And if you think Mr. Smith is your average citizen outraged by the decision by a business to make some money, think again. He's a long term anti-gun advocate who has been involved in (failed) lawsuits opposing self-defense:
“A loaded concealed weapon in a bar is a recognized hazard,” said David Randolph Smith, a lawyer who represents the waiter and is preparing to appeal the decision. “I have a right to go into a restaurant or bar and not have people armed. And of course, the waiter has a right to a safe workplace.”I wonder how he thinks he has that 'right'? Even though crime has been dropping regularly and there hasn't been 'wild west shootouts' and 'blood in the streets', he continues w/ his case of clinical denial:
These gun laws + the absurd no retreat stand your ground law are a recipe for vigilantism & guerrilla warfare.This is in response to a case where a man walking his dogs was threatened and attacked by violent gang members. We see where his sympathies lie.
So the Woolrich 'boycott' is, like the Starbucks boycott, only going to be endorsed by a fanatical fringe element of society while the company rakes in the money.
