Despite Stack's business teetering on the brink of going bust, he seemed undeterred.

Presidential hopeful Robert "Beto" O’Rourke has cheered Dick’s Sporting Goods move to destroy $5 million worth of semiautomatic rifle inventory.

Earlier this week, Dick’s CEO Ed Stacks confirmed his company got rid of its “assault-style rifles" in order to keep them out of private hands.

But the CEO also revealed his company’s post-Parkland gun control stance had seen a devastating "quarter of a billion [dollars]” in loses.

Despite Stack's business teetering on the brink of going bust, he seemed undeterred.

So much so, he is considering further corporate gun controls his company might undertake.

O’Rourke tweeted praise Dick’s for their gun control contributions:

Last month, O'Rourke said that police wouldn't need to go "door to door" to confiscate firearms from citizens as Americans will comply with his mandatory gun buyback plan and surrender their weapons willingly.

Speaking to a reporter in Manchester, New Hampshire this weekend, Texas Democrat O'Rourke said he doesn’t think law enforcement would have to confiscate Americans’ guns because people would simply comply with the law.

Beto is calling for a change in the law that would mean law-abiding citizens would be legally forced to surrender their "assault rifles."

“I don’t see the law enforcement going door to door,” Beto told the Washington Examiner.

Last week, O’Rourke was quick to push gun control following the deaths of four people at the hands of two gunmen a Kansas City bar.

Although all the facts were not yet known at the time, “Beto” O’Rourke called the shooting as another example of an “epidemic,” pushing for gun control.

"Not again. I visited Kansas City in August—and everyone I met was warm, generous, and welcoming.

My heart is with all who are impacted by this tragedy. Together, communities like ours, which have been victims of gun violence, will lead the way in ending this epidemic.”
