Dick's Sporting Goods to destroy all unsold firearms pulled from shelves after Parkland shooting

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced it would destroy the firearms the company took off its shelves in February.

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced it would destroy all of the unsold firearms it pulled off store shelves in February after the Parkland school shooting.

The sports retailer decided to destroy the rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported.

“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokesperson from Dick’s Sporting Goods told the media outlet. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”

  1. I do believe that will make ours more valuable ...Supply and demand.

  2. Dick's owns the firearms and can do whatever they choose with them. Anyone who disagrees should shop somewhere else.

  3. I do shop somewhere else. Dick's has not been competitive with service or pricing for a very long time.

    Destroying your inventory cuts your profits even more. Doing this after a drop-off of sales since the announcement of not selling AR's is another stupid move. Profit margins are kind of important. If I owned their stock I would be in contact with the board of directors because of the drop. Last year the stock was worth about $51 a share. Today it is $32.

    1. $51 a share. Today it is $32.

      Thank you and that made my day! :)

  4. For most large retailers money "trumps" (lower case "t") the constitution every time. And to think the only thing that allows these Capitalist parasites to exist and flourish is the constitution........SAD!

  5. Boycott....it is what we deplorables do best. Get them where it hurts.

  6. Call me cynical, but I wonder how many of those "destroyed" firearms will be diverted/lost/misplaced or otherwise unaccounted for and find their way to others within Dick's organization. Great way to obtain a free off the books with no paper trail firearm. Would I believe they would do such a thing? In a nanosecond. Remember gun control is all able controlling/disarming the other guy.
