    I’m going to give them a 60/40. They did more than just get rid of assault rifles from their stores.

    Thing is the average guy who is into that platform doesn’t want to buy them from a box store who doesn’t even know where the safety is on them.

    Let the box stores sell a few more soccer balls and let the small arms stores sell the sporting arms.

    Who can blame any national retailer for not wanting to be a part of this.
    Cruz was living in the home of an Army Intel officer sho knew he had the weapons and should have known his history. Cruz was called on 39 times by the BSO who, if they had arrested him, would have made his ownership of the weapons illegal.

    The semi-autos with pistol grips are now the poster symbol. Dicks probably does not want their stores attacked by CNN zombies. So removing from the stores is probably not a bad idea for now. If there is really money to made they may go back to mail order.

    Frustration setting in.

    Corporations realize some of this “common sense” isn’t business sense.

    That was their goal to make headlines and close a few less stores this year.

    Stock continues to struggle to stay above $30. We will see how much business they lose from this. Amazon is smiling at the PR move.

    The equivalent for those stores to Dicks PR stunt would be for them to ban coupons lol.

    It seems the Russians or Chinese or North Koreans or Iranians must be influencing Dicks and Walmart. Foreign hostile entities have the most to gain by disarming the US.
