Clear Thinking on NRA Boycott

Dana Mathewson

From Friend Eddie. Clear thinking in a world where it seems to be in short supply.

From the post:

"Both Delta and United airlines announced Saturday that they were withdrawing from agreements to provide discounted travel to members of the National Rifle Association attending the group’s annual meeting. That followed similar action by other companies to end partnerships and discount programs with the pro-gun group, including First National Bank of Omaha—which issues the NRA Visa Card; MetLife; Chubb insurance; Hertz, Avis, Budget, Alamo, Enterprise and National car rental; and a number of other firms, including Symantec, Simplisafe, TrueCar and Starkey Hearing. Also yesterday, investment giant Blackstone sent an email to about a dozen hedge funds in which Blackstone has an interest, asking for information about "any ownership or lending” of or to "gun manufacturers or gin sellers.”

There is risk in these corporate actions. The NRA has called them "a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”

End excerpt.

Read the whole e-mail blast.
