    UFC lumps guns under the "out of ethical or moral boundaries"

    Apparently, the UFC lumps guns under the "out of ethical or moral boundaries" category of things they ban. Oh yeah? Since When? What's unethical or immoral about a gun or gun ownership by a law-abiding individual?

    Then there's the sponsors, a revenue stream that Evans told FOXSports.com is just as lucrative as the checks cut by the UFC.

    Fighters aren't allowed to have conflicting sponsors in certain categories like motorcycles - where Harley Davidson is the official bike of UFC - or if a company is out of ethical or moral boundaries. The days of a fighter like Tito Ortiz being sponsored by a certain adult bookstore in Santa Ana, Calif., are over. Another recently banned category is guns, Jason Genet of the management group Ingrained Media wrote on his blog.

    "The UFC takes a close look at which sponsors they want to be associated with," Robinson said. "They will look at every sponsor on that banner to make sure you're not trying to sneak one past them that hasn't been approved."
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    I don't see them making that connection. It's just another item on the list.
