I think it’s ridiculous for REI to cow down under pressure for PC purposes. To no longer carry outdoor gear like Camelbak because it’s owned by another company that makes a rifles and has connections with the NRA is ludicrous. That’s a slippery slope you’re going down. Are you going to stop carrying Yeti products because of their ambassadors are hunters and rodeo stars. 

REI carries shot glasses. Isn’t that promoting alcohol consumption. Alcohol is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths every year!!!
