Much like many rental car companies, airlines are now ending any discounts associated with National Rifle Association membership. In a tweet today, United Airlines announced that their partnership with the NRA will be ending.

In addition to United, Delta also announced that they would be dropping any associations with the NRA and rates to their meetings will no longer be discounted.

The moves come on the heels of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting last week in Florida, where 17 people died at the hands of a former student armed with a semi-automatic rifle. The shooting has since mobilized many young people, including the school’s own students, in a new and very public push for increased gun control and a great deal of added pressure on the NRA.

As of now, we have not heard of any more major airlines that have severed ties with the NRA but we will update this post if we find anything more.

This will be an unpopular opinion, but there will come a day when people regret demonizing the NRA and driving them to oblivion. It is vital for the long-term survival of the United States of America that a significant percentage of our citizens are proficient in the use of firearms. I just do not understand why people can’t see that, it is clear as day if you study history.
