Dear Mr. Stack: Please let me say that I have enjoyed shopping at "Dicks", spending lots of money, and in general have been very satisfied. I am sorry our relationship has to end. Your recent attack on the 2nd admendment, law abiding citizens, and the NRA (of which I am a proud member) has no basis in reality and will not accomplish anything except drive customers from your business. Actions have consequences and as such myself, my extended family and friends will now spend our money elsewhere buying our hunting,fishing,camping,hiking items at your competitors, and never spend money at your business again.
You were good at retailing sports merchandise, you should have stayed out of politics.
