Companies backing gun control initiatives

Postby Bruenor » Mon Feb 22, 2021 11:45 am

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms launched an initiative last year aimed at providing information to Second Amendment-loving Americans. The goal was to provide a comprehensive list of companies and/or CEOs who back gun control initiatives and legislation or have anti-firearm corporate policies in place.

“When we started this project last year, we were actually surprised, and in some cases disappointed, at some of the businesses we added to the list," CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said in a statement. "We discovered several brand name businesses and corporate leaders who evidently have a nefarious agenda to limit gun rights. Their current and potential patrons should have the knowledge of what their hard earned dollars are actually funding.”

note: Alphabet, Inc. = Google

Wish they had done a little more explaining on some of these like alphabet..

"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."

The actual list -

I have a bit of a problem making claims about people and companies, listing them all out with a broad stroke, and then not having any source material to validate claims. Seems a whole lot like what the gun industry deals with, and we should be smarter, and more transparent, about these sorts of statements.
You can't truly call yourself peaceful unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.

I did not know Gateway Computers was still in business. Have not heard that name in a long time.
