    I wonder if they are going to have a deep discount sale to at least sell whatever inventory they have. Heck, I might go in to my local store and make some ridiculous offer just to see if they'd take it. Probable better than just destroying them. But they are clearly going though the liberal 'virtue signaling' display to demonstrate how concerned they are. Let the healing begin!

    For every one they destroy that is one more a company can sell to a real customer and less money for Dicks and their shareholders. They still had to pay for them

    Mere words are not adequate enough to express my outrage.
    Definition of clip

    1: any of various devices that grip, clasp, or hook
    2: a device to hold cartridges for charging the magazines of some rifles; also : a magazine from which ammunition is fed into the chamber of a firearm.

    I can't believe shareholders are ok with destroying inventory in the range of tens of millions of dollars to "feel good". I'd want the BODs heads on platters for wasting MY investment cash. Hell, I'd probably sue the snot out of them.

    It has taken more than a few years for pro-second amendment people to forgive a few sports places for refusing to sell or pulling AR's off the rack after Sandy Hook.

    We don't have a Dick's around Lubbock. so Ill never know what I am missing!

    I read that today. Our Dicks had a bunch of their staff quit that were between 18 and 21. They had problems opening their stores for a few weeks.

    And they are destroying all their stock that are in there stores!

    Pretty stupid if you ask me. Academy is just down the road and have doubled their inventory!
    Their selling AR'S. And 30 round mags like crazy.

    When did they start selling assault rifles? Oh wait, they mean scary black rifles. Well I guess they can seem them, use them, destroy them, whatever. It's their right. Stupid financial move though.

    Academy did pull their AR's off the racks a few years back, they were still availble and carried at the stores, but were not on display. For the most part, that has been forgiven.
