Breaking: The Anti-Gun Push Just Backfired on Dick’s Sporting Goods

By

Dick’s Sporting Goods has reportedly lost out on their firearms business after several manufactures have severed ties with them do to their Anti-Gun Agenda.

As reported by foxnews.com

Several major gun manufacturers said they were severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods in response to the company’s February announcement it would no longer sell assault-style weapons due to the deadly Parkland school shooting.

O.F. Mossberg & Sons Inc., the parent company of Mossberg guns, announced Wednesday they would no longer be doing business with the sports retailer. Mossberg & Sons ended its association with Dick’s after Dick’s hired three Washington, D.C., lobbyists to push for gun control efforts, the National Review reported.

“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control,” Mossberg & Sons CEO Iver Mossberg wrote in a press release. “Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.”

Kind of saw this one coming. You can’t really sell guns in your store but then advocate against guns. It’s a pretty poor business model don’t you think?
