In the wake of the Florida shooting, Dick’s Sporting Goods has given in to the anti-gun hysteria, and released a statement that looks like it could have been written by Dianne Feinstein. In the statement, they stated that they will no longer be selling “assault-style rifles” or high capacity magazines, sell guns to anyone under 21 years of age, or ever put “bump stocks” on their shelves.
The statement in its entirety can be seen below:
At the end of their statement, Dick’s Sporting Goods calls on elected officials to enact a number of anti-gun laws, including a ban on “assault weapons” and raising the minimum age to purchase a firearm to 21.
Dick’s Sporting Goods also reveals that they had sold a shotgun to Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland Florida shooter.
In response to the statement, many gun owners announced their anger at Dick’s Sporting Goods, who have made much of their money off of the sale of firearms.
I will no longer shop at Dick's..i spend quite a bit of money their especially when you opened a new store in my city..i will keep much money local..the 2a is not up for negotiation..ever!

Smith & Wesson Stepping Up Production to Meet Record Setting Astronomical Demand for New Guns
They’re stepping up production.
One of the biggest gun manufacturers in the United States is pledging to step up gun production as demand for new firearms soars to astronomical proportions. Smith & Wesson is pledging to boost their manufacturing to “maximum capacity” to meet unprecedented demand.
Gun sales in 2020 have crushed the records set in any previous year by a hefty margin, with the combination of the coronavirus and nationwide race riots aided and abetted by the Democratic Party serving to convince millions of Americans who have never owned guns before that they need to arm themselves.
“As we’ve seen before during these surge periods, these results reflect that despite our record numbers in market share growth, consumer demand for our products during the quarter still exceeded our internal manufacturing capacity levels,” said Mark Smith, CEO of the firearms company that was founded in 1852, in a call on Thursday. “We’re continuing to ramp up…. We’re going to go to maximum capacity.”
The company moved almost 600,000 guns from a period between May and July, smashing its records and depleting its existing inventory of newly manufactured guns.
“When we get into these surge environments like this, and as you can see from the [gun background check numbers] we’ve never seen one quite this high, the demand in the industry just outstrips the industry’s ability to supply,” Smith said. “And we’re no different. You can look at the inventory numbers from us and from some of the other firearms, retailers, and manufacturers, and I think we’re just out of inventory.”
Elevating existing manufacturing levels could prove critical to lowering surging prices for firearms, as retailers are unable to match demand. Ammunition continues to sell for record-setting prices, signaling a need for ammunition manufacturers to meet sky-high demand as well.
Smith and Wesson manufacturers a wide variety of popular civilian firearms, including AR-15 style rifles, a multitude of pistols and revolvers, and .22 rimfire rifles.
