Mossberg announced Wednesday that it will be terminating its relationship with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary Field & Stream.
“It has come to our attention that Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired lobbyists on Capitol Hill to promote additional gun control.” said Iver Mossberg, Chief Executive Officer of O.F. Mossberg & Sons, in a press release.
“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,” continued Iver.
The Connecticut-based manufacturer said that it will stop accepting orders “effectively immediately” and that it is in the process of “evaluating current contractual agreements.”
Springfield Armory was the first gun company to officially sever ties with Dick’s. They made the announcement last week, citing similar reasons. Here’s to more manufacturers following in their footsteps! Let’s put Dick’s outta business!
Mossberg is urging its customer base to purchase products from pro-2A firearm retailers. We can think of no better place to look than right here on GunsAmerica.
