    No plan here, so it's not in activism. I'm just venting over Frys Electronics. Still have a no firearms sign (apparently you can bring in other weapons). Spoke with store manager who was just rediculous. Tried corporate who could care less.

    So I made my purchase elsewhere. Who are you boycotting?

    no one currently......the one good thing about MA is that concealed carriers are so rare...that no place thinks to put up "no gun" signs. :D

    But I think the wife won't stop going to Babies-R-Us, which IIRC, is the same company. :banghead:

    Company policies like this don't carry the weight of law here... although the language in the legislation has confused some folks. I boycott a number of other companies though, but it's not related to RKBA issues.

    This idea is much bigger than Gun Rights for me...
    McDonalds - but only because their food is so bad.
    Paypal
    Ebay
    Pizza Hut
    Walgreens
    Home Depot
    and as much as possible: Wal-Mart

    Support your local gun store, hardware store, farmers and craftsmen and stay out of the big boxes if you can - Corporate America doesn't give a !@#$ about you.

    Could not agree more.

    Niether will mine. The funny part is that you can not CCW in Illinois, yet they still have the sign on the door. I guess its aimed at the criminals and LEOs :rolleyes:. They think a robber will give a damn about a sign and police called in to stop a robbery must use harsh language as a weapon........After all no exceptions right???

    I'm boycotting my local drug store because of gun policy. Switched to a national chain. If the little guy wants to shoot themselves in the foot, who am I to argue.

    I don't bother boycotting anymore because far too many establishments tick me off. Mostly, it's things like understaffing. If I boycotted due to that one thing I'd shop practically nowhere.

    Not everyone can afford to shop at the local hardware store, or the local grocer, or the local electronics store. Go to your Mom & Pop store and spend $50, then go to Walmart and spend $50, and see which store gets you more product for your money.

    I recently had to go to my local hardware store to buy lawn-bags in a crunch and spent over $4 for 5 bags. Home Depot has the same bags for $1.88. If the markup on cardboard bags is over 200%, think about how much they are marking up things like tools, carpet, or paint. I also just recently bought a new cell phone and needed a case for it. Spend $30 on one at the cell phone store or go on eBay and buy one for $3? Hmm...decisions decisions.....don't even get into car chargers or extra chargers for the house. Those 'local' stores want $20 each for those and I can get them for pennies online.

    And in all honesty, just because they are 'local' doesn't mean they give a crap about you. They are in it for the money just as much as the 'big box' stores

    I don't boycott anything. I shop where I want, I buy what I want. It's simply a personal choice. Complaining to the manager at these corporate stores isn't going to get you anywhere because they don't make the decisions. And complaining to the manager at the local store probably won't get you anywhere because the rules are setup the way they are for a reason.

    InBev, since they pushed hard for the pro-ban side in Brazil's gun referendum a few years ago and bought up Anheuser-Busch, which had been a major force in Missouri getting concealed carry.

    I'm not boycotting any businesses over gun policy at the moment. In my area the only places that seem to have no loaded firearms signs are gun stores. Go figure.

    Walmart for their stunt in NH and their ideas of inspiring loyalty in workers.
    Starbucks because of their tattoo policies.

    That's about it though.

    Paypal

    If it takes longer for me to figure out how to get my bank account sync'd up to their stupid website than it does for me to snailmail the money where it needs to go, then we have a problem.

    In the long run, we can't afford not to. Unfortunately, we'll all be in servitude to China before some folks think past their checkbook. Walmart is destructive to our economy and our way of life in so many ways but as long as you get to save a few dollars...... "Save money, live better". Ha, ha, ha......all the way into oblivion. :rolleyes:

    My church! I discovered they were giving money in support of gun control and I quit them cold. Since then I discovered they were supporting a whole bunch of evil stuff I could never go along with and I'm openly antagonistic against them now.

    Before moderators think about shutting this down, let's consider that peaceful efforts, like boycotts, are effective ways for pro-gun forces to counter anti-gun institutions, establisments, and efforts. I do not believe this type of pro-gun activism to be negative or off topic.

    We have met the enemy and he is us..........

    Unbelievable.

    Folks on here advocate boycotting WalMart....the largest gun retailer in America.

    The Brady Campaign says thank you for your efforts.:barf:

    I just carry in anyways. In Missouri, the most they can do, at first, is ask you to leave. If it ever gets that far, then I guess I'd boycott them.

    Luckily, I'm very good at the concealed part and no one ever knows.

    I agree in TX if you don't have the famous 51% sign or a legal 30-06 sign I just ingore the sign and go on in and do business. It is CCW for a reason and that reason is so folks don't know you got one.

    I use paypal cause they work and I get tons of gun stuff off Ebay.
