Oooooh, so you may be playing hookie!!! Now I get it!
So at the end of the day they pulled all hunting and fishing equipment from their stores, publicly are left leaning, and are very anti-gun. That's enough for me. If one is anti gun then they are anti hunting by proxy in my book.
In line with this I am shocked that so many folks use Pay Pal, they are very anti gun.
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:
violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.
relate to transactions involving (a) narcotics, steroids, certain controlled substances or other products that present a risk to consumer safety, (b) drug paraphernalia, (c) cigarettes, (d) items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity, (e) stolen goods including digital and virtual goods, (f) the promotion of hate, violence, racial intolerance or the financial exploitation of a crime, (g) items that are considered obscene, (h) items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction, (i) certain sexually oriented materials or services, (j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (k) certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law.
WOW, reading through the list from Paypal, what fun are they? If everyone followed those rules (or if they were enforced - like current gun laws...) Paypal would be out of business!
Thanks for sharing all these statements from Target @gizmo
Not defending Paypal, at all. I'm not a fan and only use when I feel I have no other reasonable choice.
Part of this though is our litigious society. Read the fine print in dang near any contract and there is a ton of stupid stuff to prevent people from suing anyone even remotely involved. Just nuts....
I was just thinking, man, PayPal is a buzzkill!!!
That's why I am an old school Barbour jacket guy!
I HATE Target..they are not only anti hunting, they are also anti GUN!!
This really needs posted all over the place. There are almost 27,000 members on this forum and the word must be spread to all of them. Hunters must send a clear message to Verizon on this. I switched to AT&T from Verizon today and it was really seamless. They bought out my Verizon plan so I did not have any early termination fees.
Lufthansa - German Airlines restricted trophy cargo
It just shows how little the hunting community is doing to promote itself. Again I say we need a powerful PR firm to help the industry.
????from Namvic Tours & Safaris, this seems ode to me, and I believe it should be publishes as well....
I believe this has been posted already.
I don't buy into the "us vs them" mentality from either side regarding boycotts.
If a company has the products/services I need, at a good price, and whose employees are helpful - I'll shop there.
So you will willingly use or buy from companies that refuse to recognize your right as s hunter and discriminate against us?
Yes, just as I would hope anti-hunters are willing to buy from e.g. Cabelas for their outdoor needs.
Being excessively divisive just leads us to be even further apart. Instead of calling Holiday Inn like an unstable lunatic to tell them we're boycotting them, how about we stay at the Holiday Inn and have cordial conversations to let them know we are valuable customers.
All the hate on both sides is just unhealthy imo
Not sure where the hate come into this conversation! It's just people sharing what they do not like or are offended by. No hate just statement of opinion!
I can tell you without any doubt that that's not how the anti's went after Holiday Inn. In Calgary, in Toronto, in Saskatoon, they had protesters blocking people's way, and in some cases, physically preventing them from entering. In Toronto, those who wanted to attend the African Hunting show were required - by the police no less - to listen to the protesters for some minutes, before the police would force the protesters to move aside. In effect, they intimidate. Both businesses, and people. Without that, they would have no success. And they seem to succeed.
If we do not vote with our wallets and our feet, we are in effect telling those businesses who refuse to deal with us that we are quite alright with that. And that's not acceptable, at least not to me.
Let me be clear - I don't think we need to adopt the attitude of the antis. We don't need to intimidate, or use violence in place of reason. But we do need to use the tools we have. And nice conversations - while a start - are not nearly as effective as money.
I just question the amount of money. Fewer than 10% of gunowners belong to the NRA, and then I would guess fewer than 10% of those boycott. That's not a lot of people when they are all spread out.
