Skip to comments.20 Huge Companies That Want To Take Your Guns
Posted on 05/07/2014 6:31:13 AM PDT by xzins
MTVs Chairman is on the board of CeaseFire, Inc. Not only are they corrupting society one raunchy music video at a time, theyd also love nothing more than to disarm the public.
The office supply mogul frequently bans gun companies from entering their business contests even though the contests are supposed to be open to any and all businesses. Sounds just like our tolerant friends on the left to make such a move.
3. Bank of America
Turned down the business of McMillan Group simply because they are a gun company.
The worlds largest search engine has started restricting searches on gun info specifically relating to firearm sales.
A notorious target for gun-related crime in the past, youd think the company would support gun use for self protection. On the contrary, 7-Eleven has supported anti-gun laws. Apparently, the only people who are allowed to have guns in 7-Elevens are criminals.
6. Toys R Us
This popular childrens store wants to take away your right to own guns so that you can protect the children you buy over-priced toys for.
7. Ben & Jerrys
A very liberal business, its no surprise that theyre anti-gun. They have donated millions to gun control causes and groups.
The CEO and President both serve on the board of CeaseFire, Inc.
9. Gap, Inc.
IMG_2697-500x375 Corporate bigwigs have been publicly against guns since the companys start.
Theyve been lobbying against legislation that would permit employees to keep firearms in their cars during work.
11. Dannon Yogurt
Supporters of licensing and handgun registration, they gave a whopping $150,000 to the Million Mom March.
12. Sara Lee
Sara Lee Corporation owns Leggs panty hose, Hanes underwear, Ball Park franks and Hillshire Farm smoked sausages. That gives them ample income to funnel straight towards the Brady Center to supposedly prevent handgun violence.
13. Levi Strauss
Buy Wranglers instead.
The Chairman, CEO and President all serve on the board of CeaseFire, Inc. Every action figure and Transformers movie ticket you buy helps fund various gun control groups.
15. Hyatt Hotels
Ever wonder why it costs an exorbitant amount of money to stay at one of these luxury hotels? Its so the company can invest in disarming you.
16. Hallmark Cards
Lets see if I can put this in words that Hallmark would understand Roses are red, violets are blue, give us your guns or well take them from you!
Bob Costas anti-gun rant back in December of 2012 on Sunday Night Football caused quite a stir, although it was fully backed by the liberal network. They also ran a ridiculously biased hit piece on Remington Firearms in which they falsely asserted that their shotguns are defective.
18. Verizon Wireless
Customers have complained about the NO Weapons signs at their stores, but the company maintains that the policy is for the protection of everyone. Riiight
Sprint Nextel has its own Political Action Committee (PAC). Back in 2012, their most sizable contribution to a political candidate went to anti-gun Democrat Amy Klobuchar. She has notoriously voted to take away your Second Amendment rights.
20. Wells Fargo
These guys have refused to lend money to companies in the firearms industry for over 10 years.
It’s too easy not to support these companies.
The family has been making the shift to no contract phones (cheaper!)
If I were the ceo of these companies, I’d want guns out of the hands of people too. Nothing but over paid left wing shills.
I have a Ford F150 super cab and it pulls all I want it to pull. But I also have a 4 year old VW diesel jetta for mpg. It’s a good car, but if I’d known about this, I wouldn’t have bought it.
Like with all these companies, it’s too easy to switch to a competitor.
See the way the leftwing shakedown industry works? Hasbro gets to sell loads of toy guns without being protested because they pay off the protestors.
Good catch, dangus. I hadn’t thought about their hypocrisy over toy guns, action figures, etc.
Mark for later printing.
Thanks. Just cancelled my wife’s Hallmark card online subscription. She’s not too happy, but .........
The alternative would be to close down my business, and make six figures a year less. For that difference I can offset what ever Verizon puts toward anti-gun efforts with a few donations (GOA, NRA, JPFO, SAF).
In my area of southern, rural Ohio, I get ATT clear as can be. Verizon works on one side of my house and doesn’t on the other.
I also think your idea of counter-balancing their position with your donations IS an acceptable way of dealing with these companies. Most of us think of switching, but I agree that phone reception is a different issue, since I have the same problem, only reversed.
So, what can you do?
1. Switch to a different company.
2. If one of these companies is your only option, then counter their position with a donation to a pro-gun group.
Makes sense to me.
How is it that you can’t refuse to take pictures of a homosexual wedding or to bake a cake for another Homosexual party. But you CAN DENY MFGRS of GUNS to have their accts. in Your Bank or other numerous Businesses.
God save America from the fools.
I’d quit shopping at Staples except they just announced that the Office Depot near me is closing.
“For that difference I can offset what ever Verizon puts toward anti-gun efforts with a few donations”
Makes sense to me LOL
see POST #11
I haven’t patronized any of these companies willingly.
Id quit shopping at Staples except they just announced that the Office Depot near me is closing.”
I switched to Staples last year after Office Depot started contributing major dollars to liberal programs in public schools. Understand Office Max is merging either with Office Depot or Staples. Choices are becoming almost non-existent.
Living in the country, I do a lot of online shopping delivered to my door.
Any way you can get Staples/Depot type stuff online and just as good quality and just as good price?
Online can’t match the ability to quickly pick something up, and I don’t know about business accounts.
Not sure of the accuracy of this bloggers information and research. I’ve never had a problem with Google, for example.
If Google could sell your children, they would.
Sara Lee Corp has been defunct since July of 2012. It was split into Hillshire Brands and D.E Master Blenders 1753.
“Ive never had a problem with Google, for example.”
I can confirm that they’ve blocked searches for websites/articles opposing climate change, especially during/about the leaked emails. I’ve done searches for other topics, having seen an article previously that doesn’t get on the google list for 4 or 5 pages later while all sorts of unrelated items are listed. Therefore, I know that this is not an unbiased company and I do not doubt they block gun websites.
An interesting side note....I have heard that Wells Fargo is popular with identity theft and fraud criminals because you can open an account online without ever having to see a person at the bank.
Steal identity, open account, put a little money in, let account mature for a couple of weeks, deposit fraudulent cashiers checks which you immediately withdraw....
I buy most everything I can on-line and in bulk, particularly things like cases of copy paper, soap, household cleaner, 25 lb. bags of cat food, kitty litter, etc. Found couple of sources for ink/toner for copy machines which sell the refilled cartridges. Some less expensive but have found quality very inconsistent.
Staples has second day free delivery if you buy a certain $ amount which is great and I’ve found that for first time purchase to some of the sites there is a substantial discount. But even places to buy things on-line is becoming somewhat limited for office supplies. Cost of items reordered in May versus cost last October have caused me to say “Good Grief” more than once.
What I fear is that we are going to have only one or two sites to buy standard items in the near future. Does not bode well if you are on a budget.
I didn’t see ebay/paypal on the list.
And Starbucks too.
a confession. I saw this thread yesterday. bought a
Hallmark card today. I won’t do it again
about four years ago I saw a really interesting article
online about how the prevailing “big three” pattern
in various big box stores arose the link and/or my
notes are on my other computer. really.
