“If Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms are truly invested in their claim, then they should do what Magpul did,” TTAG commentator Slovko writes under John Boch’s editorial Can Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms be Trusted for the Long Haul? “The should pledge to leave the state should the bill pass. Anything short of that and I think they’re just blowing smoke up our collective backsides.”
Right answer? Because, let’s face it, if the bill passes both brands are toast amongst The People of the Gun. Which they may be in any case. So . . . maybe they should issue a new statement fully admitting their knowledge of, and complicity in, the passage of SB-1657 in the Illinois House Senate. And donate the equivalent amount they donated to anti-gun pols to pro gun rights groups. Yes?
