"The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries, Board of Governors today unanimously voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods from membership for conduct detrimental to the best interests of the Foundation.

Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired a Washington D.C.-based government affairs firm, for “[l]obbying related to gun control.” Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Edward W. Stack announced earlier this year the retail chain would end sales of modern sporting rifles, voluntarily raise the age to 21 to purchase firearms in their stores and called for more restrictive legislation. Dick’s later announced they would destroy the remaining modern sporting rifle inventory. NSSF responded that business decisions should be individually made, but was nonetheless disappointed and the decision does not reflect the reality of the vast majority of law-abiding gun owners."

Hope Dick's goes under. Hunters need to be vocal, to other hunters, to help accomplish this.

Springfield Armory dropped them as well...All this may have a greater impact on the F&S stores but I bet the guns, hunting & fishing departments in a Dick's store are a tiny piece of the revenue stream.

I did find it interesting that after they announced they would no longer sell the AR's and then announced they would be destroying current inventory, that F&S was still selling them...at least according to this article. http://thefederalist.com/2018/05/03/springfield-armory-severs-ties-dicks-sporting-goods-gun-control-lobbying/
