I don't understand why a store that sells fishing gear, kayaks, crossbows, knives, and some assorted camping gear (besides obvious sport and workout stuff) would think it's a good idea to go all anti-gun. Who the fuck do they think is buying that shit? Seriously I doubt people that would never purchase a gun own anything from dicks besides backpacks, shoes, and overpriced athletic clothes.

I find that dicks sporting goods tend to be in larger cities that are more liberal. It serves the kind of people that buy 200$ workout clothes just to casually wear as a status symbol.

$200 workout clothes for the 400lb lardasses who want to "look cute" (and fail miserably) and blog about their "weight loss journey" where they go absolutely nowhere.

That's true. It is mainly clothes and the department's I mentioned are much smaller than say a Cabela's.

Stores sell guns cause they make money on them. Period.

They don't care about the 2nd Amendment, just fucking money.

Obviously Dicks executive team wasn’t thinking about money when they pissed off half the country and more than half their target customers

There is a difference from discontinuing sales of unpopular items and taking a moral stand. People don't get mad at Walmart for not selling certain guns and that is because Walmart didn't make a big sink about taking them off the shelves for moral reasons.

It's highly suspicious. I always thought Blackberry deliberately borked themselves. They had the closest to a secure phone you could get and a good business plan, then suddenly they couldn't tie their own shoelaces.

If you consider everything going through their servers in Canada secure, sure.

Dicks is (was) okay if you needed something in a pinch and didn't have time to wait for it to be shipped.

I also bought my last baseball glove there.

The only real power we have is the power to decide where to spend our money. Don't buy anything here.

I had to make a similar judgement call just a few minutes ago- the wife wanted to grab some tacos after we went to the movies tonight, and the taco joint had a "No Firearms Allowed" sign despite the fact that we're in the south. I told her to get hers to go because I wasn't gonna buy anything from those commie fucks. We're back home now and I'm munching on a bubba burger instead.

Gentleman, we sell stuff for a group that likes to be outdoors in the wild, fishing, hiking, camping and survival larping, how do we boost sales?

Oh I know, lets shit on tools that are use for hunting.

That's exactly what I was thinking. If I was a stock holder in that company and the ceo decided to virtue signal me out of a nice dividend check I would be calling for his head.

[–] slwsnowman40 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

As much as I agree (and I upvoated), I think the largest stockholders are of a certain (((group))) and can afford to take the hit that virtue signaling like this causes. It's the rest of us that have our 401(k)s and buy individual stocks that get hurt the most though.

exactly, and if they can't foresee the most obvious result of these actions then they aren't mentally capable of making these decisions in the first place. they are a liability and keeping them in their current position in the company is a risk that bears no reward.

So sick of hearing people talk about 2A as if it's up for debate, or is allowed to be modified. The FFs took tremendous care and time to word it in a way that makes NO WIGGLE ROOM- EVERYONE HAS GUNS, CANNON, HAND-WEAPONS, EVERYTHING.

It's amazing that 2A has been chopped down as much as it has already. There's no reason why it shouldn't apply to automatic weapons, explosives, etc.. The purpose is to fight an organized military if need be, so the populace is supposed to be armed similarly.

BUT.

The populace is supposed to be the military. We are not supposed to have a standing army. (((They))) continue their stupid fucking proxy wars and false flag terror attacks to push us into more proxy wars so they can justify us having a military in a time that we need to keep our capable hands here at home. I am a veteran and i have come to the conclusion that if the american people really wanted to send a message to the government then we would stop having our children enlist. Period end of story. In fact im going to submit a discussion on that topic alone.
