Just remember that Ruger supported one of the key provisions of the AWB. They may have retreated from their position on high-capacity magazines since that time, but some people may consider their earlier position unforgivable.

Porcs should get jobs there and try to effect the businesses Philosophy.

As far as I understand the incident, it was a letter from the then, but now dead, owner of Ruger, not from the company per se.

I might assume that the fact that they actually sell 20-round magazines on their website means that they are not fundamentally opposed to such an item being in the hands of civilians.

Nevertheless, there are many who still boycott Ruger.

If I was to boycott every company that I disagreed with I wouldn't be able to buy almost anything I wanted.

I'm not one to boycott companies, but when it comes to firearms companies sleeping with the enemy, such as Smith + Wesson, that seriously harms my desire to do business with them.  I don't generally boycott them, but avoid them if possible.  The boycott of S+W in the late 90's forced the company to sell itself in order to stay in business, so those kinds of things can work.  Ruger has since backed off of those statements made by Bill Ruger so I don't mind buying from them. 

Now, on the other hand, H-S Precision hiring Lon Horiuchi as a spokesman, welllll...that's a whole different matter.  >:(  They'll never get a dime from me.

Nor from me.  Except those dimes that are stolen from me through taxation, I guess.

I'd just as soon buy a freezer that Jeffrey Dahmer endorses for meat storage.  Goddamn.

Good.  We begin to operate from a position of strength.
We will start manufacturing the swords and distributing them to our allies.

I have applied several times to Ruger via email in response to employment ads they post in the Valley News but I have not received so much as a "thanks for applying" back from them.  I am assuming you have some connections there so I'll ask; what is the best way to be considered for Ruger "open positions"?  My career has been as a successful sales and marketing manager with international supplier, regulatory and ATF experience which would have been a good fit for the International Sales Specialist position posted back in November at Ruger.  I have been hit hard by the current economic conditions and unemployed too long, if I can't catch a break soon I will be moving out of state for greener pastures.

I don't have any connections, but the best way to apply is to call first and ask to find out who's in charge of hiring that specific position (best place to start is human resources).  Try to speak to someone and find a direct e-mail that you can send the e-mail to, with a name that you can address the e-mail to.  Follow up with a phone call afterwards.
