NSSF Expels Dick’s Sporting Goods

 NSSF’s Board of Governors today unanimously voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods from membership in the Foundation for conduct detrimental to the best interests of the Foundation. Dick’s Sporting Goods recently hired a Washington D.C.-based government affairs firm, for “[l]obbying related to gun control.” Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Edward W. Stack announced earlier this year that the retail chain would end sales of modern sporting rifles, voluntarily raise the age to 21 to purchase firearms at their stores, and called for more restrictive legislation. NSSF responded that business decisions are for individual companies to make, but was nonetheless disappointed, noting the decision does not reflect the reality of the vast majority of law-abiding gun owners. Dick’s later announced it would destroy the remaining modern sporting rifle inventory.
