    Dick Metcalf, the veteran firearms journalist who was fired from Guns & Ammoafter merely noting that the Second Amendment, like all constitutional rights, should be regulated, has written a new piece for POLITICO Magazine explaining how his 37-year career came to an end.

    "All told, I’ve written more than 1,700 articles for firearms publications over the last four decades, as well as hosting and producing several firearms television programs," Metcalf writes. "Under pressure from advertisers, it took Guns & Ammo’s parent company, Intermedia Outdoors—a conglomerate that owns more than 40 shooting and hunting magazines and produces nearly 20 television programs—just three business days to inform me that my association with all InterMedia publications and the Sportsman Channel TV programs I was producing and co-hosting was terminated."

    Why 'Guns & Ammo' fired Dick Metcalf

    Pretty sad when a gun owner can't bring up an issue without getting chastised here in America.

    So much for finding solutions.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The boycott threats worked. The people won.

    This is good news.

    Making companies drop their NRA associations is ok. Making a gun magazine get rid of a gun control fan writer isn't? The left have strange rules.

    So you don't like the response you got from your other post, so now open up another one, that continues to make you a dumbass. As typical of a leftard, the Constitution is the foundation for FREEDOM of the people, as long as those people don't infringe upon the rights of others. That is why we have law enforcement, yet once again, the failures of the government come front and center.

    FBI, CIA failed to pick up 9/11 clues / Congressional study puts blame on agencies' lack of coordination
    The FBI Needs To Explain Why It Failed To Monitor Boston Bombing Suspect Despite A Clear Warning
    FBI isn't the only agency that failed to unlock the San Bernardino killer's iPhone
    NRA Claims FBI Failed to Stop Orlando Shooter Due to "Political Correctness"
    Feds interviewed accused NYC truck attacker in 2015 about possible terror ties
    FBI failed to investigate tip about accused Florida school shooter

    So here we are, the liberals want to take our 2 amendment rights away and rely on the government to take care of US and yet, many times now, the government FAILED to protect US.. I will keep my weapons and not hesitate to use them in defense of my family or me.

    Good reading..

    This guy is what most hunters look like, unlike the extreme nutters ( NRA parrots ) who scream out 2nd amendment, even if it is killing our kids in mass shootings.

    Agreed, the majority of the education our kids get today is liberal propoganda.
