The Second Amendment Check Boycott List

All companies we boycott have received a 2ACheck rating of “F” for their lack of respect for the rights of gun owners.  Your experience with some of these companies will vary based on location, however, the boycott is based on the corporate policy toward responsible gun owners.

We believe guns in the hands of good people make everyone safer.  We encourage freedom loving Americans to boycott anti-gun companies until they improve their policy.  Please share this page.

We also strongly recommend everyone know the firearms laws applicable in their own state, and states they travel through.  We recommend something like the Traveler’s Guide to Firearms Laws.

 Boycott List 2014.09.22

**Feb 28, 2018** Add DICK’S SPORTING GOODS to the list of businesses supporters of The Second Amendment should never patronize again.  They were given a second chance after their hints at stopping rifle sales after the Newtown, CT shooting in 2012.  With today’s announcement, they are dead to us….FOREVER.

We are attempting to provide detailed rationale for the entries on this list.  Some, but not all have been provided.  We are working to get the rest updated ASAP.  Click on the name of a company below to learn valuable information about the company, its policy and other brands under the same corporate umbrella.

We provide you with contact information for every company on the list. We encourage you to contact them for the following reasons:

1) Verify for yourself that we have accurately described their behavior

2) Inform the company that they have lost your business

3) Encourage them to change their policy to be more respectful of the rights of gun owners if they want to earn your business.  Our long-term goal should be to try to influence them to respect our rights.  Never be rude.  Always be polite.

  1. The inclusion of Outback on this list surprises me. I have a CHL and live in Texas. Texas law allows businesses to deny concealed carry on their premises, but requires that some very specific signage be prominently displayed in that case. Outback is one of my regular stops, and I have never seen that signage displayed at one of their restaurants. I routinely exercise my permit in Outback.

    This appears to be a contradiction of the corporate policy quoted above.

    • We are finding that corporate policies are almost never enforced uniformly at the store level. We provide the information and let you all decide how you want to handle it. We believe that if the corporate policy is anti-gun, supporters of the Second Amendment should not patronize their businesses.

      • FALSE! Any reading of the article will show that the specific Outback Restaurants in question are under a franchise–NOT operated by corporate Outback. The same is true for many of the other restaurants and businesses (but not all) in that list.

          • They will find out in the post mortem… a little late I’d say

        • And……as soon as that crazy person comes in to shoot up the place…they are taking you out first…. or when they police come, they dont know who the bad guy is so again…you got shot……..people please start being smarter with your lives….holy shit.

            Any proof of this happening? I’ve OC’d face to face with people that didn’t even notice many, MANY times; yet, you’re here trying to tell me that both criminals and police (in the heat of the moment) are going to automatically [autoMAGICALLY] “get me first”.

            Perhaps instead of calling us to being “smarter with your lives”, you should get a life. A life built on experience and not just what you ‘read’ online.

            Your scenario is purely based on fear of what you think you MIGHT see [and nothing happens] vs thinking you’re safe [and it DOES happen].

            I feel bad for you that you think anyone with a visible gun, carried in a non-threating way [outside of an "authority figure"] is automatically bad.

          • Catmando there is No such thing as openly carrying a gun in a non threatening way!!!

          • Which is why it hasn’t happened.

            “Catmando there is No such thing as openly carrying a gun in a non threatening way!!!”

            So, why do you claim there is no way to open carry without making a declaration of one’s purpose or intention to work injury to the person, property, or rights of another? How can you claim that my having gun in a holster takes away anyone’s right or ability to act in voluntary manner?

          • Catmando — last week, here in Amarillo, a gunman took people hostage at a local business. One of the hostages managed to jump the gunman and take the gun. When the police arrived, they shot the good guy five times.

          • So while an active shooter is in the store, dougie will be standing patiently with his gun holstered when the police arrive.

        • I agree with the law enforcement portion but to me open carrying just puts a target on you! The less anyone knows the better!!

          Reply

        • I went to a class ran by the local county police. They advised to not open carry only conceal carry. They said you would be taken out first if the bad guy saw you had a gun. I see no reason to let everyone know that I have a gun on me. I only conceal carry.

          • Catmando is 100 % right, perps dont look for guns when they attack. just watch a dozen or so attack videos. They close distance way to fast to observe someone that closely. Theres no support that it paints a target on your back, but if it did…:
            I really hope i am the first target. Usually because that means my wife and kids wont be the first hit. I know i know, i am an intimidating dick, with an ego to feed. so my wife can have time to send out some follow up…

            Open carry allows for safer carry, none of my ccw holsters have serpa ratings, my open carry i can take a beating and fall on my gun, no one is getting it, and its “secure.” Its not falling off of me. I have ran with my iwb, and had a gun fall. No pocket carry, yeah that’s not safe, and no gun in my back when i need my hands up front. it is superior in every way.

            Steve B, my state its the opposite, you must have a ccw, before you can open carry.

            I usually only open carry when i am driving. Since ccw laws require to conceal even in a vehicle… open carry “technicality” allows me to have a visible gun on my body in my car. Although no one can see it. Its safety.

            Most people don’t know the difference between an open carry and a plain closed officer.. (federal agent, firemarshal, ect… ) when it is done out of necessity.

            I am not saying there aren’t nut-bags, but there are anti-gun and pro-gun nut-bags just the same, and they are indeed both the problem… Most of us fall in the middle, and can get along. Everyone should be able to rationalize for their own safety, what they do to ensure that safety… gun, pepperspray, teargas, or rape whistle…

          • What state do you live in where you have to have a CCW before you can OC? Most states, that I know of, allow OC on only a drivers license, however, it gets real tiresome to get the gun out of a locked case everytime you get out of the vehicle and then lock it back up in a case when you want to leave.

          • Dale, April 21, 2016 at 11:57 AM

      • I live in a full 2nd amendment recognition state and we open carry here as well as conceal carry. Nobody freaks out about it and it is perfectly normal to see everywhere we go. Govt bldgs and banks are obviously not acceptable places to carry, but in the general public guns are a norm. We still hunt for food and hunter safety courses are inexpensive and offered several times a year. It really is about responsible gun ownership and education. I love Kansas and would recommend this state to anyone.

      • Bobbie. Concealed carry is NOT for intimidating bullies. I carry for the same reason the police carry. Not to protect you or anyone else. It is for MY OWN protection. The thing everyone who carries needs to know is that when the gun is pulled, you have 2 choices, shoot to kill, or be killed. And when you shoot someone, be prepared to have your life change in oh so many ways.

If you open carry you are the immediate target. Not to mention children and certain folks just don’t feel comfortable around guns. Nor should we have to go everywhere with one obviously attached. I own a weapon and plan to get a CHL. Never would I advertise that I am armed.

          • My last post was directed to “Manx”. Now to you: What’s this “Right to feel safe” you speak of?

            Sounds as arbitrary as your claim that “Really folks smoking was banned from restaurants because of the harmful effects of second hand smoke”.

            Proof of either is a good start.

          • A-FREAKIN-MEN! And again I say AMEN!

          • You do not have a right to feel safe (as if the right to a feeling means anything semi intelligent at all). You do not have a right to NOT see a gun. You do not have a right to dictate which of my actions are “self serving”.
            I however DO have the right to bear arms as enshrined in the constitution.
            It is a sad life YOU live seeking illusory safety at the expense of another person’s ability to defend themselves or their family.
            You are an ideal thrall for the state and an absolute puss.

          • How about the rights of those that carry concealed and don’t feel safe in our current world? I think those that don’t want to be around guns infringe on my rights as guaranteed by the constitution. Learn a little about guns and even get your own license. I think you will be a lot happier if you knew that you had the chance to save yourself or your family in a bad situation.

          • No one has the right to feel safe. That is nowhere in the Bill of Rights or Constitution. You have the right to life, liberty(choosing to open carry or not), and the PURSUIT of happiness. You are not guaranteed happiness. If someone open carrying makes you unhappy, tough. That is their right as a human being. You are free to leave their presence if you think that will make you happier. Telling them they can’t choose their method of liberty is infringing on their right to life and liberty.

          • So if I “feel safe” by open carrying a firearm, having used a firearm to save my life, then you are taking away my right to feel safe by banning open carry.

            I entered a convenience store, three people ran out after one saw me, pointed at my open carry firearm to the other two. Two days later, the same three were on the news for robbing and shooting the clerk at a convenience store down the street.

          • And that’s the problem with you self righteous snowflakes complaining about open carry. It’s you that are infringing on the rights of others. It’s you that shove your stupid little feelings onto others. The 2nd says shall not be infringed. That means shall not be denied or regulated or restricted. No one has any emotional rights to feel anything. Doesn’t exist. You are responsible for your feelings & no one else.

        • So what you’re saying is that in a crisis, you’d shoot anyone armed despite them not threatening you because of… the ‘children and certain folks’?

          I hope you never take that gun out of what I presume to be a “safe space” [until you mature] because your logic is flawed; you have NO experience with either CC or OC… wow

The reason you can think of so few shootings that were stopped by a “good guy with a gun” is because even when people with guns are there, they are hardly ever able to stop the shooting. Try participating in a simulated shooting event and see how you would do before you suggest that as the solution.

            You miss using your words,there’s a difference between a person’s rights and a person’s choice.You do not have the right not to be around someone who’s open carry,you have the choice of being there or not.I have the right to open carry but I choose to conceal, you have the choice of knowing or not knowing if I’m armed or not.

          • Here is the GIANT flaw in your logic. Conceal Carry holders are about 5% of the legal gun owning population. so in effect, you are a. completely unaware that people are around you with a gun pretty much everyday. and b. If you think you have the right to “not be around them” then you must only have that right at home, by yourself. Progressive PC idiots are the ones screwing this country up because you think your “feelings” translate into “rights’ AND you try to remove others true rights just because you disagree with them.

          • Very flawed logic. Criminals do not open carry. Open carry automatically draws attention to you from LE. That is the last thing a criminal wants. They all conceal, illegally. As such, you don’t know they have a firearm. If someone is open carrying, they are more likely to be a good, upstanding person who decided they didn’t want to go to the hassle of concealing that day. It is a hassle. You have to design your whole wardrobe around your choice of carry to ensure it stays concealed and then be on your toes the whole day so that you don’t move in a way that uncovers the firearm. I would love to have the option of OC because in a few situations, it would be a lot more convenient for a short run to the store or something of the sort. I would still choose to conceal primarily because the element of surprise is a tactical advantage. You do NOT have a right to choose what other people do around you, so long as they are obeying the law. It open carrying is legal where you are at, you just suck it up, or go elsewhere. Your temporary, personal comfort does not supersede someone else’s Constitutional Rights.

          • What criminal open carries? I would think they would hide their weapon until they were ready to use it. They wouldn’t want to advertise that they have a gun and come under scrutiny if they want to go unrecognized.

    • I know gun laws vary from state to state, but in Texas you cannot carry in an establishment that makes money off alcohol sales. Not a bad idea, eh? or would that be an infringement of your 2nd Ammendment? Your place is called “Bar and Grill” so I’m assuming you serve beer (or more) along with your burgers, correct? What’s better than mixing alcohol and driving? Mixing alcohol and firearms! Should we implement a new law dictating a maximum blood alcohol level to carry? Should we hold the establishment responsible for overserving a patron who is carrying? Better yet, have a few then jump in your car (gun in holster, of course) and go have a pleasant conversation with the nice guy who just cut you off. Yee Haw!

      • Before you start running off at the mouth and assuming people are concealed carrying while drinking, which is illegal by the way, check your laws and check your facts. In Michigan we are allowed to open carry in a place that serves alcohol as long as we have a concealed pistol license. But any damn fool that wants to carry a weapon and drink is just that a fool! If and when they are caught they lose their license. You people on this page are astronomically dumb. You run off at the mouth thinking you know the law when obviously you don’t. So take your foot out of your mouth and learn what you’re talking about before you stick your other foot in it. Damn I hate stupid people smh

        • Thanks for proving my point Dale…and take a look in the mirror. You apparently are aware of YOUR state laws, but not others and are projecting that to others. However, you are LEGALLY allowed to drink and carry in other states…appartently even in Michigan…and I agree with you…STUPID! So, to come to some mutual agreement, should we agree that anyone in a public establishment that is carrying AND drinking should have their CHL revoked, guns confiscated, etc. or is that still an infringement of their 2nd Ammendment rights? Should your definition of STUPID be allowed to carry? Becasue that is NOT the rule in every state that allows it.

          Reply

      • Targaman85, your statement is “almost” correct. Texas law states that if an establishment sells alcohol AND makes 51% or more of their revenue from that alcohol, then they must post the 51% sign at the door. In that instance, a CHL holder in Texas cannot carry in the establishment.

        Further, if (as a CHL holder) I am carrying in a food/restaurant establishment with a bar area, I am NOT allowed to sit AT the bar. I can sit IN the bar area, just not at the bar.

        I have been to several restaurants that had the 51% sign posted behind the bar rather than at the entry (which is incorrect per State law). In those cases, I walked in, hob-nobbed and networked, and then 45 minutes later went to the bar for a fresh soda or tea. Seeing the 51% sign behind the bar (rather than legally posted) did not encourage me to leave.

        Every states laws have their own nuances. I never travel without learning what my options are.

  3. How about HOSPITALS!!!

    I work for a major company, Novant, that prohibits its employees from even having their weapons in our cars even if we have our CC permits. Also, they even refuse to arm their guards in most of their facilities since they feel that if they need more protection than a couple of unarmed guards can provide then they could just call 911. If I was a patient, I would like to know that I am SAFE while being treated. After all, Emergency Rooms are actually the most dangerous workplace in America. Gang violence follows them to the ER and wouldn’t you like to know that those gang bangers aren’t the only ones packing in the waiting room? If I was a Public Safety Officer at our hospital, I wouldn’t feel safe at all. We have had so many to be stabbed on the job, shouldn’t they be able to at least protect themselves? If not, give me a chance to run no further than my car when the Sh*t hits the fan to protect myself!!!

So Sandy Hook molds your mind to the theory (politically correct) that all weapons are bad & evil. when in fact it is the opposite you have a psycho young man who wants to kill children and ultimately and conveniently does just that according to the feds he is found dead as is his mother a second gunman is seen running is captured and that is the last we hear of him? It is a tragedy for the children and families of those that were slain that day, Everyone felt for the families and grieved along with them it was a worldwide event. Obama and his minions have milked this thing for all it is worth to destroy our constitutional right and they do think they are winning, but they are not going to win without a fight Obama is destroying our military which I can not support he is building a secret police,

        • Berne you couldn’t be any further from the truth. It has been proven where there is less legally owned firearms there is consequently more crime. Ask yourself if an assailant is armed with a gun do you really want to be a helpless sheep? We who carry are not paranoid but prepared for what could happen. Yeah the chances are unlikely of anything actually happening but so are the chances of winning the lottery. Ever heard the statement don’t bring a knife to a gun fight, well I definitely don’t want to be at that disadvantage if something were to happen. The Police can’t be there instantly to save you they will show up to clean up and investigate the aftermath which could include scraping you off the floor. I don’t see how you always accuse 2nd Amendment rights activists militant and rude when almost every single time the left uses obscenities to accuse us.

  5. In the case of CPK, they only say they don’t allow the OPEN carrying of firearms, which I don’t do anyway. If I’m packing heat (which I don’t always do), it’s a CCW. That’s just my personal preference, I don’t feel comfortable wearing it open, even though I live in an open-carry state (Washington).

  6. Another company to add is Cintas corporation

  7. This is an informative listing, but with the various restaurants some, by state laws, may have to prohibit firearms because of alcohol related laws. Some states prohibit CCW in restaurants that have bars attached (ie Hooters, T.G.I. Fridays), so it is a moot point in some states. As well as with banks, which whether or not they support the 2nd amendment or not, many states restrict CCW and open carry in banks.

    • We do not rate a company based on the laws. We rate them based on their policy. Even if carry in a TGIF is not legal in your state anyway, would you want to give them your business if they discriminate against your rights at a corporate level? Would you want to enter a dangerous gun free zone? Part of this is about keeping ourselves safe, and the other pert is about refusing to reward anti-gun companies with our business.

If the government(Democrats) had never started using marriage licenses to prevent black people from marrying white people, this issue would have never existed.

        Abortion kills a child, and as we all know, a person’s liberties end where they interfere with the rights of another, with life being the most important.

        Healthcare is not a right, it is a commodity. If something costs money, it is a commodity. Food is pretty important to, but in reality, things cost money.

  10. Y’all have to settle down for a second. First, I am a huge 2nd Amendment person and have weapons and have been to combat. Second, do research on some of these business’s before you put certain labels.

    For instance, California Pizza Kitchen gives a free pizza and coupon to come back for another free on on Vet’s day. Home Depot is not on this list, but, it bans weapons. It also builds homes for vets and is one of the largest employers of vets. Regal in my neighborhood gives a military discount. Those are examples.

    In some of the places I know, I wouldn’t want a bunch of foreigners or thugs carrying guns in my place either. I would like to see some changes allowing CCP holders able to carry. However, as with most of life, a few bad apples ruin it for all of us. Furthermore, I actually see it as a problem with some pro-carry groups. The group that meets at the diner near me look like a bunch of clowns who shouldn’t own water guns. Is it their right? Of course, but, they are intentionally being belligerent about it. They look like a bunch of idiots who couldn’t be in the military, now, trying to play Red Dawn. And that’s half the problem. I know so many who have gone out and spent a fortune on weapons and can’t disassemble a single shot shotgun (pause…ok you got that).
    I am friends with the owner of the now famous restaurant giving the discount for carrying in there. That’s great, it is announced up front that it is weapon’s friendly. Just because a business has to have a blanket rule disallowing weapons doesn’t mean they are less patriotic or infringing on your rights. It sucks that laws or rules exist, but, they exist because of stupid people and bad guys. It’s crap that society has evolved into this, but, it has. Wanna change it? Vote and write. But, don’t assume that everyone carrying a weapon has a ccp, adequate training, skills. Yes, It is their right. I get it. Just pause.

    • Jeff, thanks for your comments and for your service to our country.

      We have done quite a bit of research on these companies policies regarding firearms. There are many other dimensions by which we could evaluate them, but we choose to maintain our core focus of supporting the Second Amendment. While we respect the troops, they are no more important that the citizens of this country. There may be companies out there that publicly support the troops, but also refuse all of us our right to keep and bear arms in their establishments.

      It is frankly irrelevant to our cause if CPK gives free pizza, since they ban firearms. Home Depot does not ban weapons, we confirmed this with corporate and Regal does, we confirmed that too.

      We are focused on respecting the wishes of companies that refuse to do business with us by shopping elsewhere. You seem to be motivated by their level of support for vets, and that is fine. That’s just not the benchmark we use to evaluate companies. We try to research each company and provide the results to the 2A supporters so they can make their own decisions about where they spend their money.

            You are correct, I am unfit for military duty. I’m just not. However, I am happy to pay taxes to pay for those that are willing and more capable to do the job. There are many things that I pay people to do that I simply don’t have time or knowledge to do. That’s why I prefer to pay someone else to carry the guns as well. I’ve hunted and owned guns when I was younger, didn’t do anything for me and I’ve found more satisfying ways to spend my time and money. I sleep just fine without a gun by my pillow. If you need it, I don’t want to take away your gun. However, I think we can agree that there are some people who should NOT have guns. They may think they need them, they may think that becasue they have a CHL and have shot off a few rounds they are prepared to use it, but they are not if the time actually comes to draw down on a breathing human in a tense moment. I’ve been there and seen “buck fever” and I imagine that it would be different in a real world situation and bystanders could be killed as easily as the intended target. I disagree with the person above that said “those that carry are at one with their gun”. He/she may be. Their immediate circle may be, but not EVERYONE. There are people carrying becasue they are scared. I get it…but they are still not prepared to pull it and use it properly when needed.

    • Julie, excellent point – couldn’t agree more.

      We are striving to provide credible and accurate information, and thus always make every effort to confirm a company’s policy before we publish a rating. We make a good faith effort to get in direct contact with a knowledgeable representative from the company (harder than it sounds), and make sure we get a clear and complete answer before we rate them. We have dozens of unconfirmed ratings that we have not published because we can’t get a concrete answer from the company. We do not publish unconfirmed ratings and would never recommend a BOYCOTT based on a hunch or hearsay. Frankly, we never hear back from most companies, and so we haven’t published any rating for those.

      We also occasionally open up a discussion on our Facebook page, when we are uncertain about a particular company, to hear what the real world experience has been for you all when doing business with a that company. It has resulted in us correcting our rating or digging a little deeper a couple of times.

      If a company is on our BOYCOTT list, they have either told us their policy directly, gone on the record publicly as having some form of anti-gun policy or we have observed a very convincing body of evidence to support our rating. We also provide the supporting information for you to see.

      In addition, we provide company contact information and encourage everybody to contact them to a) confirm the policy for themselves and b) communicate with the company about your feelings on the matter.

      Finally, we present this information to the 2A community as what we hope is objective information to AID IN YOUR OWN RESEARCH. We encourage everyone to do their own research and apply their own personal gauge of whether or not a company deserves their business. Kind of like Foxnews says, “we report, you decide.”

      I hope that addresses your concerns.

    To whom it may concern at Staples,

    I was informed about your policy on 2nd amendment rights and was disappointed. While I respect your safety concerns, I’m sure if you looked into it you would find that lawfully carrying law abiding citizens actually increase the safety and decrease the crime rate of areas where 2nd amendment rights are not infringed. I hope you will look into it. While different states have different laws concerning open and concealed carry I would hope that after learning more about how our 2nd amendment being exercised actually makes us safer you would consider changing your policy so that your law abiding customers may do so in your stores. You may also find that a sign saying that you allow lawful carrying will also help deter criminal activity. Until then I respectfully feel that I should offer my business elsewhere. This is not a light decision. I prefer Staples to Office Max even though I receive better company discounts through them. I have found that Staples employees are much friendlier and more helpful. However, my inalienable rights must trump good service at this time.

  14. Add Turkey Hill Minit Marts to the list, and by extension the parent company Kroger. Their admitted policy is to abide by state and local laws regarding the carrying of firearms, but they prohibit their employees (eg. cashiers) from carrying ANY weapon while in uniform and on duty. Even a pocket knife is questionable.

    • I always find these policies intriguing. It makes no sense whatsoever to have a policy in place that bars employees from carrying and yet they allow the public to carry.

      Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like to give my money to businesses who deny me the right to protect my family. However, it seems to be an oxymoron that a company is effectively saying, “We don’t trust our employees with guns, but we trust the public.”

      These are the same employees responsible for manning the cash registers and stocking the merchandise. The vast majority of employees are honest, hardworking people, so why deny them the right to protect themselves? What if an armed thug comes in and demands all the cash in the registers? Who’s going to protect them, especially if it’s after-hours and only employees are there? They’re easy pickings.

      Another policy that makes me cringe is the “not only can you not have a a gun at work, but you can’t keep it in your locked car on company property either.” While I own a business, I also work full time for a major IT company. They have a strict weapons policy, and that includes MY car if it’s parked in the company parking lot. While one could argue that I could park next door or across the street, the area where the office building is located is pretty seedy–an area one could reasonably call “da hood.” The last thing I want to do is park my car, with a gun in it, in “da hood” so a thug can break into it and use my gun to commit a felony.

      I saw a video clip from Michigan United Conservation Clubs that indicated the Michigan Legislature is currently considering HB 4027 that would make in unlawful for companies to discipline employees for keeping firearms secured in vehicles on company property. If you live in Michigan, be sure to email, call or write your representative and senator and ask them to support HB 4027! The right of people to protect themselves shouldn’t stop at the company parking lot.

I’ve never seen a “no guns” sign, but here in Washington those signs are not legally binding anyway (you can walk right in and ignore the sign, and you’re not breaking any law). You have to be asked to leave and refuse before you’re doing something wrong.

    I OC every day and I’ve never been asked to leave anywhere I’ve gone, nor have I been asked to cover up… but then, I never go to malls or theaters because most of them do have policies against guns, and I’d rather not deal with their security staff.

        “I noticed your business listed on the Second Amendment Check’s “Boycott List” of businesses that don’t allow their customers to exercise their right to keep and bear arms. I am not sure if this is accurate or not, since I am a very frequent customer and I always openly carry a firearm while in your establishment. Will you confirm or deny your company’s policy regarding allowing customers to participate in legal activities in your restaurants? My decision to continue being one of your customers depends entirely on your response. Thank you.”

        I’d like to think that, since Jack in the Box is a franchise business, individual business owners are making this decision and it is not a company-wide policy. In that case, we should not punish the business owners who respect our rights because of the actions of those who do not.

However, if you can’t even understand what we are doing and why, well you’re probably not accustomed to critical thinking. Our methods come from a place founded in logic and fact, not emotions and feelings. For that reason it may be difficult for people like you to understand why we think good guys with guns make places safer, yes, even stores that sell overpriced baby furniture.

      We are law abiding citizens and are not a danger to anybody but criminals. Gun free zones do not make anyone safer because criminals don’t care about silly things like that when they have already made up their mind to commit a crime. So we choose to avoid gun free zones for our own safety, and because the companies have told us our business is not welcome there. Remember, we are not the ones picking the battle here. These companies have a policy that prohibits us from entering their business, so we are simply complying with their wishes and taking our business elsewhere.

    The Walmart in Palmyra also does not want the Business of People with Weapons – I was there talking to a Gentleman who I saw was carrying a Weapon on his Belt ( saw it poking out under his Jacket) and as I also carry so but usually have a longer Jacket that covers it I asked if he had any problems being called out for this.
    He opened his jacket to expose the left side where I saw his Badge; he was a State Trooper Investigator just stopped to pick up a few things on his way home.
    As we talked a little bit more a Manager from this store came up and asked to speak to him. This man then said that he was being Recorded by the Security Cams and needed to Leave right now because he had a Weapon on him and that he would be asked to not do any Business in this Store anymore because of his Presence with a Weapon was Disturbing to all who was in the Store.
    Even after he Identified himself as a Law Officer – He was told to leave because that was not a reason to bring a Weapon into the Store.
    About this time 2 Officers from the City of Newport showed up and Started to Smile as they Knew Who this Man was even after they Verified to this Manager the Truth he was still asked to leave.
    I also then Opened my Jacket and said to the Manager that I guess my Business was not wanted either, meanwhile a group of about 10 people had formed from which 3 more spoke up and also gave out to be CC Carriers and we all gave up doing Business there.
    Efforts from a few of us to get a Answer from Walmart HQ about this have remained unanswered now for 2 months.
    Sorry Company this Walmart

    • I do not believe that it is a company policy for Wal-mart and it’s other stores to prohibit CCW holders from carrying. I was in Sam’s Club and Wal-mart in my area and have had zero problem with carrying there, even when I have had to reach for something on a top shelf and had my pistol exposed while employees are standing there. Only thing said was to pull my shirt back down.

    • I also do not believe this is a company policy, merely a store manager’s ignorance. I carry openly at WalMart all the time and so do friends, and we’ve never even been confronted about it. Opencarry.org has a policy letter from them stating that they are neutral on the issue as a company.

      • We have contacted Wal-Mart/Sam’s Clubs and haven’t been able to get a response out of them yet. We’ll keep trying. It would seem they are at least “B” rating (gun friendly enough) by the look of things, but that’s totally unconfirmed right now.

    • I talked to a Walmart employee in the sporting goods/gun section & he stated the Walmart as a corporation does NOT have a ban gun policy. The managers can ask you to leave & either leave your firearm in your vehicle or not come back. But there is NO policy (according to an employee) for the business itself to prohibits guns……open carry just makes some people nervous

    • You don’t understand the point of this list. It is not to give you a list of places to avoid because they will ask you to leave, it’s a list of places not to give your money to. I hear this all the time about Costco: “Well I just conceal when I go there.” I don’t go there, on principle, conceal or not. Why would you support a business that doesn’t respect your rights?

          http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2010/sep/23/officer-deadly-shooting-says-man-pointed-gun-didnt/

          Don’t even go there and just “ignore their rules.” The link above is very, very much biased for Costco and the three police officers who murdered the customer (two shots to the front, five to the back.) Look into it some more when you go to this link for other sides of the truth.

          (If the officer in front of the deceased saw the victim pull his gun and then shot him twice for doing so, how could the officers behind the victim see that with enough justification to give him five more rounds into his back? Or did they just want to get in on the killing?)

          Reply

      • I’ve still never had a problem with carrying in Costco. I frequent several different Costco locations in WA, and neither my husband or I have been harassed for open carrying. We have actually been stopped by employees to chat about what we have and how they’d rather be out shooting than working. Maybe this is just more of a WA mentality?

      I hope you understand but I have decided to pause the use of Groupon for my daily deals. This is due to the fact that you, as an online retailer, have decided to censor the items that I can buy on your website. My right to buy guns is protected in our constitution, and you need to abide by that. When you post on your daily deal that you have reversed that policy, I will resume using you. If you don’t, Buh Bye!

  24. I know that GNC has a strict no weapons policy for its employees. At the store that I worked there is only one employee working at any one time, and at the end of the day the employee leaves the store with a cash deposit bag, making you a very easy target for would be thieves. Their policy makes the employee and unprotected sitting duck. I’m not sure if the ban customers from possessing weapons.

    • Virtually every retail store prohibits employees from carrying weapons of any kind. I guess they think an employee might become angry and shoot their boss or something (ridiculous, I know). It doesn’t mean they are anti-gun or won’t allow customers to carry.

    Town Center Mall in Charleston WV has no signs posted regarding firearms. I carried there, both concealed and openly, with no problem until 2 days ago, when, after removing my coat due to the temperature inside and playing with my great-grandson, I was asked by a security officer to put my coat back on, lest someone think they were about to be robbed. I asked him if he really though people would think a 63 year old man with a granddaughter and great-grandson in tow and a weapon in a holster was a threat. He said it was mall policy. I left and won’t be going back. In WV it’s legal to carry openly without a permit, though I do have a concealed carry permit.

    • If you want to carry open or concealed, come to Texas.

      Reply

      • I wish that we could open carry, but we can’t. In Texas there are two different signs that restrict a concealed handgun license holder from carrying into a place of business. They are a 30.06 sign, and a 51% sign.

        A 30.06 sign is a sign that a business owner can post to restrict a CHL holder from entering the business with a concealed handgun. The sign must contain the exact words required by Section 30.06 in both English and Spanish, be placed in an area visible to the public, and have 1″ lettering or it will not be considered a legally-binding 30.06 sign. “Gunbuster” signs, or signs with a red slash through a gun, are not considered valid 30.06 postings.

        A 51% sign is a sign that a business is required by law to post if 51% of their revenue is obtained through on-premises drinking, such as at a bar. Unfortunately this also has the consequence of not allowing CHL holders to enter the premises where the drinking is taking place while carrying their handgun.

We won’t recommend any kind of boycott action for a DADT policy, but it is a little puzzling. If they have a policy, you would think they’d want people to know. Otherwise, why have the policy at all?

    You are no better than the Taliban. As a gun owner and concealed carry-licensed citizen these companies are now being terrorized over their freedom to chose what they wish. You are ignorant to alcohol service liabilities and the insurance premiums for dram shop and other legal suits, by establishing boycotts you are costing Americans jobs! By the way, it is ignorant to that these companies are anti-second amendment, and if you have a concealed weapon and you conceal it in a legal manner you are still legal if you take it into one of these establishments. Afraid of the Fridays Police? If they lose their liquor license or insurance you can’t drink there. Now which freedom are you risking? Grow a pair, conceal your legal weapon and enjoy a drink. Or continue to be a terrorist and destroy the USA!

      Against Fiscal Terrorist,
      Are you claiming that establishments that serve alcohol are required to have these policies? Also we are aware of their freedoms. We are aware of their freedoms to deny service to who they may please. We also have freedom to deny business to who we please. And as a group of patriots who feel very strongly about our 2nd Amendment rights we will exercise our freedom to not provide business to those companies whose policies belittle our 2nd Amendment right. Throughout this whole website I have not seen the opinions of anyone here pushed on anyone else. The information has just been made available to those who feel the need to play their part. We do respect your opinion (could be a little more respectful the next time you chose to express it) and as for me, respectfully disagree with it. Thank you for respecting ours as well.

    • In North Carolina, it is a moot point about carrying concealed into bars or anywhere that serves alcohol even if you’re not drinking, it is expressly forbidden in the CCH laws. As is, carrying into anywhere that charges admission to enter, i.e. theaters, museums, baseball parks, and IRONICALLY, gun shows at the Greensboro Coliseum.
      But, a business posting that it doesn’t like guns on their premises, doesn’t necessarily carry the force of law. Simply entering an establishment isn’t a punishable offense, IF they catch you, they can ask you to leave, and if you refuse then you get charged with trespassing. But the only people I’ve ever seen get busted are the ones trying to carry huge pieces of hardware, my J-frame revolver has never outted me, not once. But I digress.

      I would disagree with your idea that businesses are victims of terrorism. It’s a free-market, and if they wish to “pick and choose” their customers, they need to accept the consequences of their decisions. I’m confident that one of their competitors would GLADLY take their UNWANTED customers off their hands.

      • Michigan has similar laws to NC. Michigan doesn’t ban CCW licensees from carrying inside all alcohol-serving establishments, but only in establishments where the “primary source of income is alcohol served by the glass and consumed on premises.”

        In other words, bars and taverns that make their money from alcohol but happen to serve “bar food” are on this list, but establishments like TGI Fridays, Applebees, BD’s Mongolian Grill or Outback are not.

        By the same token, carrying concealed in an establishment that displays a sign that their place of business is a gun fr–, ahem, criminal empowerment zone, can result in a citation, and possibly a CCW permit suspension. I don’t test such policies; I avoid those establishments.

        Interestingly the local Buffalo Wild Wings is a franchisee and the owner refuses to enforce the mothership’s anti-gun policy so he has a decent gun-owning clientele.

    • Just as you have the right to speak out on the subject of being Taliban. We are not saying they do not have the right to ban guns in their business. We are saying we have the right to choice whom we want to do business with. If that cost someone their job and the company lost sales that is not our fault. We give ample business to those that we chose to do business with. Therefore, a job lost by one company will be gained by another. Profit lost by one company will be gained by another, therefore, it balances out. It just so happens the other is of our choosing. You sound like the Taliban because you say you have the right to speak out and I do not. Seems like the only solution for leftist like you is to call people names. Shows your lack of intelligence. Better said it makes you look like a arrogant dumb ass. Sorry Eric, just can’t stand these idiots.

    • Boycotting is not terrorism. It has been used for as long as I can remember to express customer dissatisfaction with a companies policies. People have boycotted companies for advertising on certain TV shows they didn’t like, for changing the ingredients in products and even over false rumors. The boycott is a traditional and legal form of protest. It doesn’t involve threatening anyone with bodily harm. The only threat is; we are not going to patronize your place of business as long as you continue to do something we feel is wrong. I have never heard of a boycott actually bankrupting any business. However I have heard of the regulations generally put in place by the same political party that wants to disarm us, destroying many businesses. How bad do you think it will get if they succeed in taking our right to defend ourselves from tyranny away?

      • Laws on signage vary by state, and each person needs to know those laws. I have heard in Virginia, for example, those signs are meaningless. You are not trespassing until you are ASKED to leave and then refuse. In other states like Texas, those signs must meet very specific standards in order to be effective. Check with your state and local laws.

        • With regard to the signage laws, South Carolina also has very specific guidelines for their “no concealed weapons” signs and the statue specifically states that the signs must meet these requirements to carry any legal authority.

We have a list in development that will rate most major American companies from “A+” to “F”. “F” means they are probably on the Boycott list. “B” or better companies are generally supportive of 2A rights. Please remember, this is still in development, and more will be on the way. We’ve only been doing this for a few weeks.

      Here’s a short list of the ones we’ve verified so far. You should be able to carry in some/most locations for the following companies:

      Starbucks
      PNC Bank
      McDonald’s
      Chase Bank
      NAPA Auto Parts
      Chick-fil-a

      Here is an unconfirmed list of companies we believe have generally neutral-to-favorable 2A positions, either through news reports or first hand open carry experiences. We plan to confirm these:

      Best Buy
      BJ’s Wholesale
      Radio Shack
      Wendy’s
      Dunkin Brands
      The Home Depot

      Once our list is in a condition to publish you’ll be able to look at the whole thing and quickly search out friendly/unfriendly companies by category.

Walmart told their employees that they would be terminated if they wore the pin because on the back of the pin it said Union Made/ made in America.

Unions were invented by socialists/communists and do everything they can to instill those principles in the United States. Unions always support the democratic party (since they got rid of the anti-union Kennedy’s anyway). The democratic party has slid farther and farther to the left over the last 50 years. The unions are constantly at odds with Wal-mart, even going so far as telling their members to turn in their Sam’s Club cards and shop at Costco instead. The longshoreman’s union even refused to let members leave a meeting until they turned the cards over (this was confirmed by a family member who is in the Coast Guard in the San Diego area). I live in a right to work state (Utah) and have a cousin who has been a cement truck driver here for 25 years. He joined the union and has even been a union steward. He hates it, but it is a necessary evil to keep his job as the members are told to make sure any non-members either quit or get fired ASAP. He also has to keep his political leanings and the fact that he owns firearms secret as the union looks down on conservatives in general and firearms specifically. So Wal-mart is not anti-American they are anti-socialist/communist union and didn’t want their employees supporting them. Take a look at who gave money to which party.

      • Please email me about home depot because I have an account there. I will stop shopping there if they hate my rights. I mean any of my rights. Further more protection from crime isn’t just from criminals but from abusive cops as well.

        • A few years ago, I was advised that an employee was fired in Michigan for wearing an “In God we Trust” button on his shirt. The store still had a lot of cuistomers going to it. I guess many Americans don’t have any feeling for that right either..I have not and will not ever shop at Home Depot again…

    • You look like a sissy JR. Grow a set and stop pissing yourself in fear all the time. What the fuck did your daddy do to you in the middle of the night that you grew up to be so sissified and afraid?

  47. I WILL NOT do business with any of the above mentioned companies and I’d like to add that I will not do business with Red Lobster either as it has come to my attention that they have purchases advertising time on Al Jazeerah network.

  48. Ikea really saddens me. I loved shopping there! Below is my email to them tonight..

    I have been an Ikea customer for nearly 20 years, and I am sorry to say that after hearing about your stance on firearms, I will no longer be able to purchase anything from your company. My husband and I were violently attacked two years ago, and it isn’t much longer unfortunately until that person is released. We both carry firearms on us at all times now to protect ourselves and our children. If I am banned from your stores because of my desire to protect my family (legally), I will no longer shop on your website either. I can’t bring myself to do business with a company that refuses to let my family and I have our safety. I sincerely hope that you take the time to re-think this policy, I truly do love your products and will mourn the loss of the store from my life.

    Sincerely,

    Saddened customer

  49. below is the email I sent to Bank of america:

    I regret to inform you that I once had an account with your company. However, it has been brought to my attention that you do not support the 2nd amendment and are anti-gun. Because of this the multiple business I own (all of which have nothing to do with guns) will no longer have any business to do with your bank. This includes taking bank cards or credit cards from customers drawn on accounts you control. This may harm our finances but I am confident that the many other businesses that are joining this boycott will affect your business much more than ours will be affected. We hope you reconsider your policies.

    Regards,

    Daniel Baxter

    • Dan,

      That’s great! Have you found a 2A friendly alternative? We would like to hear about it.

    • Awesome Dan!!!! That is the kind of stepping up that will make a dent. I appreciate your solid stance!! Let’s get America back!!!!

    • Its great to see people like you standing up for what you believe in. It warms my heart to see that my father’s 26 years in the Army, my brother’s still ongoing career in the Navy, and my service to the Air Force were not wasted. I wish more Americans were as patriotic as you have shown with your act against this bank. Thanks again for being a true American and standing up.

  50. People like yourselves are a disgrace to this country and what it stands for: FREEDOM AND THE RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES FROM TYRANTS AND THE LIKES OF YOU WHO ARE UPHOLDING THE RIGHT OF CRIMINALS INSTEAD OF LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL US WHEN OR WHERE WE CAN DEFEND OURSELVES FROM PEOPLE WHO WOULD TRY TO ROB, RAPE, OR KILL US! IF YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT THE 2ND AMENDMENT OR THE CONSTITUTION AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR, THEN TAKE YOUR BUSINESSES AND GET OUT OF THIS COUNTRY AND LIVE IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY LIKE AUSTRALIA, ENGLAND, CHINA, CUBA OR ANY OTHER COMMUNIST OR SOCIALIST COUNTRY THAT HAS TAKEN PEOPLE’S RIGHT TO DEFEND THEMSELVES! THIS IS THE ONLY WAY THAT THEY CAN CONTROL OTHERS, BECAUSE IF THE PEOPLE OF THESE COUNTRIES WERE ALLOWED TO HAVE FIREARMS, THOSE GOVERNMENTS WOULD PROBABLY FALL! ONLY COWARDS CONTROL PEOPLE IN THIS WAY AND IN THIS COUNTRY, WE WILL NOT STAND FOR IT!

  51. Joe, penis references tell us a lot about you. I’m guessing you like big ones, right?

    Reply

  52. I am guessing Joe is intelligent enough to not care about your homophobia anymore than he cares about your firearm stance. You see, most evolved people do not sit around and wonder whom might be gay or not. They do not care. It is normally right wing gun nuts with very simple minds that assume these things about others. Most secure men do not care if someone is gay or not. So I am guessing you not only have a small penis but also have some hidden fantasies? Loser!

  53. Sounds like you, too, have too many penis fantasies. Not surprised.

  54. Ok Mr. ‘evolved’ MK Jeffries. How about you learn how to use the grammar with which you attempt to insult others. Your use of ‘whom’ is grammatically incorrect, and the irony of its use in the context in which you applied it is not lost on the truly evolved. There is nothing archaic about standing up for one’s constitutional rights.

  55. One again, I do and I am proud of it. Bye now Miss Q. lol

  56. Ok, MK….if confronted by a bad guy with a gun, I will shoot back; you can hit him with your purse.

  57. Thanks for the list, I will spend my money only where no rednecks are NOT armed .
    Texas now is back to wild west, not the XXI century.

  58. you are the one who is going to be wishing someone had a fire arm on them when someone crazy person comes in and shoots up the store you are supporting! these stores will be targets bc the bad guys know that no one will be armed.

    Reply

  59. That was an intelligent comment to further your point. I think you made the other side’s point. People who speak in such a manner are clearly ueducated and make a good argument for them not carrying a weapon under any circumstances. A little domestic violence or anger management issue? But then you would have to actually have had a girlfriend.

  60. Haywood, your reply removes all doubt that we need more screening before someone is allowed to carry.

  61. Yes, I agree with Mike below. I left a comment about the obvious lack of intellect in this response to the lady but it is not here.probably because I was still getting signed up. People like this are what scare responsible gun owners like me. Very concerned about someone like this with a weapon.

  62. Mike, see above in your support. Hopefully my comment gets posted. Second try.

  63. Not only that He gives 150 million US taxpayer dollars to a terrorist state there’s something wrong with his fool of a head. And now he wants to turn around and make the legal gun owner jump through a bunch of hoops that we don’t need to be jumping through. It’s not going to keep the guns out of the hands of the criminal or the insane if they want to get one. They got to do is go down on the street corner pay a hundred bucks and got one.
