18 and Counting: United Just Severed Ties With the NRA

 
 

NRA Becomes Toxic

Add United Airlines to the list of companies that are severing partnerships with the NRA. Earlier Saturday morning Delta Airlines also cut ties to the gun group.

The NRA is facing a massive backlash unlike ever before, after 17 people were shot to death last week in a tragic high school massacre. Student survivors and activists and celebrities and many other Americans have been urging companies that partner with the NRA to stop their support of the gun lobby.

ThinkProgress has been one of the organizations leading the charge by identifying companies that have developed partnerships with the gun lobby. A story it published Tuesday has led to the now 18 companies, including United and Delta, who are finding the NRA is toxic.
