‘YIKES! Dick’s CUT OFF’! Latest blow makes things EVEN WORSE for the floundering ‘sporting goods’ chain

Dick’s Sporting Goods has run into a good bit of trouble since caving to the social media mob about guns back in February. We’re starting to wonder if they ever really understood their own demographic in the first place. Pretty sure some guy in a man bun wearing a ‘Hillary is MY President’ t-shirt and drinking a Chai tea wasn’t shopping in their stores in the first place …

But we digress.

Mossberg cuts off @dicks over anti-gun lobbying activities. https://t.co/HL87YHdhy3

From The Truth About Guns:

O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., a leading American firearms manufacturer, announced today its decision to discontinue selling products to Dick’s Sporting Goods, and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring of gun control lobbyists in April 2018.

“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control,” said Iver Mossberg, Chief Executive Officer of O.F. Mossberg & Sons. “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.”

Seriously, it’s like Dick’s wants to go out of business.

Thinking it’s time they just dropped the ‘Sporting Goods’ from their name (see what we did there?).

“Cuts off dicks” heh heh heh

Funny, my Facebook memory today was a video of us using a water balloon slingshot to attack the guard tower on our 12 man fire base in Iraq.

That’s ingenuity right there.

Don’t mind us, we’re just watching two badasses chit-chat on Twitter. *popcorn*

Mossberg is the largest shotgun manufacturer in the US, and shotguns may be the best selling firearms at big box stores like Dick’s. That’s gonna leave a mark.

Right? But hey, at least Dick’s can say they’re doing something about gun violence … if that something is eventually going out of business.
