MEC: ignore ridiculous calls for boycotts.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


People are calling on MEC to boycott certain outdoor equipment manufacturers, because the parent company also manufactures firearms. In a day and age of giant corporations, somewhere down the line a parent company is going to be making a product or operating in a way you don't agree with. Let's be realistic. For example, Honeywell makes household and commercial thermostats, but also components for cruise missiles that kill hundreds or more a year. Are we to boycott them as well?

I call on MEC to ignore the raving lunatics who are willing to boycott you because in the most round about way the operation of your business earns income for an entirely separate company that also happens to make things they don't like.

I shop at MEC, and I am willing to stop spending money there if they cave to this childish action.
