David Hogg puts Publix in crosshairs demands $1 million donation and anti-NRA pledge

1 Comment

H/T The Washington Times.

Who does David Camera Hogg think he is Jessie Jackson demanding money from Publix?

David Hogg is trying to shake down Publix.

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores.

Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.


Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded apledge of ideological fealty to the gun-control movement.

“I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman [sic] to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A rated NRA politician again,” he wrote.

The monetary demand came a day after Mr. Hogg called for disruptive demonstrations Friday at all Publix stores, one of the biggest chains in the Southeast and especially Florida, where it is the largest private employer.

“@Publix is a #NRASellOut,” he tweeted. “In Parkland we will have a die in the Friday (the 25th) before memorial day weekend. Starting at 4pm for 12 min inside our 2 Publix stores. Just go an lie down starting at 4. Feel free to die in with us at as many other @Publix as possible.”

When asked by the Tampa Bay Times about its support for Mr. Putnam, a Publix spokesman did not mention guns.

“As the hometown candidate, Publix has had a long-standing relationship with Commissioner Putnam,” spokesman Brian West said. “We support pro-business candidates, and believe Commissioner Putnam will make a great governor.”

David Hogg’s Back – Look What He’s Demanding Now

David Camera Hogg has long overstayed his fifteen minutes of fame he needs to STFU and go away.

Parkland senior, David Hogg, seems to want to stretch out his 15-minutes of fame long past its expiration date. Check out one of his latest tweets…

Hogg has been talking out of both sides of his mouth since the horrific shooting in February at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

He’s said that the March For Our Lives movement isn’t about taking away the rights of gun owners, but the Mission Statement says that the organization is pushing for an ‘assault weapons ban’ which presumably would include the AR-15.

He’s also called for courtesy in speech, but has been pretty vile when speaking about the NRA and Republicans, calling them ‘sick f**kers’ that could have the ‘blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t change anything’:

(LANGUAGE WARNING)

He also attempted to shut down speech he didn’t like by pushing for a boycott of Laura Ingraham’s advertisers.

And he made a big stink about the new rule requiring Stoneman Douglas students to carry clear backpacks.

It seems like those backpacks are really a thorn in his side.

He’s bringing them up again.

And the Broward County School District has been lying about the shooter not being a part of a controversial disciplinary plan that would stop reports of crime to police from particular demographics.  They’ve also shut down any further information released to the public.

But hey, let’s push for gun control.

Jim Carrey Takes Aim at NRA ‘Scoundrels and Sadists’

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbarts Big Hollywood.

Jim Carrey is just a pathetic has been that is trying to reclaim his fifteen minutes of fame.

FILIPPO MONTEFORTE/AFP/Getty Images/Twitter

Actor Jim Carrey is taking aim at NRA “scoundrels and sadists,” referring to the gun rights group as “a national disgrace.”

Carrey tweeted a drawing May 13 that depicted newly chosen NRA President Oliver North as a snake. The drawing was captioned “Someday they’ll say we turned a blind eye to the suffering and slaughter of our own children and gave ourselves over to scoundrels and sadists. The NRA is a national disgrace. The venom of greed is killing America”:

Jim Carrey

@JimCarrey

Someday they’ll say we turned a blind eye to the suffering and slaughter of our own children and gave ourselves over to scoundrels and sadists. The NRA is a national disgrace. The venom of greed is killing America.

Rosie O’Donnell quickly concurred with Carrey. She retweeted his message, adding, “Amen Jim.”

Jim Carrey has publicly denounced the NRA and pro-Second Amendment Americans for years. On March 24, 2013, Breitbart News reported that he referred to pro-Second Amendment Americans as “heartless motherf*ckers.” He made that statement at the same time he released a new song designed to mock late NRA President Charlton Heston. He sang, “His immortal soul may lay forever in the sand, the angels wouldn’t take him up to heaven as he planned, cuz they couldn’t pry his gun from his cold, dead hand.”

More recently, Carrey described the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre as a “demon from hell.”

Bank Threatens Ruger Over NRA Ties

Leave a comment

H/T Bearing Arms.

I hope Strum Ruger & Company does not give into the blackmail attempts by Amalgamated Bank to sever their ties with the NRA.

It stands to reason that gun companies would support the National Rifle Association. The NRA wants to keep as large a pool of people being able to buy guns as possible. That means gun manufacturers would have a much larger base of people to sell their products to. In other words, supporting the NRA is rational self-interest, if nothing else.

However, a bank is threatening Sturm, Ruger & Company over its NRA support.

Amalgamated Bank said it will pull investments from Sturm, Ruger & Company and withhold support for an board member if the gun maker fails to adopt new corporate policies and cut ties with the National Rifle Association. The bank’s chief executive Keith Mestrich described Ruger’s relationship with the NRA as “short-termism” in their resistance to new gun laws.

“They fail to proactively adopt corporate social responsibility efforts commensurate with the lethality of their product, and display hypocrisy in touting adherence to the law while working with the NRA to weaken the law as much as possible,” Mestrich said. He made a fiduciary argument that Amalgamated would have to pull funds because Ruger’s effort “creates significant financial and reputational risks” that will hurt the company and shareholders.

Amalgamated sent a letter, dated April 19, to Ruger’s board urging them to adopt corporate policies for gun makers recommended by gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety. The policies range from endorsing universal background checks and increasing funding for federal regulators and gun violence research to monitoring inventory distribution and investing in gun safety technology (ie smart guns).

The letter also singled out company board member Sandra Froman, who also serves on the NRA’s board. Because of the NRA’s political mission, the bank argued her presence is “a potentially significant conflict of interest.” As shareholders participating in Ruger’s annual meeting on May 9, the bank threatened to withhold support for Froman if the company failed to adopt Everytown’s policies.

What Amalgamated doesn’t get is that Ruger and the NRA share the same fight, if for different reasons.

The endgame of all gun control policies is to eventually restrict gun ownership to just a select few, making it practically impossible for the average citizen to own a gun. That means practically no one would be able to buy Ruger products. They’d be forced to compete for limited government contracts.

Why should Ruger support that?

But let’s say that it never got that far. You know, for the sake of argument. Let’s say Ruger decided to bow down to Amalgamated’s demands. What then?

Well, then Ruger would become a pariah in the firearm industry. Second Amendment advocates, most of whom are already gun owners and gun purchasers, would make it their mission to warn people off from buying Ruger products. “They’ll sell to you, but they won’t support your Second Amendment rights,” we’ll say, and we’ll be right.

This will directly impact their bottom line.

Luckily, Amalgamated probably doesn’t have the juice it’s pretending it does. Amalgamated isn’t listed as one of the top-20 investors in the company, which means any impact it makes is likely fairly minimal. While it’s possible it will pick up more shares to increase its ability to pressure the company, it’s unlikely it’ll do so sufficiently to really have much sway.

In fact, I wonder just how many shares of Ruger it owns, anyway. After all, based on its corporate culture–it’s the largest union-owned bank in the country–and how most of its notable clients are progressive/liberal entities, I’d be surprised to see it having owned many gun stocks prior to Parkland.

Oh, I’ll admit it may well have. Hypocrisy is hardly new in gun grabber circles, after all. But I still have my doubts.

Either way, though, Ruger would be stupid to bow down to these demands. There’s literally no upside for the company to do so, which Amalgamated doesn’t seem to get.

Former NRA President Doubles Down: Yeti Demanded NRA Cease Using Cooler Company Logo After Parkland

Leave a comment

H/T Breitbarts Big Government.

Yeti is scrambling to cover their ass from the backlash from NRA members.

Yeti’s crap is over priced I own the cup that beat Yeti and a couple of others in a test on which one held ice the longest nad my cup came from Walmart.

NRA President and current Unified Sportsmen of Florida (USF) Executive Director Marion Hammer says Yeti coolers demanded the NRA cease using the cooler company’s logo after the Parkland school shooting.

On April 21, Breitbart News reported Hammer’s announcement that Yeti coolers cut ties with the NRA Foundation. Over the next 24 hours, a #BoycotttYeti movement emerged on Twitter and videos of people shooting, crushing, and otherwise destroying their Yeti coolers began making their way onto Facebook, YouTube, and other social media outlets.

Yeti released a statement on Monday claiming the NRA-ILA’s statement about the cooler company cutting ties with the NRA Foundation was “inaccurate”:

On Tuesday, Hammer emailed Breitbart News a response to the Yeti statement. The statement said:

YETI severed ties with the NRA and is now engaging in damage control after a backlash from many of its customers. In early March, YETI refused to place a previously negotiated order from NRA-ILA, citing “recent events” as the reason – a clear reference to the tragedy in Parkland, Florida. YETI then delivered notice to the NRA Foundation that it was terminating a 7-year agreement and demanded that the NRA remove the YETI name and logo from all NRA digital assets, as well as refrain from using any YETI trademarks in future print material. While YETI is trying to spin the story otherwise, those are the facts. While Yeti can choose to run from the NRA, they can’t run from the facts.

Hammer concluded her statement by noting, “Whether this is due to the recent cancellation of the IPO from their New York City owners is a question only they can answer.”

Hollywood gun control proponents, including Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, and Jimmy Kimmel are helping launch an initiative to take down the NRA.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the initiative is being called the “No Rifle Association initiative.” The hashtag will be #NoRA.

The organization penned a letter to NRA executive VP Wayne LaPierre on Friday, signed by more than 130 Hollywood stars.

“We’re going to shine a bright light on what you and your organization do to America. We’re going to make sure the whole world sees your bloody hands. We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win,” the letter said. “We’re coming for your money. We’re coming for your puppets. And we’re going to win.”

Other celebrities signing onto support the initiative include Ashley Judd, W. Kamau Bell, Don Cheadle, Minnie Driver, Jon Favreau, Nathan Fillion, Jordan Horowitz, Julianne Moore, Michael Moore, Patton Oswalt, Annabella Sciorra, Jill Soloway, Amber Tamblyn and Constance Wu.

Parkland student gun control activists David Hogg and Cameron Kasky have signed onto the initiative as well.

Supporters of the initiative made clear they plan to “counterac[t] the influence of NRA money in the political system.”

NRA’s Top Lobbyist In Florida Kept From Hearing Due To Death Threats

Leave a comment

H/T Bearing Arms.

We always hear how intolerant  Conservatives are but the truth is the left is the intolerant ones.

The anti-gunners like to accuse gun rights activists of a lot of things. We’ve been accused of lacking sufficient size in certain appendages, for one (that’s a common one). We’ve also been accused of being violent, malicious people just looking to hurt others.

Meanwhile, we’re not the ones making death threats.

Marion Hammer, the NRA’s top lobbyist in Florida, didn’t attend Tuesday’s public hearing on a Leon County gun ordinance because of death threats.

Hammer, usually a staple at legislative hearings on gun bills, acknowledged she wouldn’t attend the hearing in an email exchange over the weekend with County Commissioner Bryan Desloge.

“The death threats come with the job,” she said in a Sunday email. “I’ve dealt with it for many, many years. But it is so ugly this time NRA is insisting that I listen to my security advisers. It always amazes me how these people who claim to want to stop violence are so quick to threaten violence. I have never been afraid of them but it really makes me angry when they threaten my family.”

Desloge, in a Saturday email, said he learned about the threats from his aide, who’d spoken with her.

“I regret that’s happening to you,” Desloge said. “You don’t deserve to be treated in that manner — you’re just doing your job, just as I will be doing mine when I cast my vote.”

After a nearly five-hour debate, commissioners voted 6-1 to adopt an ordinance requiring background checks and a three-day waiting period for all private firearm sales on publicly accessible property, from gun shows to garage sales. Desloge, the only Republican on the commission, voted against the measure.

Hammer, past president of the NRA and executive director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida, sent a surrogate, Alex Hoffman, to the hearing. Hoffman didn’t mention the death threats, saying only that Hammer “was unable to attend the meeting tonight.”

As much as the rules annoy me, nothing angers me like death threats against someone simply because they hold a different view.

What this tells me is that at least someone doesn’t want debate. They don’t want to hear differing opinions. They don’t care about a basic human right, the right to own the means to defend oneself. They don’t care about any of that.

They want compliance.

We’re supposed to be doormats. Unfortunately, a lot of us aren’t cut out for that role. Marion Hammer sure isn’t. People like her fight, and the gun grabbers don’t like that because she’s effective at it. So, they threaten her and her family. If they can’t silence her with their typical rhetorical tricks, they’ll silence her with threats and intimidation.

People who make death threats against their opponents are nothing new. They’ve been with us for ages. It just seems like they’re ramping it up in this day and age. Maybe they’re not and this is an optical illusion, but I don’t think so.

The thing is, it’s not a good idea to threaten gun owners with death. We tend to be armed ready to meet those threats, if need be.

Hogg’s Sister Also Thinks Teens Are Wiser When It Comes To Our Civil Liberties

2 Comments

H/T Clash Daily.

The thing Camera Hogg’s sister does not understand is the Second Amendment is the guardian of the other Nine Amendments.

These little skulls full of mush are just spouting words feed to them by their puppet masters like George Soros Michael Bloomberg and so on.

In a flurry of tweets and a video released by TMZ, David Hogg’s sister, Lauren, shared her thoughts on civil liberties. It’s rather informative.

The sweet, sweet gun-grabbing children are so very, very wise.

Parkland high school students have been featured by the Media (D) since the tragic school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14th.

Most are pushing a gun control agenda and seriously have no clue what they’re talking about.

Amazingly, these teens don’t want to point any of the blame at:

  • the shooter himself
  • the Broward Sheriff’s Office for doing nothing with the 45+ calls to the shooter’s home
  • the School Resource Officer that failed to enter the building once he heard that shots were fired
  • the Broward Sheriff’s Captain that gave a ‘stand down’ order to the responding deputies
  • the school policies that were ignored allowing the former student-turned-shooter on campus
  • the Broward County School District policies that would have ‘red flagged’ the shooter
  • the FBI ignoring two tips by people close to the shooter
  • the Media (D) for making these mass shooters famous

Nope.

It’s the gun’s fault.

And the NRA.

The only thing that they want is gun control now.

The school, on the other hand, put in place some ‘security measures’ that began on Monday, including mandatory clear backpacks, visible I.D. badges, as well as armed police. The school board is still in discussion regarding the use of metal detectors and wands.

Whoa, Nelly! Those kids got angry because their ‘rights’ were being infringed because oneperson did a very bad thing…

Huh. Weird. Don’t people like that?

So, do you think these kids will understand that demanding to take guns away from law-abiding gun owners is the same thing?

Isn’t It Ironic? Parkland HS Students Hate The New Big Government Security Measures

They’re not going to see the irony there at all.

Lauren Hogg

@lauren_hoggs

Today when I walk into school I will be greeted with armed police, wand detectors and clear backpacks.

Is this what my high school experience is going to be like? 3 more years of this…

Someday when my kids ask me about my high school experience what am I going to tell them?

 

Yes, They Are Coming for Your Guns

1 Comment

H/T Town Hall.

Here is some food for thought the last time a government was this heavily armed 6 million people died in concentration camps.

The anti-gun movement has held out the falsehood that they are not coming after people’s guns as a central core of their effort to hide their existential goal.  The lid was blown off that charade when a 97-year-old man who previously occupied a position at the top level of our country (retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens) advocated for the abolition of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in the paper of record – The New York Times.

Before anyone jumps off a cliff about this proposition, let me state who I am on this issue.  I am not a gun owner.  I am not a member of the National Rifle Association nor any other group that supports gun rights. I was fairly ignorant about essential elements of guns and gun owners until I did a series of columns on the subject and became knowledgeable about the subject of guns through extensive research and interviews.

I strongly support the right to bear arms.  I don’t care about or believe that garbage about a well-armed militia.  The Second Amendment was put in place and obtained its lofty position as the “Second Amendment” right behind the most essential amendment giving us free speech etc., etc., for a reason.  The people who founded this country did not trust government.  Even though they were possibly the most talented, intelligent and capable group of people ever assembled for one cause, they lacked the arrogance of most people in government that government was or is the answer.

When I have discussions with people wanting to shrink the rights of gun owners, they discount this essential aspect of why citizens should be allowed to own guns.  When I ask them to explain the explosion of armed representatives of the government in non-military agencies, they are universally ignorant of that fact.  Here are just a few:

  1. The IRS has 2,300 Special Agents armed with AR-15s, P90 tactical rifles and other heavy weaponry.  The IRS recently spent $12 million on ammo and weapons.
  2. The Small Business Administration (SBA) spent tens of thousands on Glock hand guns.
  3. In 1996 the Veterans Administration had no armed employees.  Today they have 3,700 officers armed with millions of dollars worth of guns.
  4. The list goes on.

As a Jew, I have a problem with any government having all the guns. The last time we allowed that to happen, it ended with millions of dead Jews.  I believe any Jew who denies that reality puts their own political naiveté above the survival of the Jewish people.

If you think that is far-fetched because it happened over 70 years ago, then just cast your eyes south to Venezuela.  Hugo Chavez took over a country that had open elections and was the most prosperous in South America in 1999.  In less than 20 years Chavez and his successor Maduro have run an educated, productive country into the ground.  It is a human disaster and they control all the guns while people are starving.

Let’s look at the current move by the anti-gun people to limit guns.They call a restriction of certain long guns “common sense” legislation.  First let me say, these people have destroyed the use of the words “common sense” for all of us just like they destroyed the word “liberal.” In both cases, the use of the words was driven into oblivion by using them in an Orwellian manner.

Let us believe that the banning of these guns was achieved as they previously were for 10 years with non-existent benefit. Toward what end? The fact is that deaths from long guns average one per day.  If you exclude suicides, gun death by hand guns are 42 per day. If you include all gun deaths (suicides) by hand guns it is 104 per day.  We are led to believe by their rhetoric that once the anti-gun goal of banning certain long guns has been achieved (guns responsible for one death per day), they will stop and not go after guns that are used to kill 104 per day.  Balderdash.

Those of us who have some experience in life know that is not the way it works with the Left.  They play a long game and are happy to move the ball forward with mini steps until they achieve their goal.  That is how they moved a free market for medical care in America just 55 short years ago to a position that some states like California are toying with 100% government-run health care.  There is an expression that could be used in this situation – if that ever happens, just shoot me.

I don’t trust the government and this country was established on that bedrock principle.  I don’t trust the people who are lying to us about what their true intentions are about gun control just like they lied to us about government-run health care. They want all guns in the control of government-controlled apparatchiks.

As Charlton Heston said: “From my cold, dead hands.”
