Barnes & Noble's name constantly shows up in the extreme leftist circles. I have boycotted them for years. I would hate (there's that word!!) that good law abiding gun owners would give that place one "red" cent. These are just a few on my boycott list. There are many, many more. Some better known than others. I sincerely believe that at least some part of K-Mart's downfall can be attributed to a well deserved, though largely unpublicized, boycott. Who are some of the "lesser knowns" who also should be avoided?

Let's not forget the San Francisco-based Levi Strauss (that includes Dockers). They ran an anti-gun campaign a while back.

Actually, in my corner of the world, B&N is one of the few stores to carry Shotgun News and most of the gun rags. Anything to the contrary about their beliefs? toast

And they still are. Bastards. I was given some pairs of Dockers for Xmas one year. W/o a moment's thought, I cut them up with pinking shears into gun rags. My wife now knows not to bring in any Levi Strauss product into the house ever again.[V]

Toast - B&N contributed the max to one of the biggest freedon hating commies in congress - Cynthia McKinney, D-GA. B&N's politics are extremist to the left in every way. That doesn't mean they won't stoop to pick up a buck!

Last I knew, being officially anti-gun was not corporate policy at Starbux. It was only one store manager in Wash DC who made a big point of contributing in Starbuxx' name to some HCI-clone fund after Columbine, and he got his head handed to him by corp. offices, bec. of all the protest mail they got about him. Of course, things may have changed, but after their stoopid tactics at the WTC site after 9/11, i.e., chging. rescue workers for bottled water by the case, I imagine Four-Bux (a cup) wants noooo controversy attached to them at all.... .........................

Redray - see my above post. Research B&N. About 18 months ago B&N ran full page ads in newspapers throughout the country advertising books that are supposedly anti-hate. Every single book was written by radical lefist such as Georgia dem John Lewis or radical women's rights advocates, Greenpeace kooks, etc. Maybe somebody can come up with the ad. It is self-explanatory!

Starbucks was and is a large corp sponsor of the MMM.

Boycott the whole world. Send me your money, and you can be sure you are supporting a pro-gun "business." [:D]

I find Barnes & Noble to be much more conservative than Borders. Not only in their philosophy, but also in who they hire in their stores and the kinds of books and magazines they carry. The consistently find more shooting, hunting, and military history related books and magazines at B & N than I do at Borders. The magazine rack at Borders is always full of those leftist fringe and counter culture "publications", for lack of a better word...

The Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company, Kansas City, Missouri 64101-1200 [url]www.bonami.com[/url]. They contributed mightily to the defeat the CCW for Missouri.

Remember Sara Lee's $50,000 donation to Sarah Brady and the Brady Bunch? They named Sarah their "woman of the year" a while back. Sara Lee's other brands include Coach leather (purses and such), Hanes underwear and Jimmy Dean sausage. BTW, BooksAMillion has the best prices on the web nowadays. [url]http://www.bamm.com/[/url]. Highly recommended.

Lets not forget McDonalds or Wendy's save your money and your health!........
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 12:02:38 PM EDT
McDonald's and Wendys have supported anti second ammendment rights groups?? Say it ain't so.
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 12:07:53 PM EDT
Do you ever get the feeling that gun owners are in the minority? Anybody got a list of 100% pro-gun companies?
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 12:40:18 PM EDT
I think a list of companies that we are NOT to boycott would be more help...It sounds like the list to stay away from is very large. medcop
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 1:24:14 PM EDT
DScott, we (second rights ammendment supporters) are not in the minority. That is merely what the anti-constitution media wants the American's to believe. We got to where we are because we have no voice (other than the NRA which the media has convinced most Americans is the moral equavalent of the KKK) drumming home our message day in and day out. We don't control Hollywood, the major newspapers, magazines, television, the news etc. We do, however, control an awful lot of the money. That is our voice. That's why I think it's important for us to identify our enemies supporters and boycott their asses! The best list of anti-gun supporters I've seen is located at the Pink Pistol web site. It is exhaustive. Yeah they are a bunch of gay gun owners but at least they are in this fight with us. I'd post a link but I'm not a computer person. It is impossible to boycott all of them (but most), but if each freedom loving American was aware of where some of these companies stand we would eventually see a change. These companies care a whole lot more about the bottom line than they do any social cause. And we can effect that!

they did, and they still do contribute heavily to gun-ban causes, both the company and the employee assn. when i wrote them, their response was that basically they agree with the gun-ban philosophy and have every right to support it in deed and financing. my response was that i also had a right to not support their agenda by not purchasing their products. since the european markets will take all they can send, they didn't seem to care. i haven't bought levi products for several years.

definately sounds like that would be the short list.

And my point FL is that if millions of the "right people" knew of Levi's stance we could and would make a change in that company's bottom line in a very short period of time. There are companies that support our second ammendment rights. I'll let you know when I think of one! Come to think of it I can't think of a single large corporation that has publicly announced support of the second ammendment. We have a lot of work to do!

I prefer the fit of Levi's, but I've been wearing Wrangler's for several years now because of L.S. & Co.'s stance on firearms ownership.
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 5:59:05 PM EDT
no one has mentioned a company i step foot in anyway, cept maybe mcdonalds, but thats only if htier is no other food avail.
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 6:08:05 PM EDT
I too used to like Levis... Sears always had good prices. I heard they were supporting the Anti agenda (I think through PAX tv... I actually had a few exchanges with an exec there... he mentioned gun ownership as a 'privelege'... I corrected him on that!), I stopped. I started getting Old Navy jeans... they're about $5 less a pair and seem to last pretty well. Please tell me Old Navy doesn't support the Antis!!
Link Posted: 1/21/2002 8:02:52 PM EDT
In case no one has been to a Walden Books lately, they have NO firearms related material. As for B&N, they have all gun rags & their local stores aren't posted for CCW.
