    From Zumbo's blog site.

    "Due to the controversy surrounding Jim Zumbo’s recent postings, Outdoor Life has decided to discontinue the “Hunting With Zumbo” blog for the time being. Outdoor Life has always been, and will always be, a steadfast supporter of our Second Amendment rights, which do not make distinctions based on the looks of the firearms we choose to own, shoot and take hunting. Please direct any comments you have to OLletters@time4.com."

    Screw them. Zumbo wrote it, the editor APPROVED IT. One man has a opinion. When it is approved it is then corporate policy. Zumbo deserves to be fired. In my opinion shooters should boycott O L AND their sponsers.

    I would imagine server traffic congestion was a part of this decision.

    If this is run like most (if not all) blogs, there is no editor involved. You say what you want, when you want, hit the post button and the world can see it.

    Straight from your mind to millions......if you have a popular blog.

    Nope, sorry, not enough. Fire him now and devote the next dozen issues to the right to keep and bear arms.

    Looks like the first ammendment

    works a lot better than the second. Good to know that there is a forum for debate that actually works in this country. Good to know that in a free market the power of the purse works.

    Wonder what this guy will do next? Now that he has been completely villified and dismissed by the pro 2A crowd he is open to engagement by the antis. A man has to earn a living, and his beliefs are no longer a secret.

    We've already got a megathread detailing the Zumbo incident.
