Great list, thanks for posting it, but they mention Starbucks as being an antigun company. AFAIK, the only antigun thing they ever expressly did was some local manager in Wash, DC, gave some money in Starbuck's name to HCI after Columbine, but the company distanced itself from him, when there were protests, and forbade this kind of stuff done in their name. On their webpage, [url]www.starbucks.com[/url], there is no mention of guns anywhere. (A contribution was made to some anti-violence group in Melrose, MA, though....) Also from their [url= http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/criteria.asp]grants webpage[/url]:
The Starbucks Foundation funds may not be used for the following: One time fundraising events or the purchase of tables at events Event sponsorships Production of marketing materials (T-shirts, posters, flyers) that promote Starbucks Production of materials (books, software) to sell in Starbucks stores Capital expenditures (building or land acquisitions, equipment, and furniture) Grants to individuals Fellowships/scholarships [red]The promotion of religious or political causes[/red]

How does Michael Gross get off being on the board of directors of HCI while playing a survivalist/gun nut on the Tremors movies and TV show? Bastard.

A certain NBA star almost got his ass beat by my crew for smacking his girl around in front of a teller machine late one night. But UNC Athletics owns this town so the cops were more likely to arrest my boys then him. Yes, they let it go. Yes they had it on camera. Of course he hates guns. Some chick might blow his nuts off someday.

What's odd about it? If I have a choice where to spend my money, do I pick Company A that isn't antigun or Company B that is? If I don't know which company is and which isn't anti gun how can I make an informed decision?

I didn't see H&R Block mentioned there. They cancelled a co-branding deal with NRA after gettting a few whiney letters. I also didn't see State Farm Insurance listed.

I see that the Cummins engine Co is listed. I knew there was a reason thet I didnt buy that dodge with a diesel.
