How many of you have forgiven Springfield Armory

I never knew what Springfield did to the shooting community. Until I watched a You Tube video with Yankee Marshal. His video was on weather or not to forgive Springfield for what they have done. I would like to know what people think. Do you hate them or do you forgive them.

In a nutshell Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms supported a bill in Illinois that if passed would have required all FFL's in the state of Illinois to get a state issued license. Open their books to any police force at any time and video tape every transaction they handled. The idea behind it was to put 99% of the small mom and pop dealers out of business. There was a provision in the bill to exempt all of the major dealers like Cabelas and Bass Pro. Forgive them hell no and I'll never buy any of their products.

Question: Did that Bill pass? Did it or will it become law?

I didn't know I was supposed to be mad at SA. That's not cool. If I lived there I would be really mad.

The only thing I own from Springfield Armory is a M1A Loaded, that I really like and wanted for a long time and don't plan on selling.
I feel bad for people it did affect.

I'm not mad cause I never knew.

No, I believe it was defeated by 1 vote.

Springfield backed off their support. The bill was killed.
There are more important things for me to be upset with. Springfield has been around a long time and they are an American manufacturer of good products.

I didn't know about it either, so i'm not mad. I'm sure if dig a little every manufacturer out there has supported somthing that we don't agree with. I don't own any Springfields and don't know if I ever will.
