It'll be a "sorry I offended you guys, please don't make them fire me"

He's already stated his opinion. I highly doubt he's changed it.

I dunno what's worse - that fact he said it, or that he won't stand by it.

Too late.  Damage done.  Saying he's sorry just to save his job, he didn't suddenly change his POV.

He's not sorry for anything he is saving his sponsorship because he aspoused his honest opinion and pissed off more than agreed with him.  Now his sponsors are weighing thier connections to him.

Assault Rifles For Hunters?

As I write this, I'm hunting coyotes in southeastern Wyoming with Eddie Stevenson, PR Manager for Remington Arms, Greg Dennison, who is senior research engineer for Remington, and several writers. We're testing Remington's brand new .17 cal Spitfire bullet on coyotes.

I must be living in a vacuum. The guides on our hunt tell me that the use of AR and AK rifles have a rapidly growing following among hunters, especially prairie dog hunters. I had no clue. Only once in my life have I ever seen anyone using one of these firearms.

I call them "assault" rifles, which may upset some people. Excuse me, maybe I'm a traditionalist, but I see no place for these weapons among our hunting fraternity. I'll go so far as to call them "terrorist" rifles. They tell me that some companies are producing assault rifles that are "tackdrivers."

Sorry, folks, in my humble opinion, these things have no place in hunting. We don't need to be lumped into the group of people who terrorize the world with them, which is an obvious concern. I've always been comfortable with the statement that hunters don't use assault rifles. We've always been proud of our "sporting firearms."

This really has me concerned. As hunters, we don't need the image of walking around the woods carrying one of these weapons. To most of the public, an assault rifle is a terrifying thing. Let's divorce ourselves from them.I say game departments should ban them from the praries and woods...

edit I kind of agree that "Sorry I got my dick caught in the wringer" doesn't mean a lot to me.

My guess is their PR guy who was on the hunt with him got some very angry messages on his Blackberry.

Admitted he put his foot in his mouth? So that means what exactly? That now he doesn't think AR15s are "terrorist weapons"? Now he doesn't think that they give hunters and shooters a bad image?

We know what this traitorous piece of shit really thinks. An apology isn't going to cut it.

His blog should read "I am out of touch with the true feelings of many Americans and thus I plan to retire immediately"

That would help.

Damn he's getting hammered. I saw this one:

ALL - Jim Zumbo in NO WAY speaks for Remington! His opinions are his own. We at Remington take our 2nd Ammendment Rights extremely seriously and ourselves market and manufacturer a AR based 308 rifle. Remington Arms supports the lawful use of all firearms by thier owners in whatever legal manner they choose. We at Remington feel that it is the diversity of our tastes and uses of fireaems that should also be the binding element that assists us all in defending the rights granted to us by our fore fathers.

Rest assured that remington not only does not support jim's view, we totally disagree! I have no explaination for his perspective.

I proudly own AR's and support everyones right to do so!

What makes me sick is how quickly people on the internet have called to boycott Remington. All Jim said was he was hunting with our people! This is normal course in our industry. How else do people think we field test? with writers.

Remington has spent tens of millions of dollars to defend your rights and how quickly the thanks is threat and boycott! Please feel Free to post that remington does not agree with Zumbo in any way shape or form and we will assess our relationship with him accordingly.

Tommy Millner
CEO and President
