Dick’s Sporting Goods Still Suffering After Taking Stand for Gun Control

Published

on

Earlier this year, Dick’s Sporting Goods made headlines–and lost customers–for taking a bold, while most likely unnecessary, stand against “assault rifles”.

As a sporting goods retailer, they do carry rifles for hunting and sport shooting, but they proudly announced shortly after the Parkland shooting that they’d no longer be carrying the AR-15, the most popular rifle in the US and the weapon used at the massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass High School on February 14th, 2018.

They also opted to raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21. The Parkland shooter was 19 at the time of the shooting. Dick’s made the announcement after it was determined that the shooter had purchased a weapon at one of their locations.

Then, they made headlines once again when they announced they’d actually be destroying the stock of AR-15s that they now refused to sell.

Sales began to decline, as you may have expected, and have continued to do so, as the Daily Wire reports.

They explain that while Dick’s credits their floundering sales in part to Under Armour’s decision to leave sports retailers and focus more on department stores, it is impossible to deny their vocal anti-gun policy has also had an impact.

The other half … well … Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack tried to couch it as best he could, but it’s clear that destroying the company’s stock of AR-15s and other assorted “assault rifles” had an impact on Dick’s bottom line.

“As expected, sales were impacted by the strategic decisions we made regarding the slow growth, low margin hunt and electronics businesses, which accounted for nearly half of our comp decline,” Stack said in a statement. “In addition, we experienced continued significant declines in Under Armour sales as a result of their decision to expand distribution.”

Dick’s banned sales of so-called “assault rifles” at its stores and at its sister retailer, Field & Stream. It also banned the sale of “high capacity” magazines and barred the sale of any gun to any customer under 21 years of age. At the time, the company admitted they believed the move could hurt sales, but said that they hoped the change would attract a new breed of Dick’s customer.

The anti-gun crowd must not buy a lot of sporting goods.

Hey, let’s hand it to them: perhaps they really genuinely do believe in the anti-gun cause to take this big of a financial hit.

If they truly wanted to make a difference, however, perhaps they could have put their energy into supporting policies that actually keep people safer, not just slightly inconvenience hunters aged 20 and under…

REPORT: Smollett Tells ‘Empire’ Castmates ‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’

WOW! Really, dude?

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was arrest by the Chicago PD and charged with a felony for a reason.

Authorities have good reason to believe he staged a hate crime against himself. It’s that simple.

The brothers who “attacked” Jussie even said they were paid by the openly gay actor to go after him.

Now, it is being reported that Smollett told his castmates that he didn’t do it.

From Daily Wire:

Actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning after he was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report. Later in the day, Smollett was released from prison on $100,000 bond and headed to the set of his Fox show, “Empire,” where he reportedly begged his castmates for forgiveness while simultaneously maintaining his innocence.

“Sources on the ‘Empire’ set tell us the cast and crew were waiting at least 30 minutes for Jussie to begin the scheduled scene. When he eventually showed his face he was very emotional, and surrounded by his family,” says a report from TMZ.

Smollett apparently told the cast: “I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”

Check out this clip of a gay black veteran ripping Smollett to pieces, because you’re certainly not going to see it on MSNBC anytime soon.

Powerful!

Kudos to this American hero for speaking up and calling out Jussie for attempting to incite a race war.

Smollett has also officially been charged with a felony:

Smollett has a history of lying to law enforcement.

Back in 2007, he “provided false information” after receiving a DUI.

From Daily Wire:

Jussie Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license, and providing false information to law enforcement officials in 2007, according to new reports released on Tuesday.

“Tuesday the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed that in August of 2007 Smollett pleaded no contest to DUI, driving without a license and providing false information to law enforcement,” CBS Chicago reported. “He was sentenced to two years probation and a choice of a fine or jail. Officials at the office could not confirm which Smollett chose. A spokesman for the Chicago Police Department said the department was already aware of the plea.”

Senators Kamala Harris (CA) and Cory Booker (NJ) are both running for president. The chances that either person secures the Democrat nomination are slim, at best.

After hearing that Smollett was the “victim” of a “hate crime,” both Booker and Harris rushed to slam the “attack” as a “modern day lynching.”

Of course, the country now knows that Smollett faked the attack and paid two brothers to orchestrate the whole thing.

Now, Harris is at a loss for words when confronted by a reporter asking about Smollett…

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders Once Wrote Sex Fantasy About Woman Being Raped

Hey, MSM – Over here!

John Salvatore

Published

on

Vermont Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders has a wild past that includes praising communist nations and disparaging the United States.

Also, he once penned an op-ed in the 70s about how women fantasize about being raped.

If Bernie was a Republican and the mainstream media got word of this, he’d be toast.

Fortunately for Bernie, he gets a pass.

From Federalist Papers:

On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere took some time to revisit an essay Sanders wrote in 1972, originally for the Vermont Freeman. It’s…something else:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their ‘revolutionary’ political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

WATCH:

Back in November 2018, dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sanders as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

While offering zero evidence, Bernie labeled President Trump using four despicable words.

Any guesses?

….take a second to think about it…

………………………………..

Here they are: racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted.

Not exactly original, Bernie.

Sanders noted:

I just returned on Saturday from a nine-state tour working with great candidates all across this country. And I can tell you there are candidates and supporters working hour after hour to make sure we end one-party control of the United States government. They are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.

He continued:

While taking back the House and the Senate is obviously of enormous importance, it is not enough. What we need right now, in governors’ chairs all across this country, are governors who are gonna stand with the working people; they’re gonna stand with the elderly; they’re gonna stand with the children; they’re gonna stand with the poor, and they’re gonna fight for an agenda and an economy for all of us, not just the one percent.
