You're the next contestant on "My Big Mouth Got Me Fired!"
Of course, USAToday, anti-freedom bunch that they are, have to quote another anti-freedom group, the "American Hunters and Shooters Association", who decries the terrible treatment of a guy who has made his money off people who were exercising their civil right to own a firearm (and expensive ones at that):
It's a really McCarthyism at its worst," said Bob Ricker, executive director of the American Hunters and Shooters Association.
Go tell it to Jim Zumbo, you lying sack of feces. He pulled the same stunt, and paid the same price. Stupidity has consequences. Gun owners are tired of being treated like fifth class citizens simply because they choose to exercise their rights. We aren't in any mood to take this sort of thing lying down any longer.
We've learned that the only way we win is to fight back with every tool at our disposal. George HW Bush was first, as we withheld our votes for his perfidity. Smith and Wesson was second, as we withheld our business, Zumbo was third, as we lost our temper. Cooper Firearms is fourth--and you note it didn't take much pressure at all. (They're learning.)
And we won't even give the asshat Democrat governor of Montana's silly comments the courtesy of a quote. What the governor says is unimportant, and we do not hear his words.
However, we are a forgiving bunch. After some time in sackcloth and ashes, and several mea culpas, Jim Zumbo has been rehabilitated within the gun culture, at least to a large extent.
So Dan, where's your apology? We're waiting...with the sackcloth and ashes. Or a hair shirt, if you prefer.
