Multiple Businesses Plan To End Deals With The National Rifle Association

It appears multiple large businesses have laid out plans to end deals with the National Rifle Association (NRA) as a result of backlash from both sides of the gun control debate. Twitter is awash with tweets attacking companies that have worked out special deals with the NRA, many of them with the hashtag #BoycottNRA.

The first to announce plans to sever business ties with the NRA is the largest privately held US bank, First National Bank of Omaha. First National Bank stated on Twitter that they would not be renewing the contract to issue the NRA branded credit cards. If the NRA can’t find a new bank issue the card, the NRA Visa card could be coming to an end.

While it isn’t clear precisely how much revenue this is going to cost the NRA, First National Bank of Omaha brought in $714 million in revenue from credit card interest alone based on their 2017 income statement.

Previously, First National Bank was the issuer of the official NRA credit card that offered a $40 bonus after the initial purchase is made to offset the cost of a yearly NRA membership but now has removed the signup page from their website. (Click here for a cached version of the page)

First National Bank did state in the Twitter post the decision came as a result of “customer feedback” but did not release a date when the contract with NRA will come to an end. First National Bank of Omaha did not release any information beyond their Twitter statement. They also did not return requests for comment at the time that this article’s publication.

RECOIL also reached out to the NRA for comment, but they did not return the request for comment.

ENTERPRISE RENT-A-CAR, ALAMO RENTAL CAR, AND NATIONAL CAR RENTAL

It appears that Enterprise Rent-A-Car has also decided to no longer offer a discount on rental rates across their three brands.

As of March 26th, Enterprise, Alamo, and National Car Rental will no longer honor NRA member discounts.

RECOIL also reached out to all three rental companies but did not receive a response.

There are still several other companies under immense pressure from social media users to cut ties with the NRA in the wake of the shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Even though the requests for comment were sent to all involved companies rather late, we will update this post if the companies respond.
