All hang together or all hang separately. Some Fudds just don't get it. They think that if all those tacticool guys would just go away the antis would leave them alone. Wrong, they are on the same list, just farther down.

I did, and I signed it with my full name. It was a tough decision, as I know him personally and greatly enjoyed being an active member & business donor. HH

Many clubs around here do not allow military style (AR or AK) rifles to be used. I have two leases. The landowners specifically specified in writing that they did not want military assault looking weapons on their property.
I agree with them. I do not allow them on my land for hurting Such rifles have no place in the hunting world.

I agree 100%, but Mr. Zumbo said they had no place anywhere, period. HH

I really hope that his "poor choice of words" keeps following him and keeps biting him in the rump.

I never used anything else in my hunting for years.

Now that I hunt men less often and wild game more often I've actually bought a bolt action rifle with wood funiture.

BTW, I'd never hunt on land if the landowner started telling me what hardware I could use. Far too much good land to hunt that doesn't have some commie wannabe giving out a dress code.

Yup, right here among us. It's all fun and games until they come for your fancy "high powered sniper rifles". Hope there's enough of you left.

Gee, I guess all that hunting I did, (when I could afford only one rifle) with my M-1 didn't count, what with it being a military semi-auto, with a bayonet lug no less.

Good Lord... this is old news and any outrage now about Zumbo is misplaced. He got religion and learned from his misguided opinion. Uncle Ted had a come to Jesus meeting with Zumbo and set his mind straight. Zumbo now sits on the board of the 2d Amendment Foundation. Give it a rest. He's on our side morons....

From Wikipedia:

"Many firearms industry lobbyists were outraged that Zumbo was publicly demanding an outright ban on a type of popular sporting rifle for reasons of "personal bias".[3] In response to the flood of threatened boycotts, Remington Arms' CEO Tommy Millner fired Zumbo as a spokesman on February 19,[4] The Outdoor Channel announced that Zumbo programming would be on a temporary hiatus, but did not sever their affiliations with Zumbo. His online blog was discontinued "for the time being" by Outdoor Life on February 19.[5] Outdoor Life subsequently dropped him completely, stating on its webpage that Zumbo would no longer be contributing to the publication once the last of his columns already to press had been printed. Gerber Knives and Mossy Oak severed all of their business dealings with Zumbo as well, as did a majority of his other sponsors.

Outdoor columnist Dennis Anderson wrote in 2007 that "Zumbo's comments lent voice to what many hunters believe, namely that assault-style weapons are the black sheep of guns and do nothing to engender hunters and shooters to the general public."[6]
Aftermath

The speed with which calls for Zumbo's termination were acted on by his sponsors and employers (initial responses from sponsors occurred within a 36-hour period after he posted the first of two blog entries on the topic) were seen by many participants as evidence of the power of the Internet and of the "new media," including the "blogosphere," to influence and shape sociopolitical events. The New York Times published an editorial March 3, 2007 criticizing the destruction of Zumbo's career as overkill and avoidance of healthy debate.[7] Two weeks after the blog appeared Mr. Zumbo was invited by NRA board member Ted Nugent to an "education" session at Nugent's Texas ranch. Jim was lectured on the sporting uses of AR type rifles by Ted and two Texas outdoor writers.[8]

On March 20, a month after Zumbo's column was published, gun control advocate Senator Carl Levin praised Zumbo for "his forthrightness, his honesty and his courage," calling the response to his comments "swift and callous," in a speech that supported the renewal of the Assault Weapons Ban.[9] Zumbo in turn published An Open Letter to the United States Senate, saying his statements had been misrepresented, and attacking Levin's support of gun control legislation as an attack on the Second Amendment.[10]
Return to Television

According to Jim Zumbo's website, fellow hunter Ted Nugent came to Zumbo's rescue. After the blog incident, Zumbo flew to Nugent's ranch in Texas to learn about the so-called black rifles. Nugent wanted to use Zumbo's ignorance as an example of an avid hunter who was unaware of the popularity and uses of these firearms. Zumbo went on to work with the Second Amendment Foundation.

On July 3, 2007 Zumbo's TV show went back on the air, and some sponsors began coming back. Over the last few years Zumbo has been focusing on wounded soldiers who suffered severe injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan, taking them on all-expense paid hunting trips, with more planned in the future.

In August 2008, Zumbo was appointed as national spokesman for the Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund, which is a branch of the Paralyzed Veterans of America."

You DO realize that the AR is by far the most used riffle in predator hunting right? In fact, when I go hunting and I'm not carrying my bow I often grab my AR.

So the excuse is that he was "uneducated" about the uses of a particular rifle?
So what happens the next time he takes a position on an issue that he is uneducated about?

If your opinion on guns is meaningless, why do you post on those topics here?

So, why are you canceling your membership if you agree that semi-autos have no place in the hunting fields? Kind of a contradiction, don't you think?
