Someone whom I feel knows alot about 2nd Amend. told me this weekend that the makers of Cummins diesel engines(don't know if they are owned by another corp.) is one of the newest contributors to the anti gun movement. Has anyone else heard this. First time I had heard talk of it or am I way behind?

Yeah, I was surprised too. They were listed either on the NRA-ILA page or GOA's I can't remember which. You'd think that most people who buy/use Cummins products would also own guns kinda strange huh?

If thats true screw cummins. I'll buy a Ford with a Power Stroke.

The person that told me this is the son-in-law of Jack First who has a big gunshop and sells gun parts in Rapid City,SD. His wife helped start the Second Amendment Sisters Foundation in SD and is the chapter pres. in Rapid. I am sure they get all first hand info on this. We were talking about cebs such as Sean Connery and James Brolin being anti after making mucha bucks off gun related flicks and he brought up the Cummins deal. As he stated alot of truckers seem to be pro gun as they need to proect themselves on the road. He figured if they knew it might surprise Cummins on income. Sure wish the progun companies and celebrities would campaign a little harder the other(right) way.

I hear the new DuraMax that GM's using is supposed to be pretty good.

I KNOW I read this myself on [url]http://www.nra-ila.org[/url] I was just as surprised but now I cant find it it was under research or fact sheets or something...who knows maybe they didn't like being blacklisted and converted.

Yeah, it was under research, but I don't think it was listed on that particular site as it does'nt look like it's been updated in a while.

Id like to see the research on this topic...Its possible..Ford owns Cummins by the way so that means Ford is anti gun as well...as for the duramax...
