Their firearm stance hurt the bottom line.
But in reality the big box sporting goods stores have been declining for years. They over expanded and are now contracting.
Internet sales, Amazon etc.
The Cabelas/Bass Pro consolidation was an earlier sign.
The death of Galyans stores and downsizing of Big 5., etc.

If you notice an extra amount of water in the NoVA area, that's just me, crying Dick's a river. ;)

This is sweet justice. I was so pissed on their "hop on the bandwagon" approch to the anti-gun national news after each new incident. First they cancelled some Daniel Defense orders that customers had already pre-paid for, and pledged to be on the "good side" of "common sense" gun legislation. Then they took a double dip on the next big incident and tried to get all the exposure they could on that. Those showboating tragety pimps are getting their just reward. Plus their shit is overpriced as well.

There is a lot of truth in the above post.
If you want to run a business and also be a social justice warrior, in a free market and especially with something as emotionally charged as the second amendment, something is going to give.
Socialists essentially want to take your guns to control you. Their policies ruin economies, destroy the middle class and make the ruling class wealthy. So who in their right mind would watch their kids starve while the wealthy live in luxury? No one with the capacity to defend themselves or throw off the chains socialism has put on them would allow that to happen.
Dicks decided to virtue signal by going after AR's, now they're about to go out of business and they don't see the correlation between running a sporting goods store and pissing off gun owners?
