Dick’s Sporting Goods Destroys $5 Million In Guns, CEO Brags That It Was ‘Worth It’
Dick’s sporting goods has made it more than clear that they have caved under liberal pressure. The liberal theory that it’s the guns that kill people and that without them, murders would halt, is rediculous.
The fact is, those who want to murder will find a way.
The CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods said in a recent interview that his company has destroyed more than $5 million worth of assault weapons in the chain store’s inventory and turned the weapons into scrap metal.
“I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them,’” CEO Edward W. Stack told CBS Sunday Morning.
Stack said his company was reviewing whether it would continue to sell guns in the chain’s stores, which number more than 700.
Stack said he’d been grappling with the ethics of selling assault weapons since the February 2018 school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed. The suspect in the attack bought a gun in a Dick’s store, and even though that particular gun wasn’t used in the school shooting, Stack said the massacre forced him to confront hard questions.
What a waste. Looks like Dick’s isn’t interested in profits meanwhile their massive chains have all but killed the market for mom and pop shops. People who would appreciate their customers and couldn’t afford to just flush $5 million dollars to please liberals.
Earlier this year, Dick’s stopped selling guns and hunting rifles at 125 locations after a 10-store test showed “positive results”.
Others have followed suit. Walmart announced last month that it would discontinue handgun sales in Alaska and the sale of short-barrel rifle and handgun ammunition nationwide.
More than 120,000 people signed a Walmart employee petition protesting the company’s firearms sales since 22 people were killed at an El Paso, Texas location in August.
