That's OK I suspended all shopping in Dicks from now on. I occasionally darkened their door, but now no more.

I live in the People’s republic of MA. I could pretty much duplicate what that clown had for a weapon. AR15, pre ban mags. My pistols do not have large cap mags...

All of this will result in no, zip, nada, nicht, change in the problem of crazy people getting guns and shooting things.

I used to shop at Dick’s for athletic shoes and other workout clothes, and once actually bought some .22 rounds there, but never again. I just sent them an email telling them that I will no longer do business with them and that I was cutting up my Dick’s ScoreCard Rewards card. So long, capitulators to tyranny.

That school will be demolished next week. Flattened. No one is allowed on the property, or near it enough to photograph.

Sorry, charlie. These people don’t make mistakes.

Good for Dick’s. That just means more “modern rifles” will make it to legitimate gun dealers. Dick’s has always been nothing more than a seller of clothes with a few hockey skates, fishing rods and firearms thrown in for decoration.

I’ll make sure the local store knows why they won’t be seeing me again.

I’m planning to purchase a new handgun on Thursday (my day off). From what I’ve heard, though, ALL the gun stores in suburban Pittsburgh where I live have had their inventories wiped clean after both Black Friday & this past weekend. That’s good news, although it may limit my selection!

I shopped once at Dick’s in the Arlington Parks Mall. Their customer service was terrible. I’m suspending shopping there permanently. Cabela’s is much better.

I've shopped very little at Dicks ever since they stopped selling handguns.

They are a bunch of leftist tools.

Wandered through checking ammo prices the other day. Have to admit this suspension won’t harm the local Dick’s store. All they had were shotguns. And terrible ammo prices.

Can’t beat the local Farm & Home store for ammo. Prefer Gander Mountain, Scheels, and local gun stores personally.

Are you insinuating that Dick's is little more than a mass-merchandiser of NBA/NFL/NCAA licensed apparel and celebrity-endorsed footwear that is manufactured in the Pacific Rim but priced like it was still made in the U.S.? Am I detecting an inference that the pathetic selection of actual sporting goods (fireams inclusive) at Dick's is practically an afterthought almost unenthusiastically offered to "bitter clingers" that they don't really care for but whose money they will take (despite said clingers being sort of icky)? Are you telling me that Dick's is displaying token amounts of hockey sticks, fishing rods and firearms just to give the false impression that they are something more than an Old Navy for wannabee jocks?

I'm shocked. SHOCKED!

I made the mistake of trying to buy a shotgun on sale at Dick’s. I had to go to the store repeatedly because they were so disorganized, demanded more than the required information, and ended up calling me to come back to the store repeatedly because they kept fouling up their paperwork.

I was so frustrated (how about this for frustrated) that I felt like calling the BATF&E and asking them to take away this Dick’s FFL, because people *that* dumb had no business handling guns, much less selling them.

I am glad I gave them a throwaway email address, because they have continued to spam it silly ever since.

Obviously the "authorities" have had the area locked-down since the incident, however(for what it's worth)one of the networks was showing what appeared to be a zoom-shot(from a helicopter)showing the broken window/door at/near the main entrance of the school where(they claim)the shooter entered.

Also on audio tape(from first-responders)you can hear the reporting of broken glass(assuming it's from the same area near the front entrance of the school)as they arrived.

So much misinformation though from the presstitutes on this whole thing...who knows.
