    Boycott The "Costas",

    Ive heard about enough BS, "The evil tendencies of "Assault Weapons", "Machine Guns", "High Capacity Clips" and other Misnomers from Republi-Crats, Jocks, Talking Heads, Movie Stars and every single corporation or entity with something to sell us supporting them!

    Its time to hit them in the wallet! Label them just like they do us! Call them "Costa's" and anyone that is a "Costa" gets no support from me in any shape or manner, an all out boycott! Its all about the money, nothing else really matters to these people more than filling their vaults with more of your hard earned money. So much more money that they can donate to anti 2nd amendment causes and even throw their "Famous Names" into the mix to garner more support! The only way to shut their traps is to take their money!

    If their face pops up on your TV, change the channel faster than Hanoi Jane gets whacked at my house! If you see a link with their name on it, don't click it even if your interested, not once. Don't go to their website, don't buy anything connected to them, no tee shirts, no downloaded songs, no movies anything connected with their sponsors. For gods sake, Bi-Parts need not apply, don't donate a dime to their campaign for re-election if they even think about whacking at our BOR's!

    One Simple Word will make make peoples heads spin and make Bob Costas name go down in history like Typhoid Mary!

    Lets start a list, don't be crazy, lets not hurt good people by being reactionary, there are direct lines that can be drawn and I think its time we start drawing them. I really don't know how to keep an ongoing list current here but maybe one of you can help me out. I will Identify the First "Costas Award", a category not a business in particular.

    #1- Any Firearms Dealer That Voluntarily restricts the reasonable availability of legal Firearms or Ammunition FOOG (For Our Own Good).

    I don't patronize any business that has shown itself to be anti-gun.

    Lets say this thread goes somewhere and we develop a reasonable plan for boycotting anti gun businesses. How do we take it to the next level outside of FTF?

    I think it starts by us recognizing that patronage matters and most smaller and mid sized businesses may be worth asking for a manager and telling them you wont be returning until they support all the Amendments including the 2nd. Its not a movement until someone in charge hears it for the 3rd or 4th time in a week and starts saying stuff to their Bosses.

    I dont know if we have to necessarily do anything organized but not give our money to folks that would restrict our rights. Im certain that means virtually all Private businesses that post a No Carry sign. Can't break the law in Public Facilities that prohibit carry and we still must go there but you can still limit the amount of time you spend in most of them. Do the DMV thing from your computer and everything you can do on the phone.

    It would just be a great idea if we had our own area to reference to remind us who isnt on our side.

    That's. great idea. We need a website or Facebook page that lists all pro gun companies and lists all anti gun businesses.

    Why don't the big 2A lobbies have a "thou shalt not trade with" list? I think that'd do a lot to get the idea past FTF. That and social(ist) media until they shut your account down because you are pro gun. We could boycott social(ist) media since they are clearly not on our side. I personally would love to see bookface and twatter go the way of myspace.

    emails ... each FTF'r emails the list to 5 contacts, those five contacts email it to 5 of their contacts, and so on and so on ... before you know we've notified 1,000,000 folks about business's that have anti-gun policies ;)

    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.

    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.
