Dick’s Sporting Goods Comes Out in Favor of Gun Control, Loses $150 Million

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack is okay with his company’s loss of $150 million because he believes the stance for gun control was worth it.

From Breitbart:


Bloomberg.com reports that Dick’s lost “about $150 million” after coming out for gun control, yet Stack continues to stand his ground. He addressed America’s gun policy, saying, “The system does not work. It’s important that when you know there’s something that’s not working, and it’s to the detriment of the public, you have to stand up.”

On February 28, 2018–two weeks after the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School–Dick’s announced they would no longer sell “assault rifles” or “high capacity” magazines. They also raised their minimum purchase age for long guns to 21.

On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s would not be sending unsold “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines back to manufacturers. Rather, they would destroy them.

By late August 2018 sales reports indicated Dick’s gun control stance was hurting business, but instead of doing away with anti-gun polices Dick’s expanded them by scaling back on hunting gear as well. Dick’s also announced they might have to close upwards of 35 stores nationwide, but they continued to stand their ground on gun control.

  1. naturally like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I to find it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I will definitely
    come again again.

  2. Nice post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am
    impressed! Extremely helpful info particularly the last part
    🙂 I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this particular
    information for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  3. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before
    but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  4. My brother suggested I may like this website. He used to be totally right.
    This put up truly made my day. You cann’t believe simply how much
    time I had spent for this information! Thank you!

  5. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
