List of safe Big Box companies that don’t let armed people through the door

Courtesy: Moms Demand Action
I’m not much for supporting Big Box companies. I also don’t shop for a hobby – or even window shop, and I can count on my fingers the number of times in a decade that I set foot in a mall. But I do occasionally shop in a grocery store or watch a movie, so this list is useful even for me. Because I’d rather support a business any day that’s serious about keeping patrons safe, than one that enables “armed creeps”. Wouldn’t you?

Charlie Self, who composed the list, says:

Here’s the extracted list of Big Box companies that don’t allow armed creeps in the door. I think it’s great. My feeling is that if you want to shop fully armed, move to Somalia. These are the good guys.

    1. The list was originally a list of stores that some gun nuts wanted to boycott. Charlie Self extracted the list and put a positive spin on it. Do go shop there. Do NOT boycott these stores.
