Florida shooting: NRA-linked firms hit by consumer boycott
A number of US companies have cut ties with the National Rifle Association as consumers urge a boycott of firms linked to the politically powerful gun lobby. The firms included car rental giant Enterprise Holdings, which had offered discounts for NRA members. The moves follow NRA leader Wayne LaPierre's speech defending gun rights. Enterprise announced the move on Twitter in response to tweets from consumers targeting the company using the hashtag #BoycottNRA. The company, which owns the rental car brands Alamo, Enterprise and National, said the discounts offered to NRA members would end on 26 March. Activists are urging action against additional companies with ties to the organisation, including FedEx and Vista Outdoor, which owns gun-related companies in addition to brands such as outdoor equipment firm CamelBak.
