The liberal left, for all of their posturing and pontificating, will never be able to accomplish their pipe dream of fully repealing the 2nd Amendment. So, instead, they have chosen the most annoying tactic possible: Make exercising your right to bear arms a real hassle.
This has been the modus operandi of the Democratic Party for some time, with decades of red-tape legislation to show for it. Year in and year out they push for enhanced background checks, red flag laws, the ban of private sales…you name it, they’ve tried it.
And, worse yet, when they fail to legislate their way into the territory of the inalienable, they begin exerting pressure on private citizens and companies to essentially throttle the Constitution in public.
This is how they shamed Dick’s Sporting Goods into not only neutering their firearms departments, but also destroying $5 million worth of rifles.
Dick’s Sporting Goods destroyed $5 million dollars of semi-automatic sporting rifles rather than selling them as CEO Ed Stack tightened firearms policies amid a string of deadly school shootings.
Later, when the company discovered it had sold a shotgun to Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old accused of shooting 17 people to death at a south Florida high school in early 2018, Stack stopped selling firearms to anyone under age 21.
“We found out that we sold this kid a shotgun,” Stack said in an interview on CBS Sunday Morning. “That’s when I said, ‘We’re done.'”
“Even though that wasn’t the gun he used?” asked CBS correspondent Lee Cowan.
“Even though it wasn’t the gun he used,” Stack said. “It could have been.”
The new, more liberal stance has not been financially beneficial to Dick’s in the least bit. The company estimates that it has lost $250 million over their decisions.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
