After scoping out enemy terrain, I came across this list of companies that apparently supports the anti gunners.

No more starbucks or sara lee products for you!

What I see is a very long list of business names but nothing as to why each one is anti-gun.

I would like to know what are the specific policies of each that is so offensive. That way I can write to the one I boycott and tell them exactly what they are doing that upsets me.

How is Aerosmith anti gun when they had a arcade game where you kill people to their music? One more reason why I can't stand that group.

That game, IIRC, used CD's as projectiles, not bullets. This means they don't like guns that shoot bullets, but CD's are A-OK!

I boycot "76" gas stations and other Conoco Philips stations because Conoco Philips (who own "76") has been pushing for a law that would stop you entering gas stations with a firearm in your car, however locked up unloaded and even if you have a CCW. It would kind of make it hard to take your guns more than a few miles from home, wouldn't it, if you weren't allowed to fill up en route?

And I avoid Sara Lee products.

I would like to know about the companies as well...how they got listed as anti-gun.

I'm glad Costco isn't on there, I don't know what I would do if I couldn't buy barrels of butter and wedges of cheese that weigh 30lbs!! I do love that place though.

I figured most actors and singers and such would be anti gun since they all seem to lean to the left anyways.

I find it hard to believe that Kevin Costner is anti-gun. I met him in a Big 5 a few months ago, buying ammo!
He seems to go shooting pretty regularly.

I'd have to see more proof other than one site saying so.

I avoid Ben and Jerry's for that reason, but Starbucks has me under their alkaloid-induced mind control. I balance things out a bit by frequently showing up wearing camo and suggesting that they sell ammo, though.

I know they're getting paid for it, but I still like it when the employees remember my name and my favorite drink. Especially when the barista is cute... :whistling:

Ok the American Firearms Association is anti gun? then again you click on the link and comes up with a 404 error.

I knew 7-11 was a big time anti gun from when I used to work for them.

ok this sucks I can't wear Levi's anymore? As for Starbucks while I don't agree with their politics they are the only place near my school that has a half way decent latte. So not going to give them up until there is an alternative.

According to NRA Kevin Bacon is anti gun. After going through the list of actors I find it sad that those that make a small fortune on movies with guns then speak out against them. Although after reading that list I wonder just how accurate it is since we all know how the media will spin things so some of the hollywood set may not be as anti-gun as it sounded.

Mase actually retired after a few other rappers got shot and killed. Big part of why he retired, and also part of why he took up an anti-gun stance. If i'm not mistaken, he's a minister now.

Now, for the alternative question:

Is there a list somewhere of businesses that DO support the 2A, NRA and self-defense ideologies that we could support??

Those would be well worth supporting IMHO, but unless we know who they are, it's hard to know where to spend money.

Quite a few actors play murderers, rapists, serial killers, drug dealers etc etc. Do you really expect them to be pro-murder, pro-rape or pro-drug dealing as a result?

"Oh look, he played Himmler in a movie, but now he says he's totally against genocide. What a hypocritical schmuck!"

On the other hand, feel free to boycott their movies if you want to - that's your perogative.

You can't just boycott the world and expect them to come around. Unless, someone can show me that antigun propaganda originates from these companies, I think it's unrealistic to turn your back on every company that, out of ignorance, regurgitates the antigun party line. I think that spreading the word through word of mouth when ever you can will change peoples minds faster than depriving yourself of resources and choices that society offers.

Unfortunately, we have decades of false information to cut through. These people generally speaking are not firearms enthusiasts, some may have never even seen a gun up close and personal, and as much as it pains me to say this, history and government were probably not their best subject in school. So, like wolves among sheep, the Brady's, VPC, and politicians go to these people and proselytize their religion of antigun hate, by wrapping it in a colorful package and present it as peace, safety, and security.

We know what the truth is, and it is our job to be ambassadors and lead by example and show them that what they have been taught are lies.

I agree. i think that unless this list allowed you to see exactly what the basis of the claim is, and to what extent the support was given, the list is garbage.

i mean i dont see 7eleven compaining anti gun laws or the Clorox Corporation either.

I only quoted them because they were on the list of anti gun supporters. I have personal reasons that I dont care for their music, not really a personal attack. I just though it was kind of funny that they made money with an arcade that used a futuristic assault weapon that uses cds instead of bullets, yet they still kill people all the same, and that they are on the anti gun support list.

The list doesn't really seem to correspond to what people are saying in this thread, and I find the surplus of 404's questionable.

I don't think that boycotting a company is really useful unless you can do it on a massive scale, and it's doubtful that it could happen on that large of a scale because a lot of people buy from these companies already. It's probably better for us to support pro-2A companies.

This list is clearly VERY old, at LEAST by 10 years, as I see many names on it for people that died more than several years ago. Lloyd Bridges? (Died March 10, 1998) / Jack Lemmon? (Died June 27, 2001) / Rod Steiger? (Died July 9, 2002) / Hume Cronyn? (Died June 15, 2003) / Gregory Peck? (Died June 12, 2003) / Spalding Gray? (Died January 10, 2004). Sharon Stone? (Her CAREER Died with the release of Basic Instinct 2 on March 31, 2006). And there are a dozen or so others on that list that have died in the past 3 years. In any case, the dead time-stamp the list, so I would prefer a more up to date list before I take it as gospel.

Also, people change - they do change their minds. They might not keep the same political bias or be naive all their lives. They may educate themselves on matters where they had previously been belligerent.

Steven Tyler of Aerosmith has a CCW in New York for what it's worth. Maybe he changed his tune? And Madonna has taken to hunting and shooting sports over the last few years. People can change, so be a bit speculative about who appears on the list.
