Excellent post!

In ttag an article was just published, from ccrkba, of businesses which fund antigun actions.

https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/know-whos-working-against-you-ccrkba-publishes-list-of-anti-gun-businesses-ceos/

And for the list: https://www.ccrkba.org/antigunbusinesses

One way of fighting the Communist takeover is by denying their enablers money.
Maybe the forum administrators could make it a subforum/sticky, what ever you want to call it. And people could add posts to it as they become relevant.

40+ years ago I only wore Levi Strauss jeans until I read an article in Guns and Ammo that had them on a list of anti gun companies. It would be impossible to boycott every company that disagreed with us but we can pick a few and stick with it. I have not bought anything by levi strauss in close to 40 years and I taught my kids to buy from other companies also. I also banned Sara Lee products at the same time.

I know that I did not hurt their bottom line by not buying their products but it has been a point of pride to me not to have given them one thin dime in almost 40 years.

I stopped using Costco 7-8 years ago. Their origin was to accommodate business owners. Well most small businesses use AMEX. They stopped taking AMEX and came out with their own ViSA card, as if they weren’t making enough money. I know I didn’t lower their bottom line either but did spend $ 2-5k/year there. I also knew their politics was liberal based.
So BJ’s or some other vendor gets my business. I also stopped using Amazon because of some nonsense that went on with them and my credit card. Although Amazon probably owns 80+% of the cloud service we all pay for. Why isn’t Facebook, etc on there?

I’m sure there’s a ton more to add to the list. REI is not there, yet. They followed Dicks tirade and said they will no longer stock any items from manufacturers that have anything to do with guns. Not a tent or even rain gear made by Remington was allowed in the store. None of the Browning clothing, knives or bags. You must have to wear a pink pu$$y hat to work there!

Given the length of the list and the wide range of goods and services, I don't think I can completely avoid dealing with all the offending companies. I reviewed the list and found a dozen or so corporations with which my dealings are purely voluntary. I will avoid them and feel better about it.

Alphabet Inc is a big one. Without intervention from Congress, there's no chance they will ever be taken down a peg. And with how much they lobby, Congress will never get involved.

Congress used to break up monopolies, now they just take their payoffs.

That's quite the list. There's some real heavyweights on there

I'm wondering if a buy from and neutral list would be shorter.

I dumped Levis years ago for the same reason others did. I even worked there years many years before that. I met my first wife working there. That should be reason enough to boycott them. :D

Like others, it's going to be impossible to avoid all on the list, but will check it to avoid the ones I can.

What a shame and an embarrassment to the business world that the list is so long.

Few people can realistically avoid 100% of these businesses.

But all of us here should minimize our transactions with those on the list we might be unable to avoid entirely.

Obviously, Plan A is total avoidance.

I’m surprised Remington isn’t on the list.
After all, it seems like they go out of their way to ruin themselves! :confused:

Many years ago a pair of Levi 501's was something you could count on lasting ten years (if you didn't abrade them too much but there is only so much gravel or pavement that any fabric can take)...but then they moved their production lines and started sourcing their fabric from God only knows where and for quite a while they have been just a name brand offering an empty shell of the quality they were once known for. They suck so bad it does not surprise me that they are anti-Amendment II in the least!

I abandoned them decades ago and have found a supplier I like-

Texas Jeans are still made in the USA with US sourced materials and not only do they hold up, they aren't going to cost much, if any more than Levis and they are distinctly better quality.

I am disappointed to find out about Costco but being based in a region that is bent on outstripping Berkley CA for outright libtard-minded foolishness I am unsurprised. The nearest Costco to my little slice of heaven in the South does not display the required by law no concealed carry signs (nor do any others that I can think of) so yeah, the 1911 is with me when I'm there. Still, I lived in Washington State and living there when it went from Centrist with a bit of Right leaning to Far Left with the influx of Kalifornicators in the '80's was very much watching something I loved die a slow, painful death gagging on Spotted Owl Poop.

I remember when there wasn't any gang scrawl along 99 near Sea-Tac and the billboard "Will the last person leaving Seattle please turn out the lights."...

Those were the days!

I still wear 501s that I bought 10 years ago, before I knew they were anti-2A.

Does Texas Jeans have the pocketwatch pocket? The pocketwatch pocket in the 501 is sized *just so* that a Sig p938 mag sits in it just about perfect.

That's where I keep my spare stick...

And I agree. In my 50 years, I've only bought 3 batches of 501s -- one batch in the 80's, one in the 90's, and one in the mid 00's.

The ones in the mid 00's... the material is thinner. The older ones were thicker.

2007 hit hard. Not only jeans -- cardboard slip cases for DVDs got thinner. Aqua Velva went to plastic instead of glass.

Every time I search for (thing) online, I tack on "made in usa" at the end of the search string. THe last one? A bath mat. Forgot who made it, but it's USA-made. I'ts in my amazon history, should I need to look them up.

Oh and all my gun stuff is USA-made. Oils, cleaners, rods, jags, patches, etc. All of it. Pro-shot for the hardware, Hoppe's and Mil-Comm for the lubes and solvents.

While the concept is great, completely avoiding any anti gun contact would remove using this forum....it is Canadian owned.

When levis left America and went to mexico, i being a union carpenter, quit wearing Levis. Most of us wore wranglers or what ever walmart, sears, monkey wards had on sale. The building they had in Albuquerque is still there now its a movie productiom house and Phllips the lighting company has a small corner of it.

That list is long, but I fear there are even many more business that have the same views. Most on the list can be avoided, but not 100%.
For my whole life I have pushed for people to buy American, but the scary thing is how many company's undermine that very solid belief.
When one takes a stand and know their dollars wont go in to the pockets of corporations like that, it gives a great feeling. If 1000 stopped it would have no effect,,,but the greater the number, that will add up to a lot.

Thank you,
