    Boycott Vista outdoor NRA Giro Camelbak Bell
    For those who are not fans of the NRA please join me in boycotting Vista Outdoors products. Turns out these guys support the NRA who I do not.
    Vista Outdoors sells Camelbak, Giro, Blackburn, and Bell bike components.
    REI has suspended their relationship with Vista Outdoors.

    Here are some of the other brands
    Bushnell, CamelBak, Camp Chef, Primos, Bollé, Bell, Giro, Serengeti, Jimmy Styks, Cébé, RCBS, Hoppe’s, Uncle Mike’s, Gold Tip, Weaver, Blackburn, Krash!, Copilot, Raskullz, and Tasco

    Why is this posted in Apparel and Protection? Post your political views in Off Camber, not here.

    So all of the employees of these companies have to suffer to support your political views?

    I have a problem with people/political organisations who believe it is right to bully others into doing what they want. That's not democracy, it's dictatorship. Heaven help us if you idiots ever get your hands on real power.

    Keep up the great work! Do you feel better now?

    Oh by the way- Are you also boycotting the Broward County Sheriff and the FBI? They had had almost 50 warnings that this maniac would do something horrible.

    Enjoy your boycott. I'll be at the range with my federal ammo on this rainy day.

    You are making common Leftist mistakes.

    You assume that all reasonable people will agree with you and take your side. The idea that you might be wrong or that others might have logical reasons to disagree with you doesn't enter your head. You are therefor shocked when we don't just line up to wave your flag.

    Also, you think you can just keep pushing until you get what you want. Politics is banned on this forum, and for very sensible reasons, yet you keep posting the same Leftist agenda fuelled thing in the expectation that we will see reason and allow you to continue?

    Try to understand and abide by the rules and ethos of the forum or leave.

    Let me give you a tip. If you're going to bother, at least get the relevant brands in your message. Vista owns ammo producers CCI, Federal and Speer.

    REI should worry more about how much their clothing suppliers pay their employees in china to make $100 shirts and $150 pants that cost $3-4.

    No shit, these people are idiots.

    Everyone is always willing to boycott something they don't need.

    Wonder if shit for brains walks everywhere because of what fossil fuels do to planet. OP can't ride a bike because of what manufacturing one does to the planet.

    Just imagine if people were trying to infringe on the 19th amendment.

    I am joining NRA and buying all the new Giro , Blackburn and Camelbak products I can afford. Go after the root of the problem, not the tools used.

    Boycott Vista outdoor NRA Giro Camelbak Bell
    FYI: It looks like REI feels this is valid. They're going to stop carrying Vista Sports (Camebak, etc).

    There’s one or two other stores who are stopping carrying vista sports too, but I can’t find it right offhand.

    These threads feel like spam. Several of these threads exist in different forums. OP shows up, posts some stupid bs about boycotting, then disappears. Never seem to reply to people on the other side.

    Just because they are bowing to political blackmail doesn't necessarily mean they think it's valid.
