You’d think Dick’s Sporting Goods would have figured out by now that playing along with this so-called ‘boycott’ is not exactly great for business but … nope.
Hey, far be it for us to tell them how to ruin, err, run their business but this seems needlessly stupid.
Like most boycotts.
Dick’s standing firm on its decision to stop selling assault-style rifles. And how… “Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them.” https://t.co/bZF94l7Mao via @PittsburghPG

Well, THAT’LL stop bad guys from doing bad things.
Holy crap you guys, they think this is a good idea.
Good, more business for @Cabelas

Dick's is actively destroying their stock of AR-15s and other rifles. https://t.co/J2bqqLJ97F

Wonder how their stock holders feel about that?
Is their destruction being monitored to be sure it's done legally?

Seems like it’s more important to them that they can pat themselves on the backs for ‘doing something about gun violence’ than their own business succeeding.
This is a win win. More will be made and manufacturers still get their money.

HA! Gonna bet Dick’s didn’t think about how they’re just driving up demand.
So it's not really about "making sure they're in the right hands". It's about getting rid of them.

Which is really what it’s been about from the beginning.
But we all knew that already.
