The headline: Dick’s Sporting Goods stops selling “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines! In reality, Dick’s stopped selling modern sporting rifles and standard capacity ammunition magazines in 2012, after the Newtown massacre. Only their Field & Stream subsidiary continued to sell ARs and “hi-cap” mags. But here’s the thing . . .
The company’s official statement goes WAY beyond simply announcing that they “don’t want to be part of the story” of mass shootings. Check out the raft of gun control measures listed in their official statement:
The retailer is actively lobbying for universal background checks (i.e., federal gun registration) and a national gun owners’ registry — as well as Federal bans on “assault weapons,” “high capacity magazine,” bump stocks.
Dick’s is now an out-of-the-closet gun control advocate, itching to help the civilian disarmament movement push its anti-2A agenda. Anyone who supports American firearms freedom who spends a dime at Dick’s is helping degrade and destroy their natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
So now you know.
