Corporate America v Gun Rights

The Founding Fathers devised a remarkably effective system to defend us from excessive government. However, Big Government does not have a monopoly on tyrannical centralized power. Major corporations, deranged by ESG moonbattery, often feel compelled to advance a repressive left-wing agenda. This is not always limited to the nauseating posturing we see from belligerently woke companies like Nike and Procter & Gamble. Moonbattery.com sponsor Ammo.com warns of the threat posed to the fundamental right to bear arms, which the Constitution defends from the government but not from private companies.

The Parkland Shootings in 2018 set off a firestorm of liberal propaganda attacking gun rights. Eager to acquire PC brownie points, Corporate America theatrically toed the ideological line.

JPMorgan Chase’s Chief Financial Officer Marianne Lake crowed to reporters that the company’s relationship with firearms manufacturers “have come down significantly and are pretty limited.” Bank of America announced its intention to stop extending credit to business clients manufacturing “military-style weapons.”

“Military style” in this context does not usually refer to functionality; it basically means that liberals think the gun is scary-looking.

Citigroup … took the step of requiring any of its business partners to restrict firearms sales to those over the age of 21, as well as those who have not passed a background check. They also barred their partners from selling so-called “high capacity magazines”…

After all, no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer — although you never know how many bullets someone might need to defend their home.

Amalgamated Bank went perhaps the furthest of all, refusing to invest any of its assets in companies involved in the manufacture of “firearms, weaponry and ammunition.”

Then there is PayPal:

PayPal, the biggest payment processing system on the Internet, cannot be used for any exercise of your Second Amendment rights

The Second Amendment has been rendered moot if private companies are able to deny gun manufacturers and retailers the use of financial services.

This goes beyond the finance industry.

Salesforce, a popular software platform for online retailers, will no longer do business with companies who sell virtually all forms of semi-automatic weapons.

We can boycott some of the companies that go out of their way to undermine our right of self-defense, like Levi’s and Dick’s. Others are harder to avoid.

Microsoft has put language in its Code of Conduct that prevents users from using [its online services] “in any way that promotes or facilitates the sale of ammunition and firearms.”

Incrementally strangling gun rights is not the only authoritarian threat posed by the private sector. Click through to read how Big Tech has been doing the same to freedom of speech — and go to the home page to stock up on discount ammunition.

  1. […] malignant discrimination inherent in identity politics is becoming inescapable. As with attacks on the Second Amendment, the private sector is as much a threat to freedom as Big Government. For example, Goldman Sachs […]
