Costco anti 2a

Just let the costco store manager know I wouldn't be renewing my annual membership because of the corporate anti 2a stance they have.
Small potatoes but every little bit helps

Really? F me- I just bought an executive membership here in Wheaton because it is about to open, and I was told they had great deals.

I did notice that the gun safe they have on sale isn't called a gun safe, only a safe. There's no photo of the inside of the safe in the ad either.

I used the list from here -http://www.2acheck.com/the-boycott-list/
to get the list of companies that are anti 2a. Then i went to the company website to confirm.

Eh, they are also one of the few big corporations that pay a decent wage to their employees ($17/hour), and provide medical benefits, and the CEO/ co-founder Craig Jelinek insists on only accepting $550k a year in income. He has often refused to do many things that would have added to both the company's bottom line, and his own. He has the attitude that his employees and their quality of life are as important as quarterly profits. As long the company is profitable, and he makes a good income; there is no reason to screw people over to try and maximize his and the company's bottom line.
So, sorry, that trumps the company's anti-2a stance in my book. If every company operated this way (instead of only a handful), I might actually buy into the, Free-Market ramblings I often hear from libertarians.
