Earlier today, we reported about First National Bank of Omaha‘s decision to end their relationship with the NRA after they were bullied by the left who used the Parkland Florida high school massacre that left 17 dead to push their gun grabbing agenda. A radical leftist news site called ThinkProgress, has published a list of companies they’re asking their readers to boycott. One of the companies on the boycott list is Enterprise Holdings, who not only caved to the left, they are blowing up Twitter with multiple announcements that they will no longer be doing business with the NRA.
Judd Legum of the radical leftist “news” site Think Progress appears to be the person leading the charge to encourage the left to boycott any businesses who work with the NRA. Here’s Legum bragging about how First National Bank and Enterprise Rental caved to threats from the left to boycott them:
@nationalcares, I'm an Executive Elite member and a life long gun owner. I will never be a member of the @NRA. They do not represent the values of the vast majority of America. Please reconsider your support of the NRA or I will have to consider other car rental options.

Here’s how Enterprise responded:
Thank you for contacting us, Mr. Fillmore! We have ended the discount for NRA members. This change will be effective March 26. Thank you again for reaching out.

- Enterprise Holdings, one of the world’s largest rental-car companies, is ending a key partnership with the National Rifle Association.
- The conglomerate, which operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent a Car, and National Car Rental, said it ended a discount program available to NRA members, effective March 26.
- That follows a move by First National Bank earlier Thursday to end a credit-card promotion with the gun-advocacy group.
- The developments come more than a week after a deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, and amid escalating demands for greater accountability from lawmakers and businesses after the massacre.
The rental-car giant, Enterprise Holdings, said it would end a discount promotion that was available to members of the National Rifle Association.
A company spokesperson told Business Insider in an email on Thursday: “We ended the discount program, effective March 26.”
The spokesperson did not immediately respond to follow-up questions about why Enterprise ended the program. Avis Budget Group and Hertz— two rivals of Enterprise — still offered NRA discounts as of Thursday night, and did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for an interview. – Business Insider
Not everyone on Twitter was happy with Enterprise’s decision to end their relationship with the NRA.
Buck Sexton hit the nail on the head, when he reminded Enterprise the the NRA has 5 million members and that there are tens of millions of gun owners who many not take kindly to their corporat shaming of those who defend a Constitutional right.
5 million NRA members-
And tens of millions of gun owners who may not take kindly to corporate shaming of those who defend a Constitutional right https://t.co/iWhqXy5xDA
