Unable to stay out of the news, Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack, proudly announced recently that the chain destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of the hands of citizens. We have thoughts.
During our Brownell’s Bullet Points we consider the “Bubba’d up” rifle. Why would you need or want to have a red dot optic and a light mounted to a rifle?
For our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we have a “Go Team Moment”. A real estate agent was forced to save her life during an open house when a man produced a knife and rope. What are some of the lessons we can learn here?

Real estate agent Dawna Hetzler was setting up for an open house when a man arrived at the property. Initially, Hetzler didn’t think much of it, as he seemed like a potential buyer, asking the “right questions” and talking about loans. The man then asked to see the upstairs, and that’s when things took a turn.
The incident took place in Commerce City, Colorado, on August 4. According to a report by 9 News, the man – later identified by authorities as 43-year-old Ernest Robert Chrisman – arrived at the open house at about 11:30 am.
“He asked the right questions,” said Hetzler. “We talked about loans, what he had to qualify for.”
Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack told CBS News that his company destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of private hands.
Dick’s announced a halt to “assault-style rifles” two weeks after the February 14, 2018, Parkland high school shooting.
On April 17, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Dick’s was destroying its “assault-style rifle” inventory, rather than returning the firearms to their manufacturers. Fox News quoted a spokesperson from Dick’s saying, “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change. We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”
