Major CEO Makes Major Turn On Gun Control

Va The Washington Examiner:

The CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods is quietly exploring whether to launch a third-party presidential bid after he gained national attention for banning assault-style weapons at his stores.

 At least one focus group in southern Wisconsin was presented with various messages centering on Ed Stack, a longtime Republican donor, according to Politico. The group was presented with possible three-way matchups that included the billionaire businessman, President Trump, and former Vice President Joe Biden or Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Stack, who has taken a stand on gun control by eliminating the sales of assault-style rifles from his stores in the wake of the 2018 Parkland, Florida, school shooting, criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell this week for failing to bring to a vote a bill that would require universal background checks for gun sales.

“I wish he’d have the guts to bring it to a vote,” Stack said.
