Gun Company (H-S Precision) hires thug/murderer LON HORIUCHI as spokeperson
HR Precision ^ | November 25, 2008

Posted on 11/25/2008 2:23:18 PM PST by AAABEST

This is really incredible.

H-S Precision is sells hunting and tactical rifles. Here is a scan from the back cover of their Catalog. Note who did the write-up (circled in yellow):

For the three of you who don't know who Lon Horiuchi is, he's the FBI sniper of Ruby Ridge infamy who murdered Vicki Weaver in cold blood while she was holding her baby.

I'm not sure what H-S was thinking when they decided to hire this despicable thug as a spokesperson, but they are in dire need of remedial correction for this deplorable business decision. No gun decent gun owner/buyer should give them a single dime of their business. For those wishing to contact them, here's the info:

©H-S PRECISION, INC.
  1301 TURBINE DRIVE,
  RAPID CITY, SD 57703

For the three of you who don't know who Lon Horiuchi is, ...

I guess that I am one of those three. So, here is quite possibly a stupid question. Are you sure this is the same person you are talking about and not another person with a similar name?

Clinton and Reno kept Ron Horiuchi on, and he was also part of the FBI team at Waco.

I don’t remember exactly what was proved and what was only conjecture, but he may have played a part in shooting women and children at the siege of Waco as well as Ruby Ridge.

He appears to have been a useful member of the clinton team.

I agree, that is "quite possibly a stupid question."

Well, that’s pretty much a deal breaker for me if they’ve consulted with this murderer. I sincerely hope that they didn’t know anything about his background, but it is hard to imagine someone involved in the gun business doesn’t know about this piece of shit.

"...whoever thought "hey, lets get Lon Horiuchi" is not exactly a candidate for Mensa."

Or they simply misunderstood, "Hey, let's get Lon Horiuchi".

I wondered about the remote possiblity that perhaps none of the many who had to be involved with creating and setting this up knew or bothered to mention it to anyone. Sadly, that unlikely scenario is not the case.

From the AR15.com forum:

I called them and asked about the endorsement. The lady who answered said Horiuchi knows the owner and confirmed the endorsement.

Couldn’t find the page you posted...they may have taken it down.

Did notice that they have a trophy room. Wonder if Lon Horiuchi has an official FBI photograph of Vicki Weaver.

Lon has been hiding behind the fed for years..sounds like he’s out in the civilian world now, thinking that he’s been forgotten.

Maybe they hired Lon for the promotion of their “Lady-killer” model of rifle?

To be fair, we don't know for certain that he murdered Vicki Weaver. I personally think he probably did. If not, he almost certainly committed manslaughter. We do know he shot her in the head while she was holding her baby and not threatening anyone.

I doubt if I would ever buy anything from H-S anyway but I am sure I would not now. I will also do everything legally and proper in my power to harm their business.

FWIW a copy of my email to this company.

Dear Sir or Madame,

I read with shock the ‘endorsement’ on the back of your advertising circular by Lon Horiuchi.

Rest assured that as long as you have a man who is, in my opinion, guilty of either gross negligence or cold blooded murder in the death of Vicki Weaver as a spokesperson for your products I will never, every patronize your company.

Ever.

Mr. Horiuchi typifies everything that’s wrong with Law Enforcement today. He is responsible for the death of an innocent woman and only escaped prosecution by the State of Idaho by claiming the
‘sovereign immunity’. To date he has not shown one shred of remorse for his role in what many of us in the firearms community consider a case of government sponsored murder.

Please rethink your decision to use him.

Thank you,

L

If you own any Winchester or Remington synthetics you may already have one since they are an OEM.

I forgot he was in The Patriot. I’m so used to seeing him as an Irish thug in The Brotherhood. Too bad the show never caught on. Five more episodes and it’s history. Of course it might have helped if Showtime had promoted it.

Incredible is an understatement. Unless these people are on the fast track to supply the Fuhrers Civil Defense Force this has got to be a colossal mistake.
