Dick's management is afraid of King Andy. A couple a years ago, before the UnSafe act went into law. I went to buy two boxes of 22LR. The person at the register asked me to give them my date of birth (I'm now in my 60's). When I asked why, they said it was required by law. I made a big stink about Dick's making up laws arbitrarily instead of following the law, and asked for the store manager. when he came, I told him that the law did not require me to give him my DOB to buy ammo, just that I had to be of legal age. He said the UnSafe Act required it. I told him that the UNSafe act was not in effect until the following year. He backed down and sold me the ammo without me having to give them my DOB.

When you allow a lie to go unchallenged, it becomes the truth.
