Support Hallmark against Gun Control this Father's Day
The Ponder News ^ | May 30, 2014 | Shonda Ponder

Posted on 05/30/2014 7:45:20 PM PDT by ThePonder

Hallmark's Chairman Donald Hall, Jr.'s response to a letter from victims of gun violence and clergy asking that Hallmark publicly support Universal Background Checks (a background check for every gun sale) was, “We do not get involved in divisive issues.”

Hallmark has ruffled the feathers of anti-gun extremists like the National Gun Victims Action Council (NGVAC). NGVAC has asked it's followers to boycott Hallmark and to call on sponsors to stop sponsoring the Hallmark Channel because of it.

So, this Father's Day, if you don't believe MORE background checks will prevent criminals from getting guns, buy a Hallmark card.

That is a welcome change from Hallmark as they used to be one of the big supporters of Gun Control.

They make cards specifically for queers. I will NOT put any of my money in their coffers.

I’m surprised. I actually met Don Jr. a couple of times there (on the elevator, both times).

He was always courteous and nice.

Both extremely brief occurrences. Probably would not remember me.

Americans need to boycott the anti-Bill of Rights Nazi gun grabbers down at NGVAC.

Actually worked for Hallmark for a couple of months. I had just got out of the service and was looking for a career. I liked the money but not the assembly line job I had. I moved on but the job was part of my resume. I got minimum wage. People you have to understand, minimum wage is a stepping stone to a better job. $1.35 an hour eventually led to +$50.00 an hour.

I think I’ll support more background checks of Hollywood producers and their families especially if they love gun control so much!!

Yes we are - too many "highly principled" folks who have no sense of reality. The Democrat Party thanks them for their service and President Hillary Clinton will have a warm place in he heart for them as she falsifies the oath.

While I might agree with Hallmarks position, I can no longer afford to purchase their greeting cards, nor any other cards and have since stopped giving cards altogether.
