BUDWEISER COMMITS $100,000 IN SUPPORT OF THE SHOOTING SPORTS . . . At the State of the Industry Report at the SHOT SHOW, Budweiser reaffirmed its longstanding commitment to fostering our hunting and shooting sports traditions by presenting a $100,000 check to the Hunting and Shooting Sports Heritage Fund. Bob Delfay, NSSF's president and CEO, accepted the check on behalf of the Heritage Fund from Rod Forth, the evening's guest speaker and Anheuser-Busch vice president of government affairs. "Budweiser has shown exemplary support of our hunting, shooting and conservation heritage, and our industry is extremely appreciative of this most recent generous contribution," said Delfay.

Well, looks like I'm back to drinking Bud again.

Yeah!!! "It is the policy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturer's Institute that encouraging anyone to purchase a firearm for home protection is wrong." Robert Delfey President, NSSF

I'm not sure, but to me it means he is trying to seperate the NSSF from the "extremists" who still believe that defense is the primary purpose of gun ownership. OR [i]...the right of the people to keep and bear arms, for sporting purposes, shall not be infringed.[/i]

I remember the quote from not too long ago, it was in response to the charge from the lefties that the NSSF is an organization dedicated to scaring people into buying guns for self-defense. I think the intent is to let people decide for themselves, not *convince* them they need a gun for self-defense, and if so, the quote is not that bad, although any retreat before the commie onslaught is a mistake. Back to Bud, do they make any *good* beers I can drink?

I thought that the NSSF was on our side.

Would you please provide a cite for that quote?

[url]http://www.clede.com/Articles/oped/delfay.htm[/url] The quote was taken slightly out of context. Here it is in full:
Firearms for Self-defense My industry has been criticized for irresponsibly marketing firearms for home defense. We acknowledge that some companies have aggressively promoted the use of their products for home defense. It is the policy of the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute, however, that encouraging anyone to purchase a firearm for home protection is wrong. The NSSF neither advocates, nor discourages, the use of a firearm for home protection. We believe it is inappropriate for any organization whether it's NSSF or handgun control "to make a blanket recommendation that an individual in Maine, Montana or Massachusetts should" or should not maintain a firearm for self-protection.

Alcohol and firearms! All we need is some tobacco and the ATF guys can bring the chips! [:D] Just joshin'. I'm glad they stepped up. Coors still running Schutzenfest? Chevy still supporting the Team Challenge? Why aren't these televised?
