    It's not just Doritos and Fritos. Take a look here for the variety of junk (oops, sorry, snack) foods that they market.

    Frito Lay is a division of Pepsi-Cola Company, BTW.

    Never did like Pepsi. Somehow I'm not too hopeful that Coke is owned by anyone who considers themself pro-RKBA.

    No, it's not just Doritos and Fritos, it is also the Quaker Oats company, the makers of Captain Crunch!

    While I understand the frustration of doing business with someone whose politics are offensive, the fact is that boycotts seldom change politics nor hurt the business sufficiently to cause a change of policy.

    Boycotts hurt the consumer, who is depriving himself of a product that he would ordinarily enjoy. Or in the case of Pepsico, a wide ranging array of products. Frankly, I don't have the time to research the ultimate owner of every product I buy in order to determine their politics.

    I just saw the irony in Captain Crunch posting in this thread.

    Buy American, all other things equal.

    Man, that's an understatement!

    Oops!

    Actually, I've never believed in boycotts, either. If I did, I probably wouldn't be able to buy any consumer product, because virtually all companies do or say something I disagree with. So I don't let it concern me.

    And boycott Cap'n Crunch?

    Heaven forbid!

    Why not petition them to even things up by giving a BR!CK award to the founders of Students for Concealed Carry, who were instrumental in getting legislation going in several states to allow students to be able to defend themself in case of another VA Tech?

    Good idea. I'm not holding my breath on it though.

    I understand Frito-Lay's position on this one. They are just honoring the students that earned the award, they don't have to support the political position of the person. It's almost the same as when a TV station, newspaper or magazine put on someone that they don't agree with, but deserves to be heard or receive recognition.

    I'm looking at it this way. I may not agree with the kid's position on guns, but at least the kid is doing something. He's getting involved in the process and trying to make a difference by working for what he believes in. Too many people today just sit back and let somebody else make their decisions for them. Kudos to the kid for at least staying out of trouble and doing something to further his beliefs. We all have the ability to do the same thing he's doing, support our own beliefs and make as much of an impact.

    Besides, he's still young and he's probably never been exposed to legal use of firearms, just the violent act he witnessed. Maybe he'll eventually see the light with some proper education. Wouldn't that be a coup? Stealing one of the Brady Bunch's poster boys?

    Also, my wife is a huge fan of Pepsi and love's Muncho's, my kids love Dorito's and Cheeto's and Cap'n Crunch, etc.. A boycott of them would never work in this house. Unless one of you wants to let me sleep on your couch until it's over.
