Current List of Anti-Gun Businesses You Should Avoid Giving Your Money

Current List of Anti-Gun Businesses You Should Avoid Giving Your Money IMG NRA-ILA

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Do you watch movies at AMC Theaters? Was the film produced by Bad Robot?

Do you eat at Chipotle, Shake Shack, Panera, Burger King, or Subway, or have a meal delivered by Door Dash?

Do you wear clothes from Levi Strauss, the Gap, or Gucci?

Do you watch CNN, MTV, NBC, HBO, MSNBC, or Showtime?

Do you browse Tinder, Yelp, eBay, or Pinterest on a Microsoft computer with Comcast internet?

Do you shop at Costco?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have financially supported companies that want to strip us of our God-given constitutional rights.

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms maintains a list of anti-gun businesses, which is also known as the “Don’t feed them” list. To be added to the list, a company and/or their decision-makers have either instituted an anti-gun corporate policy or lobbied lawmakers to draft or support anti-gun legislation. In other words, they had to take action – anti-gun action – against the Second Amendment. None of the firms made the list by accident.

“We’re not calling for a boycott of these companies,” CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said last year when four more firms were added to the list. “But we are providing this information to American gun owners so they can make informed decisions about where to spend their hard-earned money without unknowingly supporting efforts to erode an important constitutional right.”

One of the beauties of the American Free-Market system is that it allows business leaders to run their company in any manner they choose, and the marketplace will then decide whether their decisions were prudent or ill-conceived.

Like Mr. Gottlieb, I don’t support boycotts as they’re a favored tactic of the gun prohibitionists. Nowadays, they seem ready to scream “BOYCOTT!” for even the most minor of reasons or for no reason at all. Still, I work hard for my money, so I would rather patronize a business that supports my constitutional rights – all of my constitutional rights. Therefore, I use the list to screen out those firms that don’t support me. That’s not a boycott. It’s being an informed consumer.

CCRKBA list of anti-gun businesses.
CCRKBA list of anti-gun businesses.

Some of the businesses won’t be missed. I’ve never needed a $1,350 Gucci man-purse, especially after they donated $500,000 to March for Our Lives. I don’t watch CNN or MSLSD, browse Tinder, eat at Burger King or subscribe to HBO, especially since the Sopranos ended.

Costco, on the other hand, will be difficult. I hope someone talks some sense into their CEO, Craig Jelinek. This gun owner already misses his great deals.

Firehouse subs are awesome and they don’t discriminate against gun owners. At least in my area they don’t. As a trucker I travel to many states that support the 2nd and only do business with companies I know support the 2nd. I have found that Firehouse Subs are better because they don’t short you on the meats. Plus they put the sandwich in a box type container that allows you to keep it fresher. Where I live there are some local sandwich shops that I will do business with. Search your local area and you might find a sandwich shop… Read more »

I would like to see the specific reasons listed for each company so the issue could be addressed via correspondence with the company. Simply saying “anti-gun” is using a broad brush to paint them. At one time, that may have been enough.

Giving a “specific reason” would require the people compiling such lists to actually HAVE a reason… Something more valid than My brother-in-law knows a guy who heard from his cousin that a friend’s hair dressed said… The vast majority of the companies on any of these lists (and yes there are many such lists) are there because someone scoured the donor lists of various campaigns and copied down the names of all the businesses or business leaders who contributed to any organization or campaign the person compiling the list opposes.

I was pleased to find that there are only three companies on that list that I do business with and two of them (Microsoft and Levi’s) I only buy once every 4-5 years. Can’t figure out how I could do without Microsoft but I’ll switch to Lee’s or Wrangler. But Subway is dam near my favorite food so I’ll still buy a sandwich every week or so.
I don’t know most of the companies listed so it would be helpful if their main product was listed with the name when added to the list.

If the label’s vague assume ChiCom e.g. “Made in USA with globally sourced ingredients” = ChiCom. Even “Made in USA” barely means F all anymore. I read a few days ago that “Made in USA” labeling is legal for products that are xy% USA (55% I think). Assume the other 45% is ChiCom. Massive fraud.

>50% of seafood eaten here is from or processed by ChiComs. E.g. faux U.S. firm Trident Seafood. Allegedly caught in “U.S.” waters (by Americans or ChiComs?), but Trident told me it’s 100% processed in China. ChiComs are big on pork too so watch out there.

Why apologize for the use of the word “boycott?” Has it been officially banned by the PC police? The communists use the word boycott obsessively and not just against companies they don’t like but WHOLE states of the union that aren’t as pathologically “woke” (aka culturally comatose) as they demand them to be! If Cali-comunismo can boycott Texas or Georgia then I sure as heck can boycott Cali-comunismo or Coke!!!!

leave out the word “constitutional” and you’ve fixed it. Those rights predate and do not derive their existsnce from the constitution. That document only names them and spells them out a bit. It does not confer or grrant them. It only COMMANDS government to leave our rights alone.. something it began ignoring before the first election way back when.

Taking issue with God Given. I agree. They may have stated God given but it is actually instinctual to protect yourself. When you are about to get into a wreck with your car, don’t you try and move to miss the accident unless you freeze in horror like some people do. If a tree were falling, wouldn’t you move so it would not land on you? If you were doing construction and a board fell from above your head wouldn’t you move to avoid getting hit by it, doesn’t the person that dropped it say look out below?

I understand with my Christian teachings that everything is a gift from God so I agree with what you are saying.

My point was that the people that don’t believe in God have the same right to the second amendment and putting all of our rights to the second amendment on God is not the only factor to be considered and in times like these we should call everyone brother, believer or not and not alienate anyone. The 2nd amendment needs everyone’s protection.

I don’t mean to offend believers but I do intend to include non believers. Make sense?

We can always agree to disagree, but if Rights don’t come from something bigger than government … government will diminish or emiminate any one or all Rights.

No agreement with you would be necessary. For example: you exercise a constitutionally enshrined Right. The government says you have no such Right because they passed a statute eliminating that Right. Then the government sends agents to seize and imprison or kill you.

The “equal protection clause” proves that the founding fathers did not mean Christians only. Also Geo. Washington invited a Jewish group to settle in the United States before the Constitution was ratified. Thus the Christians only theory can not be what was intended.

My question to you was why do you think he made the statement he did. If you don’t want to answer that is ok.

Bottom line is that no one can argue that our rights are for all. I read it as he was finding that God being mentioned was offensive to Him/Her and was trying to make sense to a person that had a question. There is another way to interpret it too. They can be saying that they don’t believe in the constitution. I was just offering another prospective that did not include God.

The other thing you can do is stop using plastic when you are shifting your purchases to locally owned business. All those banks looking to restrict our ability to purchase firearm related products make their money on the processing fee charged to the store. Walk over to that ATM and pull out cash. Deny the bank their cut, save the store that fee they would have paid and the store gets a part of the fee the ATM charges for locating it on the premises.

The difference is in the message. With a boycott, one says “I will be a customer again when the company stops some unwanted behavior.” It tells the business that there is still profit to be made.
Not doing any business, and you will never be a customer for them. Nothing is to be gained by appeasing you.
