    Dick's Wants To Start Selling "Smart" Guns

    This situation situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

    And they're just the guys to do it.


    You know Dick’s, the anti-gun sports and outdoor chain that’s had trouble selling the guns it still carries since they decided to drop the sale of scary black rifles, wrote checks to fund gun control lobbyists and some firearms manufacturers have refused to sell to them. But Ed Stack, Dick’s CEO and largest shareholder, has a new idea to boost his stores’ firearms business: jump into selling smart guns.

    As Reuters reports . . .
    Ed Stack risked the ire of some suppliers and customers in February when he decided to pull assault-style weapons from the shelves of Dick’s Sporting Goods, the $3.6 billion retailer he runs. His latest move will do so again. Stack says he would support the sale of weapons that can only be fired by their owner, an idea that traditional gunsmiths and their lobbyists hate, but investors should cautiously welcome.

            Those guns better be smart enough to buy themselves.

              1. Their business their rules. My money my rules.

              2. When they make an iPhone that I don't have to input my code when my fingers are damp, dirty, wet, etc. Until then, fuck that shit.

                I guarantee the trail leads back to Bloomturd. What they're not saying is they will also have the technology in place to de-activate any "smart guns" in any given location or region with the press of a button.

                    The only thing I have bought from Dick's over the last 6 years has been ammo when and if it was on sale. Now it's Target Sports USA (Prime Ammo) FTW!

                      I would guess a similar technology for electric cars will also exist.

                              The board of directors needs to get rid of this guy.

                              makes me wonder if activists investors got involved with Dicks to change the gun industry.....but I have no proof

                              I was hoping these activist investors run out of money by now, but maybe they are government funded
