But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. ~Matthew 6:33

Water Bottles And Bicycle Helmets Swept Up In Anti-Gun Agenda

Posted: 2018-03-03

[EVNN Editor: so what exactly IS an "Assault Style Rifle"? How about an assault style baseball bat? Or an assault style hammer? Or perhaps an assault style water bottle? Or an assault style bike helmet? Well, you could throw an assault style bottle of water at someone and hurt them; especially if it were frozen; and if you hit someone with a bike helmet would that be assault style?

By GENE JOHNSON, Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) — Public pressure against companies connected to the gun industry following last month's school shooting in Florida has hit an unlikely target: REI, the outdoors co-op better known for its public lands advocacy, liberal return policy and annual dividend for customers.

The Seattle-based retailer, which doesn't sell guns, announced late Thursday that it will at least temporarily stop ordering ski goggles, water bottles, bike helmets and other products from some popular brands — including CamelBak, Giro and Bolle — because their parent company, Vista Outdoor, also makes ammunition and assault-style rifles. The decision came a few hours after REI's Canadian counterpart, Mountain Equipment Co-op, took a similar step.
