Democrats are insane. What is next?
Hopeful presidential democrat Robert “Beto” O’Rourke cheered the decision of Dick’s Sporting Goods to destroy a semi-automatic rifle inventory worth $5 million.
On October 6, 2019, Dick’s CEO Ed Stack said his company was destroying “assault-style rifles” worth $5 million to keep them out of private hands. Stack also admitted the post-Parkland gun control stance of his company has resulted in losses of “a quarter of a billion [dollars].”
Stack, however, is undeterred. He is literally considering further corporate gun controls that could be undertaken by his company.
None of this was lost on O’Rourke, who used a tweet to praise Dick’s for his contributions to gun control on October 7, 2019:
Dick’s Sporting Goods is doing more to keep Americans safe from assault weapons than Congress. https://t.co/vDxjPMCxt2

O’Rourke used the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate to make clear his intentions to confiscate AR-15s, as well as AK-47-style rifles. He said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”
The National Shooting Sports Foundation calculates there are 16 million-plus privately owned AR-15s in the U.S.
