    We ARE flipping victims to the gun zealots and angry white men with weapons of massacre and mayhem. Nearly 600 victims at the last NRA event in Vegas.

    Calling citizens victims isn't insulting, it's accurate.

    If all trends continue we should expect more victims in the foreseeable future.

    I only get frustrated when people's actions and arguments seem to be inconsistent with their stated goals, as I see in this discussion.

    A boycott takes large numbers of people to make work. I don't think you will get them so long as you (speaking broadly of you, not you individually) choose to use lies and false propaganda. As we have seen so many times in the past, it only makes advocates a laughing stock.
    Can you please stop making inaccurate guesses as to what frustrates me?
    Economic boycotts don't require that many individuals. Think of North Carolina and the mess over transgender bathrooms. All it took was the NCAA and a few businesses to say they would no longer hold conferences etc. in the Tar Heel state for the things to start to turn around.

    Think about what is already happening in LV. The Wyndham Hotel is now randomly scanning guests for firearms. That started LESS than a week after the latest massacre. Why are they doing that? I think is because they are trying to get ahead of the fallout.

    Granted, LV is far more liberal than the rest of the state regarding gun control, but it can't afford to lose $$$, and it is always all about the $$$.

    Actually financial boycott is a lot more feasible than your suggestion of changing the minds of individual NRA members. That may take forever, and be impossible. And truthfully, I don't care what those people think, and I am not interested in changing their minds.

    Did Nelson Mandela come to power because the majority of White South Africans changed their minds? No. It was the country being isolated and hurt financially. The $$$ always wins!
