NRA: Corporate attacks on law-abiding members a ‘shameful display of political and civic cowardice’

On Saturday, Breitbart reported that the National Rifle Association (NRA) responded to corporate attacks on millions of law-abiding members by calling them “shameful” displays of “political and civic cowardice.”

The more than five million law-abiding members of the National Rifle Association have enjoyed discounts and cost-saving programs from many American corporations that have partnered with the NRA to expand member benefits,” the organization said in a statement, adding:

Since the tragedy in Parkland, Florida, a number of companies have decided to sever their relationshipwith the NRA, in an effort to punish our members who are doctors, farmers, law enforcement officers, fire fighters, nurses, shop owners and school teachers that live in every American community.  We are men and women who represent every American ethnic group, every one of the world’s religions and every form of political commitment.

The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement.

Despite that, some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice. In time, these brands will be replaced by others who recognize that patriotism and determined commitment to Constitutional freedoms are characteristics of a marketplace they very much want to serve.

Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world.

Breitbart listed a number of companies that have caved to pressure from far-left groups like Think Progress and plan to sever ties with the organization:

  • First National Bank of Omaha
  • Enterprise Rent-A-Car
  • Symantec
  • Metlife
  • Delta Airlines
  • United
  • Best Western
  • Alamo Rent a Car
  • Avis
  • Allied Van Lines
  • Budget
  • Chubb Insurance
  • Hertz
  • North American Van Lines
  • Paramount Rx
  • SimpliSafe
  • TrueCar

Delta, as we reported yesterday, is set to receive some $40 million in tax breaks if some lawmakers in Georgia have their way.   A grassroots movement has sprung up to deny Delta those breaks after it essentially declared war on millions of law-abiding Americans.
