Given some of the loose gun laws in the United States and the politicians who are reluctant to change those laws, we might never see tough gun control. Some states have laws that allow police to take guns from certain people, but some huge loopholes ensure anyone who wants a gun can get one.
While the laws don’t change even in the wake of deadly shootings, some American companies are taking a stand. With the escalating mass shootings in America, some companies are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association after its response. Or, lack of response. These are the companies that are severing ties with the NRA in 2018.
1. First National Bank of Omaha
- When it cut ties with NRA: Feb. 22, 2018
This bank was the first of the big companies that are severing ties with the NRA. Citing ‘customer feedback’ in a Feb. 22 tweet, First National Bank of Omaha said it will no longer issue the NRA Visa card, which provided 5% cash back on certain purchases. Give FNBO props for being the first corporation taking a stand against mass shootings in America.
