Hers something for you all to think about. I know a person that has a hi-point 9mm carbine, for those of you that don't know, it is what called an SBR (short barrel rifle) that shoots a 9mm pistol cartridge. The color is "digital desert camouflage" it is also a simi automatic. It can shoot about 80-90 rounds per minute without overheating or jams and it only costs $330.00 to get started.
The AR15 is also semi automatic, the AR15 can reliably shoot about 20 to 30 rounds per minute with out overheating the barrel or other components and the AR can cost about $800.00 just to get started and up depending on the attachments.
Here is the point. A Ruger 1022, .22cal rifle will easily kill at 50 yards and doesn't look anything like an assault rifle, and with no recoil, much easier to stay on target. A box of .22 cal ammo is about $19.00 for 500 rounds.
Hum, is it really the big bad AR15 that is sooo dangerous. Do you people really want your children under the age of 21 unable to protect themselves. If your in a store that ends up (God forbid) in an active shooter situation are you going to tell your 13-14-15 year old kids that you don't want them protected by a good person with a gun. Since we are trying to ban a gun because its the gun fault, why are we not banning alcohol, or the cars that drunks are driving when they kill more people (including kids) then any mass shooting ever has! Every year !!!
As for Cabela's, please don't give in to pressure from people that are simply unschooled in constitution and or guns, although they may threaten to not shop in your stores, they will, 98% of all this is just BS.
For those of you that are offended at this, good,

Please step up and do the right thing; stop selling assault weapons and oversized magazines. I am considering supporting Dicks for my fishing and hunting needs.

Hesez - "Shit."
I am a gun owner and member of the NRA. I have purchased many guns from both you and Dicks. Please consider changing your policy to 21 years or older to purchase at the very least. It's the right thing to do.
Please stop selling AR Rifles. True hunters don't use them and they are not the ideal weapon for home or self defense. It seems that there biggest use over the past couple of years is to kill young people. Be strong like Dick's Sporting Goods and stop selling them. Thanks for listening. John. Parent & Grandfather
Dear Mr. Cabela,
Please consider no longer selling assault weapons and raising the age limit to purchase guns. It's time and you can lead by example. Thank you.
Please follow Dick's Sporting Goods. Be strong and take a stance. It is time for changes to keep our children and eveybody else safe.
TAKE A STANCE!
Please stop selling automatic assault weapons of any kind! This has nothing to do with the 2nd amendment. No where in that amendment does it state we can have assault weapons. Stand up to the NRA! Never Again, Enough is Enough!!!!!! Follow Dick's example of leadership!
Please consider making changes to the type of firearms you sell and to what age group you sell them.
My family and I will now do all our outdoor shopping at Dick's. I'm sure it was not an easy decision for them to make - but it was the right one.
Is the sale of semi automatic assault rifles really necessary?
Do the right thing and follow Dick's.No reason on Earth to own a weapon whose only use is to kill as many people in a short amount of time.The vast majority of America feels this way.Besides eliminating assault weapons does not threaten the second amendment,legally the government has the right to decide which guns can be sold.This is the beginning of a movement,Cabela's can fight and lose or be a leader.
Come on Cabela's. Do the right and ethical thing and follow Dick's Sporting Goods example. Raise that age to purchase firearms and guit selling those assult weapons. These policies have absolutely no effect on the second amendment. They are simply safe and responsible policies
There are loud mouthed whiners and the mature silent majority. Guess who spends more at your stores.
I support the Second Amendment right to purchase whichever rifle you prefer. If the FBI and Broward County Sheriffs office had done their jobs those kids would have been safe.....blaming it on a specific style of rifle when there are many more devastating choices is pure ignorance. Blame the people who don't enforce the laws we already have. I just notified Dicks I'll never purchase anything from them ever again. Never.
If Cabela's remains intelligently above the fray they should keep the politics personal - not corporate.
I am a gun owner and my husband is deer hunter. And if a farmer needs to run off a coyote with a .22, great. However, I have 5 grandchildren and I am very scared for them. Yesterday we had a gunman enter one of our urban schools for the first time in our state and thank the lord, he must have lost his nerve. The school went into Code Red .
Please stop selling assault rifles.
It really is time for sensible gun laws here in America.
I hope that you will join Dick's Sporting Goods in making reasonable revisions to the types of firearms sold through your business. Such restrictions do not in any way impinge upon anyone's 2nd Amendment rights or even on what any reasonable hunter needs to enthusiastically engage in his or her sport; they are simply a courageous and rational way of taking a stand against the gun violence that has taken so many lives in our nation and especially in our schools. Please stop supplying future mass shooters with the means to kill as many people at a time as possible. I will be unable to continue to shop at Cabelas until your business practices change.
I live in Texas. I am a gun owner and I support the second amendment. There is a Cabela's in my town where I frequent for various items in many departments. However, I will transfer all my shopping to Dicks' Sporting Goods beginning today in support of their courage to make sensible change to support gun control. I encourage Cabela's to follow the lead of Dick's and stand strong for a safer country.

Stood @cabelas gun counter for half an hour before I left. Apparently talking about elk hunting was more important than selling me a gun.
