If you do, you might want to reconsider that. The owner is channeling none other than Bill Ruger himself.

Really, Mr. Rinkor? The last I checked, the Second Amendment wasn’t about need–or hunting, or plinking or any of the rest of it. It was meant to be the reset button on these united States. As Judge Alex Kozinski put it in Silveira vs. Lockyer:
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed—where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
Boys and girls, we are in a fight, and it’s going to be a down and dirty one. People like this are going to be popping up from all over, like toadstools after a rain. It’s going to be up to all of us to oppose them at every turn, every time we find them. You aren’t going to be able to mutter “asshat” under your breath and go on about your business. You’re going to have to be involved in this every day.
You’ll miss some. I watch the Charlotte Pravda as closely as I can, and I missed this until I saw it mentioned in yet another of their hit pieces. We’re all going to have to keep at it just as hard as we can until we stuff this thing back in its box were it belongs.
For your convenience, you can reach these folks at Tactical Arms Manufacturer, Inc. on the web or on Facebook. As you will see on their Facebook page, they backed up in a hurry early on and have now went silent. That doesn’t mean that we back off, it means we go into pursuit mode. Everyone needs to fully understand the nature of this fight we’re in–including Mr. Rinkor. And I think he needs to understand it good and hard.
I am not buying their BS. Looking at their web site, it appears likely to me that this company jumped into the AR market after His Obamaness’s last “open mouth, insert foot” episode on gun control, I would assume because Mr. Rinkor figured he could make a fast buck. When the heat came on this time, law-abiding firearms owners can go under the bus, because he’s made his money. I can’t prove any of this, but it just smells that way.
Companies like this don’t deserve our business or our support. We should not only deprive them of both, but publicize their actions against us. There are too many good manufacturers out there who support gun owners, not only by making the products we buy but by sponsoring events and teams and donating to groups like the NRA, to need companies like this.
Mr. Rinkor, your NRA recruiter badge and NRA-ILA banners don’t sway me. You’re just another in a long line of people who thought they could make a buck off of gun owners and then go on to the next market. Not happening.
