Guns.com issues vaccine mandate for all employees, including remote workers

Guns.com, one of the industry’s top websites for gun-related news, reviews, and a not-too-new firearm and accessory marketplace, has recently implemented a Covid-19 vaccine mandate for all employees, including remote workers. While the move has been seen as forward-thinking by some, others aren’t so convinced that it was such a smart move.

The company announced their decision the last day of September in a company-wide email that was sent out less than an hour before close-of-day. The company, which just celebrated its 10-year anniversary, is mandating that all employees provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before November 15. Without it, employment with Guns.com will be terminated as of that date.

While two exceptions are provided — or rather applications for exemption — some employees have little faith in them. The medical exemption, for example, provides a list of conditions which are not considered valid reasons for opting out of the Covid vaccine. This includes any autoimmune disorder. Just to reiterate, even if you are immune compromised, Guns.com still requires you to get the jab. And then there’s a religious exemption, which has historically been a “can’t touch this” kind of document. The Guns.com religious exemption wants employees to identify and explain their sincerely held religious beliefs which preclude the vaccine, in addition to indicating whether you have asked for such an exemption from previous employers, the outcome of that exemption, and the company with which the religious exemption was submitted. They also require you to explain “whether you are opposed to all vaccines, and if not, the religious basis on which you object to the Covid-19 vaccine in particular (as opposed to other vaccines).”

We should always be careful with anonymous sources, but in this case an inquiry was made to Mr. Greg Minkler who responded and stated “no comment.”  If it wasn’t true, it would have been easy enough to deny it and renounce such a mandate.

This is an awful look for Guns.com.

I’ll wait, but until I learn otherwise, I’ll never link Guns.com again, and won’t even read them.

If this is true, they are dead to me.

    My exemption would be a copy of the medical Nuremburg code. With a couple picture of those hanged for violating it. “Looking forward to new management.”

    Well said people.
    And I think right now this is the answer?
    Much of what is being done to use by gov is without legal authority – there is no law. Rather the gov is coercing, prodding, suggesting companies enact… fine. No more customers for you!
    Vote with your wallet. These corporate types are all spineless sycophants. The money stops coming in, the policy will change.

    Does Guns.com also support “common sense gun control laws”?

    You would think that people whose livelihoods are dependent upon liberty and freedom from oppression would have a better understanding of the meaning and history of those concepts.

    To see corporation after corporation mandate the jab or unemployment with nothing but a threat of invoking mandates from the alleged president is disconcerting.

    May they all suffer catastrophic financial consequences as a result of abusing their employees.

    I took five minutes and let them know through their “contact us” part of the website that guns go hand in hand with freedom and that vax mandates are tyranny and that I would be spreading the word

    All this pandemic nonsense is revealing what folks are really like. Guns.com did us all a favor. They are the enemy. Such information is useful.

    Based on the bee-ess going on with hospitals, they will deny ANY religious exemption on the grounds that exempting ‘will create a burden’ that the employer cannot work with.

    Careful who you deal with out there. There’s many a wolf in sheeps clothing. Don’t feed em.

    I have autoimmune issues, so no vaxx for me. But to hear of a company that says to their employees with similar health issues, “we don’t care, get the jab?” Dead to me. They might as well go out of business. I will never shop there again.

    And I will urge others in the 2A community to drop them as well. Spread the word–bankruptcy for guns.com is just three months away.

    Thanks for the info. Always good to know who the enemy are – especially if they pretend to be in our camp.
