In an act of corporate terrorism, perhaps extortion, antis pressured several major corporations to cut ties (mostly offering of discounts) with NRA/NRA members. United & Delta Airline, Enterprise mostly auto rental Dick’s Sporting Goods and such. Fail. Turns out, 95% of members didn’t know about the corporate partnerships and discounts, and 99.9 don’t care. Much the same effect that Obama and the potential of Clinton had on firearms sales. What gun owners did know was that the 2A was being attacked.
NRA membership in the month following Parkland shooting i.e. when corporations cut ties, soared by 3-500,000 to somewhere over 5.5 million. SAF reported 1200% (yeah, percentage is always a cover for actual numbers, but still, 1200 is a lot) increase in 18-20 year-olds as antis and lawmakers suggested raising the age of buying a firearm.
