As you know, Dick’s Sporting Goods caved to anti-gun media pressure after the Parkland, Florida shooting.
Their weak-kneed response resulted in their decision to no longer sell so-called “assault” weapons. Gun owners and gun rights supporters know that there’s not a real definition of what makes an assault weapon, not to mention that there’s almost no functional difference between many common hunting rifles and their “scary” black counterparts.
But now Dick’s is taking their anti-gun stupidity to new levels. They announced they’re going to destroy ALL of the so-called assault rifles in their inventory.
Dick’s Sporting Goods will destroy all the guns and accessories that it stopped selling in late February.
In a statement to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette earlier this month, a company spokeswoman said it is “in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories” associated with the policy change.
The retail giant will be destroying the assault-style rifles at the company’s distribution centers and the remaining parts will be sent to a salvage company to be recycled.
They’re literally destroying their own valuable inventory — they may as well shred $100 dollar bills.
