Liberal “mainstream media” appear to be a modern-day version of Hans Brinker’s Hero of Haarlem. Drip, drip, drip.

Merger Aims to Enhance Ability to Serve Outdoor Enthusiasts with Complementary Product Offerings and Geographic Footprints
Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Incorporated (NYSE:CAB), two iconic American outdoor companies with similar humble origins, and with a shared goal to better serve those who love the outdoors, today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Bass Pro Shops will acquire Cabela’s for $65.50 per share in cash, representing an aggregate transaction value of approximately $5.5 billion.
In addition, upon closing Bass Pro Shops will commence a multi-year partnership agreement with Capital One, National Association, a wholly-owned national banking subsidiary of Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF), under which Capital One will originate and service the Cabela’s CLUB, Cabela’s co-branded credit card, and Bass Pro Shops will maintain a seamless integration between the credit card program and the combined companies’ retail operations and deep customer relationships. All Cabela’s CLUB points and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Rewards points will be unaffected by the transactions and customers can continue to use their credit cards as they were prior to the transaction. Capital One intends to continue to operate the Cabela’s CLUB servicing center in Lincoln, Nebraska.
A driving force behind this agreement is the highly complementary business philosophies, product offerings, expertise and geographic footprints of the two businesses. The essence of both Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s is a deep passion to serve outdoor enthusiasts and support conservation. The combination brings together three of the nation’s premier sporting brands: Cabela’s, a leader in hunting; Bass Pro Shops, a leader in fishing; and White River Marine Group, a worldwide leader in boating, which is part of Bass Pro Shops.
Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s and White River Marine Group represent the best of American entrepreneurship, innovation and devotion to customers. The combined companies will strive to provide a remarkably enhanced experience for customers, increased opportunities for team members and greater support for conservation activities.
The Open Debate Coalition website allows users to vote for questions that are important to them and ABC and CNN debate moderators have agreed to consider the top 30 questions as chosen by voters for use in the Sunday, October 9, debate.
One of those questions, posed by Tim S., is gaining ground with nearly 20,000 votes. Tim’s question reads “How will you ensure the 2nd amendment is protected?“. The question follows up by noting that “[t]oo much crime is blamed on the tool, not the person. How will you protect law abiding citizens to protect themselves.“
If you watched the first debate between Presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, you may have thought that the debate was a little lopsided in what many considered to be a 2-on-1 tag team match against one candidate. This is the American people’s opportunity to have the candidates get to the point and talk about what matters.
VOTE NOW to take the Second Amendment question to the debate stage next Sunday and see where the candidates stand. One candidate’s name is already on one of the most egregious abrogations of the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. The other candidate’s official 2A platform plans to “defend the Second Amendment of our Constitution“, saying that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.” Trump’s specific plan includes “nominate United States Supreme Court justices that will abide by the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States,” “enforce the laws on the books,” “empower law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves,” and “defend the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”
Let’s put the question to them directly and see what they have to say about it. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to Stand and Fight for Second Amendment rights by joining or renewing your NRA membership today.
