and that is exactly the point.. money that you spend will end up in the pockets of people that want to limit your rights.. and you absolutely cannot stop it.. I mean as a former NJ resident.. that was literally my life.. pay taxes to a government that not only wants to limit my rights but has the direct power to do so.. and acts on it.. but what can you do about it.. you can limit yourself and try to only purchase from non anti 2A companies.. but to what end.. your money still will go where it goes.. either directly or indirectly..
I just use chunks of cuda to catch Amber jacks on the reef to use for shark bait. The skin on cudas is really tough so it stays on the hook while all the small reef fish pick at it.
For survival though I think I'd rather eat a cuda than An MRE lol
The challenge is that Dick's is actively working against the 2nd Amendment. It seems counter-intuitive since they sell some firearms/ammo, but money in their pocket will directly support 2nd Amendment advertising/propaganda.
Your direct dollars to Dick's is working against your rights to keep and bear arms.
The argument about indirect dollars is specious. It's a general truism that could be applied to all dollars spent by anyone, not direct support to a specific vendor/establishment.
and to dive a little deeper....
you support one of the largest anti gun machines to ever exist... the NJ government through your tax dollars.. which is exactly why I left NJ.. worrying about dicks sporting goods while living under the oppressive NJ government is like worrying about a faucet in your house dripping while the entire second floor is engulfed in flames..
