Just got this and haven't vetted it yet, but I trust the source.
For balance here is info from Grand Island, NE:
I buy Noslers......hope they don't contribute to the dems.
good info. thank you.
She looks like a pro choice Republican to me. But I have often noticed that business people tend to contribute to more than one party.
This was posted in another gun forum, and it appears to be true:
I'll not be buying anything Hornady makes.
Glad I don't have any Hornady reloading equipment. When I use up my hornady bullets I will buy other brands. Can't stand that kind of sheet. It is getting where all I can do is shoot, don't go to movies (don't want to support hollywierd) now I have to start watching what shooting supplies to use!! Liberals SUCK!!!
So far what I have found is Adrian Smith, Lee Terry, and Todd Tiahrt are Republicans. That leaves Margaret Hornady. If she is pro-choice that is a bummer. I am pro-life 100% but I know many gun guys that are pro-choice. God will deal with the pro-choice people. Other then Margret, I can not find where Steve or Jason have supported the dems. I actually know Jason Hornady a little bit and find it hard to believe that he would support the anti-gun mobs.
I hope I am not wrong because they would lose my loyalty in a heart beat.
In addition to Margaret Hornady's $2500 donation, "HORNADY GUN MFG." also made a $2500 donation.
Who would control the company's policy on political donations?
But regardless, it's pretty clear that the Hornady company itself made the donation to the anti-gun liberal candidate.
While such donations are important for entertainment companies, they need to understand who their customers are and show some respect.
Damn, now I have to find me a new pistol bullet. I really like the XTPs too.
Now I'm done with hornady myself!
I am done with them also.
Going to ask my gun store about this.
I sent Hornady mfg an e mail in concerns from what I saw posted about them. This is the reply i got back. i believe that people like margret and don would really like to discredit Hornady mfg so this is what i found. Hope this helps.
Dear Sir or Ma'am,
With a few lingering questions still circulating, we offer one final response.
As stated before, Margaret Hornady-David & Don David are not employees, board members, shareholders or owners in any way of Hornady Manufacturing and they derive no income from our company or its operations. Margaret retired in 2009 and Don in 1999. (We previously stated “early 2000’s” simply because few could remember the exact year he retired). We are a private company so we don’t often share our business.
As for Don listing “Hornady Gun Mfg.” on his donation, he retired in 1999 and we are not a gun manufacturer. We do not know why it is listed that way.
Websites, including the State of Nebraska, that list Margaret as Vice President are simply out-of-date. As previously stated, she retired from the company in 2009. Anything listed to the contrary is erroneous, nor have we taken the time to update them.
None of us have control over how our relatives think or vote – as much as we wish we did. Yes, Thanksgiving is going to be awkward for the Hornady family this year.
Steve and Jason Hornady
I have spoke with both Steve and Jason Hornady enough to know they don't support negative liberal bull. I make certain that when I buy certain products to buy the procucts that support what I believ. When I heard this about Hornady I could not believe it because I just spoke with Jason Hornady about the current Obama status about 2 years ago and trust me, he doesn't support the libs any more then you or i. I was relieved to hear back from them on this.
76Highboy, thanks for clearing up this matter, there are too many people on this forum that jump to conclusions or believe anything they read without question.
Your welcome. I am not here to point fingers or blame but that just did not sound right to me. All the big name gun companies are under attack from all sides so I just am careful to check things out first. One thing I have learned, all these companies are ready to back up their positions quickly. A simple "Contact us" at the bottom of their web page will get lots of results quick.
Also, I will bet that the person that started this little "Rumor" is out there on a gun forum some where laughing because they know they started something that is not true.
And what would have been done if they had supported this person?
That is easy to answer. I would get rid of their E.Q. and go with brand X,,, even if it were not as good of a brand.
