    based on what we know about this guy, it is likely he resigned because he did not like having to take the stance that Glock likely wanted him to take.

    That is a good start. When are they going to fire the guy who thought up the bright idea of the .45 short (.45 Glock)? :neener:

    Not the article, Sven. Tom Gresham was just passing along a rumor.

    Since he'll probaby stick around Glock as a "consultant" it doesn't look like he'll have anymore on camera interviews but do all his damage behind the scenes...out of sight, out of mind?

    Being a CONsultant means he'll work half as long for twice the pay.

    Ok, the article said nothing about why he resigned. Or what is going to be done in the future. How is this a good start?

    To me, it reads like he took a bullet for the company. I doubt there's nothing new going on at GLock as a result of this situation. Just move on to the next 'fire.' :fire:

    It's possible he will stick around to continue to fight the frivolous liability suits, but will no longer have any role in setting policy or speaking for the company. It seems like that would be a win-win for Glock, since he's apparently a talented lawyer but a terrible public spokesman.

    Be as cynical as you want. We got pissed, we made calls and wrote letters, the guy resigned. A message was sent here. And someone heard it loud and clear. Sell us out and sell your last handgun. :neener:

    What are you going to do for your next trick? Try to put a gun company out of business?

    Oh wait, you did try that, but it did not work for some reason...
    How about boycotting gun stores, or gun shows, that won't let you carry your CCW's?

    Yeah, this latest bit sure is something to be proud of though...

    Roger that. I boycott a local range that was built with my tax dollars and won't let me carry.

    A range that won't let you carry...

    I had to think about that three or four times. It still makes no sense at all. What do they think you're going to do? Everyone else has a loaded firearm actually out and in operation!

    A local range that won't let you carry? Well, carry anyway! As long as it's concealed, short of groping you, how are they going to know? I respect private property, but no one owns my own private property--me.

    My original point aside, you are missing the point again.

    Why give your business to a range, store, or gunshow that does not let you legally carry?
    Why should have to "put one over on them" and carry anyway?

    If every other store is expected to respect your right to carry, then gun stores, ranges, and gun shows damn well better respect it as well, or get treated the same as all the other stores that don't.
    That's the real problem, and why gun owners don't have a lot of credibilty, in my opinion. They just ignore what they don't want to see, and there is no consistency...

    Cool.

    Great.

    The man that told HUD & the feds to 'get stuffed' after S&W caved is resigning.

    Glory in your spark, folks.

    :uhoh:

    And he only seemingly told HUD where to go after S&W was stupid enough to go first. A blind man could have seen the instant consumer backlash that followed the announcement of S&W's "deal."

    IIRC, Glock Inc., was in those "negotiations" until the bitter end. It was more luck and timing than courage and skill that saw Glock dodge the bullet a few years ago. This time around they put the boycott gun to their own corporate head and talked about how useful to law enforcement it would be if they would just help the government pull the trigger.:rolleyes:

    Glock needs to smarten up about how NOT to treat half of their consumer base. Shuffling a deck of the politically obtuse isn't going to get it done.

    This guy just took the fall for a corporate decision. That's the way it works. Everything he said on '60 Minutes', and after , had the stamp of approval from his boss. Whether he believed in it or not.

    I don't know the guy. Never heard of him before this. But I know how corporate PR works. He couldn't open his mouth except to spout the company line, and keep the paychecks coming.

    The issue is, did he back what he said, personally. I have to say, I'd lean towards no. Why? Because he's rumored to be getting the 'consulting' deal. Can any of you spell 'hush money'?

    Glock is willing to shovel cash at this guy for not much in return, to keep his mouth shut. That's the way it's done, folks. BTDT. He can probably live with it because he knows enough of us won't be fooled for it to make any real difference. He can still do his lawyer gig.

    What reason do I have to think this? He got personally mad when spouting the line. Think about it. You have to take the heat for a corp. decision you don't really believe in. What happens. You get hacked off, because you have no out, except to walk. If you have done your homework, and know enough, then you'll get paid to shut up.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but until I see something different, I'm willing to give an otherwise unknown person the benefit of the doubt. I know how companies work, and this incident stinks like fish guts in the summer. Don't blame the messenger. JMHO.

    (Having taken the same walk, in a way, I can feel for the guy).

    I have it on what I consider to be good authority that Jannuzzo did not "leave" the company, but was fired. The reason was because Gaston's son-in-law, International Sales Manager Herbert Weikinger, made uncomplimentary remarks about Jannuzzo's fiance, who was also a Glock employee (she also got fired,) and Jannuzzo decked him for it!

    It's the last post (as of the time of this posting) in this thread. The post is by Dean Speir, posted on 2/21/03 at 13:35.

    Say what you will about Jannuzzo's work, but I can admire the man for having made a stand and defending his lady love's honor.
