Dick’s Sporting Goods Now Discriminating Against Law-Abiding Gun Owners

 photo1 (4)

 No to Dick's.

It wasn’t that long ago when Dick’s Sporting Goods pulled all black semi-automatic rifles from their shelves. They felt that in light of the Sandy Hook tragedy, these guns possibly should not be sold.

This of course caused massive complaints against Dick’s, by law-abiding gun owners protesting their lunacy.

Dick’s has now returned for round two! A member of Gun Rights Across America we’ll call “John” went shopping for .308 cartridges at the Dick’s in Niles, IL. When he went to checkout, he was bombarded with a list of questions after presenting his current Illinois FOID Card (Firearms Owners Identification Card – Required to purchase guns and/or ammunition under IL State Law). These questions are not required to purchase ammunition, only a current FOID Card is necessary, so John declined to answer and asked for a manager.

  1. These big box retailers are the same all around. I avoid them like the plague unless I have no damned choice. I have not been in a Dick's or Gander Mountain since 2008. I can find better choices online and all of those choices are actual mom-and-pop stores. Even with S&H, the prices actually beat or at least match the prices of the box retailers.

    1. I bought a knife for Dixie last year there, but I won't grace their halls again.

  4. Since they pulled their shit (pardon my French) after Sandy Hook, I refuse to step foot back in the place.

  6. The Louisville Ky. store tried to make me show photo ID, give my SSN , and sign for FREEZE DRYS!! and a fuel bottle. I refused and was told that I had to "give them my ID to be placed on the DHS watch list for non cooperation" I said "OK let me call my lawyer" , and the manager was at my side in an instant saying "Your free to go!" I told him " I all ways was". I'll never spend another penny with the scum that run Dicks.---Ray
