Remington will never join the cause now that they got this big contract
Did you ever believe that any part of Freedom Group would stand on the side of the people???

Given enough pressure Smith&Wesson, Mossberg, and Springfield might join the fight.
IMO Glock, SigSauer, and ANY part of Freedom Group will never join.

I say stop wasting time fighting among ourselves and instead stop buying Hollywood movies . Instead, buy gun videos on DVD from Paladin Press, Pantaeo Productions, Guns and Ammo, Personal Defense T.V., Blackhawk !, Shooting USA etc.

Tell your wives to stop buying womens' magazines because they are all anti-gun . Buy some good books such as Levin's Liberty and Tyranny instead .

It is one thing to boycott anti-gun companies . It is another to boycott gun companies for simply refusing to join in an effort .
I think our efforts should be directed against our enemies .

They make them, we buy them. It is called coersion for the greater good. In this case it is Freedom. Supplying goods and services to an enemy will only embolden their cause, there comes a time to choose sides.

So... you'd be happy with a Glock that held only 7 rounds while LEO's get to walk around carrying 17 rounds?

Hmm...

Like Wing Said... Sometimes you gotta pick a side.

That is an unfair question.

The issue is one of strategy. The proper question is, " Do we use our resources to punish gun makers for selling to an oppressive government or do we use those resources to punish the extremists who actually want to confiscate our guns " ?
I say, " Pick your battles " . Selling to governments is not as bad as donating to Bloomberg's gang or banning gun advertising, is it ?

Instead : Why not boycott some anti-gun company for doing business with the enemy ?

Simple answer... EFFECTIVENESS!

Yes... There are many companies who support our enemies but NONE of them rely on gun owners for 75% to 100% of there sales.

Gun manufacturers are the most "at risk" for this type of activity because government sales make up so little of there total production.

We, the American consumer, through our support of gun products, drive all of the innovation in the marketplace. Our dollars are the reason we have hundreds of manufacturers and thousands of products to choose from... THEREFORE... we have every right to deny our money to companies who do not support us by cutting of government sales and spending it with there competitors who do.

Effective

Tack

This whole subject is getting extreme and even a little childish.

The name calling directed at anyone who disagrees with flawed premise is getting old as well.

I traded my Glock 17 which is the only product I owned from any of those companies in for a para ordinance 1911. Sell off your guns of the manufacturers creating low demand for new ones.
