Georgia Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle isn’t letting the fight against the NRA go without a few blows being sent back.
Delta Airlines recently cut their ties with the NRA after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. Now, Cagle is prepared to terminate all tax benefits Delta receives from the state, but will refrain if the airline reverses their decision.
Cagle announced this decision on Twitter, in response to the airlines public announcement on the same social media platform.
This could be a major blow to the airline since their headquarters are based in Atlanta.
Cagle tweeted: “I will kill any tax legislation that benefits Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.”

“I’m tired of conservatives being kicked around on our values and it’s time that we stand up and fight and show corporations that conservative values are important,” Cagle told Channel 2.
WSB-TV reported that his comment comes as “Delta appeared close to convincing lawmakers to restore a lucrative sales tax exemption on jet fuel.”
Delta’s claim is that the decision to cut ties with the NRA “merely confirmed its neutral status” on firearms. Lame excuse for caving to the gun-controllers, Delta.
