Skip to comments.Wounded Warrior Project faces fallout after snubbing ‘Gun Talk’
Posted on 11/14/2012 2:10:52 PM PST by AAABEST
In a development that shocked veteran talk show host Tom Gresham of the nationally-syndicated Gun Talk Radio program, the Wounded Warrior Project declined an interview request on Gun Talk Radio because it's a firearms-related show, the program reported yesterday on its Facebook page.
I'm stunned at your email saying that the WWP doesn't participate in an interview or activity related to firearms, Gresham emailed the charitys public relations director, Leslie A. Coleman. Inasmuch as there are 90 million gun owners and most of them support wounded veterans, I think they would be shocked to hear that they are, by way of their hobbies, somehow not worthy of helping with the Wounded Warriors Project.

I'm not done supporting vets, but I'm done with WWP - an organization helped a great deal in the past.
I'll give my money to other disabled vet NGOS.
Boy, I’m glad we had a 2-Day charity Sporting Clays shoot for them last weekend.
Strange, very strange. why would they do that?
I would not donate because of the Playboy thing.
“Wounded Warrior Project declined an interview request on Gun Talk Radio because it’s a firearms-related show, “
So....they won’t go on a show that is firearms related but will gladly accept money from people who actually own firearms.
Looks like a PR nightmare for WWP.
The excuse (firearm-related) is not acceptable.
Wow....looks like WWP just shot themselves in the foot.
The WWP may have to give their management a “come to the woodshed moment”.
Time will tell.
All groups must be eternally vigilant against creeping socialism.
Gun Talk - WWF Ping...
Unfortunately, you must be very careful in supporting many of these “Warrior or Veteran” charities that have popped up recently. Many are scams and rip offs run by progressives. Check them out on their web pages and charity rating organizations. Several that I thought of supporting I declined after reviewing their web pages and their spending support histories.
Politics, the re-election of Obama and the new talks about a new Assault Weapons Ban (AWB).............
It's advantageous to reap the benefits of a giving gun rights society when the whitehouse is in no position to malign them but now that Obama is back, they feel emboldened to attack the firearms owners once again........thus the change in attitude from the Wounded Warrior Project.....
Stick that PC crap in your pipe and smoke it, WWP.
While I’m disapionted that WWP has taken this stance, I will still support them. When the VA was giving my son the run-around they stepped in and got things done. WWP takes care of Veterans and they do it well. Bash them all you want, it still won’t change the fact that they do what they say they are going to do. On a scale of 1-10 I give WWP a 10 as an organizatin.
Self Inflicted Wound Project
Just a monumental, stupefying WWF response to an interview request.
Political Correctness.......With the re-election of Obama and new talks about anti-firearm legislation, they now think firearms owners are in the minority and thus they no longer have to appeal to them.......
I could say a few things but I won’t.
I am biased but it you want 97 cents of your dollar to go directly to where you want it, the wounded, ill, injured and dying of our Armed Forces check out the Silver Star Families of America.
enough of it....
