Gun-control activists are organizing boycotts of companies with ties to the National Rifle Association — and they’re already producing results.
People on social media are calling for boycotts of companies that offer or have offered special deals to NRA members who, as part of their membership, receive discounts on things like car rentals and prescription drugs.
While companies such as FedEx still offer such discounts, other companies have cut ties.
The NRA, in a statement, said, “some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice. In time, these brands will be replaced.”
Here are all the brands that have cut ties with the gun-rights group after the recent boycotts as well as past efforts by gun-control activists.
“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,” the company tweeted.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent a Car, and National Car Rental
A representative did not respond to Business Insider’s follow-up questions about why Enterprise was ending the program, though the company has been flooded with boycott threats on social media. Avis Budget Group and Hertz, two rivals of Enterprise, still offered NRA discounts as of Friday morning.
“Best Western ended any association with the NRA in 2014,” a representative said in a statement to Business Insider.
Best Western has been targeted in past NRA boycott efforts.
In 2012, after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, the activist group Avaaz organized a boycott of Best Western and Wyndham Hotel Group, calling for them to cut ties with the NRA. At the time, both hotel chains were listed on the gun-rights group’s website as “friends of the NRA” and offered members discounts at hotels.

“We will be asking them to remove our information from their website. Our focus remains on bringing better hearing to people around the world in partnership with hearing professionals,” the company said.
