[blue] FIREARMS INDUSTRY RESPONDS TO KMART'S DECISION TO STOP HANDGUN AMMO SALES . . . In response to confrontational tactics by guerilla filmmaker Michael Moore, Kmart has announced that it will phase out the sale of handgun ammunition over the next three months. National Shooting Sports Foundation President and CEO Bob Delfay responded by saying,[/blue][red] "It is both unfortunate and inappropriate that Mr. Moore has used media scare tactics to strongarm Kmart into making this decision. All Americans are deeply concerned about the issue of school violence, but to blame a retailer who sells ammunition for causing these tragedies is intellectually lazy and dishonest. To suggest that Kmart-or any other responsible sporting goods retailer-is to blame for school violence is akin to blaming Exxon dealers for arson or a Kodak film retailer for pornography. Handgun ammunition is purchased by many millions of responsible handgun owners for sporting purposes.[/red][blue] There are more than 16 million sportsmen who target shoot or hunt with handguns, according to the National Sporting Goods Association If there are 16 million I'll say this to them.[/blue] [red][size=3] Get off your damn lazy ASSES and help us fix this mess!!!

I don't shop at K-Mart anymore, so I can't really boycott them.

"I don't shop at K-Mart anymore, so I can't really boycott them." Same here. Haven't been in one in long time.

According to Prof. John Lott, about the same amount of kids are killed each year in schools with guns as are killed playing high school football. I wrote a letter to KMart asking if I can expect them to remove footballs and related equipment from the shelves anytime soon. KMart sucks anyway. Everytime I go there, they don't have something I went there for. Usually, they have things mis-priced too. But, I don't care because they'll never see my ass in their f*&^ing store anymore anyway. Screw them, I hope they go bankrupt. Regards, SOL

My e-mail to them: To whom it may concern, Due to your soon to no longer sell handgun ammo policy,I will no longer visit your store again. You really seem to dought the power of gun owners. We are a very large group that comes together in times like these. I can't believe you would give up that much sales by losing valued customers due to your no longer carrying ammo for handguns You have really underestimated the power of gun owners. It's a real shame to see your stores go down the road to "OUT OF BUSINESS" "put name here", gun owner and proud of it!
