Yet another reason Dicks Sporting Goods will fail

http://www.post-gazette.com/business...s/201804060151

They will be destroying the guns they pulled off the shelves.

As a stock holder, I am pissed. The stock has really tanked over the last year or so.

Wonder if I can file suit for fiscal malfeasance?

Firearms can be dangerous. I would hate for one of their unknowledgeable employees to be accidentally hurt during the destruction of those EBRs. As firearm experts, I think we should all volunteer for Dick's to transfer those firearms to us so we can safely get rid of them properly.

Another article on this story has a quote from the CEO of DSG ...

http://www.wivb.com/news/national/di...les/1126015885

Quote:
Nickolas Cruz, the gunman who killed 17 people in Florida, mostly students, had purchased a shotgun at a Dick's store in November 2017, Stack said.

"It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting," Chairman and CEO Edward Stack wrote. "But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens."

Dick's Sporting Goods Inc. is based in Pittsburgh in a state where the first day of deer hunting season is an unofficial holiday for some families.
Wonder what additional "systems" he has in mind.

Here's the fiscal idiocracy of his decision. If Dicks would have just sent them back to the distributor, then Dicks would have only lost a little $$ on the return and then the distributor would have to ship them to someone else to sell before they made the profit to justify getting more from the manufacturer(s) to replace. By destroying them, Dicks is out all the cash, the distributor makes full sale and then replaces their stock to sell to someone else.

Dicks is the new incarnation of the Sports Authority model and will likely be bankrupt in 3-5 years. I know they will not see another dime of my money.
