Dick’s Sporting Goods Removes All Reasons For a Gun Buyer to Walk Into Their Store

Published

Dick’s Sporting Goods has kowtowed to anti-gun pressure yet again.

On March 13, 2019 the sporting goods retail company announced that it will stop selling guns at 125 of its stores.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the retail outlet will now be using the new space in those stores to sell “what it considers faster-selling, higher-margin items like outdoor recreation equipment and licensed sports gear.” This development is an expansion of Dick’s original plan in 2018, when it decided to remove guns from 10 of its stores.

According to Stack, the previous quarter witnessed increased sales in the 10 test stores that experimented with the anti-gun policies. Because of this, Stack believes there is potential for expanding his anti-gun policies. The 125 stores he recently expanded his anti-gun policies in were targeted specifically because they performed poorly in hunting sales.

Dick’s move is the latest in corporate anti-gun virtue signaling.

Thankfully, gun controllers are limited politically due to Republican control of the Presidency and Senate. This has forced them to focus on state legislatures across the nation.

However, on the corporate front, gun control forces are making their presence felt. From CEOs coming out in favor of universal gun registration to social media deplatforming of gun organizations, corporate gun control is arguably the greatest threat to gun rights in America at the moment.

As the government grows bigger, the lines between the private and public sector become blurrier.

Your favorite corporations are very likely not your best friend when it comes to your right keep and bear arms.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
