    Again, unless they can prove with facts it was bribery, their feelings don't matter.

    This has nothing to do with Dick’s politics.
    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight; because it's just coincidence that their sales began to decline, soon after their decision on firearms was announced.


    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

American companies succeeding means jobs and revenue for our government.
    I'd say it's pretty safe to say that with few exceptions that most of Dick's customers go there for primarily for athletic clothing. Dick's has for some time been shifting their sales of outdoors man gear and equipment to their Field and Stream stores. You can't even buy fishing gear at my local Dick's anymore. I have to drive to the far north side of town to go to their Field and Stream store and to be honest...the fishing gear at Cabela's or Bass Pro is better. I have a sneaky hunch that if I were to desire to purchase a fire arm I could probably get a better quality equipment at my local gun shop. When I go to a sporting goods store I'm usually looking for sport specific gear and clothing and Dick's never has had much in the sports I've been interested in and what they do have is usually entry level gear at low prices.

    I can only think of one business I have boycotted for political reasons and that's Jimmy John's and it's not really political so much as I think they are total assholes for making minimum wage workers sign non-compete agreements and then enforcing them. That and their sandwiches aren't "that" good.

    Same. I buy firearms from my local pawn and gun. I have never bought a gun from a chain like Bass Pro or Academy or Dick’s. When I go to those stores I’m looking to buy certain, common ammo and/or hunting clothing and/or fishing equipment.

    Yea, I refuse to pay that much for an average to below average sandwich.
