Lots of people have retweeted and Facebooked about the story I wrote in Monday’s edition of The Daily News related to the fed’s recent raid of Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville.
It’s because the news took an unexpected turn with some seemingly off the cuff remarks at a press conference by Gibson’s CEO. He touched on a debate that’s increasingly spreading around the country about the size, power and limits of the federal government.
Gibson, for their part, is still hitting that theme hard.
@gibsonguitar tweeted on Monday: “Plz Retweet! Support Gibson Guitar vs. unreasonable raid by Feds by becoming a Gibson fan on Facebook: “http://t.co/Y0rpZKi”
On Gibson’s Facebook page, one user wrote: “I think it would be cool if you guys should make a limited edition guitar that has a Don’t Tread On Me flag on it to symbolize the injustice done to the company recently. Just a thought.”
