Dick’s Sporting Goods’ anti-gun campaign has made a big dent in the company’s profits.
Dick’s CEO Edward Stack – with evident pressure from the media and anti-gun lobby – has embarked on an escalating series of policies to restrict the chain’s sale of guns, at one point a significant part of the company’s revenue stream.
…Stack went so far as to formally collaborate with the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety and to sign a letter endorsing gun control bills pending on Capitol Hill. His company even retained corporate lobbyists to press Congress for additional gun control.
Now Bloomberg’s own media outlet, Bloomberg.com, is reporting that Dick’s itself estimates the price of its anti-gun advocacy at $150 million in lost sales in 2018, or almost 2% of the company’s annual revenue.
Dick’s is one of several large corporations that has moved to appease the liberal establishment by enacting anti-gun policies. Read Gunpowder Magazine’s list of businesses to boycott if you value your Second Amendment rights here and sign the citizens’ boycott to avoid these companies.
