Canadian Tire: Stop selling products made by guns manufacturer Vista Outdoor

As customers of Canadian Tire, we call on you to immediately stop the sale of all Vista Outdoor brands.

Why is this important?

Vista Outdoor is a United States based corporation that owns Savage Arms - one of the largest producers of semi-automatic weapons in the country. [1] They're heavily involved in the gun lobby, and have ties to the National Rifle Association (NRA). [2]

Canadian Tire is currently supporting Vista Outdoors by stocking products from their other brands like -- Raskullz, Bushnell, Weaver, Simmons, Tasco, Butler Creek. [3]

In light of the ongoing mass shootings south of the border, many companies are withdrawing their support from manufacturers of assault type weapons. Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC) has just stopped orders for all products from Vista. [4] We call on Canadian Tire to follow suit.

Reasons for signing

  • This is stupid. I don’t tell you what you can can’t have so leave law abiding gun owners alone.
  • Common people you are smarter than this, start addressing the criminal problem and stop blaming an in adamant object. You’ve been brainwashed by the media to believe that firearms magically load themselves, aim and then shoot someone.... no, someone makes decision to kill another person and they find a way to do it. If they didn’t have a firearm then they would find something else.
  • I've signed this petition several times now. I don't even own fire arms and I know that this is being blown out of proportion. The sensitivity of the liberal party is making me ashamed to be a part of it. Stop being a keyboard warrior to validate you feeling good about doing nothing. It's tragic that we as canadians are panicked over guns, yet everyone concerned about them wouldn't stop to help a person in need in real life. Priorities are so messed up.
