NSSF Expels Dick’s Sporting Goods

NSSF Expels Dick’s Sporting Goods

NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries, Board of Governors today unanimously voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods from membership for conduct detrimental to the best interests of the Foundation.

Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired a Washington D.C. based government affairs firm, for “lobbying related to gun control.” Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Edward W. Stack announced earlier this year the retail chain would end sales of modern sporting rifles, voluntarily raise the age to 21 to purchase firearms in their stores and called for more restrictive legislation. Dick’s later announced they would destroy the remaining modern sporting rifle inventory. NSSF responded that business decisions should be individually made, but was nonetheless disappointed and the decision does not reflect the reality of the vast majority of law abiding gun owners.

Well Dick's is permanently off our combined families ''not to shop store'' list. I will go further to comment on Dick's policy to every shooter I know!

I've been to Dick's here in Chattanooga a few times over the years. Not much more firearms and related inventory than Walmart and prices generally not competitive. Even if they were selling ARs and relatively gun friendly I'd still not be a customer. The only purchase I made was years ago when they had a Black Friday sale on CCI .22LR. Very good price. Whenever I drive by there aren't a lot of cars parked. Surprised they stay in business.

When my wife and I drive by the store I just entertain myself by asking her: "Hey you want to go look at Dick's?" We were dating the first time I asked her that, I had to point to the store before she caught on...

Believe me, it could have been worse if you would have asked her about the other store......

Angry Oh NO!!!

This can't be happening!! Coral Springs is right next to Parkland, Florida!! In fact, it was Coral Springs police who actually went into the building where Nicholas Cruz was shooting. The Broward County School Resource Officer went out to the parking lot in an attempt to retrieve his cojones from his patrol car!!

Dick's can't sell firearms that close to Parkland. David Hogg will be all over these people!!

I still say that sporting goods store is owned, run and operated by DICKS!!!
