    Can't wait to see the local stores empty out and real sporting goods store with owners who value the constitution move in.

    This was just reported on the local TV news. That report indicated that not just guns & ammo but all hunting supplies as well - i.e., clothing too.

    Anything FIREARMS related, pretty much has been sitting on the shelves of DICKS for months. No one with any sense of gun rights is even setting FOOT in that wretched store. So I figure they're just cutting their losses since no sports shooter, hunter or collectors will patronize their stupid store. GOOD. They can be an off road biking hiking or boating store for all I care. Dicks are everywhere in NORCAL and they're always EMPTY. Every gun owner I know of will never set foot in there again. I sure don't.

    I will celebrate their eventual collapse with a beer.

    They'll probably go with transgender sportswear
    Should have never took over those Chick's stores in southern Ca a few years ago
    For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe

    Dick’s Sporting Goods is taking another step in tightening its gun sales.
    What does "tightening" gun sales even mean?

    Yep, Dick's is on its way to bankruptcy within the next 5 years IMO. I can't wait.

    Dick's is like the Communist MSM. They have shot themselves in the foot by pissing off those people who have supported them and would have continued to support them if they hadn't turned all libtard on us.

    But, they didn't realize how passionately we take our gun rights, so they deserve what they get.

    May they fold and close up shop.

    Shareholders should demand the CEO's head on a platter.

    Yep, when they made that stupid decision he was beaming with virtuous elitism at the "action" they had taken to stop gun violence......

    Like a lot of the big corporations the execs were indoctrinated in colleges by far-left profs, live in gated communities and have been surrounded by other brainwashed rich kids their whole lives, so of course they think the whole world thinks just like they do or they certainly ought to.

    Disarming the ignorant masses of rabble certainly seems like a good idea to them...why would anyone want them armed???

    This is what happens when you have an "elite" class running things that has no clue about how their customers think and really don't care anyway. If the company fails they'll just get another job at some other company they can run into the ground.


    Sometimes I wonder if that isn't the overall strategy....put the companies that sell guns and ammo out of business.

    While I celebrate the demise of an anti-gun company, I also mourn the loss of yet another retailer that once supported and supplied the gun community.
