    Just got this email:

    I sent them a reply:

    If you write to Mr. Gilbert at wgilbert@cusa.canon.com, please keep to polite, practical suggestions. Utility and ethics would make better input than appeals to the Second Amendment guarantees.

    Kudos!!!
    I especially like the "morally neutral" comparrison to their equipment. BRILLIANT!
    Keep up the good work, and if I haven't said it lately, the best forum on the net!

    Maybe just me, but if I read between the lines it sorta appears that the handouts in TX may have been a sanctioned trial by the company . It would then give one the direction they were thinking of going , if they could get by with it ?

    More Public Relations double-no-speak. "Currently reviewing" means nothing has changed. "Currently reviewing" translates to hey, we're looking into this perceived black eye that the Canon Corp. has received, and if it's in our best interest (read: bottom line profits) we might be willing to change our policies, but don't hold your breathe!

    I see nothing concrete is this puppet's words, but nevertheless, I applaud your efforts.

    Peace and God bless, Wolfsong.

    Good stuff.

    I like the idea of a policy that says "No possession of illegal weapons and/or no unlawful use of weapons". You've got the symbolism that any law or regulation is about anyway, it has no more or less chance of stopping violence, EXCEPT that it doesn't prohibit lawful carry.

    Very nice letter Oleg. I feel however that it may possibly be pearls before swine. The wording of the rsponse from Canon was quite vague and noncommital. It reminded me very much of the "canned letters" I have recieved in the past as response from an elected official. Certainly no ascertainable position was to be determined and the most one could expect was an ongoing evaluation and reevaluation of company policy. Well duh...all companies evalutate and reevaluate their P&P manuals and handbooks on a frequent basis. I have to do that myself on a regular basis. Hopefully a brain cell or two was jump started at Canon and a rational response results. However experience tells me that while this is possible it is not probable. Very nicely done on your part never the less.
