    Shipping Loaded Firearms

    Henry Repeating Arms shipped at least four firearms with live rounds chambered. Aside from attracting bad press, this isolated incident has aroused the ire of Andy Pelosi (Any relation to dear Nancy?) who is affiliated with some trendy New York anti-gun group. Andy claims an apology from the manufacturer isn't good enough, because some of these firearms are designated "youth guns".

    First of all, this isolated incident was discovered, and corrected by the manufacturer. No one was maimed or killed because of this isolated incident. The manufacturer apologized for this isolated incident. But, of course, these facts are never good enough for intolerent gun grabbers who are tenaciously seeking a final solution to what they incorrectly perceive as a pervasive gun problem.

    Mr. Pelosi words it like he is trying to make people think these guns are shipping straight to little kiddies all over the world.

    He should get ammo before hitting his own select-fire switch. But then, that would take all the fun out of it.

    Sadly, the unthinking wad will likely hear only one thing: loaded guns = bad = need to shut 'em down.

    I know Anthony and his dad Lou (who recently passed) very well. Althought I have not spoken with him, I can tell you he would be very concerned with this mishap. They value their customers and are loyal to them. They realize safety is paramount in their business. This is nothing more than an isolated incident. I can guarrantee steps have been taken to remedy the problem. I wish them continued success.

    RIP, Lou, you will be sorely missed!
