Time will tell but I have a hunch they won't miss a beat.


That's what target thought when they decided to allow men in women's bathrooms. Stock price fell. You should know that trader.


They have fully recovered from that blip on the radar, their bigger concern is Amazon.

That is true but they found out their actions do have consequences.

The Dick's Sporting Goods closest to us, about 40 minute drive into Charlottesville, Va. is closing. Gander Mountain closed a year ago. :|

Reading comments on Dick's announcement via Facebook this morning. Lots of Liberals cheering on the decision, admitting they don't shop at Dick's or even own guns. 95% of patrons said they would be shopping elsewhere from now on. Always a risky move when a business starts to mix policy with politics.

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

Well I have never been into a Dicks guess I never will. I got a shirt that say “Ban Idiots not guns” love that shirt. Only an idiot would think banning a type of gun or guns altogether would solve the problem cause that has worked so well with prostitution and drugs.

All this gun talk is just a diversion from having to deal with the actual issues.

Doesn’t matter perception becomes reality. The media masses follow perception. The only strength we have had as a group is block voting and our block is becoming weaker each generation.

My money says they won't get squat done.... maybe some background check reform.

Only thing that will come of this is you know who just shot himself in the foot.

Keep believing that.
Both the 1st and 2nd are under attack in our education system and media.
Each generation is one step closer to the goal. Unless you have a world event like the Depression or WWII that binds the masses to a common set of values and thoughts were done. This has been classic divide and conquer through identity politics.

I would like to know that myself.
I have to fill out the same paperwork at the gun show as at the local gun shop.
If you you buy it on the street I understand there is no paper trail cept the police report when it was most likely stolen.

The problem with that is the one's that need to be controlled aren't being weeded out.
