“The left has figured out that it is impossible at the present time to actually get rid of the Second Amendment. It is not going to be successful to use the government to confiscate weapons. They have made the judgment that going after people’s guns using the power of government or the efforts to eliminate the Second Amendment will fail.
“And so they are employing new tactics, and they’re not advertising this. They’re not bragging about it. They’re not discussing it. They’re not beating their chests when it succeeds. And the name “corporate gun control,” it doesn’t mean that it is all exclusively corporate strategy and behavior. It’s just to distinguish it from government. They’ve given up on the idea of using government to get rid of guns, to find them and confiscate them to get rid of the Second Amendment, and instead they’re using the private sector to do it.
“The way they are doing it and the reason why it’s being called corporate is that participating CEOs will take their companies out of business relationships with any entities that support the Second Amendment or donate money to the NRA, have firearms training classes. So if the CEO of the ABC Widget Company learns that one of their prime customers heavily supports the NRA, they will cease doing business with them. They may even get to the point of firing and not hiring employees who own guns, who use guns, or who contribute or donate to the NRA or any other gun rights group.” – Rush Limbaugh on corporate gun control [via rushlimbaugh.com]
