Ed-Zachery (exactly, Ha, ha)! We dont need no stinkin organizations, they just suck the life out of those who really dont have a whole lot more time or money to donate to any cause except living!

I suggest we make the list here and culminate it every here and there!

Heres another thing, I dont go to Walmart but lots of people cant afford not to so how do we do it and stay pure? Go to Walmart but make sure every time you do, go to the gun section and tell the guy behind the counter your not here to buy anything in his section until they make a decision Bill Walton would be proud of, sell anything thats legal at the best price.

The same could happen at Dicks, or any other store. That way you have more chances to rub it in! Walk by the counter with a pair of Blue Jeans and some socks, tell the department manager about our boycott then check out at the generic cash registers up front so his department doesnt even get credit for sock sales!

Butthead Entertainers are easier yet, if you see them on TV, on the cover of a magazine, in a link address or on the billing of a movie or event. Change the channel and or dont attend or watch the event.

Big Manufacturers are harder but not impossible to wake up. No NFL T- Shirts, Cell Phone Skins, Fathead Posters or any other logo imprinted overpriced garbage!

We really need an FTF Angies list! NOTDKU is the brains behind the organization (or lack thereof (organization that is), ha, ha). Call it "The NOT List"!

NOTDKU can you make something like this, is it wise, would you be in support of it? I do think it would need to be patrolled, nominees maybe even voted on or at least some form of real proof they need a case of FOOG whoop-ass opened up on them. We should never promote harm to a business without good cause and some people will get caught up in grenade tossing for sure.

Surely, their are enough outright offenders big enough to whack at their knees as a warning to anyone even dancing on the line to S4it or get off the pot!

Dick's has a relatively small firearms department compared to the other things they sell in their stores. They are going to look out for their primary customer - the Soccer Mom, and they don't want to alienate her. If they lose some of their firearms customers, they will survive. They are being responsible to their shareholders. A lot of the other businesses mentioned are doing the same thing. It doesn't mean they are "anti-gun" - it means they can't afford to dig in their heels at the expense of potential bad PR.

The worrying needs to about the anti-gun legislators and anti-gun executive-order issuers.

Let us not forget, Sam Adams and Jack Daniels both give money to anti-gun groups

Just make a list of anti-gun companies, sticky it, and let it spread through the gun community. Many of us are on other forums as well, a list like this would get around.
