Problem is, isn’t the cat already out of the bag? Damage is already done.
I’ve always argued that all gun supporters should send polite, but firm personal letters to her house, discussing why you support the 2nd amendment.
It will work.
Boycotts work because many businesses cave before any real damage sets in. Probably the dumbest comment I ever heard was “Boycotts do not work”. They work. And this one will
A nice interactive map of all the Employees of these advertisers would finish the job.
It would be more effective to send them a notice of intent to sue if you as one of the listed registered gun owners is affected by assault or break in. Let them know that you will mount a class action law suit against all advertisers as responsible by enabling this maverick newspaper to put your life and property in danger along with many others. Tell them you will find the most savage contingency lawyer to work on this. Boycotts are dumb. You probably need their products more than they need you. The lawyers can do far more damage and they know it.
What needs to be made clear to the actors in this little drama is that this is terrorism - soft terrorism, to be sure, but terrorism still - and that should it devolve to violence the ones who encouraged it will be held accountable. Take names - the editors, the reporters, the “expert” analysts. And make it clear that if gun owners are not safe because of their activity, neither are they. We didn’t start this.
I think the boycott is a good idea. If somebody published an on-line petition to send to these advertisers Id certainly sign it. But, I have to say, I stopped using all of those advertisers for one reason or another. I also stopped using Starbucks, JC Pennies and a few others over their socially responsible political stands long ago. I think companies that join the liberal mindset should pay a price for it.
These boycotts never work. They should start publishing similar data on senior management as they did the publisher of paper.
More on point.
My parents already cancelled the subscription. They and I were listed this rag and are fuming angry still.
F these Commies
Here’s what I think should be done -
Since they have made gun owners into targets, publish a list of people who do not own guns and make them targets. It would be like a shopping list for thieves.
It seems to me that if gun permits are a matter of public record, then one could make a list of public addresses that do not have permits associated with them.
Or better yet, publish a list of all the high level people at the paper (I wouldn’t include those who are not reporters or decision-makers), along with their addresses and whether or not they have a permit. You could add in any vocal supporters, especially celebrities. This would expose those who are unarmed and would also expose the hypocrites who are.
The paper has in effect cased the homes in the county for the criminal element. The district attorney should charge them with being complicit with the crime before the fact with the first crime committed in the county where a home is broken into.
It would probably be more effective to keep putting signs in their yards that “THIS FAMILY DOES NOT BELIEVE IN GUNS.” The bad guys will know what to do.
