    Just saw they no longer sale "assault style-rifles", whatever the hell those are, and no longer sale any gun to persons under 21..... CEO said they are prepared for backlash but will not change policy on guns, for the the money I normally spend with them I'm willing to help find out if he's right...

    Sort of. Turns out, it was just another disingenuous attempt to calm the masses.

    "Assault weapon sales ended at Dick's-branded stores after the Newtown, Conn. school shooting in 2012, but the company was still selling them at its Field & Stream locations, which specialize in hunting and outdoors products."

    Probably a CYA thing against lawsuits in today's environment.

    Dicks stopped selling "them" years ago. Not that it mattered since they are a sorry excuse for hunting and fishing store, anyway. Last time it pissed me off that they made a big announcement to that effect. This time making a big announcement just proves that they are simply trying to ingratiate themselves in the spandex crowd that is their main customer base.

    Last time: "We're no longer selling assault rifles."
    This time: "Now we're really not selling assault rifles."

    :l

    They own Golf Galaxy too.... So I suspect that they will be putting out a Press Release anouncing that they no longer sell "assault style-rifles" at their Golf Galaxy locations....
