Seven Companies That Caved to Anti-NRA Pressure and Cut Ties With Five Million Members

The left is holding the NRA responsible for the school shooting and forcing companies to disassociate.

Seven companies caved to the pressure of the anti-NRA, #BoycottNRA movement this week and cut ties with the organization which ended discounts for the National Rifle Association’s five million members.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car and First National Bank of Omaha – which sponsored an NRA-related credit card – were the first to cut ties which opened the door for other companies to follow suit.

Metlife, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, and Best Western severed ties following the launch of a PR campaign which made the NRA its focal point following the February 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Ironically, the PR campaign targeted the NRA even though the NRA is one of the few entities talking specifics about school safety and promoting grants to economically challenged schools to be sure they get the same quality of safety that wealthier schools enjoy.

On February 22, First National Bank of Omaha tweeted it was ending its partnership with the NRA:

On that same day, Enterprise Rent-A-Car announced it would discontinue offering discounts to NRA members:

The next day, February 23, Symantec, a cyber-security company, and Metlife both announced they were terminating their relationship with the NRA.

On February 24 ABC News reported that Delta AirlinesUnited, and Best Western were breaking with the NRA, too.

This push to drive a wedge between businesses and the NRA began with a Think Progress report suggesting there are “at least 22 corporations that the NRA says offer incentives to NRA members.” That report was followed by an Ed Krassentein tweet listing the Twitter handles of many of the companies and urging anti-Second Amendment activists to put pressure on them and “demand change.”
