USA: list of companies that have cut ties with NRA following mass shooting in Florida

"A List of the Companies Cutting Ties With the N.R.A.", 24 February 2018

Eight days after a gunman with an AR-15 rifle killed 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla., a major bank cut ties with the National Rifle Association. The bank, the First National Bank of Omaha, was among the first businesses of at least a dozen to scrap special rates or discounts to the five million people the N.R.A. says it has as members... Supporters and detractors of the N.R.A. have butted heads over the issue on social media, calling on partner companies to either stay put or step away.In a statement on Saturday, the N.R.A. said the companies, “in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice,” were trying to punish its law-abiding members who had nothing to do with the Parkland shooting.The statement added: “In time, these brands will be replaced by others who recognize that patriotism and determined commitment to Constitutional freedoms are characteristics of a marketplace they very much want to serve.”...[Companies include] First National Bank of Omaha...Delta Airlines...United Airlines...Allied Van Lines and North American Van Lines...Sirva...Avis Budget Group...Hertz...Alamo...Enterprise...National...Starkey Hearing Technologies...MetLife...Chubb...Truecar...Simplisafe...Symantec.
