NRA Issues BADA$$ Statement in Response To Losing Corporate Partnerships

In a defiant statement released Saturday, the National Rifle Association slammed corporations for ending their partnerships with the gun-advocacy group. 

Washington Examiner reports:

The NRA slammed the move by Delta, United, Enterprise, BestWestern, Hertz, and several other companies as “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.” The group also suggested such entities would likely suffer a major blow to their business as a result.

“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,” read the statement.

“Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world,” the statement continued.

Delta and United airlines have both ended their partnerships with the NRA this weekend.

“United is notifying the NRA that we will no longer offer a discounted rate to their annual meeting and we are asking that the NRA remove our information from their website,” tweeted United Airlines.

“Delta is reaching out to the NRA to let them know we will be ending their contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website,” Delta tweeted

Below is a list of 15 brands that have now ended their relationship with the NRA.
