Dick’s Sporting Goods Solidifies Anti-Gun Reputation

Dick’s Sporting Goods, which announced in February it would no longer sell rifles to anyone under the age of 21, hired three Beltway lobbyists to lobby Congress for gun control, according to federal records reviewed by The Federalist.

The lobbying records show Dick’s hired two Democrats and one Republican from Glover Park Group, a DC-based government affairs firm, for “[l]obbying related to gun control.”

Sounds like a good reason to not buy anything from them in the future. If they are so interested in Gun Control they don't deserve any of my business period.

    I’m going to go nuts when they have their ammo going-out-off-business clearance sale 😎

    What I fail to understand is *why* they're doing this as a business. Ok, fine - they don't want to sell guns. But how does hiring anti-gun lobbyists do the square root of eff all for their business?

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Because if they don't sell it, they don't want anyone too.
