Delta and United Airlines Drop Their NRA Connections, Several Other Companies Too — UPDATE the NRA Responds

After the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting calls for more gun control have taken over the media. Feeling pressure, several companies have severed their ties with the National Rifle Association.

Delta and United Airlines were just a couple of the companies that dropped their accounts with the gun lobbying group.

Announcing on twitter, Delta stated:“Delta is reaching out to the NRA to let them know we will be ending their contract for discounted rates through our group travel program. We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website.”

Where as United stated: “United is notifying the NRA that we will no longer offer a discounted rate to their annual meeting and we are asking that the NRA remove our information from their website.”

A host of other companies have also cut ties with the group amid heightened scrutiny following the mass shooting at a Florida high school last week.

Delta has more than 2,000 such contracts in place.​”

Several other companies have also dropped their accounts with the NRA. Here is what they are saying:

UPDATE:

The NRA released a statement after getting the news that these companies cut ties with them. Here is that they published:
