Over 145 CEOs of major companies, including Uber, Levi-Straus and Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital have signed onto a letter calling on the Senate to pass gun control and take away the rights of law abiding American citizens, as Reuters reports:
“More than 100 chief executives of some of the nation’s most well-known companies on Thursday called on the U.S. Senate to take action to tackle gun violence, including expanding background checks and strengthening so-called red flag laws, according to media reports.
In a letter to lawmakers, 145 company heads urged meaningful action following a string of mass shootings across the United States that have most recently left communities reeling in Texas, Ohio, Nevada and South Carolina.
“Doing nothing about America’s gun violence crisis is simply unacceptable and it is time to stand with the American public on gun safety,” the letter to the Republican-led U.S. Senate said, according to the New York Times, which first reported the correspondence.
Those signing the missive include the heads of Gap Inc , Levi Strauss & Co, and Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. They also included Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd , Uber Technologies Inc, Twitter Inc, and Amalgamated Bank, among others.
“We are writing to you because we have a responsibility and obligation to stand up for the safety of our employees, customers and all Americans in the communities we serve across the country,” they said, according to the Times.”
This is despicable and those CEO’s should be ashamed of themselves. No conservative should ever do business with any of these companies ever again.
