At the National Rifle Association annual meeting the Coalition of
New Jersey Sportsmen (CNJS) distributed a flyer which lambasted Colt's
Manufacturing for it's "anti-gun" lobbying activities. CNJS leaders
were approached by outraged Colt's sales personnel who claimed we were
not accurate and they were attacked unfairly. CNJS Legislative
Committee Chairman, Alan Rice received a telephone call from Colt's
lobbyist, Beth Lavach who complained loudly about the flyer. Ms.
Lavach asserted that Colt's is not anti-gun and supports individual
Based upon the remarks of Colt's President Ron Stewart on ABC
News' Nightline and as published in American Firearms Industry
Magazine, we can only surmise that Colt's employees were upset
because we published the truth.
If our first publication about the truth behind Colt's upset their
salesmen, they will be very upset when they learn that CNJS
researchers have discovered that the owner of Colt's, investment
bank Zilkha and Company and one of its principals, Donald Zilkha, have
donated at least $1500.00 to the notorious gun prohibitionist and
criminal's best friend, Congressman Charles Schumer. CNJS researchers
have also learned the Mr. Zilkha has donated at least $10,000.00 to
the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. According to Federal
Election Commission Reports as collated by the Center for Responsive
Politics, this is the committee which provides funding to candidates
like Senators Frank Lautenberg, Daniel Moynihan, Diane Feinstein,
Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy.
This is an outrage!
Mr. Zilkha and Charles Schumer are both hypocrites. Congressman
Schumer wants to ban all guns and has introduced legislation to do so;
Mr. Zilkha's company owns a firearms manufacturer. His company's
civilian products would be outlawed if Mr. Schumer has his way. Anyone
who has purchased a Colt's product in the last few years has helped
Congressman Charles Schumer!
Firearms owners across America should know that Mr. Zilkha resides
in New York City, Charles Schumer's home town. We can only assume
that his goal is to ruin America by making it as gun-free as New York
City. In New York City self-defense against predatory criminals is
We are reliably informed that Colt's is spending huge sums to
develop and market a so-called "smart gun". This gun will not fire
unless a special bracelet is worn. Self-defense will be impossible
without the special bracelet. The actions of Colt's officials are
detrimental to American-style freedoms and liberties.
Firearms owners should be aware: in our previous flyer we urged a
boycott of Colt's. Now our call for a boycott has taken on a new
sense of urgency. Colt's should also be called, at their expense:
1-800-962-2658. Express your outrage and anger that a firearms
company and its principals would donate to these notorious
prohibitionists. On Federal Election reports, Mr. Zilkha lists his
employer as Colt's Manufacturing.
