A number of companies have deals with the NRA. These businesses such as insurance companies, banks, and car rental agencies that offered discounts to NRA members. Now they are re-evaluating that linkage.
The NRA is not happy.
In a statement Saturday night, the NRA called the corporations’ decisions “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”
“Let it be absolutely clear,” the statement continued. “The loss of a discount with 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.”
I’m pretty sure the individual freedoms we enjoy are not truly dependent on whether or not someone gets 5% off on renting a Toyota.
I don’t think it’s political or civic cowardice to look at a group and decide that the leadership, not necessarily the membership, is out of touch with the majority of the country and is not impressed with the vitriol that comes out of their mouths. It’s just common sense.
