    Dick's destroys $5,000,000 worth of assault rifles

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/dicks-spo...rth-of-weapons

    But what are they doing about the 40,000 injuries from golf-ball and club strikes or the 9 deaths annually from lightning strikes on golf courses? I say we petition Dick's to stop selling golf equipment.

    For the children!

    They are a "fair-weather" retailer, without desire to support the principle of the RKBA one iota.

    They're welcome to set fire to $5M in inventory anytime they please.

    Of course, it's a calculated business decision. They're hoping kowtowing to the mob equates to better sales (or fewer losses), given the political winds. Despite the damage it'll do to the customer base in that product category. UP to them.

    I hope they choke on it.

    When I went to jr high the the, then, one and only Dick's was on the next block. I spent hours drooling into the gun cases and counters. Dick Stack was a big-time fisherman but also a shooter/hunter and was tolerant of the kids. Always a great hang-out. I shot PPC with a couple of the gun dept staff and they knew their product and how to use them.

    But that was 40 years ago and times sure have changed. Dick's is now a clothing store more than what I consider sporting goods. They haven't attracted me in for decades.

    Not this one - but then I only have a few common shares.

    I haven’t been in a Dicks store for many years. I hope they go out of business.

    I haven’t stepped into a Dick’s since they announced their decision to stop gun sales. Last I heard their sales had dropped by a $150 million and they were going to close 36+ store. The one and only store near me has little or no business.

    Dicks moved into an old Sports Authority near me. I swear SA had more cars in the parking lot than Dicks does.

    I wonder if they really did destroy those weapons or if they said they did and sold them somewhere.

    Why not just return them to the manufacturer and get a refund? IDK, maybe they can't do that? I don't work in retail so I'm not sure.

    I can't imagine any company willingly destroying 5 million dollars worth of merchandise that people would snap up in a second if they put it on sale.

    Dick's has lost sight of it's customer base and I bet it doesn't last many more years. It's reputation is more for hunting, fishing , camping and shooting...not what the hipsters with disposable income are looking for anymore, at least not in the numbers that are needed to carry the brand.

    I have my doubts as well. Dick's is dead as door nail to me but just for fun, let's see the proof. There's more to this story.

    It occurs to me that what they're really saying with destruction of $5M in these items is: they don't want the stuff to exist, usable by anybody; they want it gone.

    They're no friend of the RKBA, if that's the case. They've simply been hypocrites and profit-chasers all this time, riding on the backs of defenders and outdoorsmen in the hope such folks wouldn't notice.

    Well, we're noticing now. (As though it's any surprise.)

    Would love to know if they got some sort of cash inducement by a wealthy leftist, to help them make the "right" (read: liberty-destroying) decision. Say, a $5M inducement? Wouldn't surprise me.
