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!

I guarantee their AR(since thats what they consider an assault rifle)sales were minimal if not non existent. Youve just committed retail suicide for a product you rarely ever sell. SMART!!! 🤣🤣😆😆
