Dick’s Sporting Goods bowed to the gun control left after the Parkland shooting. Their sales dropped significantly but now they’re pushing even further. They have actually hired lobbyists to push for gun control.

Dick’s Sporting Goods hires lobbyists on gun control
Dick’s Sporting Goods has reportedly retained several lobbyists to urge lawmakers to take action on gun control, months after restricting gun sales in its stores.
The sporting-goods chain is working with three lobbyists from the Glover Park Group to take on the topic, Bloomberg reported Thursday, citing a disclosure form filed late last month.
The move comes after Dick’s announced in the wake of the mass shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school in February that it would stop selling assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines.
The chain also said it would no longer sell guns to anyone under the age of 21 and later announced it would destroy some of the guns or accessories left in stock.
A spokesman for Dick’s declined to comment to Bloomberg for its report, and Glover Park didn’t respond to the outlet’s requests for comment.
Is this another company that will have to go out of business before seeing the error of their ways?
They should ask ESPN how embracing far left politics is working out for them.
