Cowards Cut and Run Stand and Fight
NRA Statement on Corporate Partnerships

FAIRFAX, VA – 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.

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.

National Rifle Association

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Be sure to follow the NRA on Facebook at NRA on Facebook and Twitter @NRA.

Today everyone is up in arms against the corporations that have attacked the NRA, or is it they feel attacked. I understand the uproar now, but what will we have in 3 months. The bandwagon will have gone home and people will forget this ‘anger’. We as responsible American citizens need to stay the course. We need to hold with our indignation and continue to suppress our support of these “corporations” who are grabbing a little free publicity. They know there will be a groundswell of protest, but it won’t last for long. IF you are truly angered, offended or… Read more »

I called First National Bank of Omaha and cancelled my NRA Visa effective immediately. The customer service rep I spoke with asked me why I was cancelling and I told her that it was because the bank’s board/president were a bunch of cowards and I no longer wanted to do business with any company that would cut and run at the first sign of political pressure, probably from persons that did not have an account with them. She said that she would pass that along to the responsible parties. Hope she does. Good riddance First National Bank of Omaha! Phil… Read more »

As I stated before,not just the NRA,the millions of other gun owners they keep for getting about.Every gun owner is not a member of NRA.Be nice if that was the case.I personally don’t agree with everything they have done,but if not for them or a few other groups,the democrats would have done away with the 2nd amendment.All gun owners should put the screws to these companies.Need to show the power we have.We all may not agree with each other at times,but we all are fighting for the same cause,we just have to show it

It looks like every major car rental company is listed along with others. This sort of campaign is being used against target for their pro-men-in women’s restroom stand. It is affecting their bottom line but not enough to change their stand. American patriots need to set their minds like steel and walk away and be prepared for the consequences.

I just finished calling each of these phone numbers, and telling each that if they are severing business ties with the NRA, then I am severing business ties with them. Oh, and United Airlines correct number is 1(800)864-8331.

I no longer watch the NFL because of their shameful acts during the National Anthem. Yes, these corporations have the right to discontinue their discounts to NRA members, and i have the same right to discontinue my support for their products. Post the List!

I have been a member of the NRA off & on since 1955 and do not always support their stances when it comes to firearms policy or support for a particular politician or even some of the folks that they promote for their Board of Directors but, overall, I think they have done a decent job in working to protect the single issue that they stand for – the Second Amendment!
Remember that if the Second Amendment falls, the Constitution is nothing more than a scrap of paper walked on by tyrants!

Thursday, February 22 The First National Bank of Omaha said it will stop issuing an NRA-branded Visa card. A bank spokesperson said “customer feedback” prompted a review of its partnership with the NRA, and it chose not to renew its current contract. Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent a Car and National Car Rental, which are all owned by Enterprise Holdings, announced the brands would stop offering NRA membership discounts on March 26. Friday, February 23 Symantec (SYMC), which makes the Norton anti-virus software and owns the identity theft protection company LifeLock, announced it “has stopped its discount program” with the NRA.… Read more »

It’s OK, those companies aren’t worth getting a discount from. You should see the cyber security related issues with each of those companies. There is always Zip Car, MalwareBytes, Hilton, JetBlue, Alaska (Virgin) Airlines.
