No "weenies" are the people that buy a firearm from Dick's Sporting Goods. Disclaimer: Buy from a reputable gun dealer.....not the Home Depot of Guns. Buy your firearm from those that sell only that.....firearms. Plenty of smaller gun shops around. They tend to know more, teach you more, and their not just out there for their own bottom line. Find one you like, you end up being treated like family......Go get that at Dick's.

So they are going to stop selling black cored rifles.......
These chains of businesses caving to emotions instead of actual logic should alarm everyone.....
We no longer deal in facts, and can be swayed to make long term decisions of consequence solely based on media hype and kids who have turned political activists , who probably can't even name the areas of government, and are now trying to dictate the policies there in....
The US has lost its effing mind.......
I'm not a fan of this decision, but we do have to recognize that this is how the market/capitalism is supposed to work. Businesses change and mold themselves to fit demand and are easily affected by pressures from the buying public.
Whether or not the public's fears are legitimate are another matter altogether, but Dick's sees that the people are pissed and have to alter their practices in order to appeal to potential future spenders.

Except the majority of people pissed don't even buy weapons.

This, it amazes me that so many people only believe in the “free market” when it suits them.
But I suppose that’s the trend these days.
