ISRA Special Alert - Give A Pat On The Back To Designers of I-55 Gun Sign*


As you may have heard, the gun grabbers are all up in arms over an outdoor sign
off of Interstate 55 advertising Slidefire gun stocks. *The grabbers are aghast that a picture of an AR-15 would appear in plain view*of "children."* In response, the gun haters have launched an attack on the owner of the billboard, Lamar Advertising, and Slidefire.*
*
As gun owners, we need to*those who support us. *Therefore, as a show of support, please send e-mails to Lamar Advertising at the following address:
*
rrickert@lamar.com
*
In the "Subject Line" please say: "Love your Slidefire sign on I-55"* Please mention in the body of your message that you heard about the sign from the ISRA.
*
Also contact Slidefire at:
*
customerservice@slidefire.com
*
Use the subject line:* "Love your sign on I-55."* Tell Slidefire that you support their efforts to "normalize" lawful firearm ownership by way of the I-55 sign. *Be sure to tell them you learned about the sign from the ISRA.*
*
Be sure to pass this alert on to all your gun owning friends and family members.
*
Please post this alert to any and all Internet blogs or bulletin boards to which you belong.*


Here's a news story on it.

My email to Mr. Wall...

Mr. Wall

I am a NRA Certified Instructor, I would be happy to teach you the NRA Basic Rifle class for free. Clearly you need to increase your knowledge of firearms. The billboard does not have a picture of an assault rifle but rather a semi-automatic sporting rifle. There are significant differences between the two, that are missed by the untrained and uneducated.

Sincerely,
Ron Lemke

Slidefire is a gimmick product not worth standing up for. I applaud the OP for being watchful, but I can't with a straight face defend this monkey business as essential to my gun rights. They are not persecuted, mind it. It is a storm in a cup.

For what it's worth, the story went National. It's in the Washington Post, Huffington, and many others. It may be a gimmick, but it's a right.

I dig. You know I've had this idea of throwing them a decoy target every year or two. So they stay busy and sail from one victory to another.

(Edit. Them means the anti 2A)

Slidefire, IMHO, is a legal sidetrack, or loophole, at best,

and detrimental to your internals, at worst. I agree with

Mercator.

Gee, I always thought if I didn't like a slide fire, I just wouldn't buy one. Sure looks like some folks here think, because they don't like it, then no one should have it.

I stand with McCool . . . and those that stand with us. You others are just sissy pants.

(I had a picture, but I just had to delete it. I just could'nt do it.)

While I agree with your opinion of the product being advertised. The particular issue I have is again the misrepresentation of what is a rifle.
