The companies will give in to the call to boycott which is being spread on social media. “There are only five million NRA members, and more than 300 million others. Businesses can choose with whom they want to do business’, is the subtle blackmail of the demonstrators, calling others to no longer for companies to choose to work with the NRA, and a list to distribute.
“Some companies have decided to enable our members to punish in a shameful display of political and social cowardice. These companies will over time be replaced’, appeared Saturday on the website of the gun lobby. ‘The loss of a discount, not a single NRA member will distract from our mission to the individual freedom to defend.’
