Re: Dicks destroys $5 million worth of weapons

The issue with Dick’s is that they lobby against the right to keep and bear arms. It wasn’t enough for them to stop participating in the firearms market. I have no complaints about their exiting the firearms sales industry. Their business, their choices. If shareholders aren’t happy, get out, sell. It’s the risk you take as a shareholder. But for them to lobby against my constitutional right, that’s a problem. They have become the enemy.

I think it is refreshing that someone is actually standing up for what they believe in. Even if it isn't popular or fiscally responsible why are people so butt hurt here about it?

If more people thought less about money and more about their convictions we would probably be better off.

Our beliefs here aren't more important than anyone else's whether they are the same or different than our own.
Do you believe that human beings have rights, including the right to be free from oppression? If so, this argument is a non-sequiter, based in moral relativism. The issue for those that believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, is that Dicks (among others) is perfectly happy to sacrifice profit to their idea that the common citizens have the "right" to some toys and pretty-shineys, as long as they stay within Humanistically prescribed standards. My experience with human beings does not allow me to believe that our inherent nature is, "good," or capable of elevating our condition in any transcendental way.
The only non sequitur here is the assumption that Dicks or any corporations have a belief system. Dicks is a corporation. Corporations don't "believe" anything. The only responsibility corporations have is to maximize value for their shareholders.
Chic-fil-a & Hobby Lobby are just two corporations that have beliefs & convictions which govern their business models. Countless small businesses do the same.
