Anyone wanna talk about Mr. Haab and his pants being engulfed in fire

Is it any surprise that after all the dancing about with the “crisis actors”, it was the Right who was giving air-time to actual crisis actors the whole time?

 

Has Fox even issued a retraction?

Whenever a BLACK gun commits a crime it's an "assault rifle" but whenever a WHITE gun does it??

That is one of the most morally repugnant things I have heard of in a long, long time.

Twitter dummies calling for bans of the AR 15 is some scary stuff. People have zero clue what freedom and liberty means.

And I have the freedom to not get murked by an ar15. Check and mate

The tool of murder isnt solely an AR, Dicks stopping the sales of it isnt going to decrease murders and shootings. It’s all PR talk.

From that hierarchy, a few patterns emerge. The city’s criminals, for instance, prefer semiautomatic pistols to revolvers and generally seek out cheap junk guns. What’s also notable is the type of gun that doesn’t appear among the top models seized. In 2014, Chicago police recovered only three assault weapons associated with criminal incidents. “Often there’s a misimpression about the importance of assault guns and assault weapons, and it’s important to point out how rare that is,” says Phillip Cook, an economist at Duke University who studies underground gun markets. “The guns being used in Chicago for crime and murder are by and large very ordinary pistols.”

Maybe Dicks needs to ban handgun sales.

Man who says freedom is being able to buy an assault rifle at a retail sporting goods store accuses others of not knowing what freedom is.

Basically. Liberalism thinks banning one gun or all guns and the 2nd amendment will somehow deter and put an end to gun crime but in reality it wont.

 

I see the twitter world all rejoicing and singing koombyyah together as if some major thing happened as a result of Dicks stopping their field and stream stores from selling ARs...

 

This is all political PR bullshit that Dicks is trying to ride on.

 

Guns aren’t the problem.

Maybe like, adjust your Twitter feed? I'm a leftist and I didn't know about the dicks thing until you brought it up

 

NPR mentioned it about 7 times on my 30 min drive into work this morning.

I swear I literally only ever see Liberal crap on Twitter. And if I do actually see a Republican or a Democrats it's never a sensible debate between a conservative and a liberal that doesn't involve name calling and mud slinging.

 

Don't get your ideals from Twitter cause it's a bunch of tide pod eating children.

I mean dicks sporting goods is doing the responsible thing, since our government won't. I'm not understanding how having stricter laws revolving around something that clearly isn't a toy is this outrageous thing.

Is buying guns from Dick's common?

Ive never really heard anyone say they bought one there.

 

Have businesses not learned yet that taking a political stance on either side only hurts them?

 

O well. I needed to pickup some extra weight plates this week. I guess ill skip Dick's for that.

All gun shops should be banned except for Dick's. So we can say that everyone has to buy their guns from dicks.

 

This would work with a lot of things, actually:

 

Chicago Blackhawks gear

Maroon 5 CDs

Fox Racing apparel

Big Bang Theory box sets

no gun is a toy. But the type of gun does not matter. If it were a semi auto shotty, he could have easily rain down death upon those kids, especially if he had the ammo for it, you can shoot a semi auto shotgun very quick abd reload very quick...we gonna ban shottys now?

 

When the jack ass shot up the movie theater in colorado...he mad his own damn bombs but luckily they hadn’t gone off yet.

 

Bad people are bad people, tool of destruction does not matter. Banning the use of whatever flavor of the month weapon that used isnt solving anything.

 

If it makes you feel artificially safee that Dicks doesn’t sell ARs anymore then more lower to ya. It hasnt changed anything other than make people wanna shop someplace else and maybe theyll get more libtards to come buy yoga clothes from them.
