Title: Dick’s Destroyed $5 Mil. Worth of ‘Assault Rifles’ to Keep Them ‘Off the Street’

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack told CBS News that his company destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of private hands.

Dick’s announced a halt to “assault-style rifles” two weeks after the February 14, 2018, Parkland high school shooting. 

On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s was destroying its “assault-style rifle” inventory, rather than returning the firearms to their manufacturers. Fox News quoted a spokesperson from Dick’s saying, “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”

During his October 6, CBS News appearance, CEO Ed Stack said the company ended up destroying $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles.”

Stack also admitted the Dick’s gun control stance has resulted in “a quarter of a billion [dollars]” in loses. But Stack does not regret the gun control stance. Rather, he is considering taking the company even further down the gun control path.

As of right now, 100 Dick’s stores no longer sell guns of any kind. Stack is thinking about expanding that policy so that no Dick’s store sells a gun.

Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack told CBS News that his company destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of private hands.

They've repeated this endlessly but we have no proof whatsoever that a single gun was actually destroyed.

Where is the video, showing guns being destroyed? Where are the piles of gun parts, cut up and made useless?

I simply don't believe it. Anyone can make an announcement to the gungrabbing press who will predictably swoon over any announcement of guns being destroyed.

I really don't get why Breitbart and other outlets continue to parrot Dick's corporate propaganda. Why not demand to see what was destroyed? Find out exactly how many guns, what types, account for the scrap materials created and the disposal of the gun scrap.

I don't know - is that a lot for money for this guy? I imagine the shareholders must be particularly peeved and perturbed about the losses, doncha think?

So maybe WWG posted a valid question: I'm wondering who received them. Could it be Antifa, who this summer claimed that they are now training with weapons?

Dick' is selling the weapons (to antifa) and reporting them destroyed?

Sounds CT enough to be true.

You'd think that the shareholders could sue the company for taking a political stance on a legal product and costing the shareholders money. Apparently, the CEO and top managers think they can get away with it but you'd think there would be some angry shareholders to sue.

Hmmmm...Dick's was started by a guy named Stack some 70 years ago. In 1984, he was bought out by his kids and his son became CEO. He is still CEO today and has become a billionaire. No mention of how much of it he owns, how much his siblings own, etc. The business has expanded so much and owns other stores like the Field & Streams stores, so much so that it's hard to tell who owns what.

So for all practical purposes, Dick's starts to look like a closely held family-owned franchise, like Chik-fil-a or Hobby Lobby. In which case the stockholders, if any, could be ignored as long as the family is on board with what the CEO wants.

So maybe WWG posted a valid question: I'm wondering who received them. Could it be Antifa, who this summer claimed that they are now training with weapons?

I had more in mind that Dick's could just sell them off to other companies selling guns. Or it could have them disassembled and sell most of the parts. Just selling the guns would be easiest provided you sold them to someone who signed a contract that says they won't tell that they bought them from Dick's.

I just don't see a company destroying legal products when they could sell them to someone, under the table if necessary.

All I know is we see all this publicity about how they destroyed these guns and we've never seen so much as a single gun that was destroyed.
