Intuit Informed Gunsite That They Were Ceasing All Business With Them

BY Herschel Smith

Via reader Fred Tippens, Bearing Arms:

Now, Gunsite is trying to process this stuff through another company, so I hope they can recover most, if not all, of the money, but I also hope they take Intuit to court over these shenanigans. This isn’t right on any level. At all.

More than that, though, this is the kick of thing that needs to be punished. Intuit needs to be fought on this stuff each and every time it tries this if at all possible. It needs to be forced to figure this into its decision-making matrix before it pulls this with other companies.

The irony? If it wants people to be safer with guns, places like Gunsite are the kind of places it should support. It should want people to go there, train there, learn there, then bring it home to share that knowledge with their fellow gun owners. The reason is that Gunsite is known for being a very safe training academy, something everyone should want to support.

But no. They sell guns, so they must be punished, apparently.

Let that be a lesson to anyone else who has a gun-related business. Now you know who not to do business with.

Oh, it’s much more complicated than that, Tom.  This is another installment, albeit small, in the multifront war on gun owners and gun manufacturers, this time with the flavor of the day being training.

I’ve discussed it in detail, my readers know all about it.  The war is escalating.  The only good thing, as I’ve pointed out, is that the enemy has told us his strategy.  We should listen.

Not everything out there is bad news.  There are some upstart gun makers coming on line.

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Business owners in Broken Arrow said downturns in the oil and gas industry has pushed them to manufacture guns instead.

The owners of RISE Armament in Broken Arrow said they started the company in 2013 to focus on manufacturing oil, gas and aerospace equipment. A downturn in the industry, however, changed their plans.

Now, the company manufacturers AR-15 rifles.

The owners told FOX23 that the business near Kenosha and the Broken Arrow Expressway received new machinery this week that will allow them to increase manufacturing numbers.

They said the engineers they employ were able to transfer their previous industry skills to making weapons. They believe that they have been able to make their designs unique.

The owners said they are glad they made the business shift in 2015. They said they can now produce more than 1,600 triggers each week and feel they will soon expand even further.

Good.  I see that Rise Armament makes nice looking rifles, even if a wee bit on the pricey side.

Take this tip from us fellows.  Don’t get yourself entangled with corporate America, and work your logistics train with as little reference to major banks as possible.  Keep us posted on your progress.

A quick note – I do parts, component and gun reviews.  Just sayin’.

    Exactly. Right now, Americans who support the right to keep and bear arms are on the defensive – taking attacks from companies like Inuit, Bank of America and so on. That should end; it is time to go on the offensive. Not with bullets, but with dollars and market share – the language corporate American understands.

    Refuse, to the extent possible, to do business or support in any way – any individual, business or corporation which does not support the Second Amendment and other rights and liberties enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Vote with your wallet and checkbook – and encourage others to do the same. Hit ’em where it hurts – right in the profit-and-loss statement… right in the wallet.

    Exactly! After the recent Youtube rules targeting gun content, I took great pleasure in installing an adblock add-on. I find that uBlock added to firefox makes NONE of the ads that Youtube uses to earn revenue appear. I understand that the Brave browser accomplishes much the same thing. Since serving content from a site like Youtube costs a lot, I get to bleed an anti-gun company while watching the remaining gun content.

    @ BRVTVS

    Right on, brother – that’s how you do it!

    As for myself, four or five years ago, I somehow read the tea leaves that Dick’s Sporting Goods was going bad, and haven’t given them a dime of my business since then. Even then, it was pretty apparent even at the local store that they were getting weak in the knees regarding firearms – but the thing which did it for me was the evident extent to which they had bought into the thug culture of the NBA and NFL. Two more businesses whose product I no longer support with my time and dollars. So, leaving them behind wasn’t hard at all.

    Dick’s is now on a rather lengthy list of businesses, celebrities and causes I no longer support.

    On the other side of that ledger, I have – also in my head – a rather lengthy list of individuals and businesses who have done something conspicuous to earn my time and financial support, such as supporting traditional values, the Bill of Rights, or the right to keep/bear arms. These get as much of my support as I can manage, and I also encourage others of a like mind to support them as well.

    As for Rise Armament, I have one of their RA140 trigger groups and it’s quite good. I got it years back at the introductory price, under $100, after seeing a post about it at The Firearm Blog. Recently I saw one at OpticsPlanet, bundled with anti-walk pins (necessary), for $120 IIRC.

    The People must not be allowed access to The Knowledge, for The Knowledge will set them free.

    In this particular case, The Knowledge is how to handle and operate a firearm safely and responsibly.

    For now, merchant credit card processing is very competitive, and other card processors that will be happy to bid for Gunsite’s business.
