Corporate oligarchs are calling for more gun control.
With the U.S. House expected to vote Wednesday on universal gun registration bill H.R. 8, four CEOs signed a letter urging Congress to spearhead this legislation.
Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS’s shoes, has joined the anti-gun frenzy. At first, TOMS’s board of directors debated whether the CEO should be involved with political issues as controversial as gun control.
Mycoskie said “everyone was very concerned about us doing something like this” and was somewhat hesitant to take on this fight.
However, the board eventually embraced the gun control hysteria, as Mycoskie noted:
“But ultimately we recognized that this is an opportunity for us to really be a leader in business and to show our customers that we are engaged in the issues that matter most to them.”
Mycoskie joined the CEOs of Levi Strauss, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and RXT Realty in signing this letter calling for the U.S. to pass H.R. 8, legislation that would put the U.S. one step closer towards gun registration.
Instead of being upfront about the legislation’s true intentions, the CEOs wrote:
“… we are writing to you because we have a responsibility and obligation to stand up for the safety of our employees, customers and all Americans in the communities we serve across the country….
Mycoskie recognizes that roughly 12 percent of his customer base won’t buy his company’s shoes due to his anti-gun stances. Nevertheless, Mycoskie remains firm in his anti-gun ways stating that his company “lost some customers by doing this, but I think we also strengthened our relationship in a way that was far greater than whatever we lost.”
Scott Rechler, the CEO of RXR Realty, has also become a gun control advocate and believes that it is “important for CEOs to take a greater level of social responsibility.”
It remains to be seen if these statements will hurt Mycoskie and Rechler’s companies, but if Dick’s Sporting Goods’s experience is any indicator, it may not turn out so well for these gun control-supporting companies. When Dick’s decided to stop selling AR-15s and banned individuals under 21 from buying firearms, sales plummeted.
Ever since the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, gun controllers nationwide have come out in force trying to pass gun control legislation in state legislatures across the country. From 2016 to 2018, Democrats were completely shut out of power at the federal level, so they turned to state legislatures and the corporate boardroom to undermine gun rights.
Corporations are continuing this gun control crusade by cutting ties with firearms vendors and gun-related organizations. This recent announcement shows that corporate interests won’t relent.
It’s time that gun owners fight back by hitting corporations where it hurts them most—their pocketbooks.
OUTRAGEOUS: Milwaukee Man Who was Defending His Home from a Leftist Mob is Arrested
A Milwaukee man was arrested on September 14, 2020 for simply making an attempt to defend his home from a leftist mob.
At first, agitators launched a demonstration at a neighbor’s home claiming that he was racist. When the man eventually drew out his gun for fear of his life, the police were immediately called and the man would later be arrested.
A Twitter user Kitty Shackleford reported on this story.
A crowd gathered around the man’s house and laid out a Black Lives Matter banner on the street with a BLM fist cutout also present. In addition, an American flag was seen hanging close to the man’s front door.
The man’s allegedly racist behavior was drawn from a 15 second video that children shot and posted to Facebook.
Before the police arrived, the gathering in front of the man’s house had a party feel to it with loud music and children and adults dancing in the streets. A good portion of the people outside took out their cell phones and started recording the man’s home.
The confrontation became heated when the activists directly called out the man. The agitators then shined their lights on the man’s home, which had an American flag hanging next to the front door and an “all aboard the Trump Train” sign.
After the activists turned off the music, they started yelling on a megaphone, “Hey Pete!”
As the agitators yelled, the man can be seen inside, holding his gun.
When it became clear that the man was ready to defend himself and his house, the group of agitators called the cops on the homeowner. The activists continued the party after the man was taken away.
This event was organized on Facebook by Vaun L. Mayes, a local activist who was recently arrested on burglary charges. His charges were then dropped by Milwaukee County District Attorney John T. Chisholm, a Democrat.
Mayes planned the gathering in front of his neighbor’s house and was able to collect donations to organize this disturbance.
Vivek Saxena of BizPac Review pointed out that Mayes is also currently facing federal charges for allegedly “plotting to firebomb a Milwaukee police station after the Sherman Park unrest in 2016.”
In present-day America, the right to self-defense is becoming less respected by the day. Even worse, radical left-wing mobs receive protection from the state and are allowed to wreak havoc. But when decent Americans attempt to stand up for themselves, they get pulverized.
This is anarcho-tyranny at its worst.
I'm still trying to figure out whose house this is. Milwaukee, WI – seems to be outside of a house who BLM is saying pointed a gun at them. The title of the video is "We still lit – This goes out to all the racist neighbors out there" so I assume it is just a local "racist" 1/3 pic.twitter.com/84X6BDQwnD
