Several US companies interrupt their business relationships with the National Weapons Association (NRA).
Their decision was made by the fact that last week, 17 people were shot dead in a school in Parkland, Florida, by a firefighter rampant that caused massive indignation nationwide, yet the NRA is opposed to any kind of tightening of arms buying and holding.
One of the biggest US banks, the Omaha-based First National Bank, and the largest car rental company, American Enterprise, announced on Thursday evening in Twitter a message to review its business relations with the federation.
“Our customers’ feedback prompted us to look at our relationships with the NRA mark,” the bank wrote, adding that he did not issue a Visa card on the NRA.
First National is one of the 15 largest US banks. Enterprise Holdings, which run Enterprise, Alamo, and National Rentals, have now, with immediate effect, terminated the benefits to NRA members so far.
On Friday, more companies announced that they would be interrupted or lower their relationship with the Armed Forces at a lower level. For example, Hertz car hire. The Chubb Insurance Company has stated that it does not provide collateral with gun owners and has likewise terminated its discount program for NRA members by MetLife. Symantec, which compiles computer software, has broken all business relationships with the association.
The Wyndham and Best Western hotel networks have reported on their Twitter page that they are not giving discounts to NRA members and have no business relationship with the alliance.
The NRA has not formally reacted to the decisions of these companies.
