September, 2016 Update: BLAME IT ON THE MEDIA? NOT ALWAYS!
We all hear about dishonesty and bias in the media, but they can certainly be an ally, when practicing their craft with honesty and integrity. Recently, SC got more than our fair share of press, after we were denied sponsorship of the local High School Soccer team. The reason for the denial? We were informed that local school board would not accept our sponsorship (and display of our SC banner), citing a school board policy prohibiting advocacy for firearms, alcohol, or drugs on school property. Of course, come to find out, the board DID allow sponsorship by the local, neighborhood pub, as well as at least 2 businesses that sell legal, prescription drugs. No bias here, right?
Enter Kelley Severns! Upon hearing the news, my hard-charging wife (and SC Admin) jumped into action, demanding to know what was going on, and turned to social media. Within 2 hours, I received a call from the local Nashville newpaper. WOW! I made our case to the fair-minded reporter, citing this thing called a "2nd Amendment Right", as well as our position that our product (unlike that offered by the local pub) also SAVES lives...! Well, 2 phone calls later from the news reporter, and we learn that the school board decision was actually made autonomously by a singular individual within the school system, who decided to deny our sponsorship, as this person didn't want to take any action that might "promote the sales of firearms". Hmm...interesting position...'booze OK, lawful firearms ownership rights not ok...got it'. Well, I gave my new friend the reporter a piece of my mind, and off he went again. That night, we even made the evening TV news, as seen above. Right on, folks! :)
The solution came when Kelley received a call from the High School administration, asking for a F2F meeting. Before I could remove my work apron, Kelley was in the car, headed for school! An hour later, she calls, stating that the decision had been reversed! We agreed that our banner would contain only our logo and website address, and...voila'!
Kelley Severns proudly stands next to the banner she fought so hard for!
Lessons learned? The media can indeed be objective and bring attention to matters without bias (may God bless Tennessee...), and DON'T MESS WITH MOMMA!! :)
In other events, as I've previously mentioned gunsmithing demand remains over the top, leaving precious little time to attend to the correspondence side of the business. My sincere apologies. I keep hearing that we should expand the business in terms of staff, but suppose I'm too stubborn to sacrifice quality. We're still not taking in custom gunsmithing work on customer-supplied pistols, but finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. We ARE however, continuing to take in Hard Hat treating work, as well as custom work on pistols purchased from Severns Custom. Thanks to one and all.
