#BoycottNRA Movement Gains Steam, Companies Cut Ties
UPDATE: Delta and United airlines also cut their ties with the NRA.
Enterprise Holdings, First National Bank of Omaha and Symantec have ended their partnerships with the National Rifle Association (NRA) due to the #BoycottNRA movement.
Enterprise used to offer rental car discounts to NRA members, reports The Washington Post, but tweeted a statement on Feb. 21:
All three of our brands have ended the discount for NRA members.
First National Bank of Omaha ended its “Official Credit Card of the NRA” partnership with the NRA in a tweeted statement:
Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA. As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card.
Symantec announced on Twitter the end of its discount program with the NRA.
The #BoycottNRA hashtag began trending on social media after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14.
The massacre brought a spotlight on the NRA, which accepts millions from gun manufacturers. The NRA, in turn, contributes millions to pro-gun politicians.
