NRA Blasts Cowardly Companies for Caving Under Pressure From the Left

Several high-profile companies have dropped their affiliations with the National Rifle Association over the last couple of weeks, caving to pressure from Hollywood celebrities, teenagers, and the rest of the left’s coalition against guns. Acting in such a way that would appear to blame the NRA for walking into a high school in Parkland, Fl and blowing young students away, the companies ran for the hills at the first sign of trouble. On Saturday, in an uncompromising statement, the NRA let those companies have it.

“Some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice,” said the NRA. “The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement.

“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,” the statement continued. “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.”

We have to admit, this is a pretty awesome way to confront this meaningless boycott head-on. When have you ever seen a company or an organization respond to liberal pressure like this? Hell, there’s only one man who responds like this to an onslaught of mainstream media BS, and he’s in the White House. It’s good to see that the NRA is led by folks who share Trump’s backbone. God knows it is just what’s needed in this climate of fear and lies.

The companies that have chosen to disassociate themselves with the NRA brand have ever right to do so, but they may wish they hadn’t. They may soon realize just why it is that the NRA is so powerful. Here’s a hint: It has nothing to do with the relatively paltry amount of money they funnel to Republicans and it has virtually zero to do with the gun industry. It has everything to do with the fact that their members are among the most politically-engaged Americans in the country and they vote with their wallets. Long after liberals have moved on to something else…long after the media has danced away to the next “Trump scandal”…NRA members will remember the companies that caved under leftist pressure.

And they will not soon be forgiven.

  1. What bothers me is that many of these companies refuse to support my boycott which I believe justified, and then without thinking about justification they support liberal based boycotts like this one.
    This shows that Big Businesses are as biased as the MEDIA…

    Big Business colluding with Big Government is just another form of Communism.

    • I agree with your distrust of Big Business. In the end, despite their rhetoric, they are just in it for themselves. This is as prevalent in capitalist societies as in any other form. As a matter of fact, it’s not just business, it’s all ruling classes in states run by any form of government. This is not really a democracy vs. communist issue; it’s a human corruption issue.

      • Agreed, AND WELL SAID.

        Typically the collusion that happens between Big Business and Big Government happens because Big Government has control over something that the business needs,

        Note that the Left says the reason Socialism and Communism haven’t succeeded is because of good old human corruption….

        I use the word communism not because it is a good fit, but because some still fear communism and nobody fears socialism anymore.

  2. Big Businesses certainly are controlled by the Left……

    From the 45 agenda items listed in “the Naked Communist”

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

  3. Fourth paragraph down – “It’s good to see that the NRA is led by folks who share Trump’s backbone.”

    WRONG – The good folks who belong to the NRA have always had backbones. They stand on principle. Trump is an anomaly who has come to the right positions at the right time to push Clinton’s coronation march to the White House into the ditch (where I hope it remains). Nevertheless, Donald Trump is somewhat of a loose cannon who needs to be closely monitored. He is not a saint come down from heaven to lead us all to the promised land.
    We all need to keep to our values and assess the actions of all politicians, on both sides and all sides in comparison with those values. If anything can be said about sharing backbone, it would be Trump sharing some of NRA members’ backbone, not the other way around.

  4. This whole mess has motivated me to join the NRA again. I will also no longer use United or any other that has treated the RNA that way. I’ll drive where I want to go first. They are not my big brother and my civil rights are too important to me.

    • THE WAY OUR COUNTRY IS LOOKING IT MAY BE ON THE VERGE OF BEING TAKEN OVER BY A HOSTILE COUNTRY- IF THIS HAPPENS AND WE NEED THE CITIZENRY TO DEFEND THIS NATION WE ARE GOING TO BE IN A REAL FIX. WE WILL NEED EVERY MAN AND WOMAN AND LEGAL AGE CHILD TO HELP SUPPORT ANY ACTIONS THAT WILL BE NECESSARY TO THWART AN ATTEMPT AT OVERTAKING OUR COUNTRY. ITS OK TO USE GUNS TO SUPPORT A MOVEMENT THIS COUNTRY IS SUPPORTING AND SHOULD ALSO BE OK FOR THE CITIZENS TO HAVE AND BEAR ARMS TO HELP DEFEND THIS COUNTRY IF A HOSTILE COUNTRY TRIES TO TAKE IT OVER. WHAT GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN AND IF THAT DOES OCCUR? THIS COUNTRY AND ITS CITIZENS NEED TO BE READY AND AVAILABLE FOR ITS DEFENSE OF OUR HOMELAND. WAKE YOU YOU DEMOCOMMIES AND THE WEIRDO’S THAT ADVOCATE A GUN FREE SOCIETY.
      CARS KILL MORE PEOPLE PER DAY THAN ANY GUN DOES- SO WHY ARE WE NOT BANNING CARS- TRUCKS AND MEXICO ILLEGALLY DRIVEN TOURS BUSES IN THIS COUNTRY THAT DOES NOT MEET THE DOT SPECIFICATION TO BE DRIVEN IN THIS COUNTRY. THE WRECKS IN TEXAS FROM MEXICO TOUR OR BUS COMPANY’S HAS BEEN FROM NO LICENSE DRIVERS AND FAULTY TIRES BEING RE-GROOVED AGAINST THE SAFETY STANDARDS OF THE DOT. BUT WE ARE NOT BANNING THEM BECAUSE THAT WOULD DO HARM TO THOSE POOR BABIES THE BUS COMPANY IS SMUGGLING IN TO THIS COUNTRY.

      • Yup , look at the country that over half owns us . Once they get into the Banking Industry it will be curtains for us .Just look at how many of their babies are born in the US every day and then go back home with the US citizen .Who is our real enemy Russia – Arabs – or the far East ????

    • I have a step brother named Frank with a wife named Nancy

  5. NRA member since 1976 I do not always agree with them on many decisions but I unconditionally support their 2nd. Amendment defense.

  6. The term “cowardly” is appropriate! These companies have given into knee jerk reaction to be politically correct, and as such is a direct insult to every NRA member, none of which has ever been involved in anything even close to mass shootings. Political correctness is a bane to liberty. I will not patronize any of these companies.

  7. With the tunnel-visioned NRA, their own extremist views are noble and patriotic and the responsible views of others on the Second Amendment are cowardly.

  8. A class action law suit by NRA and members for discrimination against those who believe in the second amendment would be justified against these socialist companys

  9. The NRA is using its Russian funding to tell once free Americans and their businesses what to do. We must get the Russian agents out of the White House to protect competition and liberty.

  10. THE GUN ISSUE TO ME IS REALLY STUPID- FIRST OF ALL THE GUN IS NOT OFF ITS ROCKER- IT THE SHOOTERS THAT ARE OFF THEIR ROCKERS. ITS LIKE SAYING – A GUY WAS EATING WHILE DRIVING AND HAD A WRECK AND THE SPOON GOT RAMMED DOWN HIS THROAT FROM THE COLLISION- SO THE IDIOTS ARE BANNING SPOONS!! ITS THE IDIOTS EATING IN THE CARS WITH SPOONS THAT SHOULD BE BANNED FROM DRIVING IN THE FIRST PLACE!! IT IS NOT THE SPOONS FAULT-LIKE ITS NOT THE GUNS FAULT! ITS THE IDIOTS ON BOTH SIDES OF THESE ISSUES USING THEM IN THE WRONG WAY. THIS IS JUST A WAY TO GET VOTES AND SUPPORT FOR THE DEMOCOMMIES THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THIS COUNTRY. WE ARE ON A PATH OF RECOVERY FROM THE LAST 8 YEARS OF OUR LAST ILLEGAL MUSLIM LOSER PRESIDENT.

    • You can blame Congress for the lack of proper treatment for those with Mental problems , just like congress would not act on banning Insurance for prior existing illness .Health care has stepped backwards as far as coverage .Some of the new Cancer drugs that are showing progress , insurance will not cover them unless you have exhausted all other treatments [ which might kill you] because the meds are close to $10,000.00 a pop . The insurance lobby owns congress instead of the other way around .

  11. it’s a total disgrace that the left has this control over wimps. Republicans must stand firm and we will – you can trust that

  12. I have all ready quit flying. I refuse to be treated like a piece of garbage by these Air Lines and their personal. They have made the seating such that it is crippling. They are deliberately forcing people to pay extra for more comfort. Even first class sucks.
    This crap with the NRA only solidifies my decision to do so. I hope the Air Lines that are pulling this excrement go bankrupt.

  13. I just cancelled my AMEX DELTA credit card as a boycott response to their caving. I lost airline miles but it is worth that little sacrifice. Seriously considering joining NRA.

  14. THE NRA AND THE PATRIOTS OF THIS COUNTRY WILL SAVE THE “BACON” FOR THE REST OF THE SISSY’S IN THIS COUNTRY IF A HOSTILE TAKEOVER IS ATTEMPTED. SO, FOR ALL YOUR WUSSIES WITH YOUR ARCHED EYEBROWS AND PRETTY SKIN THAT USE THE MEN’S BATHROOM- AND WE BORN WITH A MALE ORGAN- YOU NEED TO THINK TWICE ABUT KICKING THE NRA AND ANY AMERICAN PATRIOT IN THE SACK! OBVIOUSLY, WE WILL BE YOUR BEST FRIEND WHEN IT COMES TO OUR SHORES!! FOR ME I’LL TURN MY BACK AND PROTECT SOMEONE WHO WAS FOR THE 2ND AMENDMENT AND THE NRA AND OUR RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS!!!

  15. These hypocritical companies reveal their true ignorance in supporting the liberals who claim they are concerned for our children safety but at the same time these liberals will fight tooth and nail to have the right to kill the babies in the womb of their Mothers… Dear God this is one screwed up people….

  16. AARP is also anti -second amendment.

  17. These companies that have blasted the NRA should be ashamed for listening to the liberal goats! It is going to cost them a lot of business for siding with a bunch of shmucks !

  18. The liberal PC dialogue has made the sole issue about “guns in private hands”. The Second Article of the Bill of Rights is about the individual Right to self defense. “The Right to keep and bare arms SHALL not be infringed” guarantees even liberals have the Right to defend themselves, yet, their dialogue is, that should be removed because they don’t have the self control to use it wisely.

    Since liberal democrats can’t control THEMSELVES, they try to control everyone else, by projection. ie “I’m evil so you are evil also”.

    In all the incidents of mass shootings, NO NRA member did them. In each case, they were done by deranged liberal democrats.

    Draw your own conclusion. Mine would be, Registered Democrats and Liberals, should be barred from possession of deadly weapons, of any kind.

  19. “And they will not soon be forgiven” is an excellent statement! I have officially stopped doing business or patronizing any of the companies that caved under pressure from the left. i do not need them and I do not foresee a time or a reason that I would again do business with any of those companies. Business is business. I hope they did not miscalculate!

  20. EVEN IF YOU DO NOT OWN A GUN, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT WANT A GUN, EVEN IF YOU HATE GUNS,
    If you love America and you respect the freedom and free enterprise system we have. If you want to keep our constitution alive.
    You really “NEED” to join the N.R.A.
    Always remember this : The 2nd. amendment was put in to PROTECT the rest of the constitution. The Democrat Communist Party controls all of the media and they put in the people on the late night propaganda mongering talk shows to influence people into thinking their lies are true.
    The AR in the name of that gun is for ARMALITE RIFLE, it is “NOT” ASSAULT RIFLE like all of the late night talk show supposedly comedians keep saying over and over even when told they are wrong.
    Guns don’t kill people – People kill people and if they don’t have a gun they will make bombs ( Remember Boston?)
    Trucks, Cars, Knives, Or HOW ABOUT A ROCK LIKE CAIN KILLED HIS BROTHER ABLE WITH ??????
    Do your own research on the N.R.A. and look at the programs they sponsor like the “EDDIE EAGLE PROGRAM” and you will see that the N.R.A. is a true Freedom loving American organization and not the evil corrupt organization the Democrat Communists and late night show puppets they say it is..
    Join today if you want to keep your freedom and our American way of life.
    Also, I was once a Democrat because my Mom and Dad were democrats, It was the party of the working people, Not anymore, It is now the COMMUNIST Party of the People that do not like to or ever want to work.
    I switched to be Republican even though I do not agree with all they do, At least they care about the constitution and love our free enterprise system and try to keep Americans working and not sucking off of the taxpayers..
    I am also a disabled Veteran and love America.

  21. Craven cowardice is displayed when people or businesses, at the shrill sound of the media and strident clowns who vilify a person or organization, hide behind their “civic duty”. They drop their connections with whomever because they fear their image “will be tarnished”. They fail to realize that there is a far larger group who quietly go on with their life, but decide to address the companies’ image by placing their funds, interest and support elsewhere. Some will write in protest or voice their disgust through phone calls, e-mails and FB, Twitter, etc.

  22. We have been way too ptient way to long with the liberal dem bloodsucking liberal scum.
    We all know what the answer is, what is the delay?

  23. I will boycott every business that is joining this madness. Time to stand up for our constitutional rights.

  24. I expect that those businesses that are dropping the NRA will lose a bunch of money before it’s over.
