Major Company Forms Gun Control Group
Article from the Washington Free Beacon by Stephen Gutowski.
Levi Strauss announced on Tuesday it would be creating a new gun-control group with billionaire Michael Bloomberg and donating millions of dollars to a collection of established gun-control groups.
The clothing company said it would be partnering with Everytown for Gun Safety and Michael Bloomberg to form Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety in a blogposton their website. It also said it would set up the Safer Tomorrow Fund, which Levi Strauss said would direct more than $1 million over the next four years to “fuel the work of nonprofits and youth activists who are working to end gun violence in America.” The company went on to say it would begin doubling the amount it matches for employee donations to gun-control groups aligned with the fund and pushed employees to use their five hours a month in paid volunteer time at the gun-control groups.
Levi Strauss said while they had already requested customers not carry firearms in their store in 2016 and had supported gun-control initiatives in the past, they felt they needed to become more politically involved in the issue.
“We have a gun violence epidemic in America, and companies like ours—that operate in American communities—can no longer watch from the sidelines,” a Levi Strauss spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon. “Although LS&Co. has taken some action to support gun-violence prevention over the last two decades, we believe there is a bigger role that business can play in effecting real change. Through our newly established Safer Tomorrow Fund and involvement in the Everytown Business Leaders for Gun Safety coalition, we hope to catalyze others to join us and be part of stemming gun violence in this country.”

Good bye Levi. was nice knowing you, but there are many other brands of jeans made by company s that are pro 2nd amendment.
These idiots are leaving the door wide open for enterprising Americans to start pro America companies.
Maybe Bloomberg will buy your overpriced unsold jeans
Nothing new about Levi Strauss opposing self protection with superior force. It abandoned conservatism 15 years ago when it moved out of the U.S. and Canada and stopped making denim trousers for men. It owned the market until the company turned left. Now Levi’s no longer are men’s apparel.
DESTROY all the spoons, knives, and forks, plates, too– and the over-eating epidemic will be solved– after all, aren’t fat people just so dang GROSS ! Just think, LS, you won’t have to make anymore jeans for FAT PEOPLE saving lots of jean material for us deserving OH SO thin people!!! BUT BUILD THAT WALL to keep out any folks smuggling in any forks, plates, pots, pans — you name it ! MAKE IT part of our sharia law– gotta eat with the right hands– fingers only ! AND relentlessly pursue the infidels who don’t !! DOWN WITH FORK-USING infidels— off with their heads !! BURN THEM IN CAGES !!
Levi’s have been going downhill for years now. The quality is gone. I have not had a pair last more than 2 months. So them supporting anti American gun control is the last nail in the coffin. No more levi’s for me.
What do you expect from a forign company? Screw Nike too.
Buy American made pants,,,,And shoes too.
Wranglers and Redwings are better quality too.
No more Levi’s in my house or any of my family. Stupid Levi turncoats, may you all go bankrupt and take your low life friends with you or at least leave my country and go to a gun free country. You bottom feeding dummies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BYE, BYE, LEVI STRAUSE-RETURNING YOUR JEANS THAT I JUST BOUGHT YESTERDAY, SENDING THIS ARTICLE TO ALL KINFOLK AND FRIENDS…..SAM’S HAS GOOD QUALITY JEANS.
