You see where I'm going there....
How do you feel about the same thing by Executive Order? You only missed it by 34 years. http://www.nytimes.com/1983/04/02/business/us-raises-tariff-for-motorcycles.html
Those are tariffs on imported bikes, not those made in other states.
The information posted regarding RRA and SA, looks pretty damning. Especially since the proposed legislation, would exempt them from the law. While I agree, that we may not be able to boycott, every corporation that we disagree with politically, I think that when a company appears to have helped, if only indirectly, with the restriction of 2A rights, and they rely directly on that right for their livelihood, we can and should stand up and at least hold them accountable.
They may do the right thing, and begin a concerted effort to defeat the legislation, disentangle themselves from the lobbying group they formed, issue apologies to anyone who has been hurt by this proposed legislation, then work more diligently towards removing these left wing reps from the legislature, then they can possibly redeem themselves. But they have dug themselves a deep hole, that will take a lot of time and energy on their part to crawl out of. JMHO
