In the past day, some companies have started distancing themselves from the NRA after public pressure.
Following NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch‘s appearance, some companies have said they will discontinue programs with the NRA:
We value all our customers but have decided to end our discount program with the NRA.

We have notified the NRA that we are ending the NRA’s rental car discount program with Hertz.

Symantec has stopped its discount program with the National Rifle Association.

Thank you for contacting us! All three of our brands ended the discount for NRA members. This change will be effective March 26. Thank you again for reaching out. Kind regards, Michael

Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA. As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card.

Thanks for contacting us. We ended the program – effective March 26. https://t.co/BMqcoac4s2

A few other companies have made similar statements, and as of this posting, #BoycottNRA is one of the top trends on Twitter.
