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.

Allied Van Lines/North American Van Lines

“North American and Allied Van Lines no longer have an affiliate relationship with the NRA effective immediately, ” Tammy Monroe, a spokesperson for parent company SIRVA, told ThinkProgress. “We have asked them to remove our listing from their benefits site.”

Avis and Budget

Avis and Budget say they are discontinuing the discount offered to NRA members:

Best Western

The hotel chain announced that they have no association with the NRA:

Chubb Insurance

A spokesman for Chubb told Reuters the company will stop underwriting a National Rifle Association-branded insurance policy for gun owners.

Delta

Delta announced on Twitter that they will no longer offer discounted group travel rates for NRA members:

Enterprise Rent-a-Car

This company has the distinction of being the first to cave to demands of activists:

First National Bank of Omaha

The bank announced it is ending its NRA Visa program. "Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA. As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card," spokesperson Kevin Langin said in a statement Thursday.
