The Anti-Gun movement has made some retailers feel the need to back gun control in order to be trendy. The retailers are not realizing that the people that are pushing gun control are not usually the Gun Owners. So Dick’s Sporting Goods should have realized they were hurting their own gun sales and there would be repercussions. They may have thought some people would be put off by their move, but now a gun maker has stepped up and said enough is enough.
Gun Retailer Springfield Armory has severed ties with Dicks Sporting Goods after they found that they were working against Americans and the second amendment. They posted the following on Facebook.
“Springfield Armory announces its decision in response to Dick’s Sporting Goods’ attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms
GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – 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.
This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law-abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.
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 rights 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.”

It is good this information is coming to light. Dick’s and companies that have caved to Liberal pressure over gun control, need to know that it is not ok to infringe upon American Rights.
“Springfield Armory was founded by order of George Washington in 1777 to store artillery and ammo to help Americans fight for independence in the Revolutionary War. Springfield Armory manufactured its first guns in 1794, and its name was eventually licensed for private use in 1974 after the U.S. government officially closed the armory six years earlier.”
