Titled: Is This True?
Troy Industries hires anti-gun, cowardly political hack Jody Weis as an instructor UPDATED: Coward fired. | GunsSaveLife.com
Article states you hired Jody Weis as an "Asymmetric Instructor". If that's the case and you keep him on your pay roll....I've bought my last Troy accessory, and I've got more than 10 rifles with your spendy BUIS on them as well as a ton of your mags. Some of them have your sling mounts, brakes, stock, rail, etc.
Very disappointed to see this if it is true. If it's not, or is about to be rectified, I'll be happy to continue purchasing your parts. Nothing personal against Troy...but it's time American gun owners held the industry accountable and put our money where our mouths have been for so many years.
Please let me know as soon as possible. I am building another AR and was about to purchase a set of your BUIS for it.

Just got wind of the latest dust up over your employee, Dale Monroe. I was directed to your Facebook page to read Troy's response.
Simply put, Troy's response is UNACCEPTABLE. Yes, I understand what it means to wear a uniform. However, the excuse that one is just following orders holds no more water for Mr. Monroe than it did for the Nazis of Nuremburg (please look up Nuremburg trials if you are not familiar with the history).
In short, Mr. Monroe swore an oath to the constitution, not to his superiors. The unlawful actions undertaken by our government at Ruby Ridge were a violation of due process, human decency and were an obvious attempt at entrapment and infiltration of dissenters for political purposes. Those actions were a major impetus for steeling American gun owners' resolve regarding government over-reach and the current de-legitimization of this rogue government.
To continue to employ a man who had a hand in such an atrocity and then defend his actions is to unequivocally send a message of support for such governmental abuse.
If Troy chooses to keep Mr. Monroe on their payroll, I will have bought my last Troy Industries product.
Thank you for your time,
