Industry to activism?

A bit back, Pete Brownell resigned the NRA board. They then bought AR15.com. And this seems like a big deal:

That having been said….2nd Adventure Group, a holding company wholly owned by Pete and Frank Brownell, has purchased the website AR15.com, adding it to their holdings which include Brownells, Inc., and other industry brands.

Pete Brownell tells The Outdoor Wire Digital Network it will become the backbone of what he envisions as a communications outlet for the Second Amendment.

Its already a significant presence with shooters, boasting a user group of more than five million.

Emphasis mine.

    Ultimately, it will all have been about enforcement of the second amendment, or the lack thereof.

    Industry *is* activism.

    I’m hoping for a little less NRA and a little more GOA

    Brownells probably sees the writing on the way in the way that Big Tech firms like Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube are deplatforming or otherwise punishing anyone who doesn’t meet with the approval of the left wing zealots that run these companies.

    If so, it’s a smart move to begin acquiring social media sites that appeal to gun owners. It’ll be interesting to see if they throw money at buying Full30 or bootstrapping a similar video service in the near future as well.

    That reminds me, I need to renew my ARFCOM membership.

    Looks like Pete Brownell hit a lick. $3.1 mil in sales to the nra plus $11k in membership comissions in the last 3 years.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
