Now that Dick’s Sporting Good has alienated Second Amendment supporters, gun stores across the nation are using the sporting goods’ store’s mistakes to promote their businesses.
Boyert Shooting Center in Katy, Texas made fun of Dick’s with their latest sign:
“It was meant to have people react to it and hopefully most understand that we are referring to the company and not an individual. We have had a lot of people come in and tell us they love the sign,” Program Director Travis Clark told The Houston Chronicle.
According to Clark, the response has been fairly positive.
Boyert also decided to offer a discount in honor of Springfield’s decision to cut ties with the sporting goods company. They held a one-day sale.
From their website:
SPRINGFIELD ARMORY “DONE WITH DICK’S” BLOWOUT SALE

A pawn shop in Little River, South Carolina also decided to poke fun of Dick’s Sporting Goods:
The sign was put up a few days before the deadly shooting in Santa Fe, Texas. According to pawnbroker Brad Stamper, most people are receptive to the sign.
“It’s about 99 percent support,” Stamper told WMBF-TV. “Our phone’s ringing off the hook.”
Stamper said the shop has received supportive phone calls from callers in Texas, Missouri, Florida and Colorado.
Stamper recently took to Facebook to post a statement about their sign, which was shared on the company’s Facebook page:
Barb Davey and myself just want to thank all the supporters that have supported the sign we have in front of our PawnShop Crossroads Pawn & Guns. We have had so many supporters and hundreds of phone calls a day to the store with everyone from all over the world supporting us and saying we are doing a great job. This sign was not posted to promote violence, but to promote our 2nd Amendment and freedom of speech that we are suppose to have in America. Our hearts go out to all of the families that have been effected by those tragic events that has taken place at schools and events. Instead of people being negative towards us which hasn’t been but about 10% we should be focusing on how to better secure our schools and events. How many shootings happen in the White House or Airports. None so whatever measures they are taking at those locations should be implemented into our schools to protect our children and people at large events. America has the funds to do this so we need to come together as one to make this happen. Again thanks to everybody that has called, messaged, shared or commented on our sign we very much appreciate it. Our story has made it world wide and all over the news, radio, talk shows and social media. It’s time to make a statement and stand up for our rights!!
Hundreds of students nationwide walked out of their schools Wednesday to show support for their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms.
The national demonstration, dubbed “Stand for the Second,” was organized by high school senior Will Riley of Carlsbad, New Mexico, in response to the wave of student-led, gun reform protests held in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.
“We have not ignored the huge movement of our peers against these fundamental human rights and liberties, but the American people must know not all of our generation shares in the shortsighted destruction of our Constitution,” according to the event’s website.
Participants planned to walk out of their school at 10 a.m. local time to observe 16 minutes of silence ― one minute less than their peers did on March 14, during the National School Walkout to protest gun violence.
National School Walkout participants rallied for 17 minutes to honor the 17 people killed on Feb. 14 during the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Stand for the Second’s website explained what the 16-minute walkout on Wednesday represented:
In the spirit of civility with school districts around the country, we are asking for one minute less than the other side received. Additionally, it is estimated that in the US each year 1.5 million people use a firearm to defend themselves. Break that down to 16 minutes, and you have 91 people using a gun responsibly and correctly. We want to draw attention to the people who are legally and effectively exercising their rights.
Stand for the Second marked the first cohesive, student-led national demonstration in favor of gun rights since the Parkland massacre. While the scale of the event was noticeably smaller than the recent student-led gun violence protests, which have drawn thousands of demonstrators and national media attention, students from at least 40 states were expected to walk out.
I am a concealed carry permit holder, and I am valedictorian of my high school. … I don’t fit the media narrative. There are a ton of people like me who also don’t fit that narrative.
Lucus Bendzsa, high school senior from Indiana
Lucus Bendzsa, a senior at West Vigo High School in Terre Haute, Indiana, said he planned to participate in the walkout Wednesday to “show that not all high school and college kids are leftists against” the right to keep and bear arms.
“We are all not ideologically aligned as much as the media portrays us as such,” Bendzsa told HuffPost in an email. “We are, as Kayne West said, ‘independent thinkers.’ We form our own opinions and we are stout in what we believe.”
Bendzsa said he believes the Second Amendment to be the “most imperative” of all the constitutional amendments.
“It is the amendment that secures all of the others,” he said. “It is the amendment that guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of religion. It is the amendment that guarantees the right of equal protection under the law.”
Not all students who support the Second Amendment were in favor of the walkouts. Kyle Kushuv, a survivor of the Parkland shooting and outspoken gun rights advocate, tweeted Wednesday that “disrupting” classrooms wasn’t the right thing to do.
For his part, Bendzsa said it’s important to challenge what he feels is the media’s incorrect narrative surrounding gun rights advocates.
“It’s not all a bunch of uneducated rednecks like the media portrays,” Bendzsa said. “I am a concealed carry permit holder, and I am valedictorian of my high school. … I don’t fit the media narrative. There are a ton of people like me who also don’t fit that narrative.”
“Us millennials are not cookie cutters,” he continued. “We are all unique and different with our own ideas.”

Warner: Power without authority is tyranny. That’s the line I’m trying to keep you from crossing.
Warner: Okay, what?
Keane: What assurance can you give me that if I rescind the firings, you won’t just go ahead and sign the document anyway?
Warner: I guess you’ll just have to trust me.
Keane: When you’re one signature away from sitting at this desk? After you ignored my phone calls knowing full well -what I was going through?
Warner: I needed the time, I needed – time, I knew you wouldn’t allow without browbeating me somehow into pledging my loyalty.
Keane: Which, now, all of a sudden, you’re willing to do.
Warner: In good faith, as long as you do the right thing.
Keane: I don’t like being dictated to.
Warner: I’m defining the limits of my support. There’s a difference.
Keane: Without a majority of the Cabinet, which you do not have, as of now, that document is invalid. You are pointing an empty gun at my head.
Warner: Before I came here, I spoke to three separate lawyers. Each one confirmed that firing close to a third of your Cabinet under these circumstances is probably unconstitutional.
Keane: The White House counsel doesn’t share their opinion.
Warner: I’m giving you a simple choice, Madam President. Plunge this nation into crisis or defend it from its real enemies. Madam President—
Keane: The answer is no.
Warner: Then you leave me no choice but to deliver to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House a document declaring you unfit for the Office of the Presidency.
Mike Adams–This article is part of a series of short, philosophical observations about the recent anti-gun hysteria and media PSYOP that exploits children to demand their own enslavement under authoritarianism.
The Second Amendment was created to ensure that individuals have the right to protect themselves from irrational mobs
What the anti-gun mindless mobs don’t seem to yet recognize is that the Second Amendment was created, in part, to allow citizens to protect themselves from mindless mobs just like you.
That’s because America is not a democracy. It’s a Constitutional Republic, and in a Constitutional Republic, the will of the mob cannot override the liberties of the individual, no matter how enraged, insane, clueless or stupid the mob becomes. (And today’s anti-gun mob is clearly pushing the limits of stupidity and irrationality, by any measure.)
The current mob of mindless anti-gun protesters believe that if they all just get angry enough and spout enough profanity, the intensity of their emotional state somehow overrides everybody else’s individual liberties. This is why their fascist front-man — student propagandist David Hogg — is a foul-mouthed, hate-filled lunatic who spews endless f##ktardery while claiming anyone who opposes him want to “murder children.” (All these anti-gun leftists, for the record, quite openly advocate murdering children as long as they’re not yet born.)
These frothing, hate-filled lunatic young people believe that because 15 people died in a school shooting, that 300+ million Americans must be punished even though they had nothing whatsoever to do with the violence at the school in Parkland, Florida. And if you disagree with them, you are attacked and smeared for daring to “criticize children,” even though those supposed “children” are demanding to nullify the most important liberties upon which this nation was founded.
Notice, too, that the anti-gun Left cannot make these arguments as adults. They have to exploit and puppeteer so-called “children” to argue all these points for them, all while attacking the other side of the debate for daring to question children. (God forbid what would happen if we all began questioning the logic of inexperienced children, huh?)
Our Republic was structured to strictly limit the powers of government and majority mobs
The Founding Fathers of America knew how damaging and dangerous mindless mobs could become, and that’s precisely why they structured this Constitutional Republic as a system of self-governance that strictly limits the power of government and the power of the voting majority to take away individual liberties.
They knew that if the majority were allowed to rule with absolute power, it wouldn’t be long before a dangerous political movement swept across the country, demonizing and criminalizing individual citizens who held minority views. That scenario, of course, has unfolded many times across world history, including during the rise of the Third Reich, during which Adolf Hitler passed strict gun control legislation while whipping up the mindless masses into a frenzy of seething anger and a desire to kill their political opponents. (Today’s marching students are the new Brownshirts…)
If all that sounds familiar, it’s exactly the same tactic now being pursued by the “Hitler Youth” fascist front-man named David Hogg, a malicious, dangerous crybully filth-spewer whose speech patterns, stiff-armed salute and armbands closely mimic Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler.
David Hogg actually physically resembles the genocidal sociopath Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister, indirectly responsible for the deaths of millions of Jews:
The Second Amendment grants Americans the right to defend themselves against mindless, violent mobs whipped into an irrational frenzy by hate-filled propagandists like David Hogg
When would-be tyrants seek to exploit anger and irrationality to give rise to a dangerous cult-like mob — what David Hogg promises will be “a revolution” to destroy his political enemies — the Second Amendment gives every American the right to defend their life, liberty and nation against fascist tyrants and violent mobs.
In an ironic sort of way, David Hogg and the mindless mobs of the anti-gun left are demonstrating precisely why we must never surrender the Second Amendment. If we did, how would we defend ourselves against their escalating violence that will eventually target all conservatives and Trump supporters?
Sadly, it seems that America’s current mindless mob is too stupid to figure out just how many Americans are armed in self-defense, so they will probably actually try to carry out a violent “Cultural Revolution” mass killing event in the near future, at which point they will quickly discover just how effective the Second Amendment can be at defending a nation against authoritarianism and mob-rule tyranny.
We already defeated the Nazis once; and we can go it again right here in America
A civil war is coming in America, most likely, and if it happens, the Second Amendment will be precisely what makes sure this Constitutional Republic survives the attempted uprising of yet another murderous fascist regime rooted in seething anger and authoritarianism. We defeated the Nazis once already in Europe, and we will gladly do it again right here in America. Yes, even if those Nazis happen to be 18, which is reminiscent of exactly what happened in Communist China during the Cultural Revolution, when an entire generation of young people took to the streets to murder their own parents and usher in the era of totalitarianism and communism that persists today under “Emperor Xi.”
(That’s the blueprint the radical Left is trying to pull off in America right now, in case you were curious. They know they can’t do it without disarming the population first, which is precisely why the gun control psyop has been rolled out at this moment in history…)
Keep saluting Hitler, carrying your anti-Trump signs and wearing your Nazi armbands, you clueless libtards. It makes it all that much easier for the rest of us to identify the fascists among us who frankly don’t deserve to participate in this Constitutional Republic at all.

The mainstream media has managed to cloud this issue enough that it has been difficult to ascertain the truth. However, it is becoming more clear that losing Net Neutrality is a very bad thing and President Trump is not coming to the rescue. We could very well be in the last days of a free internet. The First Amendment is on life-support.
