws nationwide. That action led the National Shooting Sports Foundation—the firearms industry’s trade group—to expel the retailer.
THEY ARE DOUBLING DOWN ON THEIR BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE
Fast forward to today and they plan to stop selling guns in 125 stores. They started with 10 stores last year. The company’s shares fell 11.2 percent in Tuesday trading.
Dick’s CEO Ed Stack said the changes will be completed late this year, and the company will consider removing firearms in coming years depending on how these 125 stores perform.
“If it goes as well as expected, we would probably take another batch of stores next year,” Stack said in Tuesday’s earnings call.
Stack has been virtue signaling about how guns caused the Parkland shooting when, in fact, a mentally disturbed youth did, aided and abetted by incompetent leftists in the school, the sheriff’s office, the FBI, and the social service agencies.
I haven’t shopped in Dick’s since they started this and I spent a lot of money there. They can do whatever they want, and it won’t affect me.
Cabela’s is loving it.
I quit going to Dick’s when they decided to get into politics and haven’t been back. They were never very good, their salespeople often knew less about a product than I did and they were often overpriced. They could cease to exist and most of America would not even notice or care.
“Dick’s Sporting Goods Will Stop Selling
former Dick’s customer here. They are really just a clothing store. Good luck with that. There is an Amazon waiting to eat your lunch.
Democrats determined to neuter the 1st an 2nd amendments, then the 4th, etc.
You could very well say, the democrats are at war with the American citizen and our constitutional rights, how else can you explain it?
“Quietly, but quickly, a raft of identical gun confiscation bills have been filed by liberal politicians in states across the country.”
“The measures adopted to restore public order are: First of all, the elimination of the so-called subversive elements …. They were elements of disorder and subversion. On the morrow of each conflict I gave the categorical order to confiscate the largest possible number of weapons of every sort and kind. This confiscation, which continues with the utmost energy, has given satisfactory results.”

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”
– Adolf Hitler
“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”
