One of the largest firearms sellers in the U.S. is moving further away from...firearms.

Some background: Just over a year ago, Dick’s CEO Edward Stack learned the Parkland gunman once bought a gun from Dick’s. While that wasn’t the gun he used to kill 17 people last year, Stack was shaken.

  • That’s why he’s made it harder to buy guns at Dick’s—and why he’s pressured Congress to pass gun safety measures.

Dick’s tested the fewer-guns approach in 10 stores last year. And if the expansion announced yesterday is successful, Dick’s will move to implement the same changes at more locations next year.

While Stack’s approach has invited both support and criticism...it could potentially hurt Dick’s business. Adjusted same-store sales fell 3.1% annually last year.

But there are larger forces at work: Gun demand (especially in brick-and-mortar stores) has been under pressure—U.S. firearm sales fell 12.4% year-over-year last month, estimates Small Arms Analytics & Forecasting.

Probably just a temporary sales glitch.  When Obama was elected it caused the immediate acquisition of about  Three Million new guns into the hands of people, many who already had several, or many.  I appreciate Obama SO MUCH!

... best gun salesman of the 21st century!
