Posted on 07/18/2014 10:11:10 PM PDT by leapfrog0202
All companies we boycott have received a 2ACheck rating of F for their lack of respect for the rights of gun owners. Your experience with some of these companies will vary based on location, however, the boycott is based on the corporate policy toward responsible gun owners.
We believe guns in the hands of good people make everyone safer. We encourage freedom loving Americans to boycott anti-gun companies until they improve their policy. Please share this page.
We also strongly recommend everyone know the firearms laws applicable in their own state, and states they travel through. We recommend the Travelers Guide to Firearms Laws.
So much for going to the movies.
I recommend handgunlaw.us.
I’m surprised the Waffle House is on this list. There are at least 150 of them between Mississippi and Houston - we quit counting after that. We have been in several when we are traveling this area and have never seen any signs about not allowing firearms and our family members feel comfortable doing concealed carry. Would be interested to know if anyone has experienced a problem with them.
Would like to see a cite on that myself.
FReepmail me or KoRn to get on or off the Waffle House Ping List.
“Im surprised the Waffle House is on this list.”
Likewise with Hooters. While not having any facts, my “perception” of Hooters customer base would be pro-gun. While not a regular, I have been in a few and never noticed any “No Guns” signage. But, maybe I was focused on other things :)
I’m sure that Hooter’s customers are looking at guns. Intently.
Simple, just apply the liberal line:
“Don’t ask, Don’t tell.”
Keep ‘em guessing if Ya carry or not.
Those are CANNONS!
And yes, they will put your eye out!
They may be cannons, but they’re charged with plastic explosives.
LOL! Well if Ya gotta go Ya may as well do it with a C4 BANG! (Code name DDD44)
Cinemark is all we have and since my life is the only one I have, I just quietly carry into a movie...never a problem.
Yep - but down in S. MS, the no guns signs went up and came down in a 6-month period after we finally actually legalized open carry. Waffle House across from the theater I go to doesn't have any signs either. The companies may have taken stances, but they probably only enforce/advertise in the more liberal areas.
I was shocked to see Waffle House myself!
“Im sure that Hooters customers are looking at guns. Intently.”
LOL! Very good! Agree for sure :)
Only two on the list I deal with, Goodyear and Waffle House. Now that I can no longer smoke in any Waffle House I have already quit going. I get coupons for our local Goodyear and will miss the money I save. To bad, but we must make them feel it in their pocketbook and let them know why. Send them a letter, a little backlash goes a long way when it comes to money.
Going to the movies finances Hollywood, no matter the theater.
DDD44’s — Them’s what I call big guns, Bubba. That’s field artillery!
Sorry, didn’t mean to post and run, but wanted to answer about Waffle House and Hooters, since they were mentioned.
I agree that there are tons of Waffle Houses in states that are typically pro-gun. NM, AZ, TX, MS, LA, GA, AR, FL, TN, NC, SC and VA to name some of the states I’ve visited and noticed Waffle Houses.
I agree with Trebb’s statement: “The companies may have taken stances, but they probably only enforce/advertise in the more liberal areas.” I also wonder if the list might take into consideration if owners/CEOs and/or others of these companies might donate heavily to anti-gun legislators or candidates or are vocal when anti-gun legislation is being talked about. JMO as I don’t really know, but it makes sense to me.
I mostly wanted to share this list in case there was any interest out there. I know that while we currently don’t own a gun, we have in the past and my husband and I are very strong 2nd Amendment supporters, so I like to stay up on this stuff.
Not to worry. Many of the places on the list don’t do business in our part of the country. Some we don’t do business with because of policies other than being anti-gun like Bank of America. Our family has developed their own list of places we don’t do business with and brands we no longer buy, but only after doing our own research or as the result of having a bad experience with them. It is long and getting longer. Sometimes I think we are going to run out of places to go and/or shop and brands to buy.
I was told that the owner of the Waffle Houses was a Christian, but haven’t been able to confirm this information. Hooters isn’t exactly the kind of restaurant I would ever go to so for our family it doesn’t really matter.
At the very least having someone provide a list gives us a place to start doing our own research.
Many places put up a sign, then take it down when they discover that it costs them business.
A list should include a date for the latest datum and a way to input updates.
