Enterprise Rent-A-Car to end discounts for NRA members

Russell Knight | 23 February, 2018, 23:54

"The "valuable 5-star benefits" promised include ... savings on insurance, identity theft protection, hearing aids, auto rentals, moving vans, shipping, and even wine", she writes.

USA cybersecurity firm Symantec also took to Twitter on Friday to announce it would stop its discount program with the group.

The insurance company said it is ending its discount program offered to NRA members. "#NRABloodOnYourHands." The bank said "customer feedback" spurred it to review its relationship with the NRA.

As backlash to corporations that support the National Rifle Association (NRA) grows, another major rental auto company said Friday it will no longer be offering discounts to NRA members.

Company spokespeople would not elaborate on the announcements.

He said one reason is politicians fear being targeted by the powerful NRA lobby group and losing NRA members' votes.

On Tuesday, ThinkProgress, a liberal-leaning think tank, published a list of some two dozen "corporate partners" that offer incentives to NRA members.

Insurance giant Metlife cut discounts for members, while Chubb announced it would stop underwriting a controversial NRA-branded insurance policy for gun owners that covers legal costs in self-defence shootings.

Social media users have taken to Twitter in an effort to name and shame those companies and others for their NRA affiliation.

LAPIERRE: As usual, the opportunist wasted not one second to exploit tragedy for political gain.

Proponents of the NRA have also used the hashtag #BoycottNRA to express support for the group. In tweets as early as February 16, two days after the shooting, an official Twitter account for the company began telling people it "is no longer affiliated with the NRA".

LaPierre concluded his CPAC speech by repeating his delusional mantra that he introduced following the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012: "To stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun".

"We focus on engaging with the company and understanding how they are responding to society's expectations of them", BlackRock spokesperson Ed Sweeney told Reuters.

Meanwhile, some teachers in Florida were unsettled to learn earlier this week that the retirement funds to which they've been contributing invest in the gun company that produced the weapon used in the Parkland attack. "Adding more guns to schools may create an illusion of safety, but in reality it would make our classrooms less safe", said Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers union.

In his first public comments since the Parkland shooting that left 17 dead, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre accused gun control advocates within the Democratic Party of seeking to roll back the constitutional right to bear arms.

Some of those survivors confronted NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch at a CNN town hall on Wednesday.

"This is a bold move for First National of Omaha but also a risky one because passions burn so hot on both sides of the topic of guns", Matt Schulz, senior industry analyst at CreditCards.com tells MarketWatch's Mike Murphy in an email.

"March for Our Lives", a national rally, is planned in Washington, D.C. on March 24.
