    i dont know if anyone have been following the internal strife of hunters and shooters this weekend, but it has been nasty.

    on Jim Zumbo's blog on at outdoorlife.com, he went on a rampage of the use of evil black rifles (AR-15's) and their use in hunting environments.

    he called them terrorists rifles that have no place in the woods and fields and called for states to BAN their use in hunting.

    AR15.com got involved..in a grass roots email campaign..within hours the CEO of Remington ( one of the blogsite sponsers and a corporate sponsor of Zumbo) was posting on the board..

    today..
    Remington dropped him as a sponsor..
    Cabelas is looking in the legalities of their dropping his sponsorship..
    Outdoor Life has pulled the blog..

    let there be NO DISTINCTION between a good rifle and a bad one.

    within hours of his blog..
    the Brady Campaign had his words as a gun control poster boy..

    let this be a lession to all those involved in the hunting industry..

    He is an idiot with a big mouth that just ruined his livelihood. However, I think Outdoor Life is the one ultimately responsible, as they allowed him to use their forum to publish the comments and then left them up, defending his 'right' to do so. I'm blackballing them.....Zumbo already dug his own hole.:l

    He just hurt us worse than anyone ever has. The brady's are already using his comments on their forums and website.
