COMPANIES WITHDRAWING SUPPORT FROM NRA

CNN—Bowing to public pressure, the following companies have withdrawn support from the NRA, no longer offering discounts and asking that their company’s information be removed from the NRA website:

 

NORTH AMERICAN MOVING SERVICES

ALAMO

AVIS

DELTA AIRLINES

UNITED AIRLINES

HERTZ

FIRST NATIONAL BANK

MET LIFE

BUDGET

BUDGET NATION

NORTON

LIFE LOCK

ALLIED

 

This list grew over night, and it is expected more companies, listening to the needs of their customers, will be added to the list.

In addition, great pressure is being placed on Amazon, Roku, and other global companies.

 

So, good to see that the NRA, which has frightened its members with lies and propaganda for decades is finally feeling blow back.

karma is a B!

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

@BrentlyB498639 I'm a bit confused being that I'm a Full Blooded Native American, I would like to know what you consider a real american( after all your ancestors came across the big pond)? I don't support the national republican army, does that mean I need to move to china? For the record I, unlike most gun nuts, own  pre-ban full automatic weapons. One of the perks of being Native American.

I too hope that this is a “moment of movement” on the gun issues. Assault weapons have no legitimacy under the Second Amendment, nor deserve being defended. It’s an apple and an orange. Only trump and the nra try to bring out a metal welder and try to join an apple and orange. Doesn’t work and they only look silly trying to do that. And yes, 

“We the People” do notice. 

It will be interesting to see what effect that withdrawal of corporate funding will have on the nra. In retrospect, hannity, within the last year made a real botch up over an issue and several sponsors withdrew from his program, but he is still here! Anyone have any insight on that?

Hannity has the brain of a flea, but he's a trained flea who will spout whatever nonsense supports the GOPerLords and libels Progressives, so the GOPerLords keep him. Expect him to advance the notion that the students from Florida are actually child actors, and its a mental health issue not a gun issue, and that will keep him on the air no matter how many truly stupid OTHER things he repeats.

 

Now if these kids can hang together and realize the solution for better mental health is single payer Universal health care which means the first step is removing NRAGOP from elected office AND the solution for mass murder is eliminating the semi-auto guns ant everything that allows them to shoot more than 8 times before reloading, and that the NRAGOP is ALSO the only ones blocking that so they must be removed from elected office, their tragic loss will have a very positive outcome: Better health, including mental health for all AND no more mass murders.

FOXis corrupt—look how long they kept Ailes and O’Reiley—just to mention two.

 

 And the NRA is getting smoked. They are sending their corrupt mouthpieces out all over the country to tell their members that it is the media’s  fault that we are having masd shooting. That the media loves the Mass shooting because it raises their ratings.  aside from the fact that this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, the gullible’s will buy it.  

If I ever had any doubts that this organization was black hearted, evil, sub human, and corrupt, I no longer have those doubts.

FOX????  The obsession comes through again.

 

As to telling people that we have "masd shootings" because they get the attention they want and others want too - is that not a fact?

Best Western may now be added to the list of companies who will no longer support the crooked NRA.

CNN says the withdrawl of support from the NRA is the result of intense consumer pressure,

Glad the majority of Americans seem to have morals and a sense of right and wrong, unlike the “so called” president, Republicans, and the base, who support all that is dark, wrong, and immoral.

As one of "WE THE PEOPLE" - the majority  comprised of honest, honorable, patriotic American Citizens - WE are unquestionably not part of the minority - the FSB/SVR/NRA/GOP and their Russian bots, foxbots, and CPAC racists and bigots...

WE - of the majority - care more about the nation's future well being and continued existence - as it has for the last two plus centuries - than Grotesquely Obscene Plutocrats/Pedophiles - that desire a fascist/oligarchic right wing dictatorship...

@alferdpacker

Three cheers for your perspective of what it means to be a patriot and an American citizen. As you point out, it’s actually pretty simple to be supportive of our country, and we know when we are being fed a lot of trump’s self centered gobbledygook, and then hear how his supporters try to rationalize how we should be appreciative of all of the great things that he is doing for us...pardon me, but I am not appreciative of being driven into a concrete wall at 80 mph. And his supporters cannot and will not see that if he stays in office, there is disaster on the horizon. No sugar coating here. trump is an ill wind blowing across our nation, and the world. This is what happens when a selfish child is put in charge of running our country, who only cares about himself and money. 

 

Stay strong and be truthful

Well of course - if it weren't for "uppity lefties" who didn't listen to the English King and all the other grossly dishonest English Righties - told them to bleep off - treasonously took up arms against the corrupt and dishonest government of the time - just like trump's dishonest administration of this time - and kicked out the crooks and liars - there wouldn't be a nation for trump and his liars and crooks to be attempting to corrupt and steal from "We The People"- the true patriots of this nation...

 

It's in the best traditions of our Founding Fathers to hold up the middle finger to trump and want to throw the crook and liar and all his fellow crooks and liars out of office - after all -  there's no doubt that they have always been far too dishonset and corrupt to ever have deserved to be allowed to remain in office...

THE CONSTITUTION GREAT!  That means you support EQUAL RIGHTS for all AND equal justice for all.  Right?

 

AND AMERICA!  Great!  Most Americans do, whether you support their views or not....

 

DO NOT USE ANY AARP DOLLARS TO SUPPORT DEMOCRATS  Who are you specifically ranting to?  (THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS)!!!  So you don't want AARP to support Bernie Sanders, eh?  I'm not sure they do.  Do you think they should support the dictator in the Republican Communist Party?  Just curious.... 

 

IF YOU DON’T LIKE AMERICA, as they say, “AMERICA, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!”  "They" are Moron's.  I guess you could leave AARP too, if you so desire.  Most rational adults support the idea that in a democracy, if you don't like something you vote to change it.  Agree?
