Turning Down Bloomberg

Greg thinks the same way I do, and will turn down jobs with companies that locate in anti-gun jurisdictions, and are with companies owned by certain people that like to poop on the constitution. I would be up front with the employer as to exactly why you won’t relocate, “I’m a sport shooter, and I’d have to give that up to move to New York City. I’m not going to do that. I also don’t appreciate what your Mayor is doing to my second amendment rights in that regard.”

Once employers realize, especially in tech fields which are awash with People of the Gun, that they are losing out on good employees because of these laws, they might start locating in better places.

  1. I’ve explicitly told that to recruiters in California before. I’ve turned down jobs in Maryland for similar reasons as well. I didn’t even bother replying to this latest one though.

    I guess it’s nice to have people actually want to recruit you…

    Or it must be nice to have enough people interested in recruiting you that you can be that geographically selective. Or your lives allow you to be that geographically selective regardless. Ideals are great and all, but sometimes there just ain’t no way around it.
