    Academy had to escort me to the front with my gun powder purchase, they don't trust people to walk around the store with it. I told them it was rediculous and every other store I can buy without that hassle. It was pistol powder I needed so I didn't want to walk out without it. I haven't bought powder there since and won't buy anything else.

    When in Maine ...

    avoid the Foreside Tavern and Side Bar


    http://controversialtimes.com/news/m...utm_source=LRD

    The owner of two restaurants in Maine is facing mounting backlash and a possible boycott after she attempted to ban the owners of AR-15 rifles, the most popular rifle in the United States, from her restaurants.

    Anne Verrill made a post on her restaurant’s Facebook page which told her customers that owners of the firearms and those who support their ownership were no longer welcome. Her Facebook post read as follows:

    “I have spent 12 years, intentionally, not being political on this page. Let me be clear, this is not a political issue. This is a human rights issue. If you own this gun, or you condone the ownership of this gun for private use, you may no longer enter either of my restaurants, because the only thing I want to teach my children is love.”
    Verrill owns both the Foreside Tavern & Side Bar in Falmouth and Grace in Portland, Maine

    Spend your money wisely ...

    http://www.businessinsider.com/brand...oycotts-2018-2

    Here are all the brands that have cut ties with the NRA following gun-control activists' boycotts

    Gun-control activists are organizing boycotts of companies with ties to the National Rifle Association — and they're already producing results.

    People on social media are calling for boycotts of companies that offer or have offered special deals to NRA members who, as part of their membership, receive discounts on things like car rentals and prescription drugs.

    While companies such as FedEx and Hertz still offer such discounts, other companies have cut ties.

    Here are all the brands that have cut ties with the gun-rights group after the recent boycotts as well as past efforts by gun-control activists.

    Delta Airlines

    United Airlines

    Hertz

    Allied Van Lines

    MetLife

    SimpliSafe

    First National Bank of Omaha

    Paramount Rx

    Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent a Car, and National Car Rental

    Symantec

    Best Western

    Wyndham Hotel Group

    Republic Bank

    Avis and Budget

    Serious question: had all these companies given NRA members perks until recently? Or are these companies only piling on with a (revocable, depending on political currents) pledge to not do business with the NRA in the future? Because I sure as heck wasn't aware we had perks with airlines or I would have inquired and taken advantage of them.

    Bottom line, though: these are companies that won't see my money. Boycotts work both ways.
    Hey Claire, are we still at that awkward stage?

    I have flown on Delta many times.

    I have rented cars from Enterprise.

    Super 8 motels are part of Wyndham, I have stayed at the Super 8 in Pierre, SD every year that I have gone out pheasant hunting. Days Inn too, I have stayed at one of those close to my deer lease.

    Walmart sets age of 21 to buy firearms, ammunition

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...ms-ammunition/

    NEW YORK – Walmart announced Wednesday that it will no longer sell firearms and ammunition to people younger than 21 and would also remove items resembling assault-style rifles from its website.

    The move comes after ****’s Sporting Goods announced earlier in the day that it would restrict the sale of firearms to those 21 and older. It didn’t mention ammunition. ****’s also said it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles, and its CEO took on the National Rifle Association by demanding tougher gun laws.

    Walmart said its decision came after the company reviewed its firearm sales policy in light of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people. The teenage gunman used an AR-15 rifle. It said it takes “seriously our obligation to be a responsible seller of firearms” and also emphasized its background of serving “serving sportsmen and hunters.”

    I am not really clear on ow this boycotting companies that have cut ties with the NRA works. If you do business with any of those companies and you stop using them, you would be spending your money with companies that NEVER supported the NRA? Is that really achieving anything?

    Naturally, if you never used their goods or services anyhow, then you can't really "boycott" them.

    For a lot of folks, Wally-whirled is the most convenient source for food and other essentials. I'm grateful to be able to choose to shop elsewhere. Really, though, the reason I don't go into WalMart is because I don't want to witness other shoppers behaving terribly; that does nothing for my already-shitty opinion of humanity.

    Most companies don't side one way or the other on contentious issues, nor should they. When a company does the wrong thing, it's appropriate to let them know you won't be using their services or buying their products until they reverse their policy. The key, obviously, is to not endorse one side or the other and thus avoid boycotts.
    Hey Claire, are we still at that awkward stage?

    severing ties with the NRA in an anti-2A gesture is not the same as never having been affiliated with the NRA.

    I understand that but won't the symbolism be for you, or is it supposed to filter to the companies you boycott somehow? It seems to me like saying that you are going to boycott a certain actor's movies but you never did watch any of their movies to begin with... only different.

    Daniel Defense statement 3/9/18 ...

    Dear Friends,

    I need your help. I believe the Fix NICS Act (S. 2135), sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), is presently the only common sense approach to keeping firearms out of the hands of the wrong people.

    This bipartisan bill, which aims to keep firearms from being sold to criminals and other dangerous people, was introduced by U.S. SenatorJohn Cornyn of Texas. All provisions of this bill have already been voted on and passed in the U.S. House of Representatives. While the bill has enough votes to pass the Senate, we must put pressure on our representatives until the President puts pen to paper.

    Our Senators, by passing the Fix NICS Act, can take logical steps TODAY to improve background checks through the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). By doing so, states would not only be required to, but would be held accountable for not complying with new reporting procedures which would ensure background checks are complete and reliable. The Fix NICS Act would:

    – Mandate federal agencies to report criminal convictions to the Attorney General
    – Require reporting of select mental health records that prohibit the purchase of firearms (Fix NICS only seeks to require mental health records that fit current federal categories)
    – Hold states and federal agencies accountable for failing to upload records

    Here’s how you can help.

    1.) Send an Email to Your Representatives at: http://bit.ly/2FFsmg0
    2.) Share this Post & Tag Your Representatives in the Comments

    Together, we can get this thing passed.

    – Marty Daniel
