Dick’s Sporting Goods refuses to send customers Carbine Semi-Automatic Rifles that they paid for

bushmaster_ar15_carbineAs if it wasn’t bad enough that Dick’s Sporting Goods decided to try and get some PR after the Newtown shooting that they  suspended the sale of modern sporting rifles in all their stores, but what about the people who bought their rifles before the Newtown shooting? They are getting f*cked over too. Seems that ‘Dick’s’ is only sending partial orders of rifles that were placed before the shooting, sending out some, but not all. That really makes sense doesn’t it?

    Gun owners should boycott Dick’s Sporting Goods – on ALL merchandise. They obviously don’t want our money!

    Not sure about all states, but here if you and i agree on a sale of anything, and you take my money and don’t deliver , It’s called ” Theft by deception.”

    If i pay you with a credit card and you don’t live up to your end, Wouldn’t that be a federal crime enforced by the SS ????

      I’m not sure if it would be a crime, but it would be a breach of contract under civil law.

      If Dick’s refuses to deliver the rifle (or anything) that has been paid for, then they must refund the payment. If taken to court, they could be liable for additional costs + penalty involved in the buyer having to get the product from another vendor.
      ie: If Dick’s sold the rifle for $1,000 and didn’t deliver, and the buyer had to pay $1,500 for a new rifle from another dealer because the price went up due to demand/scarcity, then Dick’s could be on the hook for the additional $500 + taxes and other associated costs. Either that, or they deliver the rifle as per the original contract.

        I guess they didn’t think ahead…all gun owners should boycott them and let them see how long they can stay in business selling barbells while being dumbbells!!
