After reading this I thought I would see if I could make a purchase.

The following is the email I sent to Bass

While at a shooting match near Chicago I tried to purchase ammo - - - I was denied due to your company policy - - - after researching your policy I found it is cow towing to the Chicago politicians and if you have your corporate legal team investigate it is not "Following State Law"

As long as this policy is on the books please remove me from your email list and I will take my business elseware ( I went to WalMart and purchased the ammo I needed )

Signed gladly, inclusive of a scathing review of their actions from one dealer to another.

Well, it's been 10 hours since going live with the petition, and we're up to 20 good signatures

That's actually not bad, considering most people were asleep when I posted this (was about 2:30 a.m. cst) so im going to cut it in half and say 20 signatures in 5 hours.

I hope it'll grow, a lot more, only 980 signatures to go

Ive signed up at several forums online, but unfortunately, every damn one of them requires administrator approval, LOL!

Though I don't blame them, lots of gun nuts out there, gotta control it to an extent!
