Others give generously to anti-gun groups (Ben & Jerry’s) or their executives serve on the boards of anti-gun groups (Disney). Still others, refuse to do business with US gun manufacturers (Bank of America).

We’re not just talking about “No Firearms” signs at the front door, here. These companies are openly hostile to the Second Amendment. When you support these companies by buying their products you subsidize the anti-gun groups that they associate with or help pay the lobbyists and lawyers they hire to fight against your Constitutional liberties.

Volkswagen – Most recently lobbies against legislation to permit employees to keep firearms in their cars at work.

Bank of America – Recently told McMillan Group they no longer wanted their business because they were a firearms company.

Dannon Yogurt – Supports licensing and handgun registration, gave $150,000 to the so-called Million Mom March.

Ben & Jerry’s – Expensive ice cream for the Birkenstock Brigade. Has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Children’s Defense Fund over the years. CDF is an outspoken anti-gun group and fought hard to support the Washington DC gun ban before it was overturned by the Supreme Court in the Heller case.

Sara Lee Corporation – L’eggs panty hose, Hanes underwear, Ball Park franks, and Hillshire Farm smoked sausage. Sounds like a kinky party but it’s really a recipe for funnelling money to the Brady Center to Prevent Handgun Violence.

Levi Strauss Corp. – expensive jeans to pay for gun-control advocacy. Buy Wranglers instead.

Walt Disney Co. – Chaiman/CEO and President both serve on the board of CeaseFire, Inc.

Hasbro – Chairman, Pres. and CEO serves on the board of CeaseFire, Inc. Every action figure and Transformers movie ticket helps fund CeaseFire and other gun control groups.

MTV – Chairman serves on board of CeaseFire Inc. The music and the videos are bad enough. Not only are they trying to corrupt your kids, they want to re-write your Constitution.

Toys-’R-Us – Sells toy guns, but doesn’t want you to have real ones to protect the kids your buy the toys for.

Hyatt Hotels – Overpriced luxury hotel for snobby elitists. They take the extra they scam from you and spend it to advocate disarming you.

7-Eleven – Apparently only the people who rob the 7-Elevens are allowed to have guns.

America Online (AOL) – Remember back when there was dial-up internet? There was this cool service called AOL…you don’t? Me neither.

Hallmark Cards – Roses are red, violets are blue, give me your guns or we’ll take them from you.

Kenneth Cole – Clothing for metrosexual men and unrealistically skinny women, priced with just enough markup to cover the cost of gun-control advocacy.

Kansas City Royals – If they would focus on winning baseball games and not on supporting gun control maybe they wouldn’t suck.

Kansas City Chiefs – If they would focus on winning football games and not on supporting gun control maybe they wouldn’t suck.

Sprint Corp – First they buy NASCAR, now they want your guns.

Stoneyfield Farms Yogurt – To think I used to buy their yogurt for my daughter. I feel so dirty.

St. Louis Rams – If they would focus on winning football games and not on supporting gun control maybe they wouldn’t suck. I’m sensing a pattern here…

Time Warner Inc. – When you have cable, your cable company takes some of your fees and gives it to anti-gun groups. When your cable company gives to anti-gun groups, the anti-gun groups lobby for “sensible gun control”. Switch to DirecTV.

Broderbund Software – Chairman serves on the board of CeaseFire, Inc. I can’t name a single piece of software that they sell, but they must sell enough to give to anti-gun groups.

GAP Inc. – CEO serves on board of CeaseFire, Inc. Overpriced, overhyped clothing marked up to help pay for gun-control advocacy.

Google – The world’s largest online search engine has begun restricting searches for firearms info. If you want to find info on guns for sale online, Google is not a good place to search. I don’t use Google’s search engine at all anymore as a result of this and due to their policy of saving and selling your search info. Try using DuckDuckGo, instead. They don’t collect info on you or restrict your searches.

NBC - Bob Costas’ anti-gun rant in December 2012 on Sunday Night Football caused quite a stir and was commented on here. Costas would not have been allowed to vent his personal opinion if it were not okay with management and he suffered no ill effects from the outcry his comments caused. His statements were not isolated, though. Back in April 2012 the news division ran a hit piece on Remington arms, suggesting that their shotguns are defective, citing just 125 incidents in over 40 years. The story featured a paid “expert” whose experience is to serve as an expert witness in lawsuits against gun manufacturers. The expert attacked a Remington shotgun with a sledgehammer on video, trying to make it go off, but could not. But that did not stop them from suggesting that there should be a Federal agency with the authority to force a recall of “defective” firearms.
See, somebody who does some research. Now how long do you think that took him.

Why bank where they actively hate you? Indifference? Sure, no problem. Hell, even political difference of opinion? Maybe. But, outright hatred? Not me, you do what works for you.
Should Jews bank at First Nazi Bank? Should Black folks bank at First Klan National Bank? Should gun owners bank at institutions that actively discriminate against firearms? Not when there are other alternatives.

Just my 2 bits-
My dentist is a gun nut, (has his FFL, and travels to gun shows five or six tomes a year), and I kind of wish he wasn't. He likes to talk guns, but it is kind of hard to talk guns after he numbs out your mouth and goes to work in your mouth.

It's good to see others kick in on this thread! Can anyone tell me anything on Apple, Wells Fargo and AT&T?
