” Wal-Mart’s envoy to the White House’s gun violence task force will meet with Attorney General Eric Holder, not the group’s leader Vice President Joe Biden, an administration official said Thursday.
Wal-Mart is one of ten retailers meeting with Holder Thursday, the Justice Department said. Other stores expected to be represented at the 3:15 p.m. ET meeting include Dick’s Sporting Goods and Bass Pro Shops.
Biden is scheduled to meet with gun owners and gun rights groups Thursday, including the National Rifle Association. Later in the day he’ll sit down with representatives of the entertainment and video game industries.
The NRA is sending James J. Baker, the head of its federal relations office, to meet with the vice president and other administration officials who comprise the panel, which is charged with developing proposals to stem gun violence. Those measures will be presented the President Barack Obama upon the conclusion of the meetings.”

We’d be very sorry if we have to cease doing business with Cabelas . Gander Mountain and Bass Pro Shops would be missed as well . But make no mistake , we will vote with our pocketbooks . Any business that chooses to enjoy and profit by some of the Constitutional rights of this country yet will be bullied into abandoning the one most precious to a large portion of it’s customer base should not be surprised when they face a sudden downturn in their bottom line .
Remember , all this political theater is an attempt to manufacture a crisis where none exists in the interest of further a political agenda . Banning gun-ownership in the US .
