    Just a list of companies that have lost my business. I already don't support most of those companies on that list anyway as they are rabid socialist hypocrites who benefit from capitalism.

    Of course the Bloomberg mommy group is responsible for much of this as he runs around with his five full-time armed bodyguards. The sheer hypocrisy of Bloomberg with his full-time armed contingent trying to disarm everyone else is just mind blowing.

    A thought occurs. I get not buying goods and services because one doesn't want to support said companies. But what about employees? If a pro 2A person has a good steady job with one of these companies, should they quit? Or should they just not buy anything from their own company? If they boycott but don't quit, are they hypocrites?

    I've never even heard of most of these pathetic companies.

    it would be great to see a list of companies that support our rights writing a similar letter.

    Maybe, since boycotting all the “woke” businesses is impractical, we should OC enmass, handguns only. Meet up at one of the retailers and peaceful walking do some shopping and walk out. Leaving a card saying the establishment has never been safer.

    We need to do something.

    I am not a big open carry fan unless it is the back country. I think it is amateur carry in populated areas. However, if the Tex Grebners of the world want to open carry, I don't think they should be infringed upon and I will support them by not supporting companies that don't recognize their rights.

    Maybe go in CCW, put a whole bunch of stuff in a cart, then leave a card saying you would have bought the items if not for their stance on guns, tell them you carried concealed and nothing bad happened and if it had you could have protected the store. Since they don't support gun rights end it with "I won't be coming back."

    All the street gang affiliated yutes that I know tell me that they ain’t boycotting chit. They plan on going to all of these stores, and they seemed happy with the new policy. Who’d have thought it?

    Yep, same for me. Looked through the list for companies that I will no longer spend my $$$ at - and found VERY few companies on that list that I have ever heard of.

    Like always, I strive to not give one f---ing penny to any anti 2nd Amendment company/corporation/person/etc... I might not always be able to do it, but I try my d--- hardest!

    Let's see, 145 companies on the list.

    As of 2015, there were 19,464 firms with more than 500 employees.
    And 3,600,000 with less than 5 employees.

    "In 2015 (the most recent year with census data, as of this writing), there were 5.9M firms had at least one employee at some point in the year. These firms can have multiple locations, which the census calls “establishments.” There were 7.6M establishments in 2015.

    The number of firms by employment size decays exponentially, from 3.6M with less than 5 employees, down to 19,464 firms with more than 500 employees."

    Act responsibly now or simply slink away and STFU.

    Forever.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Of the few I recognize, looks like the usual suspects.
    BTW, what is the "Goat Group"? Never mind I don't want to know. :alex:

    Never heard of most of them. The ones that I do know of and I used to patronize, I will boycott.
