On May 30, 2019 software provider Salesforce announced that it will no longer have business ties with entities that sell certain firearms or firearms accessories.
Salesforce updated its Acceptable Use and External Facing Services Policy to ban anyone who uses their software from selling virtually all semi-automatic rifles and a bulk of other semi-automatic firearms.
The Free Beacon reported on the specifics of this ban:
The policy outlines the kind of legal firearms and firearms accessories that cannot be sold using the company’s software. Those include any semiautomatic firearm that can accept a detachable magazine and any of the following features: “thumbhole stock, folding or telescoping stock, grenade launcher or flare launcher, flash or sound suppressor, forward pistol grip, pistol grip (in the case of a rifle) or second pistol grip (in the case of a pistol), barrel shroud.
The much-maligned AR-15 falls under this ban, along with a lot of other modern rifle variants. Further, ammo magazines that are able to hold more than 10 rounds are also banned under this new policy. Magazines that fit this description are generally the standard for most handguns and rifles in America.
Salesforce’s new anti-gun policy also tackles accessories:
The policy further bans the sale of flash suppressors—which also come standard on most modern rifles—threaded barrels capable of accepting flash or sound suppressors, thumbhole stocks, blueprints for so-called ghost guns, and a number of other firearm accessories or parts.
Salesforce is no small corporation, having a net worth of around $120 billion. Its co-CEO Marc Benioff forked over a million dollars to the anti-gun group March for Our Lives. Benioff also put out a call for AR-15 bans not too long ago.
This latest form of corporate gun control is part of a new trend that gun controllers have embraced in recent years. Traditionally, they’ve used federal and state level activism to pursue their agenda. Although they are still using the latter, they are ineffective with the former given Republican control of the White House and Senate.
Companies like Dick’s Sporting Goods have already implemented their own anti-gun policies in the wake of mass shootings. Other corporate oligarchs are pushing for legislation such as universal gun registration.
Pro-gun advocates are facing new kinds of threats that will require them to adapt. The tactics of yesteryear will not be enough to beat these new threats.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America
However, there’s a catch.
Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”
During an interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.
“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”
In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.
“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”
The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.
Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.
“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED conference.
Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.
During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.
Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.
Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.
“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.
In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.
“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”
Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.
As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.
Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
