glad to see the conversation has picked back up a little steam
I don't know if I'd agree that anyone who still shops there is a part of the problem, the problem lies with Liberal Democrats in Chicago who use fear, disinformation, and vitriol to spread their anti-gun agenda, and more pointedly, the problem lies with those who voted these people into office, but I doubt the voters are the kinds of people who would enjoy the outdoors anyways, and probably couldn't point out a BPS logo if their life depended on it...
After lots of thought, i've come to realize if BPS doesn't want my money, I don't want to give it to them. I've already spent quite a load of cash at their nearest competitor to gear up for this years bow season, so hey, it's their loss.
They chose to cave in to Chicago gun-hating politics, and that's fine. Stupidity is not illegal in this country...though sometimes I wish it were. My over all directive now is to get as many people as possible to know what BPS is doing...if they choose not to go back, great, mission accomplished...if they continue to still shop there, oh well...at least they know (and ill remember who they were
Though, it is disheartening, when you consider had BPS actually stood up to the freedom hating politicians in Chicago, they actually could have made one hell of a name for themselves. Now, people like me, only look at them as feeble-minded and meek, caving in at any sign of opposition.
Tuck tail and run, BPS...Cabelas was better any ways.
