Delta And United Airlines Join Growing List Of Major Corporations Giving NRA The Finger

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is facing a huge public relations crisis after a deranged gunman in Florida killed 17 people during a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

And while the NRA and it’s puppets have trotted out their traditional defensive arguments and deflections, such as arguing for teachers to carry guns and blaming things like violent video games and movies, public sentiment seems to have shifted more against them than had been the case in the past.

Also, CNN’s town hall event featuring a condescending NRA spokesperson in Dana Loesch and an inept Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) didn’t help the NRA’s sinking poll numbers.

One thing that’s different about the response to this school shooting is the outcry from thousands of students across the U.S. Students are walking out of class and marching in protest to urge their lawmakers to change the gun laws. As a result, numerous big companies have decided to distance themselves from America’s biggest gun cult.

Joining the growing list of major corporations to abandon their association with the NRA are Delta and United airlines who both announced that they are ending their discount program for group travel to NRA events.

Car rental companies like Hertz, National, Avis, Enterprise, Budget, and Avis have ended similar programs. And two hotel chains also ended their partnerships with the NRA in recent years, Wyndham Worldwide and Best Western. And there’s mounting pressure on Amazon and Apple to pull NRATV from their media services.

While the NRA’s lost partnerships with other companies in the past, this seems to be a huge avalanche of professional partners distancing themselves quickly (and most likely permanently) from the organization.

Perhaps this time Americans have had enough of the NRA’s bullshit and will send a message at the polls throughout the year. It looks like political whores like Donald Trump and the Republican party may soon have to find a new sugar daddy to bankroll their campaigns.
