I don't think it is. Springfield is a major employer in my hometown and I gladly will support anything they put their name on.

I'm not picking on Springfield, I feel that way about all of them. With the amount of glocks alone they sell in this country, you would think they would start producing them here. If that happened, how many jobs would that create?

So, just don't leave yourself vulnerable for that kind of an attack on your integrity.
basically another way of saying, speak softly and carry a biiiiig stick!!
