Following the Parkland Shooting and the immense amount of pressure on the NRA that ensued, many of the NRA’s corporate sponsors have chosen to cut ties with the organization.
By and large, these were financially-oriented decisions as companies began to fear that an association with the NRA would lead to boycotts that would hurt their bottom line. However, what we’re now seeing is that these companies’ decision to cut ties with the NRA may backfire on them in a big way.
According to a study conducted by One America News, the overall favorability ratings of companies that have cut ties with the NRA have dropped, in some cases significantly. Companies that cater to a majority conservative base such as Yeti have felt the backlash most strongly and now expect their sales to see a significant drop due to boycotts from NRA supporters.
This result is a firm reminder of the fact that no matter how much hate and vitriol the NRA gets in the media or how loud the voices of the minority that opposes them are, the majority of Americans still strongly value their Second Amendment rights. Companies that cave to the pressure of the left on this issue do so at their own peril.
