CheaperThanDirt.com announced via Facebook only minutes ago that they are suspending all firearms sales. The company is best known for their sales of ammunition and firearm accessories, but had recently begun selling actual guns as well. The company posted the the following message . . .
Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately. We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.
It looks like this may simply be a temporary suspension of sales, but given the recent news about Freedom Group I’m not holding my breath. The backlash was both quick and vitriolic on their Facebook page:
Ridiculously politically correct. Unfortunately politically correct is usually wrong. Terrible move! [JM]
