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 NRA is always saying…a good guy with a gun..

    hmm, how did that work out for the kids at the high school with the so-called “good guy with a gun” at the school?

    really, what the NRA is saying is: Just Build More Coffins because we don’t care

    Reply

    • Fay, those weren’t good guys with guns. Those were COWARDS with guns.

      Reply

      • And how are you going to check for cowardice at the time of legal gun purchase? “good guys with guns”… how do you know if someone is a good guy? the current background check system (supported by the NRA (in that they fight tooth and nail against it becoming tougher in any way)) doesn’t even prevent sales to the mentally ill or an 18 year-old KID, and now you want us to distinguish between “good guys” and “cowards” in the aftermath of a mass shooting? how about we don’t need good guys with rifles unless their occupation or living situation (they live out in the wild around wild animals as some NRA’s claim) requires it? what does the typical “good guy”, esp those living in towns and cities, need a rifle for?

        Reply

        • You can’t check for cowardice at the time of purchase. No one can predict whether or not someone will have the courage to put their life on the line when the SHTF. They either will or they won’t. In reality, none of this matters, because I’d rather have armed personnel on-site rather than it be a “gun-free”, sitting duck zone – even if it’s just as a deterrent. These wackos don’t want confrontation, they wan’t to do the most damage to those who can’t fight back. They’re cowards. That’s why you don’t ever see mass shootings at gun shows, where you’ll find a plethora of guns and ammo within arm’s reach. If you do the research, you’ll learn that something like 96% or 97% of mass shootings were in “gun-free” zones. BTW, age has nothing to do with mental illness. And finally, it’s not up to YOU or anyone else to tell someone what kind of handgun or rifle they do or do not need. No one tried to stop you from buying your silly Prius, did they? By the way, let me know when you find a mass shooting committed by an NRA member. SMH

          Reply

          • My silly Prius (which i don’t have) is not built for the sole purpose of causing harm or death..so let’s not get too self-righteous with that comparison, lol

            1) There was someone at that school with a gun with the sole charge of providing security so it was not a gun-free zone. not being gun-free didn’t help.

            Also why do states with more lax gun laws have more gun-related crime? let’s sit and think really hard about this one….
            https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/03/02/the-best-available-evidence-suggests-nra-backed-gun-policies-are-making-crime-worse/?utm_term=.0ca745f3bf93

            Why do way more people in America have to die from gun-violence than people in other developed countries? Do other countries have less gun-free zones?
            Also please refrain from telling me because America somehow just has statistically significantly higher rates of mental illness… it doesn’t. But you know what America does have that these other countries don’t have?…a lot more guns and a powerful self-serving gun lobby (you and your friends!) controlling its government.

            2) I don’t need to find you evidence of mass shooting done by an NRA member because exactly NO ONE is saying that this has happened or fearing that it will happen. If that were the case, we’d be asking for the NRA to be dismantled or NRA-membership to become illegal. But that’s not the argument is it?
            We’re just fighting the the policies that the NRA supports tooth-and-nail because they’d rather have a system where assault weapons can be legally and easily purchased by someone intending to do harm, just so that it doesn’t become a teensy bit difficult for them, the so-called “good guys with guns”, to frolic in gun ownership, and to buy a second, third and fourth gun! (as though “goodness” or “cowardice” will show up in a background check when mental illness and domestic violence history doesn’t, and when gun purchases at gun shows DON’T REQUIRE ANY BACKGROUND CHECKS or even IDENTIFICATION… but we must have the gun shows right my dear “good guys with guns”!? They’re essential to the American way of life! how again?)

          • Wow, bob is really triggered. Maybe you should take a quiet ride in the country in your pink Prius. Try taking some deep breaths, bob. Maybe you should switch to decaf. When you get back from your ride in the country, do some research on gun violence in Chicago – where they have some of the strictest gun laws in the country. You might find it very interesting. Oh, and by the way, bob, most of the country is NOT “gun-free”, as you just asserted. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite. In MOST of the country, with permits (where needed), you’re allowed to LEGALLY carry. Banks, government buildings and schools are traditionally “gun-free” zones, but most everywhere else isn’t! How often do you see “this is a gun-free facility” or “no guns allowed” at the entrance of a business or building? Not too often, eh? Mmm hmm, perhaps the reason for that is it’s NOT gun-free. Wow, ya learn something new every day. Please folks, DON’T BE LIKE BOB.

          • 3) most places are gun free…so it makes sense that statistically most of anything happens in gun free zones. 96% of learning in America (or the world) happens in gun-free zones! now what are we gonna do? eliminate areas with gun ownership? 90% of sleeping happens in gun-free zones! 90% of shopping happens in gun-free zones… these aren’t bad things, so what do we do?? why shouldn’t there be sharp policy responses to these extremely high statistics?

            4) why don’t you provide me some evidence of all the incidents where having a gun-owning private citizen present explicitly saved lives? if your evidence is, there hasn’t been mass shooting at gun shows!!, then you’re using non-existence as proof of something existing (the life-saving feature of gun ownership), and that’s not logical.

          • Also, re: “it’s not up to YOU or anyone else to tell someone what kind of handgun or rifle they do or do not need.”

            It may not be up to me, but the government can, if it wants to, restrict what kinds of weapons can be purchased, because the second amendment, like the first amendment protecting free speech, does not offer you a right without any limitations. If i can’t yell “FIRE” in a crowded place just because i want to, maybe you can’t buy an assault rifle with more killing power (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/02/what-i-saw-treating-the-victims-from-parkland-should-change-the-debate-on-guns/553937/) just because for some reason, it pleases you…. at least, in a better world where the NRA wasn’t bribing the government, this would be the case

      The truth is coming out that they were told to stand down.

      Thanks to an Obama executive order in 2012, that talked about: “Promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools…”

      If you read this, you may understand why:
      https://www.publicsource.org/these-districts-fought-the-school-to-prison-pipeline-can-pittsburgh-learn-their-lessons/
      “Take Broward County, the Florida county that used to rank No. 1 at sending students to their state’s juvenile justice system.
      The stats troubled Broward County leaders, and they responded with a bold solution: Lower arrests by NOT making arrests.

      After examining juvenile data, a local task force compiled 12 misdemeanor offenses that would no longer be considered police matters. Criminal mischief and vandalism, for example.

      The results were quickly positive.
      In 2011-12, Broward County officers made 1,062 school-related arrests. That dropped to 392 in 2015-16, putting the rate of school-related arrests among the lowest in the state.”

    • Stop scapegoating the NRA. They literally had nothing to do with this.

      To sum up, we’ve got failure from:

      The Broward County Sheriff’s Department
      The FBI
      The Liberal Media

      The Broward County Sheriffs were told to stand down. They are not denying this on CNN even.

      Obama executive order in 2012 started all of this and Broward county thought that the best way to lower the number of juvenile arrests was to actually stop making arrests. Seems logical from a liberal point of view, right? If you don’t like the numbers just change them, and pretend the problem has been addressed and fixed.

    • What are you going to do when ALL gun models are banned and there are STILL guns out there? Because THAT’s what will happen. ANYone can make a gun with a few VERY simple parts you can get at any hardware store. Are you going to ban plumbing supplies next? If not, well, guns will still be around. Ask ANY person who has ever worked as a prison guard why the prisons have all gone to using beds with no metal in the frames… it’s because inmates would take the tubular legs off and make guns out of them. Criminals that WANT a gun WILL HAVE A GUN, even if you ban EVERY gun model that’s ever been made. All you anti-gun folks need to think long and hard about that. You simply CAN NOT get rid of guns, no matter what you do, it’s a physically impossible task.

  2. I think most responsible gun owners believe all gun owners think like they do.But there are a lot of people who have a hot temper,or substance abuse,and use a gun in the heat of the moment and regret it later. It’s to easy to pull a trigger. Do we really want to use a gun that can shoot that many bullets out there for anyone to use? My house was broken into and I was attacked. I would not have had time to get a gun and would have probably had it taken from me. And if a nut goes into a building shooting a gun that doesn’t have a high capacity magazine,then someone has a chance to unarmed him when he has to reload. No one has a chance against a semi automatic rifle. We need to think of what’s best for everyone,not what we believe is best for a few.

    Reply

    • First of all, in my state at least, you cannot have alcohol on your breath AT ALL if you wish to conceal carry. Second of all, you cannot receive a carry permit or purchase a gun if you have a drug addiction… your record has to be clear for 10 years and you cannot have ANY domestic violence or violent crimes on your record at all.

      Thirdly, what good is your gun if it is not near you? Yes, this applies to carrying at home. have it next to your bed, I wear a belly band that is quite comfortable, actually. My point: it’s always near by.

      Here is gun control from a victim’s perspective that you might understand… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-oNMHNrS-8

      Next, I think you are confused about guns. Semi-auto means one trigger pull per bullet. There are already very tough restrictions on guns, in fact it is nearly impossible to get a full-auto, which is what the media wants you to think of these guns as. Plenty of people would have a chance against a semi-auto rifle if they were allowed to conceal carry and practice their target shooting on the “nut” who decides to go into the gun free zone. And just because an AR is “scary looking” does not make it anymore effective than any other firearm, generally speaking, the media has been successful in convincing those ignorant of firearms that this is somehow a machine gun or something.

      Actually, many of these “nuts” specifically target these gun free zones. 98% of “mass shootings” occur in these gun free zones, and once the killer is faced with someone else with a gun, they generally turn the gun on themselves. They do all of this because they are cowards. Shooting fish in a bucket is not called fishing for a reason.

      Lastly, what is best for everyone is allowing people to defend themselves and thinking independently from the mainstream media.

    • Sherrie….. are you just being intentionally obtuse? I HOPE you realize that NEARLY ALL pistols are semi-automatic, yet you aren’t calling them out for some reason…. maybe you are just simple and do not understand guns, which is fine, except that IF THAT is the case, you have ZERO right to lecture ANY of us who do own guns on their use. ZERO, because you have no idea what you are talking about. Why do you think a semi-auto rifle means you have “no chance” yet you don’t even mention coming against a pistol which OFTEN shoots LARGER rounds which are FAR MORE dangerous…. but the gun doesn’t LOOK as scary. Good grief, all you did was prove you are without a clue.

  3. So, all of you who are praising these businesses for banning guns in their establishments…you DO realize that “GUN FREE ZONE” means “Welcome, criminal. We know you don’t read signs or pay attention to policies or obey laws, so come in on! The rest of our patrons are unarmed and easy prey for you should you decide to disobey our little sign and bring your nasty ol’ gun in there. We thank you for your patronage and hope that you don’t shoot up our merchandise while you’re here on your killing spree. Thank you for choosing our store and not one of those where they allow everybody to exercise their 2nd amendment rights. You probably wouldn’t have been able to kill as many people at one of those places. On your way out, please fill out a comment card. Have a nice day.”

  4. Stay away from Wells Fargo.
    After the whole First National Bank of Omaha cutting ties with the NRA thing, I am shopping around for a new bank. I went in to a Wells Fargo and talked to a banker, and he proudly stated that they don’t even allow hunter to put a picture of their “kills” on the customized debit cards. I asked so this bank gets political and is pretty liberal then? and he was happy to say yes, very political and very liberal…

    Also have heard of Bank of America, US Bank, and others freezing gun store bank accounts back during the Obama fiasco. I want to know where gun owners can bank without compromising. Are there any American institutions/organizations remaining in America?

      “• Promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools, and decreasing the disproportionate number of referrals to special education by addressing root causes of the referrals;”

      Nicholas de Jesus Cruz, by virtue of his adopted name, was Hispanic (or rather not the demonized white male he should’ve been) This may explain why they refused to take any disciplinary action upon him and possibly that the officers were told to stand down:

It drives me nuts to see how many people on here have nothing better to do then to give other people shit about what businesses they will not support due to the fact that they are taking away our constitutional rights. If you don’t support guns or the right to bear them that’s your right but don’t step on other people for trying to protect the right to own and protect themselves. Bottom line don’t tell us that we are idiots for what we do . Because just as much as you have a right to support that business we have the right not too.

  9. Thank you for providing me with a list of companies that I should support, because they care more about the safety of their customers and employees than about the insecurities or hero-fantasies of the “guns should be everywhere” crowd.

    I have no objection to having responsible people own guns, for hunting, shooting at a gun range for sport, or self-defense. But given the fact that highly trained soldiers have been killed by shooters (because the person with their gun out first has a huge advantage), and the fact that the accuracy rate for trained police around the country is well under 40% (bullets hitting their intended target), I don’t want some yahoo who thinks he is going to be a hero hitting me by accident, when aiming for someone he thinks is the shooter.

    Oh, and how is one “good guy with a gun” supposed to figure out who is the “bad guy with a gun”, if there are a dozen people with guns drawn and shooting? Sounds like a good way to guarantee MORE casualties, not fewer.

    • 2A says what the Supreme Court says it says. As it stands, the NRA’s positions are in-line with those of the Court’s decisions. In fact, they have confirmed 2A is an individual right, self-defense is a lawful purpose, and the AR-15 is a protected weapon in common use. You can go cry in your corner now. After Ginsburg strokes out, you’ve lost your attacks on the Constitution for another generation.

      Agree with your comment 100%. My Dad was a Marine, a designated sharpshooter. He always told me how dangerous guns were–never thought our citizenry needed guns to protect themselves against our government. Thought that was just a BullS_ _ _ excuse.

You made your bed, then lie in it. (with your lying self) I mean you hate the cops anyways, right? But they would still protect you just like any other law abiding gun owner.

      We don’t live in a utopia. If we disarm ourselves, we will be weak and then there won’t be any America for you to ruin anymore and we will all end up in a country just like the others that all the refugees wish to escape from. America is America for several reasons. Liberals have no idea what they are supporting…

        “• Promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools, and decreasing the disproportionate number of referrals to special education by addressing root causes of the referrals;”

        Nicholas de Jesus Cruz, by virtue of his adopted name, was Hispanic (or rather not the demonized white male he should’ve been) This may explain why they refused to take any disciplinary action upon him and possibly that the officers were told to stand down:

        (8/1/2017) “Take Broward County, the Florida county that used to rank No. 1 at sending students to their state’s juvenile justice system.
        The stats troubled Broward County leaders, and they responded with a bold solution: Lower arrests by not making arrests.
        After examining juvenile data, a local task force compiled 12 misdemeanor offenses that would no longer be considered police matters. Criminal mischief and vandalism, for example.
        The results were quickly positive.
        In 2011-12, Broward County officers made 1,062 school-related arrests. That dropped to 392 in 2015-16, putting the rate of school-related arrests among the lowest in the state.”

  26. You gun nuts need to understand the second amendment better.

    I know you will never listen to anything I have to say, so I’ll refer you to Republican, conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and his majority opinion in DC vs. Heller:

    Overview: http://www.businessinsider.com/justice-scalia-opinion-in-heller-2016-2

    Actual Text of his Majority Decision: https://www.law.cornell.edu/supct/html/07-290.ZO.html

    Justice Antonin Scalia, writing the majority opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller, in which the Supreme Court reversed a long-held position and ruled that the Second Amendment did give Americans an individual right to own firearms. The court said the District’s ban on handguns in private homes went too far, but that regulation of gun ownership was compatible with the Second Amendment:

    “We also recognize another important limitation on the right to keep and carry arms. ‘Miller’ said, as we have explained, that the sorts of weapons protected were those ‘in common use at the time.’ 307 U.S., at 179, 59 S.Ct. 816. We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of ‘dangerous and unusual weapons.’”

    Justice Scalia also wrote:

    “It may be objected that if weapons that are most useful in military service – M-16 rifles and the like – may be banned, then the Second Amendment right is completely detached from the prefatory clause. But as we have said, the conception of the militia at the time of the Second Amendment’s ratification was the body of all citizens capable of military service, who would bring the sorts of lawful weapons that they possessed at home to militia duty. It may well be true today that a militia, to be as effective as militias in the 18th century, would require sophisticated arms that are highly unusual in society at large. Indeed, it may be true that no amount of small arms could be useful against modern-day bombers and tanks. But the fact that modern developments have limited the degree of fit between the prefatory clause and the protected right cannot change our interpretation of the right.”

    The prefatory clause to which the justice refers, of course, is the one about “a well-regulated militia.” The AR-15, used in San Bernardino, is an M-16 knockoff.

    So rather than saying “assault weapons,” in the future perhaps we should say “the kinds of weapons that Justice Antonin Scalia has defined as ‘dangerous and unusual’ and subject to regulation or an outright ban under the Second Amendment.”

  28. The premise of this article is false. Those who want to limit or eliminate gun regulations are NOT denying pro-gun advocates their 2nd amendment rights for two reasons. 1. The first part of the sentence say that the right to bear arms is for a well armed militia. which in our time, would be the National Guard. Second, the amendment does NOT say specifically that the right to bear arms is absolute, and so the rights can be regulated; the first amendment guarantees free speech, BUT it does not grant to right to incite to riot, to shout “fire” in a theater where there is no fire. The framers of the constitution never thought that people of the future would not use common sense in implementing it. It is also worthy of note congress banned assault weapons in 1994, but failed to renew the ban in 2004, under GWB. While the ban was in effect, several cases against the ban were brought before the courts and WERE REJECTED. Polls have shown that a large majority of people in the USA, favor banning assault rifles. The primary force against such limitations are the gun cabal, the gun manufacturers, the NRA officials, not necessarily the rank and file, and the politicians who have been bought by questionably legal campaign contributions which are a clear case of pay for play.

    • What part of shall not be infringed don’t you understand? The Bill Rights does not confer any rights to us rather it secures our god given rights, one of those god given rights is the ability to protect yourself and your family by whatever means are necessary. It does not state a well armed militia, it states a well regulated militia which means all able bodied males 18 to 60.
      The so called assault rifle ban was a feel good measure really didn’t do anything. You have a few cesspool cities (Chicago, Detroit, LA, Baltimore, NY, San Fran and some others) that skewer the murder statistics, remove those cities and we live in quite a safe country
      Law-abiding citizens rights should never be infringed because of criminal, incompetence of law enforcement, the failure of schools and social services and mental health professional or the military

        What part of well regulated did you not understand. Allowing any fool to own any gun and carry it anywhere is NOT well regulated

        • JEANNETTE E JARRAR … “well regulated” in the way English was spoken at the time, means “well-practiced; trained” How does one become TRAINED in the proper aiming and firing of a firearm? BY OWNING ONE AND TAKING IT TO THE RANGE AND PRACTICING WITH IT.

          Dave Alexander, that argument is so bad, and discredited, that even Massachusettes and California libtards stopped using it decades ago.

          The MILITIA, according to Title 10 of the US Code, is ALL able bodied males between the ages of 18 and 60. The National Guard is NOT the militia. Never has been, and never will be. Several States, to this day, have an organization called the [State name] Militia, which is run by the Adjutant General, but BY LAW nobody who is in the regular army, the reserves OR THE NATIONAL GUARD can be a member of any [State[ Militia. And per Title 10 of the US Code, nobody above the age of 60 can be a member of these organizations. These organizations are 100% volunteer, even those who report directly to the Adjutant General. All uniforms and equipment are supplied by the militia members themselves. They receive NO pay, unless called to active duty by the Governor or Adjutant General.

          The National Guard is NOT the militia. And since it is a GOVERNMENT organization, it is *NOT* “the people”

          Don’t believe me? I challenge you to show us any other place in the Constitution where the phrase ‘The People” means “a segment of the government?

          1st Amendment… ‘The right of the people to peacably asemble’…. so, according to you, that means that THE GOVERNMENT can hold rallies, but not individuals.

          How about the 4th Amendment…
          “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

          So, by your reading of the 2nd Amendment, the 4th Amendment protects government employees, and everyone else can just get bent if the police show up at their door without a warrant.

          We can go on with the other Amendments as well…. and show that you are well and truly one of the biggest idiots in the entire country.

          Now shut up, before I shame you some more. IDIOT.

          • The whole idea was that we needed to have a well regulated militia INSTEAD of a standing army. The thought was that a national army would preclude democracy (it was kind of conspiracy theory paranoid, actually). It’s sort of complicated, and you should probably do your own research, please do that before you try to school people.

      We avoid deleting/blocking unless people cross the line. Hell, we really enjoy posts from left wing gun grabbing tools purely for their entertainment value (they are worthless beyond that).

      Above is yet another example of the superior gun-grabber intellect.

      They repeatedly use profanity, slander and language encouraging acts of violence….because, you know, “guns kill” and The NRA, which is really a grassroots organization made up of millions of ordinary Americans, is a somehow a “terrorist organization.” This despite never having called for violence, let alone terrorized anyone – unlike the gun grabbers themselves. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

      In reality, (something the rabid anti-gun left often struggles to cope with), the NRA is actually a civil rights organization educating Americans and joining them together to aid in protecting the rights of ALL Americans. Meanwhile, the groups that lead the astroturf, anti-gun, elitist agenda are funded by mega rich globalist snobs with armies of armed bodyguards like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, who have no interest in keeping Americans safe. They want to disarm people for THEIR OWN safety. Since the system is rigged to protect them and their 1%-er buddies they wouldn’t also mind disarming the 99%, just in case. The useful idiots falling in line with the Soros/Bloomberg agenda are merely pawns in a game they can’t understand.

      It’s sad how deluded many of our fellow Americans have become. You can’t have a discussion with people so rabidly convinced of their (ill-conceived) position. All you can do is point and laugh….and carry on.
