A long time ago I had a different hobby. It was Warhammer Fantasy and I played the Dwarf Kingdom. GW Dwarves are a surley lot and their High King is transported around on a special throne. This throne was made of a book, the Book of Grudges.
This is my Book of Grudges.
Over the past year of building my AR pistol, I have run into several companies that just did not want to take my money. Either they would say something stupid and I'd get into a 'FaceBook/Email Rumble' with them or they would have something negative on their website that I took issue with or else esposed some political belief outside of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms that I just could not support.
Today, that was Molon Labe Industries.
There is a graphic going around stating that the major mass murders of the 20th century were Liberals. They put this up on their site and I stated an objection to it. I made the statement that this is not the time to try and divide the RKBA community by Conservative/Liberal lines. Their supporters continued that screed and I ended up unliking their page after I suggested that they post their anti-Liberal bias directly on their website and that I had helped close to 40 AR's be started to be built via a group buy of stripped lowers.
I will not be buying any of their 2.5 million projected polymer magazines on the primary market. I may buy them on the secondary market but even that is in doubt.
They are now on my list of Traitors to RKBA. We need to bring all of the activists that feel that our civil rights include the Right to Keep and Bear Arms together to keep the pressure on Congress and our state assemblies or else the bullshit laws that will accomplish nothing but the loss of control to the GOP at all levels.
Any company that espouses a love of firearms ownership need to either be clear about not wanting Liberals to support them or any of their causes or else they need to play nice. We Liberal gun owners catch enough crap from our 'fellow' liberals that feel that we should die due to our enjoyment of firearms or wanting to have effective tools available for our self defense.
While the Conservatives are doing a great job of voicing their dissent, Democratic elected officials tend to listen more to their base. If we fall silent on this issue, there is a good sense that it would be seen as 'consent'. With no Liberal support, the war to retain our Right to Keep and Bear Arms will be a lost cause.
Just something for anti-Liberal Conservatives to consider.
You need us as much as we need you on this issue. Help us be able to be good example to others who have not considered the reasons why we are fighting for this issue and you will have our support.
