The on-going flap over whether the Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) is anti-gun was described to Examiner Friday morning as “a misunderstanding” that has been “blown out of proportion” by a top official with the organization.
Ayla Hay, WWP executive vice president for communications at the organization’s headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla., told this column that WWP has conducted more than a hundred hunting or shooting activities for disabled veterans. She assured Examiner that WWP is not anti-gun.
The controversy erupted earlier this week when veteran Gun Talk host Tom Gresham revealed that his invitation to a WWP representative to appear on his program had been turned down. Things have changed, as this column reported yesterday, and this Sunday, Wounded Warriors CEO Steven Nardizzi will be a guest on Gresham’s program, which airs from 2 to 5 p.m. (Eastern)
