The war against the Second Amendment has been waged against Americans and the Constitution by radical leftists who seek to empower the Elitists throughout our nation for decades, but that war became real for ‘Dicks Sporting Goods’ this past year! In fact, it all began in February of 2018, when a lone gunman launched an attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School! Two weeks later, on February 28, 2018, Dicks Sporting Goods announced Dick’s announced they would no longer sell “assault rifles” or “high capacity” magazines. They also raised their minimum purchase age that Americans could buy long guns, or hunting rifles to the age of 21.
Then, Dicks said they were going to destroy all unsold “assault rifles and “high capacity” magazines, rather than return them to the manufacturers, in their new anti-Second Amendment Policy change!
Then, just six months after their assault rifle ban, reports began indicating that Dicks was feeling the hurt in their bottom line, as they revealed that they were likely going to close 35 stores around the nation! Regardless, Dick’s chose to expand their attack on all hunting gear!
Then, in early March of 2019, reports began to emerge from the Sporting Goods giant that Dicks Sporting Goods was removing all guns from its 125 stores nationwide due to plummeting profits! Ironically, it was due to their gun control stance that they were losing millions, so in response, they chose to pull ALL GUNS NATIONWIDE!
Dicks CEO Ed Stack admitted the company’s gun control stance was hurting business, but Ed Stack said that he is okay with his company’s $150 million loss, because he believes the stance for gun control was worth it.
Bloomberg.com reported that…
Dick’s lost “about $150 million” after coming out for gun control, yet Stack continues to stand his ground. He addressed America’s gun policy, saying, “The system does not work. It’s important that when you know there’s something that’s not working, and it’s to the detriment of the public, you have to stand up.”
Ultimately, the radical left cares more about ending the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, than defending the Constitution or the values that our nation has held since its birth! Instead, they care about the collective, as they seek to strip Americans of their basic rights, rather than embrace freedom and true equality! Now, even as Dicks plummets into a financial tailspin due to their anti-gun policy, they continue to not only push for an end to their sales of guns, but they are actively pushing for an end to the 2nd Amendment. In the end, it could cost their bottom line much more than millions, but it could risk everything for their brand!
