    I will never purchase another GE product again.

    GE does business with worst scum on planet earth including Islamic Jihadists and Chinese Communists.
    However, law-abiding American Gun owners are just too much.

    Hey CEO Jeff Immelt! FUCK YOU!

    Fight back and Stick it to GE!

    Won't even have an effect. Gun sales are at an all time high. They are just leaving money on the table when gun purchasers are making tons of moves. This does nothing. These reactionary measures only end up further galvanizing 2nd Amendment supporters and getting them to buy more guns. The more the anti-gun rights crowd pushes the pro-gun rights crowd pushes back ten times harder. It's usually a losing war when you fight against civil rights in this country.

    How can libtards complain about bush and Halliburton and ignore the obvious Obama and ge link? Corporations have government influence on both parties... Either accept it all or damn it all, but please don't be Howard and out yourself as a hypocrite.

    P.s. ge also pays zero taxes.

    Gun shops are evil.

    The Iranian government is not. It seems.

    Thats how most corporations work. If you want goods cheaper, this is how it happens. Want to pay more for a fridge or microwave? Have them pay all the taxes. USA has some of the most strict corporation taxes and this needs to change. If they lower them, more companies will have their headquarters here, hence more money.

    Not a big deal. No need to boycott GE. Gun sales have been through the roof lately. A buddy of mine that lives in PA told me that the price of bullets has doubled in the past 2 years. If this trend continues the gun industry will be giving GE loans soon.

    The trend won't continue (thankfully.) At least not unless the Democrats pick up a huge number of seats in the midterm elections. The availability of guns and ammo is starting to come back and prices are (slowly) dropping...although it's still near impossible to find 9mm ammo and 22LR is still scarce.

    I feel bad for all the slightly paranoid folks who were buying Magpul PMags for $60 a pop and spending $2000+ for standard AR15s at the height of the drought. People were buying up anything they can, at any price, in hopes to make a profit off of it after a ban. Now that the ban didn't happen (this time) they took a HUGE hit.

    Then you're an asshole.

    I've not advocating a boycott.
    Boycotts don't work.

    I'm saying if you find the hypocrisy from GE as offensive as I do, hurt them in their wallet.
    Take your money elsewhere.

    I'll be replacing GE products with competitors products.
