Here's the List of Companies That Have Cut Ties with the NRA
In the wake of the horrific mass shooting at a Florida school on February 14, anti-gun activists are pressuring companies to end their relationships with the National Rifle Association (NRA). An activist group called "Boycott NRA Partners" has created a Google Doc with a list of companies that are being targeted for boycott, and many have complied.
In a rush to appease the activists, a host of companies have conceded to the demands, apparently agreeing that law-abiding gun owners are somehow complicit in the massacre. They're implying, by disassociating with the NRA, that the group's five million members are all powder kegs lying in wait to conduct the next mass slaughter.
For law-abiding gun owners, this list, which continues to grow, can serve as a helpful guide to companies that no longer deserve the patronage of Second Amendment supporters. These companies are apparently so flush with cash that they don't need the money of NRA members, so shop and spend your money accordingly.
