Dick’s Gun Ban Loses Sporting Goods Store Hundreds of Millions

Published

on

Dick’s Sporting Goods’ anti-gun policies are hitting them where it hurts most — their pocket books.

After the Parkland massacre, which renewed Democrats’ nationwide push for gun control, corporations began to virtue signal their support for anti-gun measures.

Dick’s was one of the first to do so by banning the sales of AR-15s.

According to a Bloomberg News report, the retailer lost about $150 million sales, roughly 1.7 percent of annual revenue.

Despite these indicators, Dick’s has continued its anti-gun crusade with a new plan to stop selling guns in 125 locations.

And the head honcho of Dick’s isn’t even trembling.

In the Bloomberg report, CEO Ed Stack said the “The system does not work.”

Stack continued, “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.”

The perpetrator of the Parkland massacre, Nikolas Cruz, bought a shotgun from Dick’s a few months prior to the attack, where he murdered 17 people.

Under Stack’s watch, Dick’s also banned gun sales to adults under the age of 21.

However, the gun ban hasn’t yet affected Dick’s stock price.

According to the Bloomberg report, shares have risen by 14 percent in 13 months since the Parkland massacre.

Pro-gun organizations did not approve of Dick’s decision to ban guns.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation kicked Dick’s out of the organization. Even gun manufactures like Mossberg stopped doing business with Dick’s.

Those who supported Dick’s gun control virtue signaling did not follow through in becoming customers.

Stack concluded by saying “Love is fleeting. Hate is forever.”

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
