Two employees of Dicks Sporting Goods store resigned after the company caved to anti-Second Amendment rhetoric by raising the minimum age requirement to buy a long gun to 21 from 18.
Alexander DeGarmo, 20, quit after he realized that under the new policy announced by CEO Edward Stack, he would not be able to purchase an item he sold as a sales associate.
Until Edward Stack came out with these absolutely arbitrary and insane rules I had no issue [working there], DeGarmo told Fox News. Another employee, 20-year-old hunter Griffin McCullar, resigned from Dicks Sporting Goods citing similar reasons.
Dicks Sporting Goods has been under fire from liberals demanding stricter gun control in the wake of the Valentines Day school at a Parkland, Florida, high school by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz.

It’s time to “Christian Bake” these businesses and sue them to adhere to the LAW rather than their stupid beliefs.
The “opioid crisis” is amazing in the numbers of deaths. But I bet we are losing more libs than conservatives. So sad.(inset phony sniff, sniff sound here)
God for them! Of course they won’t be needed anyway with the coming drop in floor traffic at Dick’s stores.
These leftist companies want to sick their political necks out? They get what they deserve.
See Dick go bankrupt!
Looks like Obama’s fault!
Got an order in to short Dick’s....in the am.
Yet again we see a reluctance to recognize EVIL when it appears. Whether due to mental illness or simply a malevolent personality, the shooter was not in need of a class in "responsible gun ownership". Can you imagine a class which teaches someone not to kill 17 unarmed people? I can't.
So has Dicks raised the age of all of its sales people to 21 also? You can’t have a 19 year old selling guns or allowing customers to purchase them.
Adhere to the law?? There is no law that says they MUST sell to anyone. They have the absolute right to refuse to sell to anyone....for any reason or for no reason at all. Gut is sufficient.
I noticed that too.
No one, under the age of 21, should be allowed to use kitchen knives.
I am pretty sure they can find a job at a private gun store in the area-—because those stores will have a large increase in their sales.
Cabala's caters to men and these kinds of women:
“They have the absolute right to refuse to sell to anyone....for any reason or for no reason at all.”
You sure about that? Could they not sell guns to African-Americans if they choose to?
“I bet if we made heroin illegal that number would go right down to zero. “
We should make stricter murder laws.
