I learned this morning, first from David himself on Facebook, and then again via...everyone else, that he has now had to follow through on his promise to leave the new Gottlieb-controlled JPFO, if it ever got to the point where he felt censored in writing content.
Gives me no joy to hear it, but it sounds like that's exactly what happened. (Yes, I understand that the backbreaking straw was at KABA, not JPFO, but I cannot fault Codrea for recognizing the very clear writing on the wall.)
Well, there it is, then. I can't say it's a surprise, but I suppose I did want to be proven at least a little wrong at least a little...or at least a little longer. In the end, that didn't take long at all, and that just makes me bummed for David.
I can say this: Codrea has handled this whole unfortunate affair with a considerable amount of class, and has reaffirmed for me why he is one of the lasting giants of gun rights. Long may he ride, shoot straight, and speak the truth.
I never knew him personally, but from what I understand, I do suspect Aaron would have backed him on this.
