Gun control activist David Hogg’s boycott and protests against Publix grocers hurts funding for same-sex marriage and abortion.

He targeted Publix because they gave nearly $700,000 to pro-gun gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam (R).

Hogg’s protest included a “die in” in the aisles of a Publix store and chalk outlines of 17 persons on a Publix parking lot:

Publix agreed to cease donations to Putnam following the protests. However, so as to be fair to all customers, they also announced they would cease donations to more liberal-leaning causes too. These include donations that would go toward same-sex marriage and abortion.
