Cabela’s Stands Up For The Second Amendment

Posted: January 19, 2013 by ShortTimer in Economic freedom, free markets, Guns

Mills Fleet Farm took a stand the other day, now Cabela’s is taking a stand.  From Cabela’s facebook page:

Due to recent changes made by Reed Exhibitions regarding the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, Cabela’s will no longer sponsor this year’s event. After careful consideration regarding Cabela’s business practices, and the feelings of our customers, Cabela’s will, unfortunately, not have a presence at the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

For those who missed it, the reason why is because Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show are the folks doing this:

The organizer of the annual Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg apparently is banning so-called assault weapons from this year’s show.

Reed Exhibitions has informed some exhibitors — including Kinsey’s Outdoors in Mount Joy and The Sportsman’s Shop in New Holland, representatives of both stores said — that AR-style rifles and high-capacity ammunition magazines capable of holding 30 rounds or more may not be sold or displayed at the show, scheduled for Feb. 2-10 at the State Farm Show Complex on Cameron Street.

Alex Cameron, general manager of Kinsey’s, said he was told the ban was due to the “current political climate.”

Cabela’s may not have taken quite as hard-line of a stance as Mills Fleet Farm did, but it’s a pretty strong indicator when they opt out of a show because they know what they and their customers believe.  They’re taking a stand.
