ALERT! FREE “I Stand with the NRA Foundation Sticker” for YETI Coolers

Last week, The Shooter’s Log, covered the reaction from firearm owners and supporters of the Second Amendment to YETI’s decision to no longer support the NRA. Disgruntled patrons expressed their ire in a number of ways including blowing up YETI products with Tannerite, burning them, placing toilet seats and on them (and doing what naturally comes next), and destroying and defiling them in several other creative ways. However, Marion Hammer, USF Executive Director and NRA Past President, wants you to keep and express your opinion in a completely different way. After all, you have already spent the money and YETI and has already reaped the profits. Here is Ms. Hammer’s message.

Cuomo Urges (Threatens) Banks Against Doing Business With 2A Companies

It is one thing to have an opinion as an elected official and espouse an opinion. It is quite another to make a veiled threat against due to your political position or influence. However, that is exactly what many believe Andrew Cuomo, previous governor of New York, crossed the line when he “urged” banks and insurance companies—some would say threatened—repercussions to their reputations if they continued doing business with firearm and ammunition manufacturers. One of those ammunition manufacturers has ‘fired’ back.

School Resource Officer Stops Shooting in FL — Where is the Media?

Last week, there was another school shooting in Florida, but this shooting was much different than Parkland. When the shooter touched off his first shot, the school resource officer immediately rushed to the direction of the gunshot, engaged and took the shooter into custody—eliminating further danger. Did the news media cover the shooting? Was this plastered across your TV screen? Are lawmakers changing firearm legislation as a result?

YETI Drops NRA — A Knee-Jerk Political Reaction?

If you’ve been in social media “jail,” or on a temporary break from Facebook and the national news, you may not have heard that YETI severed its ties with the National Rifle Association, at the cost of a significant amount of controversy.

Lawmakers Regulate Firearm Accessory Manufacturer Out of Business

It is a shame when any firearm or accessory manufacturer has to close its doors. Colt went through its problems and Remington from its losses. We can armchair quarterback what each company did right or wrong, but in the end, it was the decisions of each company’s leadership that was ultimately responsible. Today’s tale is different. Slide Fire is set to announce that it will permanently cease all operations and sales on May 25. Was this due to poor decisions by its leaders? I would certainly say. More likely, Slide Fire’s demise is being caused by politicians in response to the actions of one person, the Las Vegas Massacre shooter.
