Although I'm a hunter, I support the adoption of gun control measures including an immediate ban on the sale of assault rifles.

It does not appear this will occur through legislative action. However, as consumers we can make a difference by not patronizing local stores, such as Murdoch's and Cabela's, that continue to sell assault rifles even though these guns have been used in many of the mass shootings. These stores appear to care little about the loss of life but only are concerned about a reduction in resale sales.
