Glock Makes Significant Donation to Second Amendment Foundation ^ | 11 August, 2011 | SAF

Posted on 08/12/2011 5:35:37 AM PDT by marktwain

BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 11. 2011 -- /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Second Amendment Foundation today announced that Glock, Inc. has donated and pledged significant financial support to SAF's on-going litigation efforts in defense of firearms civil rights.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb made the announcement, noting that Glock has now become the largest corporate contributor to the foundation, in recognition of the important legal efforts SAF has mounted and will continue to pursue.

"I want to publicly and personally thank the management and ownership at Glock," Gottlieb said, "and all Glock employees who have made this possible. Specifically, I want to thank Glock Vice President Josh Dorsey and General Counsel Carlos Guevara for their involvement and for making this happen."

"SAF's victory in McDonald v. Chicago has made all of this litigation against onerous state laws and municipal ordinances possible," he continued, "and it is imperative that we continue and expand our legal challenges with the greatest possible speed."

"Glock's generous support comes at a critical time," Gottlieb added. "Most of our members and supporters make contributions in the $10 to $25 range, and Glock will be providing significant additional support in our efforts to win back firearms freedoms one lawsuit at a time."

Gottlieb urged SAF supporters and all Americans who are concerned about their firearms freedoms to support Glock and other companies that support their Second Amendment rights.

"There are times in the history of any movement, and in the lives of every person, when it is important to stand up and be counted," Gottlieb said. "Glock has stepped up to the plate when it really does count, and we will be eternally grateful for their generosity and their unwavering dedication to the Second Amendment."

Glad to see Glock step up to the plate. The Left has Soros and lots of contributions from wealthy foundations. The right has very few corporate donors, the opposite of the leftist mantra.

I expect liberals to seek laws to prevent companies that get federal, state or local contracts from making any political donatiions.

There will be an exceptions list, controlled by liberals.

Most Police Departments who are going to switch to Glock already have, and the US civilian market, including CCW, is probably Glock’s largest customer base right now.

Nothing more than smart business. Just ask Smith & Wesson how their civilian sales plummeted after their previous ownership backed “reasonable” gun control measures.

At least Glock makes several .45 models. That filters out the caliber purists ;)

Love me my Glocks.
Sold a SIG to buy a Glock, and never regretted it.

Great move on the managements part at Glock.

To truly show my appreciation I am going out today and buying another one and will most likely do the same next month to continue the celebration. I encourage everyone reading this to do the same.

Women can have many shoes and handbags to match their outfits so using that same logic I need something that doesnt make my ass look big!

I will take one of each and you can palletize all the spare magazines for me to ride in the back of my truck next to the pallet of ammo. No need to cover them, I want every liberal that I see to piss down their legs at the sight of a well armed man legally excerising his 2nd Amendment rights.
