Dicks Destroying Firearms

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced on Monday it will destroy all of the unsold firearms it pulled off store shelves in February after the deadly Parkland school shooting.

The sports retailer decided to destroy the assault-style rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. On Feb. 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh-based company announced it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21. It was not immediately clear how many firearms will be destroyed.

When I saw the thread title I assumed it was about some jerk do good wannabes destroying bought back guns or something.   Jerks = Dicks!  LOL

Looks like Dicks is going after the non hunting shooting crowd’s support. Trying to impress them with a sillybfeel-good mood.

So are they still selling guns other than AR’s, or are they out of 5he firearm business altogether?  I have never considered Dicks a gun source anyway, and only rarely have I looked around in there anyway.  

My attitude is simple - they own the store, they make the decisions, even though I don’t necessarily agree with them . Let the business/financial chips fall as they may......

Why wouldn’t they donate then to local law enforcement agencies.  You will not catch me buying in that store, ever

I don't need to shop at any store who tries to appeal to the politically correct wacko crowd. They lost me as a future customer.

From what I've heard, they haven't sold these guns for a while now so I doubt they are destroying anything. Just a PR stunt by a lib organization.

Now manufacturers are refusing to do further business with Dicks.  What a fitting name, Dicks.

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.
