Announced yesterday by MKS Supply who distributes for Inland Manufacturing and Hi-Point firearms has decided to cut ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods. As of recent we have seen Springfield Armory, and Mossberg follow and cut ties. I hope our entire industry across all levels decide to follow through.
Per MKS SUPPLY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MKS Supply, Hi-Point Firearms and Inland Manufacturing are standing by the American people by refusing any further sales to Dick’s Sporting Goods & Field & Stream.
DAYTON, OH, (05/10/18) – MKS Supply, exclusive marketer for American-made Hi-Point Firearms and Inland Mfg, values the customers that it proudly serves and the God-given freedoms that they enjoy. Because the right to keep and bear arms was recognized by our founding fathers to be a fundamental right, they ensured its protection under the Second Amendment. Just as we show our commitment to our customers by standing behind our products, we believe it is equally important to show our commitment to our customers by standing behind their Second Amendment rights.
In recent months, Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, have shown themselves, in our opinion, to be no friend of Americans’ Second Amendment. We believe that refusing to sell long guns to adults under age 21, while many young adults in our military are not similarly restricted, is wrong. We believe that villainizing modern sporting rifles in response to pressure from uninformed, anti-gun voices is wrong. We believe that hiring lobbyists to oppose American citizens’ freedoms secured by the Second Amendment is wrong. Dick’s Sporting Goods and Field & Stream, in purportedly doing all of these things, have demonstrated that they do not share our values.
MKS Supply, Hi-Point Firearms and Inland Manufacturing are standing by the American people by refusing any further sales to DICK’S Sporting Goods & Field & Stream. We are proud of our products, we are proud of our customers, and we are especially proud of the freedoms secured by our great U.S. Constitution. We are committed to all three.
