Chief executives of 145 companies urge Senate to pass gun control laws
https://www.cnbc.com/2019/09/12/chief-e ... -laws.html
Leaders of 145 companies wrote a letter to the Senate Thursday, urging the governmental body to take action on gun safety.

The letter notes recent gun violence in Chicago, Newport News, Virginia and other places, calling it a “public health crisis.” But the leaders also say that gun violence is preventable, and lawmakers can step in to prevent tragedies.

“That’s why we we urge the Senate to stand with the American public and take action on gun safety by passing a bill to require background checks on all gun sales and a strong Red Flag law that would allow courts to issue life-saving extreme risk protection orders,” they wrote in the letter.
Here's the letter with the signatories and companies they represent.

I stopped buying Levi's several years back when they came out as anti 2A..... Several of those are Hollywood companies, so I wonder how many are Communistfornia based....

Geez I stopped when they got on the Boy Scout’s case.
It didn’t stop the trend as the Boy Scouts caved.

Wow a whole new list to boycott.

Beto today started pressuring the credit card companies to not do business with gun and ammunition sellers.

That spawned an idea from a friend for the Gun Bank and Gun Bank credit card. Triple points for all gun purchases.
Cool images on the credit cards etc.

We don't need gun control laws, we need armed guards everywhere; you know, like they have in Israel.

Something is gonna' get passed, just wait and see.
