Not sure how the new ownership will pan out, but up until then they had supported the Olympic Shooting Team for decades. They were not anti-gun in the slightest.

I am pretty sure they just make beer (well, if you call fermented corn and rice beer, I do not).

Before they were bought by the Belgians, they supported CCW in Missouri IIRC.

They used to be strongly pro-gun. I remember them sponsoring an IHMSA International match in Indiana.

In the past they strongly supported the hunting and shooting sports. Now that INBEV owns them, who knows?

I imagine one thing will stay the same, Budweiser will still taste like shit.

InBev, the new owners, are strongly anti-gun. They directly spent $400,000 reals (about $200,000) to outlaw civilian gun ownership in their native Brazil, and take strong anti-gun positions around the world.

Not sure how they feel about others owning them but I personally know someone who has seen some of the the Busch family hardware.

Of course this source wouldn't know the difference between and MP5 and an UZI so the descriptions are less than ideal, but they were defensive firearms none the less.

Then again Obama wants a full detail with FAs so....

FAIL.

It's "Miserable Fat Belgian Bastards" whe not refering to them as the "Sprouts".

I don't care if 5.45x39 is corrosive, that is why they invented water. I am not paying $350.00 for 5.56!

Their headquarters is still in the US, the beer is still brewed in the US by American workers, it is still delivered to the store by American drivers.

Shut up and drink it, it represents American jobs.

I don't know about their stance on guns, but they sure are pushing that "go green" crap.
