From the Vol. 6, No. 46 - 11/24/99 NRA-ILA Fax Alert:
According to a Nov. 19 New York Daily News story, Rosie O’Donnell and Kmart are severing their ties. The article notes O’Donnell’s acknowledgment of her inconsistency in supporting gun control while promoting Kmart (one of the nation’s largest sellers of firearms and ammunition), causing her to conclude, “It’s only fair to Kmart that I stop doing commercials.” O’Donnell’s spokeswoman confirmed that Rosie will continue to be “proactive in her gun control efforts.” The article notes Kmart sources gave O’Donnell her walking papers because it had grown tired of the negative publicity her gun stance was bringing them. Members who wish to contact Kmart to praise this decision may reach them at (800) 63-KMART (56278), or at http://www.kmart.com/b_cust/index.htm (use the “comment” option).
The following is my original page on the subject:
Hunters! Target Shooters! Gun Owners Of All Types!
This K-MART Spokesperson Said:
New York Press
Rosie O'Donnell, said on her talk show last week: "I honestly think -- and I am not an expert on the amendments -- I think the only people in this nation who should be allowed to own guns are the police officers.
I don't care if you want to hunt. I don't care if you think it's your right. I say, 'Sorry.' It is 1999.
We have had enough as a nation. You are not allowed to own a gun, and if you do own a gun I think you should go to prison."
Such bigotry has no place in a spokesperson for a store that expects to sell to the people being demonized. Until Rosie issues an apology or K-MART discontinues using her as a spokesperson all gun owners and freedom loving people of all types should take their business elsewhere.
