    Default Fuddery at AR-15 manufacturer Tactical Arms

    In today's Herald:

    “Our sole business being the assault rifle, it is a concern that it will literally put us out of business,” said Ken Rinkor, vice president of Tactical Arms Manufacturer Inc. in Huntersville, N.C. “That is not for us to determine. If the general public decides to vote the way of banning assault rifles, then they can certainly do so, and we don’t have an opinion on how it will affect us.”

    ...

    While he feared a ban on rifles, Rinkor supported calls for a ban on sales to the public of high-capacity magazines, which may be used on his AR-15’s or those made by other manufacturers.

    “Frankly, I think there’s no need for anybody to have such … magazines, 20 or 30 rounds. It makes no sense at all to have that large of a magazine, even for personal protection,” he said.

    The concept of a 10 round limit first gained steam back when Bill Ruger proposed such a ban as a way to make sure that any legislation spared his company's products.

    what i wonder is, is this what he really believes? Or is he trying to save his company. I wonder if he believes that if they ban "high capacity" mags that they will leave the AR alone.

    Wow, I don't even know what to say here! It is these f**ks that are doing more harm to us than even the antis who always spout the same rhetoric. People are used to hearing their crap, so it is just business as usual, but when you see arms manufacturers "outing themselves" by making statements such as this, it sends a HUGE message to the ignorant general public that they will take seriously. I think this particular statement needs to be circulated on all enthusiest sites, facebook, etc. to get the message out so that WE put him out of business - not the AWB! It makes me sick to think that anyone who cares about our freedoms would ever spend a nickle with his company again!

    I'm sure this Chicago-mafia administration is doing some "arm twisting" with regards to manufacturer's licenses (in this case) and FFL licenses for the sporting goods chains that are "suddenly" dropping the AR rifles from their inventory. There's no other rational way to look at this scenario, as a business decision, it makes no sense.

    Gee, with friends like these, who needs enemies? Hopefully he just Zumboed himself, although I suspect the tinfoilers will still buy his product with all the panic going on.

    Why is he calling it an "assault weapon" surely someone in his position would know the difference, but I digress.
