Reading these interviews it is apparent that the guys really believed in getting cheap guns out to people. They all seem extremely intelligent and dedicated too.

Still towards the end of the interview the guy asking the questions backed Waldorf into a corner. I think he did pretty well considering the fact that it was obvious that they tried to provoke him into saying something in anger.

Jim makes some very good, compelling arguments against banning cheap guns. However, he also was in total CYA mode about the missing guns from his factory. He ended up giving me the impression that he was out of touch with what was going on in his own facilities. He should have had on hand as much specific information as he could about the missing guns case (names of accused, how many guns, where they were recovered, etc.) to show that the company was on top of this. Also, did anybody else catch this rediculous assertion?

And 80 percent of Americans in the United States, that own handguns in the United States own one of our products.


BJJA didn't exist back then and even if it did I doubt we would comprise 80% of all handgun owners in the US!! :roll:
