Mossberg Joins Push to Cut Off Dick’s Gun Supply
Russ Chastain 05.10.18
In a recent post to their Facebook page, gunmaker O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. stated they will not accept any future orders from Dick’s Sporting Goods, due to that company hiring anti-gun lobbyists to campaign against our civil rights. They also choose not to deal with Field & Stream, a subsidiary of Dick’s. In this, they join Springfield Armory, who made a similar announcement recently.
Here’s the text of the post:
It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control. Make no mistake, Mossberg is a staunch supporter of the U.S. Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, and we fully disagree with Dick’s Sporting Goods’ recent anti-Second Amendment actions.
Effective immediately, Mossberg will not accept any future orders from Dick’s Sporting Goods or Field & Stream, and is in the process of evaluating current contractual agreements.

Want to buy some Mossbergs? That company offers a dealer locator:
Consumers are urged to visit one of the thousands of pro-Second Amendment firearm retailers to make their purchases of Mossberg and Maverick® firearms. Firearm retailers can be found through the Mossberg Dealer Locator by visiting http://www.mossberg.com/dealers/.
There are no words to adequately describe the utter moronitude of Dick’s decision to hire anti-gun lobbyists, and I’m glad to see they are experiencing severe backlash from it.
I for one respect Mossberg, and not just for this reason. They remain one of the only long-standing American gunmaking companies that hasn’t been bought up by a huge conglomerate.
Founded in 1919, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. is the oldest family-owned firearms manufacturer in America, and is the largest pump-action shotgun manufacturer in the world. Leading the way with over 100 design and utility patents to its credit, and standing as the first ISO 9001 Certified long-gun manufacturer, Mossberg is considered to be one of the most innovative firearms manufacturers in U.S. History.

It’s only a matter of time until all reasonable gunmakers and ammo companies stop selling to companies like Dick’s — and good riddance, if you ask me.
