Largest Private US Bank Just Cut Ties With The NRA: Report


Largest Private US Bank Just Cut Ties With The NRA: Report

The First National Bank of Omaha announced on Thursday that it’s withdrawing its National Rifle Association-branded Visa credit card after receiving a huge number of complaints from customers, according to The New York Times.

“Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the N.R.A.,” bank spokesman Kevin C. Langin told The Times. “As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the N.R.A. Visa Card.”

Langin did not tell The Times what would happen to cardholders who possess the NRA card or when the contract expires.

The decision to cut ties with the NRA came after many of the bank’s customers took to social media threatening to leave the bank if it continued its ties with the firearms trade group.

Visa said in a statement that it had no sort of relationship with the NRA.

“Visa co-branded cards do not represent an endorsement by Visa of that cause or organization,” the company said. “We strive to make our payment services available to all people in all places, for uses consistent with local, national, and international laws.”
