Springfield Armory Completely Cuts Off Dick’s
Adam Scepaniak 05.04.18
You read that correctly. After Dick’s Sporting Goods has taken position after position against the 2nd Amendment and the very industry they try to profit from, Springfield Armory has had enough.
Can we get a standing ovation for Springfield Armory please!
First, Dick’s Sporting Goods tried to regulate firearms sales in all of their stores over-the-top of Federal laws that are in place by requiring all firearm sales that occur be for only individuals over the age of 21.
Second, they tried to virtue-signal by stating they would remove all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their stores and destroy them. Not sell back to manufacturers or receive a credit, but completely destroy.
Finally, it has risen to the surface that Dick’s Sporting Goods literally employs and pays anti-gun lobbyists.
Enough is enough. Springfield Armory made this statement on their Facebook page yesterday and hours later sent it out to all of their valued customers.
GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.
This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.
It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.
Often times, people dig their own graves. If Dick’s Sporting Goods starts to see quarterly losses and eventual financial ruin, they will have no one to blame, but themselves.
