More from Gander Mountain

From local news up in Wisconsin:

On Facebook, Gander Mountain said it has been a long-time partner with the NRA – but its customers have diverse and varied interests. So the chain created a new policy that prohibits hosting events for political causes and candidates.

Political neutrality on the issue of guns and the Second Amendment is simply not an option for companies in the shooting, hunting and outdoor industry. I thought Bitter’s post on this subject hit better points than mine did in this regard. Nothing in Gander’s reaction has convinced me to ever shop there again.

    Apparently, they did their homework and determined that they stand to lose more money by going the other way. Let’s see if they’re right…..

    I don’t think they did their homework at all; this is just a reaction to the outcry raised by a Lefty blog — whose readership are not big Gander Mountain customers.

    Nope, GM has Zomboed themselves. They can change their policy or fade away.

    They are now officially off my list. Plenty of time to recant their position and do some PR repair for NRA snub.

    Bye, bye Gander!
