    Oh no! The VPC, Sarah Brady, and their other three members may boycott the Redskins.

    Henry Bowman,

    This is yet another chance to put another nail in the VPC coffin.

    If the 'skins don't back down, they will be my new favorite team, especially since the Vikings keep shooting themselves in the...uhhh..foot? :uhoh:

    Wow. Football (at least the Redskins) just went up a notch in my book. Here I was thinking that NASCAR was the only sport left promoting shooting sports.

    waitaminutewaitaminutewaitaminute....

    The VPC is ragging on a football team for promoting violence?

    Do those folks know what the Redskins do for a living?

    "Do those folks know what the Redskins do for a living?"

    Yup, they use mediocre football as an excuse to sell $7 beer and $6 hotdogs. And $80 for lower level seats on the corner of the endzone. Parking pass is another $20. :)

    I hate the deadskins, but one thing about them always impressed me; their ability to tell the PC crowd to go fly a kite. If they stick with it this time, I might just cheer for them, or buy a hat.

    Hate to say it, but the Redskins may become a favorite (not football team though) because of ---

    Their NON PC Name

    and if they tell Sugarmann and VPC to "sack" themselves... :D

    Many NFL players shoot and hunt and own game ranches.

    The franchises themselves are another story.
    Each team needs to be checked out on a case by case basis for support of the shooting sports and NRA support.

    While there are also sponsers in NASCAR that are gun makers and or support the shooting industry, each team needs to be checked for their own policies.

    Don't forget Rick Hendrick AKA Hendrick motorsports, AKA Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Brian Vickers, Kyle Bush, gave 500k to the Clinton library to get a presidential pardon for his felony conviction even though he is supposed to be a Republican.

    Ide like to send my support and encouragement about your participation in the NRA clay-shooting charity. Its always good to see the encouragement of both charitys and support of the Second Amendment rights.

    I'm really confused about those statements. :confused: How would a CHP holder endanger the general populace? Do they think in a defensive situation a bullet may not hit the intended target and graze someone else? :confused:

    I agree feedthehogs, that everyone needs to be checked out. It is dumb to generalize everything, and just go blindly on it that every case will be that way.

    And I am certainly no Hendricks fan.

    Come to think about it, my guy's owner is the Redskins coach.

    My email to the Redskins community outreach:

    "I'm glad to see the Redskins are sponsoring a charitable event and promoting safe, responsible, and fun shooting. I wish all of the teammembers and other participants happy shooting and a good time for all! Please ignore the garbage campaign that the Violence Policy Center is waging against the Redskins and continue to let this shoot raise money for the health and welfare of our youth."

    Redskins are the greatest team ever, period. Why? One name: John Riggins. Running back, Superbowl MVP, NRA poster boy, general bad ass.
    For that, the NRA punted him from the posters. :D
