Well, it seems Dicks Sporting Goods could not have a more fitting name

What a bunch of…………..

Dick’s Sporting Goods, which announced in February it would no longer sell rifles to anyone under the age of 21, hired three Beltway lobbyists to lobby Congress for gun control, according to federal records reviewed by The Federalist.

The lobbying records show Dick’s hired two Democrats and one Republican from Glover Park Group, a DC-based government affairs firm, for “[l]obbying related to gun control.” No other policy issues were listed in the disclosure form filed by the firm. The disclosure forms show Dick’s pro-gun control lobbying effort began official on April 27, 2018. The official registration form noting Dick’s retention of Glover to push for gun control was filed on Monday morning.

Here’s to you Dicks!

Noted buffoon: America, turn in your guns!

Good grief! The Left has truly gone bat shit crazy. They actually think that law-abiding citizens disarming will stop schools shootings They really are addicted to collective guilt aren’t they?

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee wants Americans to turn in their guns.

The Hill reported:

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) on Wednesday afternoon urged people to turn in their guns, arguing it would be an appropriate response to last week’s mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.

“I would personally just say to those who are listening, maybe you want to turn in your guns,” Jackson Lee said on the House floor. “Oh no, I’m not going to take your guns. But look at what Dick’s Sporting Goods did … they wanted to be part of the solution and part of America.”

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced this week that it would stop selling and displaying guns at its store closest to Newtown, and would suspend the sale of modern sporting rifles nation-wide out of respect for the victims of the shooting.

So, a sporting goods chain is now “part of America” because they have suspended the sale of modern hunting rifles? They are now part of the solution? Solution to what exactly? All they did was cave in to the hyper-sensitive nonsense the Left deals in.

Of course Dicks Sporting Goods, which may have just lost my business can do what it wants. But this move by them is transparently superficial. This is the type of emotionalistic “solutions” Liberal minds come up with. They like to “make a difference”, they feel that by doing something, they are really making things better. Whether or not these “somethings” work, or are effective matters not. For Liberals, it is enough to feel like they are doing right thing.
