Dick’s Sporting Goods infuriated gun owners when they announced they were banning the sale of AR-15 rifles.
The CEO thought it’d be a better business decision to cater to the Left-wing “PC” Police than their actual customers.
But now Dick’s made a stunning admission that will make you shake your head in disgust.
Dick’s Sporting Goods’ CEO Ed Stack also chose to pull popular AR-15 rifles and so-called “high-capacity magazines” from inventory.
Stack said they destroyed all the AR-15’s they took off shelves and sold them for scrap metal.
But now the company revealed they’ve taken their anti-gun policy even further.
During a Sunday interview with CBS News, Stack revealed an interesting tidbit: he decided to scrap more than $5 million worth of AR-15s into scrap metal instead of selling the stock.
“I said, ‘You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, we need to destroy them,'” he explained.
Gun rights advocates boycotted the store over after the company’s decision to stop selling the modern sporting rifle, which Stack said cost his chain a quarter of a billion. He thought he would receive some flak but he didn’t expect the feedback he did.
The decision to stop selling AR-15 rifles has not helped Dick’s business.
Amid pressure from the Left, Walmart stopped selling rifles and sold off a healthy portion of their ammunition inventory.
But that hasn’t bought Walmart any quarter from the Left, who still reviles the company.
Dick’s has learned that the hard way.
Anti-gun leftists aren’t suddenly going to flock to the store.
Do you agree with Dick’s decision to stop selling the AR-15 rifle and sell their inventory for scrap metal?
