HS PRECISION DIGS IN ITS HEELS
In spite of an avalanche of e-mails, HS Precision, (the rifle and stock maker that promoted its products with a glowing endorsement from hired killer Lon Horiuchi) has decided to ignore gun owners who expressed outrage at this bit of marketing insanity. (The company was even mocked by Tom Gresham of GunTalk last Sunday.)
But in spite of HS’s decision to ignore gun owners (in order to placate their big government customers) your efforts have not been unsuccessful. AR15.com reports a response they received from Remington Arms, a regular customer of HS.
While we have not been able to see the original e-mail at this time,or prove its authenticity,a review of Remington’s website did indicate that they no longer have any mention of HS Precision there, as was noted in the reported e-mail.
(Except for, apparently here and here. Guess they missed a few.)
(Questions about the authenticity of the e-mail seem to have been answered.)
But now is not the time to let HS off the hook. What does Remington mean when it says HS should “reverse course?” They won’t use a hired killer to endorse their products in the future? Big deal.
Anyone distributing their products needs to hear from gun owners.
Any business relationship with HS is an endorsement of their outrageous policies and callous disregard for innocent human life.
A list of their hunting distributors can be seen here.
A list of their international distributors can be seen here.
A list of their “tactical” distributors can be seen here.
A weird page with satin gloves and pearls,(which thanks to Lon Horiuchi, Vicky Weaver will never get the chance to wear) can be found here.
If you patronize any of these businesses, they need to know that you are disgusted that they would be promoting products that are hawked by a sniper who shot an unarmed woman through the head, while she held her infant daughter.
It has been reliably reported to us that HS Precision considers the people who have contacted them to be “kooks” and “fringe element.” Apparently Remington does not share the same disdain for their customers.
We strongly believe that a company that is far more interested in the approval of government agencies than American gun owners is a danger to all of us.
Companies like HS put profits before principles. They are acting as agents for government agencies that seek to attack gun owners, even if it means gunning them down. As long as HS remains in business, the message is clear; gun owners are expendable, gun hating federal agencies will continue to be accommodated.
Since HS has no interest in addressing the outrage of gun owners (who rightfully consider a hired killer to be a poor spokesman for a firearms manufacturer) we think it’s time to turn our attention to their business partners. We hope you do too.
