Next Up: Cuisinart Endorsed by Jeffrey Dahmer?

H-S Precision, a maker of sniper rifles for the FBI, published an endorsement by Lon Horiuchi on the back of their catalog.

As Roberta has noted, the gun blogs are all a-twitter over this. Given that Horiuchi, at best, took a bad shot or, at worst, deliberately shot a woman in the face while she was holding her baby, that's not exactly primo marketing. Especially when your market consists of people with long memories for that sort of shit.
