Breitbart reports that “get woke, go broke” is true. Dick’s Sporting Goods went full SJW retard on gun sales after Broward County’s Parkland school shooting. Progress has been swift and sure ever since! For recaps:

Corporate Gun Control Fail: Dick’s Sporting Goods Sales Slip Again
By Awr Hawkins, who obviously enjoyed writing this article, 29 November 2018
On February 28, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s was ending sales of commonly owned semiautomatic rifles and “high capacity” magazines. They also raised the purchase age for long guns to 21 years.
On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s was destroying unsold commonly owned semiautomatic rifles rather than sending them back to their respective manufacturers. Dick’s also made clear it would destroy its unsold “high capacity” magazines.
Now another sales quarter has passed, and Dick’s continues to be hurt by its gun control stance. The Washington Examiner reported, “Sales at Dick’s Sporting Goods dropped in the past three months amid backlash against tighter gun-sale restrictions following a mass killing early this year at a Florida high school.”
The Examiner added, “Revenue dipped 4.5 percent to $1.86 billion amid challenges in the company’s hunting business during the quarter through Nov. 3. Sales at stores open at least 12 months – a key metric for the retail industry – fell 6.1 percent compared to the prior year.”
Losing 4.5% of revenue in the current growing economy is disastrous.
The company plans to raise prices in 2019. It says the higher prices are due to expenses incurred via President Trump’s tariffs on products made in China.
YES! Keep the streak alive, Dick! Suck it harder!
