Gun debate has companies picking sides

Auto rental companies such as Enterprise, Alamo, Hertz, Avis Budget, and National also ended their contracts, and Sirva, which owns Allied and North American moving companies, has said they "no longer have an affiliate relationship with the NRA, effective immediately".

How many more lives are we going to lose because the members of the administration are in the pockets of the NRA?

The company also denied any donation or sponsorship with the NRA, adding that the gun lobby is only is one of hundreds of alliance and association participants.

Symantec: The maker of Norton anti-virus software and owner of the identity theft protection company LifeLock, announced it has "stopped its discount program" with the NRA.

United Airlines also announced its decision to stop offering discounts to NRA members on Saturday. But last Thursday, led by First National Bank of Omaha and Enterprise Holdings of St. Louis, companies began pulling NRA discounts.

"All we are saying is that guns are inherently unsafe and you recognize that whenever you use a firearm".

SimpliSafe: The maker of home security systems "discontinued our existing relationship with the NRA", CEO Chad Laurans said in a statement.

A decline of 63% was seen in the states where the conventions were being held, apparently due to large numbers of gun owners being at the events, as well as, in some cases, gun venues such as firing ranges or hunting grounds having closed while their staff attended the convention. Decisions by businesses and sports organizations not to operate in places that adopted laws discriminating against LGBT people clearly made a difference in IN and North Carolina.

"How well can they position themselves so that they're being viewed as honest and supportive of what is a national crisis and not walking away from the Second Amendment?" said Robert Passikoff, president of Brand Keys, a consumer research firm.
