UPDATED: An anti-NRA movement is calling for the boycott of these 13 companies

  • A mass shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school has spurred a growing number of calls for companies to cut ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA).
  • A number of retailers still offer perks to NRA members.
  • These discounts help retain NRA members, according to Boycott NRA Partners.

On February 14, gunman Nikolas Cruz allegedly killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The shooting swiftly reinvigorated a national debate on gun control, with the teenage survivors leading the charge on demands for reform.

Some of the backlash has centered on the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization that promotes gun rights in the United States. As multiple news outlets have noted, the NRA has become a strong political force, due largely to its political donations and millions of members.

One big way that the NRA retains its members is through discounts on everything from car insurance to hotel rooms. Dozens of American companies have partnered with the NRA to offer special perks to members. On the NRA membership benefits page, it stresses the “access to hundreds of dollars in savings” as a reason to join the organization.

As of this writing, the hashtag #BoycottNRA has garnered more than 2.1 million impressions.

Several companieshave decided to stop offering discounts to NRA members after the Florida shooting. They include Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National, Alamo, Hertz, and Avis Budget Group.

An activist group, which simply calls itself “Boycott NRA Partners,” has created a Google Doc that lists retailers that haven’t cut ties with the NRA. Below are the ones that Business Insider could verify:

In a statement to Business Insider, FedEx confirmed that it will continue its NRA rewards program.

“FedEx opposes assault rifles being in the hands of civilians,” the company said. “While we strongly support the constitutional right of U.S. citizens to own firearms subject to appropriate background checks, FedEx views assault rifles and large capacity magazines as an inherent potential danger to schools, workplaces, and communities when such weapons are misused.”

Hotel Planner told Bloomberg that it will continue its NRA rewards program.

“Our company provides discounted rooms to several large associations, including the NRA,” said Tim Hentschel, cofounder of Hotel Planner. “These associations greatly benefit our customers by buying discounted rooms from groups that might otherwise be charged a penalty by hotels for not using all of the rooms in their block.”
