NRA Goes On Deranged Rant After Being Dumped By a Major Sports Company Without Warning: ‘Not Fair’
Another major retailer has cut ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA), and they are not handling the rejection well.
The pro-gun lobbying group lashed out at outdoor sports company YETI after the retailer became the latest business to part of a wave of companies ending business deals with the pro-gun group following the Parkland, Fla., school shooting.
In response, the NRA sent an email to its members on Saturday afternoon, blasting the “unfair” company for not being “sportsmanlike,” News4Jax reported Sunday.
Yeti pulled out of its partnership as an NRA vendor without prior notice and “refused to say why,” the email reads.
“It’s unfair. That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed. They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities,” the email reportedly says. “These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs.”
Hundreds of professional investors and faith groups have been demanding companies linked to the gun industry take action to prevent gun violence by severing ties with the NRA.
Several companies such as Enterprise, Hertz, Alamo, MetLife, Delta Airlines, United Airlines and the First National Bank of Omaha, Bank of America, and Citibank ended deals with the group.
