Just repeating this lie over and over doesn't make it true. "While sales have fallen at Dick’s after its decision to take a tougher stance on guns, profits have risen as it cut costs and replaced guns with higher-margin items:" wsj.com/articles/how-d…
"In recent months, Dick’s took guns out of 10 stores completely, a test the company is likely to expand. Using the space for higher-margin and faster-selling items has boosted sales in those stores. 'Since we made the decision, we’ve raised our guidance three times.'"
Why would Dick's close their 35 Field & Stream stores? Because they're replacing hunting gear - which is performing poorly - with baseball-related items. Field & Stream stores specialize in hunting and fishing gear. koaa.com/news/covering-…
