Dick’s Sporting Goods may have placed their anti-American ideology over their desire to stay in business. After the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, Dick’s has made several anti-American decisions. First, they pulled all of their assault-style weapons from sale and then they imposed a minimum age for purchasing a firearm from them at 21. They followed that up with announcing that they were destroying all of the guns they pulled from the stores. Lastly, Dick’s has hired lobbyists to work in Washington DC to push for more gun control.
Mossberg & Sons, a major manufacturer of firearms, especially affordable shotguns, has announced that they will no longer sell their firearms to Dick’s due to Dick’s recent actions.
(Fox News) – Several major gun manufacturers said they were severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods in response to the company’s February announcement it would no longer sell assault-style weapons due to the deadly Parkland school shooting.
O.F. Mossberg & Sons Inc., the parent company of Mossberg guns, announced Wednesday they would no longer be doing business with the sports retailer. Mossberg & Sons ended its association with Dick’s after Dick’s hired three Washington, D.C., lobbyists to push for gun control efforts, the National Review reported.
“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control,” Mossberg & Sons CEO Iver Mossberg wrote in a press release. “Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.” …
Dick’s actions have got to be costing them in overall sales as I know of many people who have stopped shopping at Dick’s. I admit that I have shopped at Dick’s for various items, but since they began their anti-American reaction to the Parkland shooting, I’ve not stepped inside Dick’s and don’t ever plan to. If you value the US Constitution and 2nd Amendment, then you should also boycott Dick’s and hurt the only way that will make an impact – their sales.
