…the sport goods store.
Now that thats outta the way, Last year we had reported that Dicks said they were going to destroy their remaining inventory of “Assault rifles” Dicks has done just that. They have destroyed the rifles in response to the parkland shooting along with halting the sales of “Assault rifles” their words not ours. The owner claims that they are not anti-second amendment (pretty much bullshit at this point, we know it) but they want common sense gun reform.
Fox News reports that Ed Stack said during an interview that aired Sunday that the millions of dollars worth of inventory was turned into scrap metal.
“I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them,'” he said.
It was not clear how much destroying the weapons cost the sporting goods giant.
Stack announced the Coraopolis, Pennsylvania-based chain would stop selling assault-style rifles and high-capacity magazines following the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The shooter killed 17 students and school staff with a weapon purchased from a Dick’s location.
According to CBS NEWS Dianna Muller served in the Tulsa Police Department for 22 years, and is now an award-winning professional shooter. When “Sunday Morning” caught up with her she was competing at the Rock Castle Shooting Center in Park City, Kentucky. It was ladies only, a shooting league called A Girl and a Gun.
Of the move by Dick’s Sporting Goods she said, “If they don’t want guns, that’s their right. It feels really anti-American to start creating public policy through corporate policy.”
Muller has become a high-profile spokesperson for the gun rights movement. She’s testified on Capitol Hill about carrying a firearm, specifically an AR-15.
That’s the very rifle that Dick’s is no longer selling.
Cowan asked, “Is it a fair question to ask why you need a gun like that?”
“No,” Muller replied.
“This rifle, and any other rifle, kills fewer people than hammers and blunt objects every year, according to FBI statistics,” she said, “so it doesn’t make any sense to me that this is going to solve the problem that we are having.”
Her worry is the same that the National Rifle Association has voiced for a long time: if one gun like the AR-15 is demonized, then all guns may soon follow…
Needless to say we wont be looking at Dicks let alone shopping there anytime soon…
