Dick's Sporting Goods Is Tumbling – But Don't Blame Its New Policy on Guns

Dick's Sporting Goods has suffered a surprisingly steep downturn in sales since promising to sell fewer guns, but the problem isn't the gun sales, Fortune says.

Stock tumbled to the lowest in four months after the sports store banned assault-style weapons from its Field & Stream stores and raised the minimum age for a customer to buy a firearm from 18 to 21.

However, the store has also suffered problems with overstocking and high discounts, as well as increased competition from places like Nike and Amazon.

After the Parkland school shooting last month that killed 17, Dick's executives were aghast to learn that the young gunman had bought one of his many guns from them, though not the one he used in the shooting.

What they fail to account for is that individuals who purchase firearms generally purchase other outdoors equipment, boats, campers etc.  Most of these people are not libtard tree huggers.  Many are somewhat conservative in their views especially when it comes to constitutional rights.  I would say the verdict is in from the jury regarding "Dicks".  Apparently Dick is a Dick Head.

When the epic meeting between Eugene Stoner and Mikhail Kalashnikov occurred, it was determined that the AK had a big advantage over the AR. When you ran out of ammo, you could use the wooden buttstock of the AK to beat your enemy senseless.

Actually the AK is a better weapon.  You can throw one in a mud hole then pick it up and it still operates.
