Dicks Sporting Goods has announced it will stop selling guns and ammo at 125 of its 729 stores. Weak sales of hunting and shooting products have caused the retailer to go in a different direction.
In 2018 Dick’s stopped selling guns to anyone under 21, and stopped selling semi automatic rifles all together. The back lash from the hunting and shooting community had a major effect on profits. After a low 4th quarter, and a soft profit forecast Dick’s stock dropped 10%
Not only did Dick’s stop selling semiautomatic rifles, they also hired 3 anti gun lobbyist and sent them to Washington. Dick’s is now spending money in an attempt to limit my personal freedom. This is why I will not shop at Dick’s for anything.
