Ever consider that many (Most) of the laws concerning the 2A are unconstitutional?

Yes. I think many of vast array of Export Control laws we have put into place are ill-considered, and impinge on Constitutional liberties (1st as well as 2nd ammendments). But I don't blame Dick's Sporting Good for trying to stay out of jail and in business.

“I called the store manager when I got home and she told me it is a new policy and she believes it is the law. Utter BS as there is no such law.”

I humbly apologize to you.

It does sound she was lying. You should have whacked her with the citizenship bit.

Again, I apologize to you.

In that case, I wouldn’t purchase there again either because of the lie.

In my book, the Constitution is not for non-citizens....we differ. (In the vernacular of the common liberal, I’ve interpreted this meaning as a ‘living document” transtional definition specifically relating to our current time where foreigners are a threat to us).....

She asks question A. If the answer is "Yes, I am a citizen," the computer stops there. If the question is "No, I am not a citizen," the computer asks for production of a visa or green card.

This is what I'm thinking as well. Following the law. No problem there. Legal foreigners / tourists can purchase ammo.

Kayak in that context is interchangable for bike

Oh! You mean the 'men' that wear them spandex knee length tights, spandex T's and them Alien helmets?.....Usually I see these guys sucking on a water bottle they grabbed out from between their legs on the bicycle (they absolutely hate it when you call their whateveritis thingy a 'bicycle'....) The only question I have is where do they put their balls when they jamb that tiny little seat up their keester while riding?

I walk the walk. I have the license and I fight it every way that I can. Tell you what, sport: You go make yourself a test case against Bloomberg’s ban on guns in New York and then get back to me. How much did you do for our 2nd Amendment this year. Did you get involved, not just donate, to one of the many orgs fighting for our rights? I did. And will again next year. If I step out of line I go directly to a Federal Prison. You willing to do that? Thought not. You’re just another internet superhero. Ridding the universe of all the bad guys, one whining post at a time.

By the way, my shop is Fair Play Trading Post and Gunsmithing. You can easily validate that I am indeed a holder of a valid FFL.

If the govt was interested in the illegal invasion, they would close the borders. They don’t.

If they were interested in illegals, they would not give them free school care on the US taxpayers dime.

If they were interested in stopping illegal immigration, they would not give illegals free healthcare. But they don’t.

Instead, they start with the 2A as they know you will cave. And by reading the posts here, they are correct.

It is never about the guns (or ammo)......it is always about control.

Having your FFL makes you a patriot about as much as owning a flag makes you a patriot.

After having read all the comments it sounds like someone straining to find offense. So ho-hum, don't shop there, end of story. Move on with the rest of your life, etc., etc.

The FFL does not prove anything except that I have skin in the game and a clue about the laws. You have thus far ignored the proof of law that I have provided and thrown red-herrings out to distract.
If you knew me, or my background you would not mention patriotism as an angle of attack. I have done my share.

FWIW, I make it a habit to avoid giving one dime of my business to anyplace that precludes the right to self defense. This of course means no NYC and no Jersey shore. I wish more gun owners would stick to their guns so to speak......then these places would feel it in their pocketbook.

I guess the real question is why are you buying ammo at Dick’s? Much better prices elsewhere.

Ot is closer than Cabelas......but now I will simply do all of my shopping at Cabelas. They truly understand the 2A.

Maybe they don’t want to sell to illegal aliens. OK by me although we kicked Dick’s to the curb several years ago when they stiffed us on a shotgun shell special. We are all Pro Bass all the time.

So, if you’re looking for “gay” stuff, you should buy one of them kayaks....the kind you can ‘bind’ to the top of your VW or Mini-Cooper and drive up to the mountains to get into some white water and get all wet with your ‘roommate’....

Kayaking is gay??? Wow. Never done it before but it looks like fun..

BTW I know a guy who kayaks and he has had more women in his bed in 5 years than all 3 of us together will have in our lives combined...

What it the point? The illegal can simply press Yes. So what? Unless they check your ID, and record it on the receipt, it means nothing.

I think I have the answer. It’s a marketing ploy. When word gets out that Dick’s checks ID’s to weed out illegal aliens, it may draw more business as “Dick’s is pro-American!”, when actually it is not, since I believe Dick’s is a pro-Rat business.

What part of :

18 USC 922 (d) It shall be unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise
dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or
having reasonable cause to believe
that such person -

(5) who, being an alien -
(A) is illegally or unlawfully in the United States;

Do you not understand?

What part of "knowing or having reasonable cause to believe" don't you FReepers understand?

ACCORDING TO THE LAW, Dicks has ZERO jusitifability to apply this question indescriminately to AMMO sales, and whenever it does apply it, it must be able to show a REASON.

Don't you see what Dick's is implementing? It is the idea that if you don't provide some sort of positive evidence, you can be presumed - simply for existing - to be an alien or illegally or unlawfully in the United States.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

It is LITERALLY "papers please."

WAKE UP!
