Cabela’s Pulls Out of Gun Show, For All The Right Reasons


While Dick’s Sporting Goods is busy hiding all the scary black guns they used to sell, and Wal-Mart runs out of ammo, Cabela’s stands there with arms wide open, ready to embrace all the gun owners in a big, manly bear hug.

They get it, it seems, because when Reed Exhibitions decided to ban the display and exhibition of “assault rifles” and high capacity magazines, Cabela’s told them what they could do with their so-called gun show:

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.

Basically, Cabela’s doesn’t want any part of this war on the Second Amendment.

And the response has been positive.  The announcement on their Facebook page has over 2,800 shares, over 2,800 Likes and over 11,000 comments, mainly like these:

Good on you, Cabela’s.  You just made a customer for life.

I’m guessing more than one.
