Mountain Equipment Co-op, which has 22 locations in Canada, has yielded to a campaign to drop products from Vista Outdoor.  Vista Outdoor manufactures sports equipment, but is also involved in manufacturing semi-automatic weapons.

Mountain Equipment Co-op says it will stop selling products from Vista Outdoor, bowing to pressure to distance itself from the sports and recreation company, which also makes guns and ammunition, after last month's school shooting in Florida.
