Get Rid of the NRA by Voting Out Republican Lawmakers — De Blasio

Get Rid of the NRA by Voting Out Republican Lawmakers — De Blasio

But the NRA is a well-funded membership operation devoted to a single cause - guns - and unlikely to be moved by the actions of companies with which it has such loose and peripheral ties. "They understand that we don't want terrorists or people with mental health challenges getting guns". Trump and Florida Gov. Rick Scott declined to attend. And they're discussing ideas for keeping guns away from those who have shown they may be a danger to themselves or others. Democrats, he said, "hate individual freedom".

"We must immediately harden our schools", he said. The FBI has said it failed to act on the tip.

GONYEA: And with that, she set the tone for what would follow.

The two hotel chains were previously targeted in a boycott campaign following the 2012 Newtown, Connecticut school shooting.

The US Constitution's Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to bear arms.

"The elites don't care not one whit about America's school system and school children", LaPierre told a friendly audience of young conservatives outside Washington. Some groups in the state are already considering other financial institutions for their banking needs. In 2000, LaPierre said President Bill Clinton wanted Americans to be killed by guns, to build support for gun control laws.

Earlier on Thursday, First National Bank said it would not renew a contract with the NRA in which it issued an NRA-branded Visa card, Reuters reported.

The media "love mass shootings" because of the ratings, Ms Loesch said.

NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch also addressed conservatives at CPAC. You guys love it. ...

The change comes due to pressure by left-wing extremists hoping to hurt the National Rifle Association, a massively popular firearm rights and education organization. However, during the same exchange, Rubio refused to say he would renounce NRA donations.

Activists have also called on public pension funds to divest from gun maker stocks, which were broadly lower on Friday.

Today, Republicans are now more than twice as likely to own guns than Democrats. He added that he's also reconsidering his support for large-capacity magazines.

"Work together, come over your politics and get something done", said 17-year-old David Hogg, a senior at the school, looking straight into the camera. LaPierre questioned why more armed protection was afforded to everything from banks and jewelry stores to movie stars, professional sports games and politicians.

Convincing Republican members of Congress, most of whom receive significant financial and political support from the NRA, to reform the US's gun laws will be challenging.

The nation's largest privately owned bank holding company and a major car rental chain said Thursday they will stop promotions aimed at National Rifle Association members. 'I'm not even allowed to use that word, but I completely agree and I'm here to stand with her'.

Incumbents who face tough primary battles tend to retreat to their respective sides rather than engage in compromise.

The announcement came after the progressive news website ThinkProgress listed the bank as a company that supports the NRA.

Best Western and Wyndham Hotels ended their relationships with the NRA - though, apparently not in direct response to the Parkland, Florida shooting. Current federal law allows gun buyers to purchase a rifle or shotgun at the age or 18, while the age requirement for a handgun is 21. Shares in American Outdoor Brands rose 2.8 percent to $10.34 and Sturm Ruger & Co. was up 5 percent to $49.55 halfway through Thursday's training session on the NYSE.
