Dick’s Sporting Goods has earned the ire of 2nd Amendment human rights activists, over and over.
In 2013, they publicly announced they were out of the “assault weapon” business after the Newtown shooting (where a deranged boy killed his mother to get her AR15).
They apparently slowly retrenched, because they publicly did it again after the Parkland shooting.
Nothing like conviction.
But now, they want to take it to the next level…
…of virtue-signaling stupidity:
After announcing policies that most gun owners saw as alienating, Dick’s Sporting Goods said it will go one step further and destroy its remaining inventory of firearms dubbed “assault weapons.”
A spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the remaining inventory at the retailer’s Field & Streams stores will be destroyed and then recycled.
“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” she said. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”
I’m sure the shareholders will be thrilled.
