Salesforce Embraces Radical Gun Control

Published

on

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.
