Leading up to the 2020 Election, The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms began an project to list all companies and their CEO’s who support “Gun Control” initiatives and legislation or have anti-Second Amendment policies in place within their companies. As the Biden-Harris regime ramps up their plans and threats of executive action against American’s Second Amendment Rights and Congress pushes HR 127 from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a thinly veiled gun confiscation bill, it’s critical that the American people know what companies are siding against them in support of the leftist’s plans.
CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb made a statement on the occasion of adding fashion icon Gucci to the listing,
“We were reminded that Gucci donated $500,000 to the anti-gun March for Our Lives group started three years ago, and quickly was co-opted by the gun prohibition lobby.”
“When we started this project last year,” Gottlieb recalled, “we were actually surprised, and in some cases disappointed, at some of the businesses we added to the list. We discovered several brand name businesses and corporate leaders who evidently have a nefarious agenda to limit gun rights. Their current and potential patrons should have the knowledge of what their hard earned dollars are actually funding.”
Gottlieb made sure to emphasize that this is not a “cancel culture” phenomenon as the CCRKBA is “not calling for a boycott of these companies,” Gottlieb said. “Businesses and the people who own them can support whatever kind of philosophy they want, and gun owning consumers can likewise not spend any money with those firms. Let the marketplace decide. Over 100 million American gun owners represent a sizeable consumer bloc, and they will decide where they spend their money.” This is a group of people who make long-term financial plans surrounding their plans to purchase $1,000+ firearms and munitions, suffice to say they are long-term, responsible, effective and discerning consumers.
However, Gottlieb and the committee do have a message about voting with your dollars and supporting the companies who support your rights.
“We encourage people buy products from companies they can count on to not support efforts aimed at curtailing constitutional rights,” he explained. “By providing this information, we hope gun owning consumers are making reasonable decisions about which businesses to patronize. This might convince some businesses to re-think their core values.”
