Didn't Cabelas pull their sponsorship on this due to them banning AR's?

Re: 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show

Apparently no black guns, accessories for black guns or even literature for the promotion of any black guns. There is a long list of businesses who are no longer taking their booth and the list continues to grow.

While surfing a few shooting related web sites it became obvious that a boycott by shooters, hunters and regular show-goers is growing fast too.

My hunting buddies and I go every year but this year we'll help the cause by joining the boycott. Instead, I sent a nice donation to the NRA. It may only be symbolic but it's the best I can do at the moment.

I'm going so I can compare a few scopes. I don't agree with them banning ARs or related items, but I have no where else to go.
