The February 14th shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida has ignited the debate about gun control. The NRA has been frequently highlighted in this discussion, with many calling out pro-NRA politicians’ lack of action. And today, February 23rd, several formerly pro-NRA companies cut ties with the organization.
Membership in the NRA comes with a variety of financial perks, including discounts on everything from travel to wine clubs. But as the hashtag #BoycottNRA has begun trending on Twitter, companies have been scrambling to separate themselves from the organization. On February 22nd, Enterprise and First National Bank of Omaha were among the first to revoke their support. Symantec, the parent company of Norton and LifeLock, tweeted on February 23rd that it would no longer offer discounts to NRA members. And the home security company SimpliSafe told ThinkProgress that it would no longer offer two free months to NRA members. Insurance company MetLife also announced its decision to pull support of the NRA on February 23rd.
But even though many companies are revoking their support for this organization, there are still many who offer benefits to members. Here are some pro-NRA companies you can boycott to send a message.
Car rental companies
Car rental companies Hertz, Avis, and Budget are among those that haven’t renounced their support of the NRA.
Hotel booking services
The hotel booking service HotelPlanner.com told Bloomberg that it would not stop supporting the pro-gun organization.
Those who belong to the NRA Business Alliance can receive up to a 26 percent discount on shipping with FedEx, according to the company’s website.
Allied Movers and the van rental company North American Van Lines both offer benefits if you belong to the pro-gun organization.
Some health companies offer special plans or discounts to NRA members. The insurance company eHealth offers a plan exclusively for members. And the discount prescription program Paramount Rx offers discount cards to those in the organization.
Apple, Amazon, AT&T, Google, and Roku all provide access to NRATV. On February 23rd, the activist group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America wrote to these companies demanding that they remove NRATV from their listings.
The NRA has a powerful influence over the United States, and if we want to pass meaningful gun control laws, this needs to end. Enough is enough: We need to stop gun violence.
