    Lots of companies are withdrawing their affiliation with the NRA after the school shooting in Florida. Your take???

    I think that there has been a change in public opinion and something is going to happen. I just wouldn't attempt a guess as to what it is.

    Somehow the anti-gun crowd,politicians and the media like to portray the NRA as some faceless mega corporation that is the purveyor of gun crimes. Never is there any mention that it is really over 5 million law abiding Americans that DONATE their hard earned money to a group that fights for their 2nd Amendment Rights. The NRA doesn’t pull the trigger in ANY gun crime as they would have everyone believe.

    flatlander_ Really? Show me. .

    If they are withdrawing their affiliation then they obviously weren't much in line with the NRA to begin with.

    I'm not a member of the NRA but I'm thinking it's about time to become one.

    Sounds like they could use some more of that evil capitalistic money to throw at the gun grabbers to help keep them at bay a bit longer.

    I may not have paid any attention what companies were supporting the NRA but I sure wont support a business that have pulled their support over this.

    See post #3 and there will be more coming I'm sure.

    I've already sent Enterprise Car Rental an email telling them they will no longer get my business.

    emails differ from one store to another. check their website and scroll to the bottom and click on "Contact Us". That should get you started.

    What’s the other companies ?
    I belong to the NRA agree with everything no. But the NRA has protected what we have now and do believe it f it was not around we may be England or Australia.

    A good comeback line to the people bashing the NRA is to tell them NRA members are not mass murders with mental illnesses.

    It never ends well for companies when they take knee jerk political reactions where their business is concerned. They were in a loose loose situation & they would have taken a short term financial hie no matter which stance they took

    The media is loving this. Another big story they have created. The millennials and youngsters are falling for it.
    After the latest news on the TV, my wife said how much do you want to give the NRA? So I guess we'll be sending in a contribution. We're both members.

    This is a risky time for gun rights. We have a president who shifts positions like the sand. The NRA is allowing, if not encouraging, the president, ATF, and others to push through gun control legs instead of stomping them out.

    The NRA is bleeding members because of this. Organizations like Gun Owners of America are standing up as they should for the 2A and picking up some of those NRA members, but they are MUCH smaller to start with.

    The gun community is divided. It’s the NRAs fault.

    you got a link for that?..interesting if true because others are said to be giving the NRA to strengthen the wall
