    Odd - I thought the politicians worked for us since we elected them - not these corporations.

    Nah, just kidding, I know they don't work for us - they work for their party and the formation of their political dynasty.

    I smell Bloomberg. This is what happens when you build a marketing company to demonize gun owners so that only neo-nobles are allowed armed protection. Every one of those CEOs has been primed for this "event" by an extensive and expensive marketing campaign. All those "Momz" have marketing degrees and know how to create a targeted campaign and have an effectively unlimited budget. The only advantage we have is actual numbers and facts.

    No but I read their CEO was going to do something on his own.

    A list of pro-gun companies might be shorter.

    Just heard on news that NASCAR will no longer be accepting adverts for anything gun related.

    I know they have been with corporate sponsors for as far back as I can recall. Too bad.

    Do they not realize who their audience is?

    Their audience has drastically changed in recent years. It is also much smaller than it used to be.

    There are very few things that "Americans across party and demographic lines overwhelmingly support" at those % levels. Why should we believe this is any different? Show us the poll questions.

    Something to keep in mind is how crappy the current NICS system is. John Lott has suggested that many of the NICS denials are false positives. NICS uses phonetically similar names to the applicant, and they use similar birth dates to the applicant. Any company that tried to do employment background checks this way, would not be in business too long.
