Default Classy Response

Turners response to customer criticism is one of the classiest moves I have seen. Unlike some of the other outfits that are jumping ship and bowing to the PC police, Turners has earned my business. Thank you.

Actually no response/apology would have been better.

thats kind of my thoughts. the ad was for a slightly lower priced AR, nothing special. if it had been for an AR priced way ABOVE normal price, maybe they'd have some apologizing to do.

I will be dropping some coin at your oxnard store to say thanks.

Thumbs up Turner's Stance

Instead of backing down to the PC police, Turner's stood their ground and issued an apology that, for those of us who believe in more than the first amendment, wasn't really needed.

Good job Turners.. very well written.

CTD can suck it.. what they did is like a Chevy dealer stopping the sales of cars because a drunk driver in a Tahoe killed a family.. it's nonsensical.

Also, why should the brand "Bushmaster" be punished or tarnished because some madman happened to use one? Stop blaming the tool and blame the person that did the evil.

No apology from Turner's is required. They did nothing wrong with this ad.

This, if only we could teach all the antis to use logic they might read your statement and wake up. pull their heads out of their asses.

Did he actually even use the AR15? I hear conflicting stories, some say that they found .223 casings in the area. But I haven't seen that he even used it. It was in the car by the scene, but never even brought out. I hate how the media hears about something and to get their gun ban agenda always use the term "Assault Weapon". We can say that about anything, I can use my teeth to kill someone and because I am "Assaulting" someone and my teeth were the weapon. I am technically using an "Assault Weapon". I putting a local ban on news, they don't deserve our business!!

P.S. Steve, I agree Bushmaster shouldn't be punished for some lunatics antics. And Yes Turners will continue to get my friends and I business.
