Dick´s Sporting Goods will destroy assault-style
rifles pulled from shelves

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, by Stephanie Ritenbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:poster, 4/15/2018 9:09:58 PM

When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms

A win for manufacturers since they already got paid for product that isn´t being distributed to meet demand.

Corporate virtue signaling.
We just know there will be a huge tax write off next year.
I´m surprised the accountant lawyers took this long to work out the tax advantage and get "good press" while they´re at it.
BTW with a full load of bird shot at a relatively close range and a decent pump shotgun, one can do as much damage as one of those "horrible" single action "assault" rifles.

Something tells me that selling so-called assault-style rifles, that mechanically are nothing more than modern semi-automatic rifles, is a very small percentage of Dick’s Sporting Goods business and that they are using the firearms issue as advertising.

Many decades have passed since I dealt with corporate accounting.

But still, it strikes me as odd that Dick´s can take a tax write-off on inventory (firearms) they deliberate destroy.

Or that a manufacturer would take rifles back and give Dick´s a refund when Dick´s deliberately chose to not sell them.

IOW "Virtue signaling" sounds about right.

#12, this will apply ONLY at F&S stores since Dick´s quit handling modern sporting rifles several years back and only their F&S division still handled them.

Never, EVER going into a Dick´s again. Never even saw a F&S store, apparently not around the midwest.

This was not a business decision, it was an unwise liberal-placating decision. They will lose many more customers than they have counted on. I don´t believe that they will destroy rifles retailing at an average six hundred bucks each with genuine name-brand ARs going for one grand. They will quietly transfer inventory at cost to other retailers or foreign countries. It´s all a big noise-making stunt.

Receiving a tax writeoff would be like smashing your new car with a sledge hammer so you could do the same. Not gonna happen.

I am not sure what the demographic split is on sporting goods customers between conservatives and commies, but don’t know that many anti-civilian-gun-owner commies that are outdoorsmen - would think that group is buying kids soccer gear, spandex jogging stuff and low-end non-pro shop tennis gear.

But to go out of your way and tell at least 50% of your customers to shop somewhere else doesn’t sound like a viable sales strategy for this kind of market, in my humble opinion.

Reminds me of when Purina Chow or somebody similar bought Eddie Bauer expedition outfitters and turned it into a fashion brand - not in business anymore.

A longtime staffer for the Senate Intelligence Committee has been arrested on charges of lying to investigators probing the potential leaking of classified information, the Justice Department announced Thursday night.

He was arrested Thursday and is expected to appear in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland on Friday. His arrest comes just one day

Washington - After three days of debate and years of work, the House of Representatives rejected the $867 billion farm bill that included a provision to impose stricter work requirements on recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, better known as food stamps or SNAP. The farm bill was expected to pass on a strict party-line vote until 30 Republicans rebelled and voted with the entire Democratic caucus in voting it down. For Democratic opponents, SNAP was the sticking point. After the bill failed, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., denounced the bill "cruel," "destructive" and "heartless," and

Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights.

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club."
