2ACheck Rating: “B” – Amazon.com is mostly gun-friendly.
Amazon.com is mostly gun-friendly for an online retailer not directly involved in gun-related business. They sell everything a gun owner could want, except guns and ammo. They sell books, holsters, scopes, clothing, part, accessories and just about every other item you could imagine. Their Amazon Local listings offer firearms training classes, unlike Groupon which stopped listing all gun related deals after being pressured by anti-gun forces.
Here is an excert from their prohibited items list:
“Firearms and Weapons – includes ammunition, guns, rifles, shotguns, pistols, other firearms, knives (automatic, spring-loaded knives, throwing, etc.), brass knuckles, or other weapons.”
While we really appreciate being able to shop for most of our shooting and hunting products at Amazon.com we do have concerns about Amazon’s intentions when we read accounts like this of Amazon demanding vendors remove items.
We are also concerned that Amazon may be donating money to causes such as gun buybacks like this in which Amazon reportedly donated $30,000 in Amazon.com gift cards to be used to finance a gun buyback.
Amazon is not perfect, but when you compare them to the competition they look great. There are plenty of online/tech companies that refuse to be associated with guns at all. To their credit, selling to the gun community has probably helped their bottom line significantly.
