A small shareholder in Cabela’s Inc. wants the Nebraska-based outdoor gear retailer to stop selling certain high-capacity firearms, a move that continues to shine a spotlight on the highly politicized issue of gun control.
New York’s historic Trinity Wall Street church, which earlier raised a similar complaint at Wal-Mart Stores Inc., said it filed a shareholder resolution to be voted on at Cabela’s annual meeting next year.
The church wants Cabela’s directors to adopt a policy barring the private sale of firearms that can fire more than eight rounds without reloading.
Cabela’s is based in Sidney, Neb. It specializes in fishing and hunting gear, and other outdoors and sports products.
