Dick's CEO Says They Destroyed $5M Worth Of Assault Rifles

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack told CBS News that his company destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of private hands.

Ed Stack told CBS News during an interview that the millions of dollars worth of inventory was turned into scrap metal. “I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them.”

The Hill:

The CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods says that after the company made the decision to no longer sell assault-style rifles, more than $5 million worth of the weapons were destroyed.

In an interview with CBS News that aired Sunday, Ed Stack said following the decision last year to stop offering assault-style rifles, the question of what to with the remaining inventory lingered.

“I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them,'” Stack said, adding that the company turned $5 million worth of the weapons into scrap metal.

Dick’s made the decision to stop carrying the rifles following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 dead and reignited the national conversation surrounding gun control.

“We found out that we sold this kid a shotgun,” Stack said. “That’s when I said, ‘We’re done.'” More

This is an absolute failure of fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders. Now, if I was a stockholder of Dick’s Sporting Goods, I would be suing them for destroying profitable products for no good reason.

In November 2016, Dick’s stock was selling at just over $60/share. Today, it’s at $38/share, a huge loss. When companies start jumping on the SJW bandwagon, it’s time for investors to start walking.

Virginia Democrats Announce Plans to Restore Gun Rights… to Convicted Murderers

Virginia Democrats have finally found a group they DO want to give more gun rights to and apparently they are convicted murderers

Published

Well, it looks like Virginia Democrats have finally found a group they DO want to give more gun rights to and apparently that group is convicted murderers!

Virginia Democrats are busily trying to take away gun rights from as many classes of law-abiding Virginians as they can. One law, for instance is SB 240, the state Democrat’s new “red flag” law. The law would allow police to instantly take away a citizen’s guns if but one person complains that the targeted citizen “might” be “a danger” to themselves or those around them.

One might assume that at some level the definition of “a danger” just might include a criminal record.

Well, you would be wrong, at least in the case of one class of criminals to whom Democrats want to ignore a criminal record and restore gun rights.

Shockingly, state Democrats want to reinstate the gun rights of convicted murderers who are under the age of 17.

As The Blaze reported:

Virginia attorney Hans Bader warns that prominent Democrats in both houses of the legislature are supporting HB 274, a bill that raises the age for when a juvenile criminal conviction triggers a ban on that individual owning or transporting firearms.

Under current Virginia law, juveniles may be tried as adults for violent offenses beginning at age 14. This bill will would raise the age to 16. In addition, under current law (§18.2-308.2(A)), it is prohibited for “any person adjudicated delinquent as a juvenile 14 years of age or older at the time of the offense of murder in violation of § 18.2-31 or 18.2-32, kidnapping in violation of § 18.2-47, robbery by the threat or presentation of firearms in violation of § 18.2-58, or rape in violation of § 18.2-61 … to knowingly and intentionally possess or transport any firearm or ammunition for a firearm.”

This bill would change the age threshold from 14 to 16, meaning that anyone convicted of a violent murder under the age of 16 would still be able to legally possess a firearm.

In other words, teens who have already used guns in violent crimes would be allowed to keep their firearms as far as Virginia Democrats are concerned.

So, let’s recap. In Virginia, Democrats want laws that say:

Adults who were not convicted of anything can have their Second Amendment rights summarily eliminated without a trial under the Democrat Red Flag law.

But…

Teenagers who have already used guns to kill someone will be allowed to keep their guns.

Once again, we see that Democrats are the most dangerous element in American society.

Lying Media Desperately Hoped Virginia Gun Rally Would Turn Violent

A review of coverage of Monday’s rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.

Published

A review of coverage of Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Virginia by the fake news media shows they desperately hoped there would be bloodshed.

Extremist, left-wing cable network MSNBC led the way on Monday morning’s coverage. Just as rally goers were gathering, the extremist “news” network labeled the participants as dangerous terrorists who were sure to begin killing people by the scores.

MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin started out by falsely labeling the rally in Richmond, Virginia, as being attended by “armed militia,” and “white nationalist groups from all over the country.”

This is a flat out lie.

Still, he rambled on saying, “This is the scene in Richmond. Armed militia, white nationalist groups from all over the country taking part on MLK day.” He added that state officials “fear a dangerous confrontation.”

In another segment this liar gasped that “Right now, thousands of guns rights activists, white nationalists, militia groups all swarming the Virginia state capitol in Richmond.”

This garbage was typical of the media’s coverage of the day’s rally. But as it turned out, not a single negative incident occurred. All that happened was real Americans turned out to denounce Virginia’s elimination of American Second Amendment rights.

Others in the media were just as bad. Check out this montage of some of the worst offenders:

Oh, and the accusation that the rally was just a “white nationalist” rally? This black man who attended sure did not think so:

But once the rally went off without any of the violence, mayhem, arrests, and bloodletting that the liberal media wanted, that same media was sure annoyed by the law abiding gun owners.

Black 2A Supporter Has A Few Choice Words For MSM Who Characterized Gun Rights Rally As ‘Racist’

“Mainstream media be damned.”

Published

on

An attendee at the Richmond Virginia gun rights rally today dispelled the MSM smears against rally-goers.

He says the media is mischaracterizing them, & that they are just law-abiding citizens who want to advocate for their constitutional rights.

“Every news piece you’ve seen this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as thought its nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here that care for the Second Amendment,” said the man.

“When actually, black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans, in general, care about the 2nd Amendment,” the man continued. “I work at a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the 2nd Amendment and who just want to peaceably, live their lives, enjoy their rights, and their 2nd Amendment.”

This is outstanding to see fellow Americans stand up for our rights black, white, brown, or yellow it makes no difference we are all patriots at heart.

It was reported the attendance at the rally was about 22,000. Did anyone see the violence that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and the MSM predicted? Neither did I… So who’s the greatest fear monger: President Trump or Governor Northam?

Texas Gunman Tries to Shoot Up Church, Is Taken Out by Armed Worshipers in Seconds

A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire.

A dead monster in Texas tried to shoot up a church with a gun but after opening fire, armed churchgoers took him out with return fire. The incident lasted only about six seconds.

The video of the incident is amazing for how quickly the shooter is identified, confronted, and shot down:

Unfortunately, the creep killed two worshipers at the West Freeway Church of Christ in the Fort Worth, Texas, suburb of White Settlement. But the killer was also taken out in seconds preventing him from doing even more damage.

The incident occurred at 10:57 on Sunday morning and was caught live on the church livestream of its weekly service.

Witnesses said that the killer entered the church wearing a fake beard, and sunglasses and began his attack after taking communion.

Three victims were taken to the hospital, one died on the way, and a second died while being treated.

The shooter was also pronounced dead at the scene.

“Our hearts go out to the victims and families of those killed in the evil act of violence that occurred at the West Freeway Church of Christ,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a public statement. “Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life. ”

The FBI noted that an investigation is underway:

Thanks to an armed churchman, the attack lasted only six seconds, White Settlement Police Chief J.P. Bevering said.

“The suspect is deceased, and the threat has stopped thanks to the heroic action of those two parishioners at the church,” Bevering told the media.
