Springfield Armory announced Thursday that they will no longer be doing business with the embattled Dick’s Sporting Goods. Henceforth they will be Dickless. They’re cutting off Dick’s. No more Dick’s.
“Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying,” said the Illinois-based company in a press release.
Springfield went on to point out that this isn’t the only transgression the retailer has made in recent weeks. Dick’s banned the sale of firearms to adults under the age of 21 and not only stopped selling modern sporting rifles in their Field & Stream stores but opted to destroy their existing inventory. Quite a Dick move.
“It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans,” said Springfield.
News of this comes on the heels of Hornady’s decision to stop selling ammo to New York law enforcement agencies after state overlords (the Cuomo administration) put pressure on banks, financial institutions, and insurances companies to cut ties with gun businesses.
Let’s hope this trend continues. Anti-gunners in government need to recognize that if they continue to put the squeeze on gun folk, there will be consequences.
