People at one time were smart enough to not alienate the available fan/customer base but now today it seems to be the in thing, just look at the statements coming from business and celebrities now that would do better to not flap their traps.

Just saying.


Not sure I understand your point.

These businesses whether or not they ever supported the nra is irrelevant if they are going to come out publicly and state they are not supporting the nra than they made their stance clear.

I will not do business with the ones that don't support our amendments.


My point is did the NRA receive monies from these companies. It takes money for the NRA to exist. SO if they just say they are not giving discounts to members then they are not "hurting" the NRA per say.
As for not using companies that don't support our "amendments" hope you are going to become self sufficient and live off the grid. Because there are THOUSANDS of co that don't do that. Most liberal owned co, plus many foreign owned don't support the 2nd amendment . Just saying .... (lot of crap from over seas)

They may not have directly donated, but money saved by members will help keep members and donations.

Instead of speaking ill of these companies I sing their praise for coming forth with their opinions. We should encourage more companis to step forward to allow us the pleasure of making informed purchase decisions.

Most of the companies offered discounts to NRA members in return for the members doing business with them it was a win for both, still not sure who the NRA has ever shot. They are just mad the NRA is protecting the 2nd amendment is all it must be.

So you know what they can kiss!

The interesting thing is there has to be hundreds of thousands of democrats that support owning guns and are hunters etc.



The democrats have thrown away their old base of working class whites, who were pro-gun, in favor of anti-gun fanatics, minorities, LBGTQs, America haters, illegal immigrants, welfare recipients, food stamp recipients and socialists. The democrats are not the same party they used to be.

I believe the businesses listed were friendly at one time... They offered discounted rates, points, etc... to NRA members.

Apparently many companies are now backing out of that.

The list will need amending.

The NRA has always graded on a candidates voting record on 2A issues. Strictly 2A.

To find out if they are pro partial-birth abortion, you need to go to a pro-life organization.

No offense intended.

Yep, it falls to the electorate to research the candidates.

I saw a post on FB just now that said something about the NRA not allowing firearms at their convention.

Quick research obviously showed that, that was incorrect. What the actual case was that the NRA encouraged everyone to lawfully carry. This means in certain venues and locations attendees would not to be able to fully carry because of local laws or venue policy.


When will the NRA finally also boycott firearm hostile locations?

Oh...and there is also this.... It seems to be a bit hypocritical. Probably didn't have much authority as a candidate to do anything but as president I would think he would.

Heck....a convention of a few thousand well armed supporters seems to be the safest place on Earth.

On Friday, April 28, President Donald Trump will be addressing the crowd at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum. Because the President is speaking, the United States Secret Service will have tight security around Hall A3 of the Georgia World Congress Center, and attendees will be barred from bringing any weapons, including knives or firearms, into the venue. This is standard procedure, and again, has nothing at all to do with the NRA. This is a Secret Service policy, as it was last year when then-candidate Trump attended last year in Louisville and accepted the NRA’s enthusiastic endorsement.
