Shortly after the hideous and tragic mass murder of 17 people (mostly children) at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, anti-gun activist organizations mobilized five of the surviving students including the sneering fascist punk David Hogg mobilized to launch a ruthless cyberbullying campaign.
Other than the widely demonized NRA, targets included retailers who sold guns that the totalitarian left would want banned and God forbid if the spineless corporate types didn’t cave and surrender to Hogg and those who bankrolled him.
One of those was Dick’s Sporting Goods which quickly moved to ban the sales of certain types of firearms from their national sporting goods chain
We deeply believe that this country's most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe. Beginning today, DICK'S Sporting Goods is committed to the following: https://t.co/J4OcB6XJnu pic.twitter.com/BaTJ9LaCYe

This only served to infuriate Second Amendment supporters who vowed to take their business elsewhere and now karma has come around to bite them in the ass with razor-sharp teeth.
Dick’s is paying the price for changing its gun policy earlier this year. The sporting goods company reported its sales were down in both stores and online. → https://t.co/nCzANIzytb pic.twitter.com/pRZVQh5oda

Get Woke, Go Broke? DICK’S Sporting Goods Warns Investors That Decision To Get Rid Of Guns Cost Company Dearly
Via The Daily Wire
Dick’s Sporting Goods is warning investors that its decision to remove certain “assault-style” weapons from its Field & Stream stores cost it dearly and may limit its future gains.
The sporting goods retailer was forced to confront angry shareholders late last week after its stocks tanked more than 4.5% and financial conglomerate J.P. Morgan Chase downgraded Dick’s shares, saying the company was “overweight.”
“Gross margin-driven upside appears less probable given 3Q’s performance, changing comparisons, and rising inventory levels,” an analyst for J.P. Morgan told CNBC. The same analyst noted that same-store sales for Dick’s outlets are expected to grow less than 1% even as the company’s inventory rises.
Another example of why smart people don’t mix business and politics.
