Top Online Gun Retailer Suspends Sales of Firearms: “Effective Immediately”

Poster's note: If you haven't already purchased something for your protection, I would not wait much longer. To depend on the State to protect you, especially in these troubling times where police departments are going broke, is reckless gamble. A right withers unless it is exercised. BTW, here is another retailer who hasn't folded under the pressure. I don't have any affiliation with them other than supporting them occasionally.

Online retailer Cheaper Than Dirt!, one of the world’s largest sporting goods stores and a top online gun distributor, has suspended sales of firearms as of Tuesday.

According to an alert posted on its Facebook and Twitter accounts, the “temporary” suspension is effective immediately as the company reviews its policies and promotions related to online gun sales.

Cheaper Than Dirt! has temporarily suspended online sales of firearms. "As a long time supporter of the Second Amendment, Cheaper Than Dirt! will continue to promote the safe and responsible use of firearms by law abiding customers. During this temporary suspension, we will review our policies and promotions."

In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings gun control advocates and politicians on both sides of the aisle have called for bans on the sale, transfer, importation and possession of semi-automatic rifles. One of the most outspoken anti-gun legislation supporters, Mayor Bloomberg of New York, pleaded with President Obama to take executive action that would essentially nullify the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

I wonder if what they are

I wonder if what they are doing is temporarily suspending sales while they review their potential liabilities related to gun sales or if they are just trying to make a political statement after the school shooting. My guess is that they are considering their liabilities.
