It’s literally become impossible to have a national discussion about anything these days. On Thursday, three major car rental companies buckled after threats of boycotts from anti-gun leftists and announced they would no longer offer discounts to members of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
According to Dallas News:
Three major car rental companies and a bank have ended discounts and deals for National Rifle Association members a week after the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental, all under the parent company Enterprise Holdings, have ceased discounts for NRA members.
The brands replyied to tweets Thursday stating that the discount would end effective March 26.
Moreover, the report said, the Nebraska-based First National Bank of Omaha, the nation’s largest privately owned bank holding company, will stop producing credit cards for the NRA.
“Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA,” the company said on Twitter. “As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card.”
Enterprise said on Twitter:
Thank you for contacting us! All three of our brands have ended the discount for NRA members. This change will be effective March 26. Thank you again for reaching out. Kind regards, Michael

According to 100 Percent Fed Up, the effort seems to be led by the far-left Think Progress:
A radical leftist news site called ThinkProgress, has published a list of companies they’re asking their readers to boycott. One of the companies on the boycott list is Enterprise Holdings, who not only caved to the left, they are blowing up Twitter with multiple announcements that they will no longer be doing business with the NRA.
News of the move did not sit well with gun owners:
5 million NRA members-
And tens of millions of gun owners who may not take kindly to corporate shaming of those who defend a Constitutional right https://t.co/iWhqXy5xDA

I travel fairly often. Until you apologize for unfairly targeting the NRA and retract this ridiculous capitulation to intimidation and extortion tactics by political operatives, I will NEVER rent a car from your company again. #BoycottEnterprise

Dear Enterprise, expect #BoycottEnterprise to be trending in the near future. You just lost my business for life.

You guys are making a political statement at the wrong time in history. I have ALWAYS used Enterprise, but will no longer do business with ANY company that makes anti-USA political statements. I will no longer use your service. Promise. #BoycottEnterprise

Returning my current enterprise rental after seeing this. You had my business for 30 days. I’ll be ending it 22 days early.

Well, I’ve been less and less impressed with your company in recent months, but this is the final justification I needed to finally quit using Enterprise.
