Shoppers Say New Cabela’s Is A Victory For Virginia Gun Rights

posted on March 25, 2017

On March 9, some 2,000 people were lined up and ready to be the first shoppers at the new Cabela’s in Gainesville, Va. The third Cabela’s in the state, behind Bristol and Short Pump, this new location greets customers with a floor-to-ceiling monument etched with the Second Amendment as they enter. Located just 35 miles from the White House, many considered the store opening to be a victory for gun rights. 

“It’s a constant battle, keeping our gun rights,” William Fisher, 71, told the Washington Post. “The fact that Cabela’s is here now, and that they carry firearms, is another step in the right direction.” 

Another shopper from Virginia, Guy Arndt, was thankful the election played out the way it did. Much to his dismay, voters in Virginia selected Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. “I really don’t know what would’ve happened had she gotten in there and done what she said she was going to do to,” said Arndt. “It would’ve killed the Second Amendment.”
