Gun Nuts R Us, like us Steyroids, are profiled on FoxNews in a story of the power of the Internet to bring us together and raise HE** to keep our Second Amendment rights to arm bears, uh, to keep and bear arms.

As on object lesson on how to tick off us Gun Nuts and get reamed for it, the story cites the saga of Jim Zumbo.

Gun Enthusiasts Mobilize in Blogosphere in New Era For Grassroots
Friday, March 23, 2007
By Kelley Beaucar Vlahos

WASHINGTON — A massive and seemingly mobilized online community has sprung among gun rights advocates readying for any possible action by the Democratic-led Congress to limit an individual's right to bear arms.

While activity on gun issues has been light in recent years — no Million Mom march or action to renew the assault weapons ban that expired two years ago — an explosion of activity among Web loggers shows Second Amendment purists are anything but complacent with the new majority.

"Blogging is sort of like a gun store, you get a whole bunch of guys around the store, really just to talk," said Gunner Miller, who runs the No Quarters Web site. "It has a swarm effect — if we see a problem, we all start swarming on it."

Nobody knows that better than Jim Zumbo, a well-known outdoorsman with a 40-year relationship with the National Rifle Association. Zumbo recently lost his weekly television program on the Outdoor Channel, his decades-long gig as hunting editor for the magazine Outdoor Life and many of his big-name sponsors, including Remington Arms Co., for which he was a spokesman, in a matter of days over comments he made on his personal blog about so-called assault weapons.

Darn Right.

We are the grass roots movement if there ever was one and we've got the Constitution and the truth on our side, which makes for a great combination punch.

At least Fox News is the first I've seen to get it right and give credit where credit is due for the Jim Zumbo thing. Most the liberal rags have been printing that the NRA was behind the withdrawal of support of Jim Zumbo's sponsers.

They haven't seen anything yet though and if the anti-Constitution crowd keeps pushing for HR 1022's newer and more strict AWB they're going to get a first hand look at what happens when you tick off a huge group of Americans from all walks of life and political backgrounds who love the Constitution.
