Dick’s Goes Liberal And Loses Millions

His actions caused countless Americans to lose their jobs after his nationwide gun ban from the sporting goods store.

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack is okay with his company’s loss of $150 million because he believes the stance for gun control was worth it.

Bloomberg.com reports that Dick’s lost “about $150 million” after coming out for gun control, yet Stack continues to stand his ground. He addressed America’s gun policy, saying, “The system does not work. It’s important that when you know there’s something that’s not working, and it’s to the detriment of the public, you have to stand up.”

On February 28, 2018–two weeks after the attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School–Dick’s announced they would no longer sell “assault rifles” or “high capacity” magazines. They also raised their minimum purchase age for long guns to 21.

On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s would not be sending unsold “assault rifles” and “high capacity” magazines back to manufacturers. Rather, they would destroy them.

By late August 2018 sales reports indicated Dick’s gun control stance was hurting business, but instead of doing away with anti-gun polices Dick’s expanded them by scaling back on hunting gear as well. Dick’s also announced they might have to close upwards of 35 stores nationwide, but they continued to stand their ground on gun control.

On March 13, 2019, Breitbart News reported that sales had dropped precipitously enough that Dick’s would be pulling all guns from 125 stores nationwide. CEO Stack admitted the company’s gun control stance was hurting business but offered no indication that Dick’s plans to reverse course.

  1. I’ve been a steady customer but only for ammo now. If they quit Gander will be my new comparison store for shopping.

  2. This should be up to the stockholders. The CEO works for them. I suggest during the vote for a board seriously look at who is running because they vote on the CEO. Basically if the CEO loses that much $$ he or she is FIRED!

  3. I agree. They must be all for socialism. They sure screwed up on that one. If you are a sporting goods store, you sell all. . .or none! They will lose their ass. KARMA!

  4. Apparently this guy isn’t intelligent enough to know that in general the outdoor type that spends real money at Dick’s is conservative. He thinks he’s going to get enough liberal joggers to sustain the business. GOODBYE DICK’S! Another liberal bent company bites the dust!!!

  5. I generally admire a person who stands by their beliefs. My belief is that Stack is 100 percent wrong in his anti gun stance. A public unarmed is a dead sitting duck for the criminal who doesn’t hesitate to acquire weaponry of all sorts by legal means or otherwise. Let’s keep it real people, walls work, guns for defense save lives….

  6. You have to stand for something or fall for anything. Although I may not agree totally with their decision I respect that they are standing their ground instead of listening to others that disagree with them.

  7. Stupid is as stupid does ,go broke because of stupidity, what does everyone think about him owning a gun with large capacity magazine

  8. There’s no need to get insulting about a business making a bad decision. Just stop buying anything from Dick’s and soon they will change or cease to exist. Think about all the people who are going to look for new jobs. These poor misguided business execs really think that guns kill people. With that kind of twisted thinking it’s easy to see how they will fail. So let’s help them to go away.

  9. Looks to me like Dick is what his name implies, a D**k.! I recently went shopping for my sons birthday at GOLF GALAXY. Not being golfer I looked around and suddenly discovered it was a sister store to Dicks Sporting Goods. I told the clerk that I could not buy anything from his store. He was sad and dejected but understood. I left and gave my son cash to buy what he wanted from where he wanted but I just told him to NOT buy anything from Dicks. Some people have no business sense but instead are ruled by their emotions as are most liberal progressives. When Dicks goes out of business maybe I’ll buy stuff there for 80% off to stick it to them. Ah, sweet revenge !!!!!!

  10. Citizens of this country should follow the liberals by boycotting all companies like Dick’s. Then sit and wait.

  11. Citizens of this country should follow the liberals by boycotting all companies like Dick’s. Then sit and wait to see what happens…

  12. It’s a shame a man is brainwashed by the left that he would rather lose his entire business and put who knows how many people out of work he’s going down a slippery slope
    Now on another note and people better listen or you will be sitting gun less
    Now all dems want red laws pushed in every state so that any Joe blow can complain about you for no reason and tgey want to kick your door down and take your guns I know cause some woman brought it up in in a town hall meeting and to be honest she had no clue about what she was saying it was just something she had heard and with no thought of her own she just started talking the bad thing is every dem in the room was nodding in agreement you could not say anything because they ended the meeting I see where a lot of states have dem representatives already putting it up for a vote so you better see what your state is doing because they are not broadcasting what tgey are doing

  13. This is true virtue signalling. dick’s opened another brand of stores that DOES sell guns. They know they can make money off guns and that is what they will do. Hate Dick’s products whether it includes guns or not and dislike one person trying to tell society what they should be allowed to buy, even if it goes against the constitution.

  14. Havn’t been into a Dick”s sporting goods store since they pulled the gun stunt

  15. so you anti-control people are okay with some nut killing your loved ones because they have easy access to any kind of gun.

  16. Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops thank the idoit that runs Dick’s. I can’t understand how a liberal, gun hating elitist get in a position to destroy a good company.

    1. It’s called The Lucky Sperm Club. His father founded the store and he and his siblings bought his parents out decades ago and built the Empire that it is now.

  17. There are entry of other places to buy from! I hope they go out of business!

    Buy Cabelas/ Bass Pro Shop

  18. She’s no better than a prostitute she sold her self for a gain and she is still doing it and then she wants us to trust her with what she’s doing in our country bullshit typical liberal snowflake Democrat and then they bust Robert Krafts balls what a disgrace !!!!!!

  19. The policy was flawed and ill-thought when he presented the same, and apparently such lack of sound management resulting in a $150M loss is acceptable. How many companies could afford to keep such a person?

  20. I went in to a Dick’s Sporting Goods maybe 5-6 years ago. Did not see anything of a good value and then they started acting like Socialists and communists regarding our 2nd Amendment. I have not and will never step foot in that POS pretty boy/girl sports fashion store ever again.

  21. Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shop’s have everything that our family needs to Purchase. I do not see myself darkening the entrance of Dicks store, well EVER…. What an easy decision.

  22. I SHOP ACADEMY SPORTS ONLY NOW! I Have not stepped into a Dicks Sporting Goods in over 10 Years EVER SINCE ACADEMY SPORTING GOODS CAME TO FLORIDA!! DIE A SLOW DEATH dicky’s!!!!!! Lousy Inventory, Lousy Sales People (IF YOU CAN FIND ONE) & HIGH Prices!! BYE BYE!
