Dick's Sporting Goods got woke

Dick's were the first retailer to stop selling 'assault' rifles  and to ban the sale of guns to under-21s.

Net sales were well below estimates.

Share price fell 10%.

Get woke go broke.

This is becoming a common thing but these companies are still trying to pander to the PC/SJW crowd.

Private companies can do what they like, if they're public with shareholders they could get sued.

No they won't (at least not for very long). This is a publicly traded corporation. Profitability will ALWAYS trump morality.

You can't pay too much attention to a vocal minority.
