Who didn’t see this coming?
After caving to the anti-gun Leftists and their “student activist” props, Dick’s Sporting Goods has seen its sales go flaccid.
According to National Review, Dick’s stock also plunged.
The company’s shares fell 7.3 percent after going up 13 percent this year. Sales failed to hit the projected $2.74 billion, tapering off at $2.66 billion for this quarter.
Now to be fair, Dick’s Sporting Goods isn’t just losing business over their virtue-signaling. They face stiff competition from online giant Amazon as well as Nike.
But given that, why on earth would they decide now is a good time to alienate at least half their customer base?
And for what?
Slobbering praise from people who probably don’t shop at Dick’s?
Kneejerk emotional decisions aren’t good business practice.
And any company that can be so easily bullied by big-mouth activists and their teenage human shields doesn’t deserve to stay in business.
Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if a year from now, Dick’s Sporting Goods decides to quietly reintroduce the so-called “assault-style weapons” they pulled from the shelves.
And all it takes is one person suing them for age discrimination to put an end to their refusal to sell guns to someone under twenty-one.
But even if they do, tell Dick’s to stick it by shopping elsewhere.
