    S&W digs in!

    A company with a spine? Heck yeah. I dig it! Good for them.


    "Smith & Wesson, a U.S. based leader in firearm manufacturing and design, today announced that the Company will not attend nor will it support or participate in the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
    The announcement comes after the decision of show management company, Reed Exhibitions, to prohibit the display of modern sporting rifles in this year’s event."
    "James Debney, President and CEO of Smith & Wesson, said, “”As a market leader in the firearm industry and an iconic brand that spans 160 years of American history, we believe it is important to make our position perfectly clear: We support the Second Amendment and the rights of our law-abiding customers to purchase these and all legal firearms.
    Therefore, we are unable to support any organization or event that prohibits legal firearms, or otherwise restricts a citizen’s lawful and constitutional rights."

    I only hit the "Like" button because there isn't a "Hells YEAH!" button.
    Good on S&W...

    I might have to peruse the S&W selections for another handgun to show my support of them.

    This is what it's going to take to beat this.

    Lots of citizens, towns, counties, states,
    and private companies saying "HELL NO".

    Be kind of cool to see S&W tell Massachusettes
    "Hey guys, we're moving!".

    Thats Great but I still want to see the Gun Manufacturers pack up and move south to a state more friendly to the 2nd Amendment and Sportsmen. That will start getting their attention.
    Character and Ethics count, don't leave home without them. Or your CCW!
