We saw it coming years ago when the Obama regime deployed the Justice Department and various federal agencies to target â€˜politically incorrectâ€™ industries using â€œOperation Choke Point,â€ and weâ€™ve seen it continued by virtue-signaling corporations like Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods: The Left has launched a full-out assault on the right to sell and market firearms, since they canâ€™t get rid of the Second Amendment.
The Obama regime is no more, but the Marxist assault against guns and gun rights has continued as Left-wing tech firms increasingly employ economic terrorism and discrimination by threatening and punishing companies that continue to do firearms-related business.
AsÂ reported by Ammoland, the latest is Salesforce, a Silicon Valley giant that is now demanding all clients using their cloud-based customer relationship management services stop selling popular AR-15 rifles (and other gun-related gear) or give up using their software.
â€œThe San Francisco tech giant boasts of a full suite of software as a service (SaaS) solutions to help customers manage their current customer base and use advanced analytics and marketing automation to acquire new clients. Salesforce has over 100,000 users with some spending over $1,000,000 a year on the services,â€ Ammoland reports.
Salesforce has placed gun retailers in a difficult position, and purposefully so. Retail outlets like Camping World Holdings is nearly completely dependent on Salesforce software platforms in order to get items shipped and out for marketing purposes.
Unless the company, parent of the Gander Mountain brand, ceases and desists in selling the popular semi-automatic, magazine-fed rifles, then Salesforce will boot them off the platform when their contract runs out, Ammoland reported.
â€œThe company has also banned the sale of 80% lowers, barrel shrouds, and flash hiders,â€ the website reported. â€œAny rifle chambered in .50 BMG, and the round itself is also forbidden. Most bizarrely the company has banned the sale of stocks with thumb holes, but it is still OK to sell pistol grips for semi-automatic rifles.â€
Marc Benioff, the current CEO of Salesforce, founded the company in 1999, and heâ€™s 100 percent anti-gun. Ammoland noted that on February 15, 2018, he tweeted, â€œThe AR-15 is the most popular rifle in America. Ban it.â€
Because thatâ€™s what authoritarian Leftists do: TheyÂ donâ€™t compromise, accommodate, or care what the Constitution says.Â Ban,Â censor, andÂ extinguish rightsÂ they donâ€™t agree with is all they understand.
And yet, POTUS Donald Trump is a â€˜tyrant?â€™
