Gander Mountain Backs Away From NRA Event for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
Gander Mountain withdrew last week from two National Rifle Association (NRA) events that partially focused on supporting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in next month's recall election. Gander Mountain had planned to host workshops in connection with the meetings at its stores in Rothschild and Eau Claire, WAOW-TV reported. When the company withdrew, the NRA moved the meetings to other locations. Gander Mountain, which sells firearms and other hunting gear, said it has been a longtime supporter of the NRA and has partnered with the organization many times before. But the company said it recently decided to stay away from political events.
