Want to make YETI pay a price, write to BassPro/Cabelas and Academy requesting them to drop YETI. Then they can sell all their product thru REI their new target market.
It is not a question of relevance but one of interpretation.
. . . . Believe me, YETI did their research. . . .
Listen, we can kick and scream and think whatever we want but if we don’t begin getting real regarding the situation, what has become of the NRA (and yes, this remains on topic) and society in general (its extreme distaste for), we’re going to be left at the curb wondering what the hell went wrong. Believe me, YETI did not make its decision flippantly. Believe me, YETI did their research. Turn a blind eye if you wish, bury your head in the sand if you want, but it’s only going to make matters worse in the long run.
Consider who drafted the Second Amendment (what body), the specific language used, and the time in which it was created and the conclusion is straightforward. I am speaking of being objective here, not of crafting a case to support a preferred viewpoint (it does none of us any good to twist truth to make a point).
The first amendment...not sure our founding fathers were able to forsee video...or the Internet...or campaign contributions treated as speech.Do you foresee any of the other amendments in the Bill of Rights no longer being relevant due to who drafted them, specific language used, or the time in which they were created?
CTDoland I have always had a lot of respect for your posts, but I have no idea what you are talking about in your last couple and the final sentence of this one. What I read is that "we should voluntarily give up on the 2d amendment as an individual right" - In part because you believe it isn't what the founders intended? Thus far, fortunately, the courts and most constitutional scholars think otherwise. Sure a liberal court could change that - just like a truly socialist majority could destroy the economic engine which makes this great national experiment of ours go.
I assume, though I may be wrong, you are suggesting we hunters and gun owners should sit down and reason with our opponents - perhaps offer up black guns or high capacity semi-automatic handguns? With whom exactly will that discussion take place? And who assures us the terms of that agreement will survive more than a week or until the next political campaign?
I think I am as aware as anyone about the current political and social trends. I choose to fight them as long as I am able. I personally believe that is the opposite of burying my head in the sand. I feel that way because in the current polarized environment, I do not believe there is a realistic alternative. Of course, I am guilty of reading of reading A. E. Van Vogt's "The Weapon Shops of Isher" for the first time when I was around 12.
With regard to Yeti, I also have some experience with corporate decisions. They are all too often made in isolation, or with the wrong information, or because of an incomplete or mistaken assessment of trends or motivations - often with disastrous effects on employees and shareholders. In this case, I remain convinced that Yeti was a victim of its owners' post-Parkland corporate culture. Cortec made this call, and I suspect they have ruined what was one of the more brilliant non-tech start-ups of this century. A shame.
