Dick’s Sporting Goods used to be a lot of people’s go-to gun store. The chain tended to have good prices and even better sales, so a lot of folks took advantage. What most of them didn’t know for much of that time is just how little the company’s CEO shared their values regarding the Second Amendment. Edward Stack had no problem profiting from the Second Amendment, not for years, but he never believed in it.
That became clear when he decided to no longer profit from the sale of certain firearms, which led to a general boycott of his stores by gun-rights supporters.
It was not a great business decision, to be sure, though not as bad as many hoped.
