What a bunch of dick's

Dick's, Major Gun Retailer, Will Stop Selling Assault-Style Rifles

One of the nation’s largest sports retailers, Dick’s Sporting Goods, said Wednesday morning it was immediately ending sales of all assault-style rifles in its stores.

The retailer also said that it would no longer sell high-capacity magazines and that it would not sell any gun to anyone under 21 years of age, regardless of local laws.

The announcement, made two weeks after the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 students and staff members, is one of the strongest stances taken by corporate America in the national gun debate. It also carries symbolic weight, coming from a prominent national gun seller.

Buh bye Dicks. You won't be missed. I was in one once and never bought anything.
Looked like a hipster faggot store I was surprised to hear they sold guns.

They stopped 6 years ago after Sandy Hook. This is regurgitated old news.

http://www.businessinsider.com/dicks-sporting-goods-will-stop-selling-assault-rifles-2018-2

Dick's suspended sales of assault-style rifles from its stores in 2012 after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. But the company soon after began selling the type of AR-15 semiautomatic rifle that was used in the shooting at a new hunting and fishing chain called Field & Stream.

The new policies on assault-style weapons will primarily impact the roughly 30 Field & Stream stores across the US, as traditional Dick's locations did not bring the firearms back into stores.

Expect more of this as time goes on. If another mass shooting happens expect a whole lot more action - and quick.

The "Gaylans Trading Company" is just a name only.....Gaylans was an old school adventure outfitter. The go to store for hunter's, fisherman and trappers in Indiana. The name was/is still so well known that The Dick's at Dick's know that if they didn't retain control of that name anyone with 20 cents and a tradmark inside of an hour of going back into business as a Gaylans.....Dick's business would dry up.

Dick's is a trendy hiker sweater store anyway. They sell tiny bells and pepper spray for bears. If you see any bear shit on the ground that has tiny bells in it and smells like pepper, you'll know that the bears most recent meal shopped at Dicks

As already pointed out in this thread Dick's has done this before. Just another free advertising ploy. Not too many people buy their ARs at farkin Dicks sporting goods. That's like buying gas station sushi!

Well, GB, there's nothing wrong with yoga pants on the right figure. There's an idea. We could all hang out in the yoga pants section of Dickie's Sporting Goods, watching the girls try on the Y-pants. If they ask us about it, we could tell them we're just waiting for the AR's to come back into stock.

Does anyone know if the Phallus sporting goods store dropped the 10/22?

Never mind....still selling them....I wonder if they would if it was tricked out with an sweet Tacti-cool set up?

DOOD! It's almost lunchtime here! ...now I've lost my appetite.

How about some weight restrictions on the sale of yoga pants? I mean goobermint/corporations seem to want to restrict everything else, why should heifers like those pictured above get to assail people's eyeballs? lol

So I guess the dicks that run Dick's don't mind that 18yo boys have to register for the draft, but cannot buy a semi-automatic long gun ...or a freaking drink for that matter. Why don't we just go ahead and stop pretending 18 - 20 = adult then? Oh right the goobermint needs fresh meat right out of HS for the military machinery.

Dammit, Shoot! I said there's nothing wrong with yoga pants on the right figure. What kind of girls do you like?
I don't like girls actually and I believe it's always good to point out the 800 pound elephants in the room, don't you think SOG? :belly laugh:

No matter how beautiful a woman is there's always someone who's tired of putting up with her shit! That's life's reality!

This is beautiful! She won't talk back or steal your hard earned money and she'll never hurt you!

Well that's shocking(not). A 20 year old Dick's employee that doesn't appreciate being discriminated against based upon his age.

He sure does. I wonder if Obama will be claiming him as the son he never had. lol

Here are some more great "kids" that made a mark on American history.



Sorry, no guns or booze for you "kids", but thanks for helping to build a nation.

Like Irons, my impression is the same as his.
Went in twice, never to return.

I bought a kayak on sale there but their prices for much of what they sell is in the yikes category. They seem really fond of stuffing that Yeti crap into every other end cap(that's not an exaggeration).
Now a lot of you probably shop a different version of Dick's than we do here in Nebraska. Ours are very large. Most of you probably have smaller Dick's but our Dick's are enormous.

Wonder how many people tried doing an internet search for the store and what the results were. I have heard if you search for the white house, you may get a porn site.
