The folks over at Dick’s Sporting Goods aren’t having the most stellar year in 2018, but their problems seem to be completely self inflicted.

The sporting superstore made headlines earlier this year in reacting to the mental illness attack of Parkland, Florida on February 14th as if it were a gun rights issue.  Dick’s, following the lead of a great many corporations in bowing to the radical left’s social justice demands, promptly began to adjust their in-store firearms policies to reflect what they perceived would be the new norm for society.

What Dick’s seemed to forget is that the nation is currently undergoing a massive conservative awakening and, despite the occasional atrocity, the American people are more convinced than ever that the Second Amendment is an inalienable and necessary right.

Now the sporting store is feeling the pressure from some of their own business partners in addition to the growing consumer boycott.

Recent moves from Dick’s, though, has the gun community doubting where the company’s, and Stack’s, loyalties truly lie. Last week, federal documents came to light revealing that Dick’s had hired three Beltway lobbyists to lobby for gun control in Congress, a move that officially began at the end of April. Dick’s also shared last month that it would destroy the weapons it will no longer sell — a strong statement about its attitude toward this inventory.

As a response, vendors are gradually backing away from the Pennsylvania-based retailer. Yesterday, the parent company of Mossberg guns, O.F. Mossberg & Sons Inc., announced in a press release that it would no longer do business with Dick’s. It was not diplomatic about the reason for this decision either.

“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control,” CEO Iver Mossberg wrote. “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.”

In its release, Mossberg urges shoppers to “visit one of the thousands of pro-Second Amendment firearm retailers to make their purchases” — a real jab at Dick’s position on gun control.

The decision makers over at Dick’s are now getting a taste of their own medicine, but will that bring them back to the world of traditional American values?

It may be too late for the embattled retailer, whose sin of lobbying agains the Second Amendment has been widely exposed as an attempt to work against their gun-selling competition.  Such a desperate move does not bode well for the organization as a whole.
