#BANG! - #FedEx, #Norton, And #WyndhamHotels Just Dumped The #NRA As #Backlash Intensifies:
The National Rifle Association (NRA) is facing increasing backlash following the Florida school shooting, one of the deadliest in the country.
Adding to the growing list of businesses that have cut ties with the NRA this week, LifeLock, FedEx, Norton, and Wyndham Worldwide, the parent company of Ramada, Days Inn, Super 8 and other nationwide hotel brands, announced that they are also s...plitting from the massive pro-gun lobbying group.
Earlier this week, First National Bank announced that it would not renew an existing contract with the gun group, adding that the company will soon stop issuing NRA Visa Cards to members due to “customer feedback.”
Yesterday, Alamo, Enterprise and National Car Rental, which are all owned by Enterprise Holdings, also announced on social media that their discount programs would no longer include special privileges to NRA. The decision to drop the benefits comes amid a renewed groundswell of opposition to the NRA, with the Twitter feeds of each car company inundated with messages from users who urged the businesses to sever ties with the lobbying group.
The avalanche of responses came after ThinkProgress published an article that listed companies that help support the NRA, spawning the hashtag #BoycottNRA.
