Cabela’s Targeted By Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety

posted on July 16, 2015

Bloomberg-funded groups Everytown and Moms Demand Action are targeting Cabela’s, pushing the national retailer to halt the sale of guns in cases where the National Instant Criminal Background Check System delay status is unresolved after the federally mandated three-day period.

In truth, Bloomberg and his minions are simply trying to bully a law-abiding business that is already following federal law. The “Instant” part of NICS was instituted so law-abiding gun purchasers don’t have to wait to make their purchase, and the FBI has the responsibility to turn background checks around in a timely manner. Likewise, law-abiding citizens have the right to buy a gun without undue interference from government. 

Per the FBI website, “The Federal Firearms Licensee is not prohibited from transferring the firearm after three business days have passed.” Since Cabela’s is simply following federal law, the company doesn’t deserve harassment for doing so from the likes of the elitist Michael Bloomberg.
