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.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
