“A new gun advocacy group calling itself a ‘responsible’ alternative to the National Rifle Association is launching July 4 – and it hopes to attract gun owners across the political spectrum,” usnews.com reports.
Let’s start with chairman Peter Vogt . . .
According to his Facebook page, Mr. Vogt is formerly of Stamford, Connecticut, now of Austin, Texas.
..................BTO a “highly advanced Cloud Solutions Provider, providing end-to-end Web 3.0 IT transformation solutions & services to the Fortune-1000, Energy and Healthcare.”
CEO Waylan Johnson is an oil man, also CEOing for the Texas Energy Group. American Rifle and Pistol’s President and mouthpiece is Robert Gelinas, another high-tech liberal, the CEO at the Google search-shy AppXoft. He’s also the man behind ArcheBooks Publishing, a vanity publisher with a distinct preference for its owner’s manuscripts.
Gelinas’ Linked In profile proclaims: “R+P is the Voice of mainstream gun owners. It exists to promote SANE gun ownership and firearms management. SANE = Safety, Advocacy, Networking, and Education.”
.............I only wish the NRA was faster on its feet instead of living in no comment Check-with-the-Committee Land. Then again GOA, SAF, NAGR and the rest are genuine grass roots groups who aren’t afraid to denounce the false flaggers, like R+P.
