The Ultimate Firearms Destination for the Gun Lifestyle

Here’s a List of Companies That Support Gun Control

Are you looking for a handy list of companies that support gun control? Well, today, 145 companies made it easier for you, clearly revealing their disregard for the Second Amendment and the principles of liberty and freedom.

First reported by the New York Times, the CEOs of 145 companies sent a letter to the U.S. Senate urgently calling for “background checks on all gun sales and a strong Red Flag law that would allow courts to issue life-saving extreme risk protection orders.” Citing recent events and their “responsibility and obligation to stand up for the safety of our employees, customers and all Americans,” they argue for so-called “common-sense” gun legislation.

The letter was signed by CEOs of large companies such as Bain Capital, Bloomberg, Brookfield Property Group, GAP, and Levi Strauss. Also signing were large advertising and media firms, such as Conde Nast, Group Nine Media, Havas, Interpublic, Omnicom, and Publicis, no surprise given the messaging on guns that we so often see. Also note the services and social media companies, such as Airbnb, DoorDash, Eventbrite, Lyft, Pinterest, Reddit, Twitter, Uber, and Yelp.

Below, we've provided a searchable, alphabetical list of the companies and executives who signed the letter. Incidentally, when you read breathless headlines on other news media about “145 of the biggest companies in America” supporting gun control, note that only 45 of them have more than 500 employees. 100 of them have fewer than 500 employees, and you'll probably need to google them to figure out what they do.

Whether it's due to virtue-signaling, free marketing to a portion of the country, or simply misguided beliefs, perhaps it's worth a hard look at where you're spending your time and money these days. Let them know how you feel.

The New York Times also published a copy of the actual letter.

      Read the actual article. These are CEOs who went out of their way to send a letter to congress. The author does not say it’s a comprehensive list of anti-gun companies.

      • JW says:

      Please provide a link or information that FedEx is
      anti gun. I have not seen that on there website.
