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.

Field and stream is owned by the same company too, I don't know if they've stopped carrying stuff too though

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.

I think that's the only brick and mortar store I can get Superfeet inserts since Sports Chalet went out of business.
