I was thinking on the way in to work today...I was pretty distraught, stressed, and lost lots of sleep over Dick's cancelling my order and it no doubt negatively impacted my Christmas. Any way mental distress/anguish could be won with regards to damages over this?
Only if a ban goes into place before you can receive damages. Being upset does not mean you can claim mental anguish from a lawsuit. All people filing litigation are technically upset over something.

The mental anguish is because the damage was literally life changing. For example a lawsuit against a rapist that produced a child, the mother could sue over that. If the ban goes into place before the litigation can complete though, their actions led to a life changing and one time event where you may never be able to own an ar15 again. That would be the only time you could conceivably add the mental anguish claim as it was explained to me by my lawyer.

Depends on your definition of justice.

Forcing Dicks to sell us Troy's at $799?
Slim to none. The broke the contract with Troy and they'll delay any lawsuit hoping an AWB gets them off the hook. Because it would be far too costly and major loss of face.

Forcing Dicks to pay the diff between $799 and what the same Troy will/would cost from another channel?
They would fight this as well hoping for the above AWB but this one is more likely.

Giving us more than the $100 so far to make us wholer?
I believe this to be a possible outcome of lawsuits (I am not a lawyer though)

Note that the note from dicks we all received said they had SUSPENDED the sale, not ended the sale of modern sporting rifles. Legally speaking that may cost them.

I'm in a holding pattern right now awaiting an opinion from the legal counsel I have consulted.
I already paid for a lawyer to have him draft a formal demand for damages letter and had it filed legally. Dick's broke several laws regarding the Deceptive Trade Practices Act of my state when they sent that letter and refund check to my door. Because of how the consumer laws are worded in my state, I am entitled now to punitive damages, as well as legal fees, as outlined by the law of up to 3 times my realized damages at a min. Other penalties in a lawsuit could be assessed although my lawyer says we would only try to go after the minimum allowable by law if litigation actually ensues.

As for now, the letter has it stated that we require them to complete performance, as well as pay all my legal fees according to the law, or reimburse me to have to purchase that firearm through another outlet which would be used through someone else. We have assessed that the current market rate for the same firearm where I live would require an additional $2000. So that is what the demand letter is asking for or the item. It also states that if I have to litigate, then we'll also go for the 3 times punitive damages on top allowed by my states consumer protection laws.

It sounds like that would be done in district court in your state? Sounds too high for small claims (usually $5,000 limit, depending on the state).

Correct. I'm in Texas where the DTPA has better consumer protection laws than the UCC adopted by most other states. It has it's pros and cons, but in this case it has more pro's, which include legal fees as part of the damages recoverable, compared to the UCC, which doesn't include legal fees as an automatic damage that can be recovered (although it typically is awarded).

Humblepie, please send us updates. I'm from Austin and would be interested is doing something similar. I had two Troy's on order that were cancelled.

This doesn't have anything to do with Dick's, but thought some of you might like it.

This is the most informative, accurate depiction of lawful firearms ownership and usage that I've seen produced throughout this entire fiasco. http://www.assaultweapon.info

I am assuming you don't deer hunt. Better round is 30-06, 308, or something like that caliber in black powder, broad head arrow, or even 45 LC/454, etc from a pistol (we can use pistols in missouri for the alternative hunting apparatus season bounce). These are better for carbine classes, competition shooting, and straight up exercising our 2A rights, here are quotes of our founding fathers, among others, on the subject:

http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/t...-amendment

Anyway, sounds like this is going pretty slow, Jan 22nd is supposed to be the AWB introduction day, and anytime between now and whenever it can pass anyway under executive order. How would the AWB passing affect the lawsuits, has anyone's lawyer discussed that? Also, are those that are suing ultimately just trying to get what they bought, or the $ to do so, or ? Just curious, I want to see Dick's eat it for their lies and trashing the rep of a good, relatively small but EXCELLENT family owned company. I have no tolerance for orgs like Dick's who lie and take advantage of a tragedy on top of that to save their asses for a stupid decision on pricing.

2A is obsolete; exercising 1A and the right to vote are much more effective ways of protecting yourself from encroachment by the government.

Frank Lloyd Wright said it best on the page you linked to.

You are seriously delusional if you think your right to vote has given you any real choices EVER.
You should ask professor, James Tracy about his 1st Amendment rights after Anderson Coopers hit piece on his right to express his opinion.

I love that quote too Smilie, the supposed "objective" media is ANYTHING but, not just on 2A, but on everything. What a great quote. And with a country of our size and the corrupt electoral vote college (that can elect a president that lost the popular vote) is bunk as well. GWs quote saying that 2A is our only protection for the rest of the constitution is no BS from my perspective, more specifically where he quoted that 2A is what gives the rest of the constitution teeth, without it the govt can screw with the rest of it with no fear. If the AWB is passed by exec order, then our govt is clearly going the wrong way, as that is abuse of exec power IMO. If the congress doesn't want to pass it because they are representing their constituents, and he says screw you I am going it anyway, well apparently we don't need the senate or congress, we have a king that knows best for all of us.

my personal vote does not, of course, that's just math. but our collective vote does. we just choose not to organize and exercise that power effectively.

my point was not that i have a lot of power as an individual, but that by taking advantage of the freedoms we have with regard to the voicing and disseminating our opinions, we can protect ourselves from the government much more effectively than with any firearm. you're on the right track by posting your criticism of our mass media; something i completely agree with. it is impossible to get objective information from just one source, but cable news often actively disinforms us, or obscures the facts of issues with emotion-inspiring opinion.

i'm not quite sure why you're taking it out on me, and doesn't the fact that you can link to a youtube video illuminating your statement somewhat invalidate your argument that we don't have the right to free speech and expression? but, thank you for your post.

the more i talk to people, the less i am convinced of the strength of democracy. and as it happens, we don't have a democracy, we have a representative republic. which means, we elect representatives who we believe in to make decisions for us. if you do not like the choices they make, organize and vote them out when their term is up. instead of complaining about someone else abusing their power, use your own.
fact is, we don't need assault weapons. they are fun, sure, but it's a pretty ignorant form of recreation if you consider how many people suffer as a result of their existence - here are around the world. i would like to hear a good counter argument as to why we need assault weapons.

How does our collective voice give us any choices when we are herded into 2 camps and of those 2 camps (Dems and Repubs) they force us to accept the dolts they want us to vote for....or did you miss the r primaries where the votes were whisked away to be counted by the powers that be and you actually believe that they were counted fair and square?
then they change the party rules to benefit their man over all newcomers. The word is CORRUPTION and you really think that we have a voice that matters or can Change anything?
Wake up and smell the stench of Americas decline into Fascism and the Police State.

why don't you ask our founding fathers how well that worked for them...
