Firms Targeted By NRA Boycott Fold To Pressure

Seeing the Parkland school shooting as their opportunity to strike a blow against the premier 2nd amendment advocacy group in the country, The National Rifle Association, a number of activists have taken to social media calling on firms with a marketing agreement with the non-profit to drop their association. A number of firms have buckled to the pressure including the Lifelock Inc.’s owner Symantac, Hertz, Avis, moving companies Allied and North American and insurer MetLife. More

  1. I don’t like this at all, but as publicly traded companies they’re vulnerable to shareholder lawsuits if they don’t act in a way that maximizes shareholder value. If they thumbed their corporate noses at the boycotters (as I’d prefer them to do), they would likely find themselves with expensive legal bills defending themselves. The situation suxxx.

  2. People need to start emailing these people and telling them that they will be boycotted in turn.

  3. SimpliSafe has cut ties and LifeLock which I find ironic since they companies that want you to be safe. They should all have taken a lesson from Chick-Fil-A–stand by what you believe in and people will be there to support you–OR look at Target.

  4. I renewed my NRA membership yesterday.
    Plus I told Enterprise, the only company on the list that I patronize, that I have terminated our relationship.
    I rented from them just this week.

    Caving to the anti gun bullies only empowers them.

  5. I re-upped my NRA membership to the max 5 years. Never used the discounts anyway. I’ve always found careful shopping gets me better prices than a 5% discount off the max ticket.

    Go back and upgrade to EZ Pay life. $25/quarter for a few years. That is about $7.00/month.

    I’m a Benefactor member, and donate to NRA & Gun Owners of America where I am also a life member. GOA minimum payment is $50/quarter on their EZ Pay life membership. That is only $12.50/month for a few years

  7. This hysteria will die down.

    Who decides the definition of mental illness? Depends on which party is running the show.

  8. I would LOVE to hear that NRA had its largest enrollment ever over the next month in response to the bullies.

    C’mon everybody. Just enroll for just a year and smack the bad guys in the mouth.

    I am so sick of their tactics, so we need to step up.

  9. Article says that the boycotts will be successful since there is only 5 million NRA members and 300 million of them.

    Well they sound awfully dumb cause not all gun owners are NRA members. I think boycotters are out numbered myself. We just need to organize and do our own boycotting.

  10. So one of the things in this country that kills more people is CARS. Now, we have Enterprise, Alamo, National, Avis, Hertz, and Budget all caving to the Lefties. Thankfully, I have no need to rent a car but who is left?

  11. Shame really, now the theater won’t accept my NRA visa card to purchase tickets for Hollywood’s current bloodbath blockbuster. ….

  12. I turned off my Symantec (Norton 360) auto renewal and told them I won’t be renewing when the subscription is up because of their stance against the NRA which had nothing to do with Florida. I’m amazed when a company folds like this under what I would presume to be minimal actual people willing to follow through on threats. Didn’t LifeLock make a big thing about cancelling their sponsorship of Rush Limbaugh’s show on to come crawing back and having Rush tell them no thanks already have new sponsors.

  13. Go for it chuckleheads, I still won’t own a Smith and Wesson after they jumped into Billy Jeff’s pocket for “commonsense gun laws” in the 90’s. Think how long I can hold a grudge against, let’s say, a fricken car rental place?

  14. just signed up for Life Lock, now I need to see if I can back-out and get my $ back. And yes, i believe they still sponsor Rush. At least as of Friday.

  15. When I raised chocolate Labradors I used to give an NRA membership with every pup, or $25 off if you were already a member. In other words, my pups all went to NRA homes.

  16. Same for Best Western, I understand. I travel a lot and they’ve always been my hotel of choice. No more. I canceled a reservation for next week and told them exactly why. I feel sorry for the franchise owners– they may not agree personally, but have to uphold the directive from corporate.

  17. @Tony R; a little embarrassed to admit to only listening to Rush sporadically lately but I recall a few years ago that after they dropped him he had a pretty good laugh when they came crawling back and he told him the slots were full. I’ll have to listen through a whole segment. Sure would be fun if he dropped them over this.

  18. So if we get together a list of everyone else they offer discounts to and find a bunch a leftwing groups then they’ll drop them in a heartbeat after we send some tweets to them?

    Doubtful.

  19. I just turned off auto-renewal for Norton. Will write them a letter – the mailed kind – when I can gather my thoughts for the most effective punch.

    Their service makes sure computers are currently protected from “known threats”, AKA the virtual kind, which is a bit important. But being actively opposed to supporting the real-life Constitutionally protected kind, not so much. Way to go, you mewling quims.

  20. I’ve been an NRA life member for a very long time and never once took advantage of an NRA credit card, or other promotional benefit.

    Now, however, I know a handful of companies to avoid and, soon, I expect there will be a lot of new ones signing up with NRA benefits. I’ll pay close attention to the new ones and support those.

    It will be lemonade for the NRA. …..Lady in Red

  21. scr_north: You would have thought Life Lock would have learned their lesson then.

    Funny, most of the anti-2A people who put on the pressure probably don’t patronize most of those businesses anyway. Pro 2A people are the kind that probably would. Why do business people cave in to people who, to a large extent, live in their mother’s basements?

  22. This won’t hurt the NRA at all.

    Soros-controlled ThinkProgress is the instigator behind this AstroTurf online-bot push. Coercing corporate boards with fake “outrage” campaigns is their specialty.

    The Right could also play that game, but we don’t. Our boycotts are genuine.
