A Nova Scotia woman wants Canadian Tire to get rid of a brand of firearms she says are offensive to Aboriginal Peoples.

Myah Rach-Sharp was at the Clayton Park Canadian Tire store last week when she saw Savage Arms guns for sale.

"When I looked closer I saw that there was a picture on top with an Aboriginal man in a headdress," she said. "It just shocked me that in today's day and age that that would be acceptable."

Makes my Savage AXIS .308 more desirable to me, in that it is NOT "PC". Guess I'm just a 'Savage kind of guy'........ OMG "guy" is sexist and discriminatory; can't say THAT, might offend! I'm just a Savage kind of "gender neutral person".

I guess these PC idiots don't know that the name of the man who started the company was Arthur Savage?

That last name has an anti PC connotation so even though the company has been around since 1894 the name should be changed or better yet in their minds eye put out of business completely.

When will the stupid ever end?

If only the "aboriginal" were transgendered... Savage could sue this POS for discrimination!

And I'm taking my Savage .308 to Africa to shoot a Kudu named Keith in the face. If it has a radio collar on it, all the better... it will be part of the shoulder mount and enrich the story.

It's a good thing and I'll tell you why: When sports teams and companies have "Native American" names (see, I can be PC too...vomit....) at least people had in the back of their mind "...oh....Indians...they got a raw deal at some point......GO TEAM GO!!!" or some such similar nonsense.
Now that all these reminders are being removed no one will give the Indians a second thought. Out of sight, out of mind. They are in essence screwing themselves over by being offended by everything.

Listen, it's not the white mans fault they never got an appraisal before conducting real estate transactions.
