June 17, 1998

         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 rights.
         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 impossible.
         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.
