Have never stepped foot in one. What the stockholder's say about destroying profit?

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man
is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more
is a congress." - John Adams (1735-1826)

Never had a reason to go into one and now there's another reason to ensure I never even think about it.

I saw a bumper sticker on a car recently that I liked.

It said "Shop at Dave's they aren't a bunch of Dick's"

Saw the sticker on the car when going into a store and was going to take a picture of it on the way out but as usual these days I forgot.

Is GM, Ford and Fiat Chrysler going to start destroying cars to prevent drunk driving?
Yes I know, that makes about as much sense.

They'll probably deduct them as "inventory spoilage".

I went to a Dick's store once. I found the prices absolutely outrageous and the service atrocious so I have never returned.

I suppose that is a form of boycott.

I am a practicing Curmudgeon, someone that hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so.

This is now about the 5th boycott called for Dicks. I have never been there, so I will just keep doing that.

That's a good point. They probably haven't moved much volume in that market. If their inventory is commensurate with their demand, they probably don't have that many. They probably believe that the cost to them, is a fraction of the positive PR they will gain. Sorry to say, they might replace more customers than they lose. They will make it up in volleyballs and tennis rackets. Just hope nobody gets beat to death with a baseball bat. They will have to burn them all.

Never been in one and never will be.

I'm sure the 'bean counters' won't care UNTIL their stupidity hits their bottom line.

Dick’s Sporting Goods to DESTROY their AR-15s
Rifles Removed from Store Shelves will NOT be Returned to Manufacturers
Posted 1 day ago in Buyer's Guide, Shooting by Adam Scepaniak

Dick’s Sporting Goods took the stance of removing AR-15s from their Field & Stream stores on February 28th following the Parkland shooting. What many consumers wanted to know following this attempt at virtue signaling is what will happen to the firearms?… Well, now we have our answer.

Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided they will DESTROY all of their standing inventory of AR-15 firearms and related accessories. Most sane businessmen and businesswomen would consider selling that unmoved inventory back to the original manufacturers or distributors to recoup the cost of all that product. Dick’s has decided to forgo that logical idea and just destroy everything.

A spokeswoman representing Dick’s Sporting Goods and Field & Stream had these statements to make regarding the issue:

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. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.

The process of legally destroying a firearm, per the guidelines of the ATF, is not as easy or simple as one may think. To believe this company is willing to throw away and destroy that much product and would be able to competently destroy an AR-15 is a bit of a stretch.

Currently they are combating two different lawsuits over their new age limit on firearm purchases being raised to the age of 21 years old.

This is the second time Dick’s Sporting Goods has made an effort to “virtue signal” after a national tragedy. Back in 2012 they removed AR-15s from their store shelves, but those firearms were removed with no mention as to what happened to them.

The Pittsburgh-Post Gazette gathered these remarks as they were the news source that originally spoke with the spokeswoman from Dick’s Sporting Goods and Field & Stream:

The so-called assault-style rifles will be destroyed at the company’s distribution centers and the parts sent to a salvage company to be recycled, the Findlay-based retailer added. The company did not say how much merchandise would be included.

For now, we will wait to see if they actually destroy those firearms from more than 35 Field & Stream stores.

I'm sure there are millions of firearm abolitionist who will now shop at Dick's to take up the slack.

I've been boycotting them since they pulled their black rifles off the shelves the first time. This is nothing more than corporate stupidity at it's finest.

I have boycotted Dicks my whole life.

But on a serious note, I have boycotted since the black rifle mess started. Shame because I used to find some good deals on some of their sales.
