    Hello and thanks. Don't worry. I won't now and I'll do my best to see that others I know don't, either.

    Best.

    Real nice! I had an order placed with the factory but canceled it when I heard of this.
    Coopers are a hard sell in my area and this won't help any.
    I find it funny and ironic that they support a candidate that if he had his way they'd be out of business.


    I think maybe he sees an Obama presidency as inevitable and is hoping to throw his master a bone so he and his company are looked upon favorably.
    That's pretty WEAK and cowardly.

    They'll never get a dime from me as long as I live. Thank you. Good, makes my high-end rifles choices much simpler. :)

    Make sure you let them know how you feel.

    Who cares? McCain is no pro-gunner that's for sure. You guys have been watching too many NRA commercials.

    I really think he has lost his mind. How can anyone other than an extreme leftist think that the Republican party has moved too far to the right?

    Sure, I'll bite. Neither is he proactively anti-gun like the other one.

    RugerFan...

    As a state senator in Illinois, Obama has supported some of the most draconian gun laws imagineable. Ban on ALL concealed carry, ban on all centerfire rifle ammunition, ban on all semi-automatics. The revolvers will be next. Then the rimfires, if they had their way. The only question is whether or not they have the political traction to get it done. I suspect they will tie it to their healthcare bill, as a 'safety' measure.

    I say we picket him at the next SHOT show.

    And keep spreading the word -- don't buy Cooper.

    You guys are so dramatic. As president the *only* thing that Obama could possibly do, or not do, is veto an AWB that congress passes. Yes Obama will sign this bill, we don't know for sure if McCain will sign the bill. Other than that there is nothing that will happen with gun control. Vote how you want, I personally give McCain the edge in gun control, but I'm looking at a much much bigger picture this election year.

    He voted against the AWB and will probably do so again shortly.

    You wanna talk about federal judge selection in a possible Obama presidency?

    If McCain has his way things will stay the same, if Obama has his way we won't have much to talk about.

    Are you kidding? Wrong does not even begin to describe that sentence. This election is for all the marbles.

    We came within ONE vote, in a 5-4 decision, of not having ANY right to keep and bear arms, AT ALL, in US v. Heller. 4 SCOTUS justices, 3 of whom were Dem appointees (2 Clinton appointees) could not read the plain English text of the 2nd amendment. The next POTUS will likely appoint 1-2 justices if he's a one-termer, and 2-3 justices who are retiring if he's a two-termer, not to mention dozens of other federal judges who decide gun rights cases. We go from having a right (barely) to not having a right at all with Obama appointees - there is simply no question about that fact. This has ZERO to do with legislative and executive politics and 100% to do with SCOTUS and other judicial appointments.

    Nah, Presidents don't pick Supreme Court Judges or anything like that. There's no danger, nothing to see here, move along.

    Perhaps we could start a fund to send pickets to the next SHOT show. I nominate Oleg as our treasurer.

    Yep, yep, yep. You know what happens when you assume most people know this?
    I would think posters to/on a firearms forum would be a little more "up" on things.
    Ass-u-me.
    My bad.

    The next thing we need to do is contact all the gun magazines and tell them to get with the program -- no more Cooper articles.

    not only the supreme court picks, but also the president appoints people to the BATFE and basically runs it. he writes executive orders as well.


    something's fishy about this though. surely cooper knew he would get zumboed when word of this got out. why would he let USAToday do an article on him like that?

    Who cares? My 2nd amendment rights are important to me, so I for one care a lot. We can all do as we like with our one vote. While I'm no fan of McCain, I'll take my chances with him and Palin, esp. in light of my other option on the table.

    I'm not being dramatic at all, I just don't think Obama in the white house will do anything good for my second amendment rights(nor my wallet, but that is another issue.) As a gun owner and hunter if you think he's the man, then by all means vote for him.

    As far as Cooper, I guess it's good to stand up for what you believe, but if he is still in business in a year I'd be surprised. Ruger or S&W selling us out is bad enough, but a small specialty firm like cooper will not weather the storm as well in my opinion.

    This is, quite frankly, the stupidest thing I've read all week.

    McCain certainly may not be as pro-gun as we'd like, but to try and make the claim that he's just as bad as Obama is hyperbole that bears practically no resemblance to reality in any way, shape, or form.

    Might I suggest that you take a few minutes of time to go to Google and run a few searches to compare and contrast the legislation and rhetoric employed by both candidates before they started running for president?
