Why Do These Stores Still Sell Assault Weapons, the Weapon of Choice for Mass Shooters?

  • by: Care2 Team

Assault-style weapons like the AR-15 are designed to kill large amounts of people quickly. Modeled after military weapons, these guns have no purpose other than to slaughter human lives.

It's no wonder, then, that AR-15s are the weapon of choice in most mass shootings. From Sandy Hook to Las Vegas to Parkland to the Tree of Life Synagogue, an AR-15 was used each time to terrorize and kill innocent Americans.

So why are these weapons being sold at stores that are catered to sportsmen?

Bass Pro Shops and its branded Cabela's stores are the only major outdoors stores to sell AR-15 and other assault-style rifles. Send an urgent message to Bass Pro Shops CEO, John Morris, now demanding that he remove these deadly weapons from store shelves.

There is no justification for allowing civilians to purchase assault-style weapons. But if Congress is going to continually fail to ban assault-style weapons and protect Americans from mass shootings, then we must go another route and demand that sporting goods stores stop selling these guns. Hunters do not need semi-automatic weapons in order to shoot deer and other game. And the risks of these deadly weapons falling into the hands of a mass murderer is just too great.

Please sign the petition today asking Cabela's and its parent company, Bass Pro Shops to remove assault-style weapons from their shelves and website immediately.
