I see everyone's point here, but its tough to just sell your gun you've relied on and go to another.

There's a reason that everyone buys Glocks, Sigs, and S&W: they are reliable and effective. I won't be buying anymore, but I'm not parting with a great AR and carry pistol because they aren't going to lobby for me. We can't be petulant towards everyone.

It doesn't have to be pretty. It just has to always go bang when I pull the trigger.

I just went to Kmart's site and email reminded them about Rosie O'Donnell and noted I'd done almost no business with them since then. I told them to mend fences by speaking out for freedom now .

I emailed Walmart reminding them of their caving in on displaying / stocking handguns and urged them not to make more mistakes .

I made a 5 dollar purchase at Kmart and used the opportunity to tell the cashier about my boycott and O'Donnell .

There's plenty you can do outside of boycotting companies that won't boycott ...

LEO's... on the other hand are not being asked to storm a beach head or attack Faluja. The threats they face on the streets are no worse than what the Citizen encounters... so... forcing Law Enforcement... through "selective boycotts" of the firms contracting with them... to live by the same rules being forced upon us... IS FAIR GAME.

...and I've not worn Levi's since 1987...

You clearly served armed forces tack but never walked a beat in liberal America

I started to fall asleep last night when I realized who you all want to boycott. I changed my mind and totally support this cause. You are all very correct. Those treasonous bastards need to support us or lose us. We all need to stand up to those greedy pricks. I say we destroyed all their guns that are right now in our safes and nightstands. I say we go as far running their factories off US property. I want to proudly stand up and say boycott......






Happy weekend everybody!!!!

they came out in force in 94' ... the Democrats taking a pounding in the pols. 2014 will be worse for the the gun grabbers now that they have overplayed their hand and they realize it. That is why they are going for registration and confiscation ... it's all or nothing for them now
Again what happened to all the people that were going to be on the streets stopping gun control in 94. As for the democrats the voters have voted them in for another 4 years. That shows how far up the list of priorities objecting to gun control is to most voters in America.

Only one third of the voters voted them in office, one third did not win and one third did not vote at all. plus the republicans still have control of the house.
