From the CCRKBA . . .
The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today announced it is updating its list of businesses and CEOs who push for increased gun control and prohibition, adding Gucci to the roster.
According to CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “We were reminded that Gucci donated $500,000 to the anti-gun March for Our Lives group started three years ago, and quickly was co-opted by the gun prohibition lobby.”
CCRKBA’s “Don’t Feed the Gun Prohibitionists” project has developed a dynamic list of businesses and CEOs who have been pushing for new legislation designed to impair the rights of law-abiding firearms owners. The current roster lists some 200 businesses and their CEOs.
“When we started this project last year,” Gottlieb recalled, “we were actually surprised, and in some cases disappointed, at some of the businesses we added to the list. We discovered several brand name businesses and corporate leaders who evidently have a nefarious agenda to limit gun rights. Their current and potential patrons should have the knowledge of what their hard earned dollars are actually funding.”
Gottlieb said a free market dictates the right of consumers to know about the products they purchase, and that includes knowing whether a business they support may be working in the shadows to erode their constitutional rights.
“We encourage people buy products from companies they can count on to not support efforts aimed at curtailing constitutional rights,” he explained. “By providing this information, we hope gun owning consumers are making reasonable decisions about which businesses to patronize. This might convince some businesses to re-think their core values.”
“We’re not calling for a boycott of these companies,” Gottlieb said. “Businesses and the people who own them can support whatever kind of philosophy they want, and gun owning consumers can likewise not spend any money with those firms. Let the marketplace decide. Over 100 million American gun owners represent a sizeable consumer bloc, and they will decide where they spend their money.”
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.
I won’t suffer any hardship boycotting them. They don’t have any products that I would want.
Just cancelled my most recent Gucci holster order.
I’m bummed. Now I have to return the luxurious Gucci holster I just bought. It’s made of the finest anaconda, lined with silk extruded from the a$$h0les of Chinese worms weaned on Champaign and caviar, and goes perfectly with all of my outfits.
Oh, well. Gucci’s loss is Galco’s gain.
I have no idea if such a thing ever existed, but it sounds hilarious. It’s also an excellent argument for purchasers of luxury gun-accouterments to buy such from local American artisans rather than from anti-Americans.
So – what are the specific requirements to make it to the list? I see one CEO I know of for a fact that doesn’t support more gun control (doesn’t not support it either). Is not supporting gun rights explicitly the same as wanting/supporting gun control?
I feel like this is something the Left could get behind as well. If they really care about the victimized criminal class, they should support them by only purchasing Gucci products from people selling them in the alleyways downtown.
I see Dan is sticking with this new format. It is absolutely unnavigable on a phone, and harsh on the eyes on a PC. Since I often browse on my phone, I guess that’s it.
I really enjoyed TTAG for years, and certainly over the past couple of years’ worth of daily interaction with commenters here. I’ll miss the likes of Geoff, LifeSavor, JWM, Tom in Oregon, and many others, though I’ve noticed that a good portion of that longer list haven’t been seen here since the format change.
It was a good run while the classic format lasted. Very sorry to see TTAG go in this direction, clearly in opposition to the wishes of the readers, but that’s life.
I Haz A Question, calling end of watch.
The new format SUCKs
Well, dang. I’ll miss your commentary. You’re one of the good ones.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. I actually find the new design quite pleasing and friendly, and I’m 100% on board with it. Nothing on the phone is as easy as the desktop, and this site is better than many in that regard, so no hardship there. Heck, the upgrade of seeing the comment box right under the one you’re replying to makes the entire rework worthwhile all by itself as far as I’m concerned.
Golly Haz it’s been FAR worse than this font/organization thing. Been around for at least 7 year’s(8?). It was so buggy as to be completely unusable. Never announce yer leaving…
It’s all a game so that they can bring back TTAG Classic™ to fanfare and acclaim.
Like bringing a Disney movie out of the vault or a McRib.
I do not understand why TTAG can’t set things up to allow users to set their own themes and fonts. Are there any coders on the payroll or is it not TTAG’s choice?
This format is TTAG’s “New Coke.”
I was thinking “Crystal Pepsi”.
I’m on board. Posts need not be categorized, imho, it makes it easier to miss one. Chronological order was not broke, why fix it?
I can tolerate the new font. I can reluctantly tolerate the new format.
The one thing that would make this new format better; making the sidebar a list of all content, regardless of category, sorted by newest to oldest. Essentially, a mini version of the old format, without graphics.
Having said all that, I still prefer the old format.
I’m having a hard time finding what’s new at first glance. New is mixed with older articles. Reminds me of the billboards that have so much information on them, it’s hard to read; i.e.
information overload in one glance. Oh well……
I can see why people are abandoning TTAG. This font/eye problem has been duly noted by numerous people including yours truly. A viable explanation from who is behind the unnecessary annoying change would be nice
As for gucci et al…they would bankrupt if they depended on me for one dime.
Boycotting Gucci? Done& done. Funny but a very & famous decorative icon named Tiffany did some famous gun embellishment when they got well known(I have sold Tifanny Bronze desk sets as an antique dealer). Gucci has NOTHING I need!
This is the direction we are moving in this country.
“Michigan ammo company is background checking their customers for Biden voters”
Its called Liberty which gives us Freedom to choose.
Add Fenix ammunition to that party.
Granted, they’re not doing backgrounds. You could lie and say you didn’t vote for biden, but then that says a lot about the voter if they do.
Then again, these people are absolutely shameless.
DOH. I didn’t know that Fenix was the michigan company before clicking the link…
Maybe it’s just me but I’ve never heard anyone say “Gucci” in any context other than to insult or mock.
True enough. The often heard insult for a certain type of bling.
Me: I finally bought a Gen 5 Glock.
Non-Glock coworker: Are you going to Gucci it all up?
Me: (mentally plots to put Creepy Joe sticker on co-workers car)
Gucci Gucci goo theres dog sht on you shoe.
YEP ITS A TWO WAY STREET OUT THERE . HELL IF DO N HELL IF DON,T .
WELL IF WAL MART DOESN’T CARRY IT GUESS I DON’T GET IT . HA
The list never got to C. There are 24 more alpha characters to the list.
Where are we going to get our Gucci Glocks from now?
Sheriff Bart will be very disappointed when he finds out about this.
Just about all of these companies have caved to the anti gunners that constantly seek to eliminate our second amendment rights.Our only answer is to boycott them to send a message we are tired of their stance on gun rights.I just started to boycott Bed Bath and Beyond because of their curtailing of My Pillow Goods.I order direct from them and other vendors now that support our gun rights and constitution.
Why aren’t they caving to pro-gunners? All the caving I’m seeing goes only one way.
This new website layout sucks!
