    Why should I care?

    If I want what they don't sell.....the solution is simple: shop elsewhere.

    Whoever decided to destroy those guns should be immediately fired.

    You don't destroy inventory just to prove a political point.
    Especially inventory that you can sell later at a higher price.

    When AR-15s are banned, those rifles will triple in value.
    Only an idiot would destroy them now.

    Let’s assume, just for a moment that they may not be thinking, and therefore reacting, rationally.

    Makes perfect sense then.





    My job here is done.

    The stockholders should be outraged but the smart ones sold their stock weeks ago.

    It's the owner's decision. Can't fire him unless he fires himself.

    We need to know how many are they "destroying". Is it one or a hundred, or none. Dicks is not much of an organization as far as I can tell. I wander thru one of the stores on occasion but havent found any thing to buy. From what Ive seen they are more aligned to sell tennis rackets and exercise machinery, and exercise stylish clothing. Prices are not enticing. Being the cynic I am I'd think it was more of a laundry than functioning merchandiser. Thats just my cynicism.

    Good! My guess is, it won't be long before Dick's joins the "used to be" ranks of other pedestrian "outdoorsman" stores. Good riddance!

    My message? I won't spend another cent in any of their stores. :)

    They got a little recovery by taking over the little demand that Sports Authority left behind when they went out of business, but that won't last long. I'll see them filing for bankruptcy within 2 years.

    That's a catastrophic result in todays stock market..

    As a company, they're welcome to do as they please. I won't be shopping there, although I didn't before. I stopped shopping at academy sports after their stance on ARs a while back.

    Looks like Dick***** is looking for some publicity..............it will help with the snowflakes, for a while.............might bump their stock, for a bit................then reality will kick in again.

    It never fails to amaze me, just how ******* dumb people are.

    Dick's can burn down their whole damned place, with themselves inside, for all I care.

    While they are at it, they can invite some anti gun liberals to join them in the protest.

    I'd like to say I won't buy from them anymore, but I've never shopped at their place, and of course I'd never shop there now.
