I don't see anything about the rights of insurance companies in the constitution, and I don't think those are unalienable rights either way. Stop your attempts of infringing on the people's right to bear arms.
You are not allowed to do certain jobs till you are 26 because the insurance doesn't cover you. You ate not allowed to vote and participate on many things till you are 21 or whatever the majority is.

BTW, I believe, for the most value out of your firearm, not just price but knowledge and support, that's where one should purchase them.
Why wouldn't you applaud this move by dicks?

This is just another knee jerk reaction to the Parkland school shooting and an attempt to appease the left. I imagine this was prompted due to the shooters age. This will most likely be hailed by the left, as a step in the right direction in their ultimate goal of greatly reducing legal citizens ability to own firearms.

In 2015, two Muslim's in San Bernardino California, killed 14 people in an attack at a Christmas party. What would have been the reaction of the left had Walmart and Dicks sporting goods decided to quit selling guns and ammo to Muslim's? Would we be seeing the left agreeing with this move and seeing it as a way to keep even more guns off the streets?

Of course not. They would be going out of their minds attacking both companies with accusations of racism due to fact that these two Muslim's are not representative of all Muslim's in this country. But not a word from the left when it is legal adults in this country that are being targeted. These same adults that can join our military where they are ISSUED, not an AR-15, but a M-16 with the capability to fire in fully automatic mode (or a 3 round burst).

The blatant hypocrisy of the left is on full display here along with our President that is complicit in this policy. We need to stand up to the left and defend the rights of ALL Americans to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights regardless of age, race or religion.
For some reason I doubt any of the people who welcome these stores raising the age to buy bullets and firearms or to stop selling semi-automatic rifles under the guise of not selling 'assault weapons actually buy any of those products. It would be like a store that sells real fur coats to stop selling mink coats to appease the stupid tards in peta or a massive national grocery store that's not a niche grocery store chain to stop selling meat to appease ***** vegans.

I did. Obviously you didn't read it or if you did you didn't understand. I'm just sayin' their decision may be a grand gesture, but fruitless.
I believe Dicks has every right to sell whatever they want and not sell whatever they wish to whom ever they chose. There is no law that requires them, or Walmart, to refuse service to an 18 year old. Or not sell a particular product. Just as I believe any baker can refuse to participate in a gay wedding if they chose. And not sell a personally customized product.


I sometimes get the idea you are unable to conceive someone with an open mind.

I know what you are saying and I agree with you, but that was not my point.

The point is that why do we accept in this country, that it is OK to discriminate against one group of people, but there are those that would go out of their minds if the same were done to another group of people? I wanted to see how anyone on this board would be able to justify this blatant hypocrisy.

There is all sorts of reasons people support discrimination of some sort. Sometimes its because what they oppose flies in the face of tradition, or because they believe in certain stereotypes. In regard this issue those who support the store doing this generally don't think average citizens should be able to have firearms. So this is just a inch closer towards their goal of severely restricting firearms or banning them. Sure its a private companies doing this and there are ****load of stores who won't discriminate against adults under 21. But they probably feel that getting private business to side with them is just a step towards their goal if they can't get anywhere at the federal level.

We all have different targets for discrimination. It is not hypocrisy. The hypocrisy comes when legislation is called upon to make other people fall in line with it.

Its not hypocrisy, its just your own ignorance of the law. Its about legally protected classes of people. Muslims are protected from discrimination because it is illegal to discriminate against someone based on their religion.
