UPDATED: An anti-NRA movement is calling for the boycott of these 17 companies By – February 24, 2018
A mass shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school has spurred a growing number of calls for companies to cut ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA). A number of retailers still offer perks to NRA members. These discounts help retain NRA members, according to Boycott NRA Partners.
On February 14, gunman Nikolas Cruz allegedly killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The shooting swiftly reinvigorated a national debate on gun control, with the teenage survivors leading the charge on demands for reform.
Some of the backlash has centered on the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization that promotes gun rights in the United States. As multiple news outlets have noted , the NRA has become a strong political force, due largely to its political donations and millions of members.
One big way that the NRA retains its members is through discounts on everything from car insurance to hotel rooms. Dozens of American companies have partnered with the NRA to offer special perks to members. On the NRA membership benefits page, it stresses the “access to hundreds of dollars in savings” as a reason to join the organization.
As of this writing, the hashtag #BoycottNRA has garnered more than 2.1 million impressions.
Several companies have decided to stop offering discounts to NRA members after the Florida shooting. They include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National, Alamo, Hertz, and Avis Budget Group.
An activist group, which simply calls itself “Boycott NRA Partners,” has created a Google Doc that lists retailers that haven’t cut ties with the NRA. Below are the ones that Business Insider could verify: American Cellars Wine Club (Vinesse Wines) source
