Well said. These folks are putting their business' existence on the line because they believe what they believe. What I believe. That's an integrity that I respect.GUTNTAG, LLC WITHDRAWS FROM EASTERN SPORTS SHOW DUE TO BAN OF ASSAULT AND TACTICAL WEAPONSGUTNTAG, LLC, announces its official withdraw from the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show (ESOS). Recently, Reed Exhibitions, veteran organizer of the ESOS, announced an assault and tactical weapons ban to be implemented at the largest show of its kind in the United States.
We have made the costly decision to withdraw because it is the right thing to do. We are a young company that relies on this one venue to create our operating capital for the year; however we cannot support uninformed businesses caving to political pressures caused by broadly politicized events. We proudly support the 2nd Amendment in the capacity for which it was intended; the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. Our freedom to do so was not for hunting or competition shooting, but protection for law abiding citizens.
In the words of Thomas Jefferson, “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Friends, if we continue to give in inch-by-inch, we will find ourselves with no protection and a tyrannical government.
I respect it enough to order some of their seasonings. I like doing business with people I like. If you do, too, they have a 2nd Amendment Special. Heh.
The down side: shipping is actually more than their product. The up side: they make money without supporting those Quislings at the ESOS. That's worth paying cash money for. I'll post a review once their rub gets delivered.
