Springfield Armory Severs Ties With Dick’s

Springfield Armory issued a press release today saying that they will be severing all ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods as well as their Field and Stream subsidiary. The move comes as a result of Dick’s hiring anti-gun lobbyists to push for more gun control.

I say more firearms companies need to do like Springfield Armory.

From their release:

GENESEO, IL, (05/03/18) – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its  subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment  lobbying.This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment  rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position  runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right  and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers,  without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny  Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.
