Tim Brown: Stupid Is As Stupid Does: Dick’s Sporting Goods To Destroy Their AR-15 Semi-Automatic Rifles Inventory

[Editor's note: Long have I regarded DC Clothesline, which republished this article from Freedom Outpost, as a trustworthy source of information. But when I published a comment about this article that laid out the facts about Sandy Hook and Parkland, it was deleted. So I published a second and have no doubt that it will be deleted as well.


See "The Parkland Puzzle: How the Pieces fit Together" to appreciate the enormity of the blunder. So this has been "a learning experience", not only about the stupidity of Dick's Sporting Goods but also about the censorship imposed by DC Clothesline, which may be even more repulsive. Comments are embedded in the text. We are a nation of idiots.]

Well, I can say they are at least being consistent, though very stupid.  Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced that they will be destroying their inventory of semi-automatic rifles that they refer to as “assault weapons” due to their new policy change.
Earlier this year, Dick’s and other retailers decided to pull AR-15s from their shelves and not sell any rifles to law-abiding citizens under 21.
Now, they are just going to model the destruction of perfectly good firearms just like Communist and totalitarian government of the past have done.  Only in this case, they actually own these weapons.
“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a company spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
“We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations,” she added.

The unsold inventory will be destroyed at the company’s distribution centers.  Parts will then be sent to a salvage company for recycling, according to Dick’s
A number of the guns was not made available, but it really is
hypocritical when they continue to sell semi-automatic
handguns, which are far easier to conceal and you are able
to purchase 30 round magazines for many of them such as
the Glock 19 and 17.  So, what exactly are they accomplishing
Nothing, except destroying an inventory that would make
them money and money for their stockholders.
All of this came as a result of the shooting that took place in 
Florida at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in
Parkland on February 14 of this year, where 17 were killed by
confessed shooter Nikolas Cruz.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) praised Dick’s CEO Ed Stack 
as a “Great American” for his illegal actions concerning age
discrimination and pulling AR-15s from the shelves.
We would expect nothing less from Feinstein, and now Dick’s
has apparently lost a major part of the gun market.  That
means more profits for competitors who don’t bow down to
the political  correctness of the Communist gun grabbers in
DC, their states and the little children who cry about the
availability of guns in America.

  1. Morning James. I was just reading on James Tracy's site about Alex Jones getting sued over his Sandy Hoax comments from parents who's kids "died". I think the story came from Huffing-your-post. They are going after Alex but not you. Hmmmm. I recently checked the FBI's crime stats and it still showed zero murders for Newtown. My guess is there is no chance in hell of Alex's case going to trial since they would have to produce death certificates for not just the children but the adults as well. Could they be anything but a fraud? by Dave kraft

    Here we come motherfucker!

    You can't add 2+2? That's your problem. Time do drain some bank accounts.

  3. Guns are not complicated or difficult to manufacture, IF you have the set up for it.

    A small garage sized metal shop is all it takes.
