If you’re tired of businesses that try to sell you products with one hand while they undermine your gun rights with the other, you’ll be excited to know that the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms has created a handy-dandy list of anti-gun businesses that don’t want your money. They’re calling it “Don’t Feed the Gun Prohibitionists,” and although it’s not a new idea, it’s one whose time has come. Click here to check it out!
For years, Second Amendment supporters have voted with their wallets and boycotted businesses that don’t support our values. We want nothing to do with the Levi’s Lizards or Dick’s (no matter how much Mike Bloomberg loves them). Some sly pranksters have even gone so far as to trade spare magazines for ugly anti-gun Toms shoes. It’s a strategy that works, as Dick’s flaccid sales have proven.
“Many brand name businesses and corporate leadership have a nefarious agenda to limit gun rights,” said CCRBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Their current and potential patrons should have the knowledge of what their hard earned dollars are actually funding.
“A free market dictates the right of consumers to know about the products they purchase,” he continued, “and we encourage people buy products from companies they can count on to not support efforts aimed at curtailing constitutional rights. By providing this information, we hope gun owning consumers make reasonable decisions about which businesses to patronize. This might convince some businesses to re-think their core values.”
CCRKBA’s list includes such recognizable names as Costco, Burger King, Delta Airlines, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Hallmark, the Hard Rock Café, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, Progressive Insurance, Sara Lee and Yelp. There are nearly 200 businesses and their bosses on the list. The roster represents companies and corporate leadership that have made donations and/or advocated on behalf of gun control organizations, including sending an open group letter to the United States senate urging additional restriction and firearms bans.
