Thread: Dick’s Cost Itself Millions With Its Anti-Gun Policies.

    Dick’s Cost Itself Millions With Its Anti-Gun Policies.

    Dick’s Sporting Goods took a loss of an estimated $150 million in sales last year after the company heavily restricted firearm purchases and began advocating for gun control.

    The company made various policy changes after a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, left 17 dead. It announced it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles or high-capacity magazines and increased the purchase age for all firearms to 21.

    Dick’s also hired anti-gun lobbyists to promote gun restriction legislation, despite saying it still supports the Second Amendment ...

    The anti-gun shift made massive waves when it was first announced in February 2018 and Stack was accused of violating fiduciary duties by knowingly and purposely giving up money. Some gun manufacturers cut ties with Dick’s and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) expelled the company from its membership. The loss of customers was also almost immediately felt.

    “Sales are so anemic and relations with gun manufacturers such as Mossberg so poor right now that you’ve even indicated Dick’s might get out the gun business entirely,” David Almasi, a vice president at the National Center for Public Policy Research, said in June on a shareholder’s call. “Meanwhile, Sportsman’s Warehouse reports that their gun sales and net sales were up 15 percent during the first quarter. That company credits consumer backlash against companies such as Dick’s as partially responsible for its success.”

    However, Stack also received praise from anti-gun activists, and a “buycott” was even launched to reward Dick’s with purchase power. The loss in gun sales ultimately outweighed the gain from the buycott, which eventually ran out of steam. Regardless, Stack revealed that the $150 million loss was worth it, according to a Bloomberg report published on Friday.

    “Love is fleeting,” Stack said. “Hate is forever.” https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/29/d...ion-gun-sales/
    Dick's did it to itself for no reason. No research supports the hysteria.

    I find myself boycotting places and products at the drop of a hat now, just because I'm sick to death of having politics shoved in my face every ten minutes.

    Example: Do you REALLY want to politicize something as stupid and benign as razors?

    Because that could cost you a customer for life at this point.

    Holy fuck, who needs piety preached at them from some Godless, global corporation?

    And yet there can't be any logic to supporting Democrat whatever they support.

    The left is still hysterical and hostile, the left and right will never “co-exist”.

    I don't even really need to try to boycott Dick's they never were a great place to buy guns or ammo. It's not really a big loss. Though I can definitely see how they would have cut out their bread and butter. I know a lot of people did just fucking impulse buy rifles and shotguns in there. My father was notorious for that shit. My boyfriend too.
