Has anyone come across a list of businesses, corporations or franchise chains that support the gun control movement?

'Seems like there should be some place online to check before giving our hard-earned dollars away to the antis by way of everyday business transactions.

There probably is a list and one of the members will no doubt have it if one does exist.
However I know of a few just off hand that I avoid because of their anit gun support.

Bic----Pens/lighters
Hallmark----Greeting cards
Pepseco-----Soda pop, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell

We live in a time in which attitudes and deeds once respected as courageous and honorable are now scorned as being antiquated and subversive.

Here is NRA's list, not only of companies, but also not-for-profit groups and celebrities (unfortunately, no citations of what actions they took):

Scan halfway down for the companies.

Citigroup / Citibank is on here, so it appears complete. Here are the companies, per that site:

Makes me sick!!! I checked out the NRA list of celebs. What a bunch of losers!! I got a list sent to me last year, it has really grown! Oh well, some of these jerks need something to keep them in the spotlight. How about Jon BON JOVI? HA, HA, I heard he forced them to let him in the YOUNG GUNS 2 movie or he wouldn't do the soundtrack! " please let me play with the gun!" " my mommy never left me have one" boo hooo! Makes me mad as hell!! OK, please calm me down, how about a few pro-gunners? I know about Tom Selleck, Tom Clancy, Nolin Ryan, and my own personal hero... " the motor city mad man"... "the Whack Master" .... "the Gonzo one"..... TED NUGENT!!!!! cocked,locked,and ready to rock doc!!!! Any others????
CJB
P.S. there are alot of model citizens on that antis list... check it out!

Not sure if he is pro-gun but I will go out on a limb since I have a video of him blasting a deer.
