Living up to their name, Dick’s, the sole vendor of Troy Industries‘ weapons inventory has decided that they won’t fill orders which were placed before Christmas for those semi-automatic rifles according to The Blaze in a link sent to us by Chief Tango;
Dick’s announced a week before Christmas that it was suspending sales of “modern sporting rifles” in all stores, “out of respect for the victims of the Connecticut massacre,” CBS News 11 notes.
I’ve noticed a lot of companies are doing similar stuff. For example, Amazon used to sell rifle magazines and before the end of the weekend before Christmas, they stopped. When I finally found some magazines for sale at Bass Pro Shops, I discovered that PayPal wouldn’t approve the sale because it was rifle magazines. It didn’t kill my order, but it was a minor inconvenience. Their loss.
Cheaper Than Dirt thought better of their initial decision to stop selling weapons from their online shop.
I guess, politically, it’s easier to piss off gun owners than it is to piss off the perpetually outraged of the Left. But would any of those companies be brave enough to deny a health care benefit that provided abortions to their employees? I don’t think so.
