Second Amendment:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

by Shari Dovale

Michael Bloomberg has gained another big name in his quest to disarm the citizens of the United States. Levi Strauss has teamed up with Bloomberg’s controversial lobbyist group.

CEO and President Chip Bergh wrote in Fortune on Tuesday that the company “simply cannot stand by silently when it comes to issues that threaten the very fabric of the communities where we live and work.”

The blue jean manufacturer has donated more than $1 million to establish the Safer Tomorrow Fund. This group works with the Gabby Giffords group to disarm Americans.

They have also partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety to develop a branch called Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety. This is an organization that does not promote gun safety. Instead, they promote what they call “common-sense laws” which are designed to subvert the Second Amendment.

And, finally, they are promoting their politics in the workplace by offering double employee donation match for employees to donate to anti-gun causes, stating “we’re encouraging employees who are concerned about gun violence to get involved.”

Bergh goes on to say:

I’m not here to suggest we repeal the Second Amendment or to suggest that gun owners aren’t responsible. In fact, as a former U.S. Army officer, I took a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. But as retired four-star general Michael Hayden once said, “There are some weapons out there that frankly nobody should have access to. And actually, there are some people out there who should never have access to any weapons.”

Therefore, he claims to support the second amendment, but believes there are some people that should not have this right, as well as denying everyone access to select weapons. This does not seem to reflect “shall not be infringed”.

Bergh acknowledges that this position is controversial, but says, “And I’m convinced that while some will disagree with our stand to end gun violence, history will prove this position right too.“

Levi Strauss has shown in the past several decades that they will jump onboard with any current liberal policies, even to the point of producing ads that cannot be played in the United States due to their suggestive nature.

  1. It’s been nearly 30 years since I bought my last pair of Levi’s. When they quit selling through small town stores, raised their prices sky high, started using crappy foreign fabrics, and forced retailers to sell at a contracted price that only allowed the retailer to make a few pennies per pair of jeans sold (while Levi Strauss was enjoying a 60-70% markup) is the time that I decided they didn’t need my money.

    Instead, I support Texas Jeans and Buddy’s Jeans (heavy American denim put together in US factories for about 1/2 the price of Levi’s). If you want something different from the Western cut of Buddy’s Jeans and Texas Jeans, there are also Roundhouse Jeans and Wild Ass Jeans, both of which were cut for different purposes but are all American made and all cost about 1/2 as much as Levi’s.

    If I want crap jeans like Levi’s makes now, I go buy a pair of (made in Mexico) George brand jeans from Walmart. They are better-made than Levi’s Malaysian crap and are out of more durable fabric for about 1/6 the cost of Levi’s. Plus, I’d rather support some hard working Mexican’s than liberals that live off of slave labor in Asia any day.

  2. Ha ! I’m sure that many of us who are familiar with the GGs sophistry were waiting for it, and there it was, about halfway through Bergh’s apologia ” I support the Second Amendment – BUT !”.
