Remington to Sever Sponsorship Ties with Jim Zumbo

As mentioned on The War on Guns, Shooting the Messenger and others.

Remington to Sever Sponsorship Ties with Jim Zumbo

Madison, North Carolina – As a result of comments made by Mr. Jim Zumbo in recent postings on his blog site, Remington Arms Company, Inc., has severed all sponsorship ties with Mr. Zumbo effective immediately. While Mr. Zumbo is entitled to his opinions and has the constitutional right to freely express those opinions, these comments are solely his, and do not reflect the views of Remington.

“Remington has spent tens of millions of dollars defending our Second Amendment rights to privately own and possess firearms and we will continue to vigorously fight to protect these rights,” commented Tommy Millner, Remington’s CEO and President. “As hunters and shooters of all interest levels, we should strive to utilize this unfortunate occurrence to unite as a whole in support of our Second Amendment rights.”

We regret having to terminate our long-standing relationship with Mr. Zumbo, who is a well-respected writer and life-long hunter.
I applaud Remington for stepping up to the plate and taking very quick action concerning this issue. The damage caused by Jim Zumbo to our RKBA is far from over.

We are often quick to call for boycotts of companies that support ideas and programs contrary to our beliefs. Now it is time to support a company for doing the right thing. It is time to go buy yourself a Remington.

May I recommend the following:

Model 870 Tac 2 and 3


Model 700 XCR

If neither of those tickle your fancy, it is okay because there is still time to take advantage of Remington's 2007 Spring Promotion

Two items by Remington that you will always find in my range bag are Rem Oil Wipes and Remington ELEY .22 ammo.

Give Remington your support, let them know you appreciate their stand on this issue.

Got it, got it, got it, got it...

But I'm now looking for a new Remington toy.

Tomorrow we begin posting the whole sordid affair at various ranges and gun shops in the area, with the hope that a positive rebound gives Remington one helluva boost.

Cross us and pay the price. Stand with us and you've a friend for life.

I'm waiting for Zumbo to show up in wikipeida. Maybe under career limiting move, or "Zumbo" a verb "to inundate with grassroots support or oppositions"
