Hertz cuts ties with NRA

Hertz cuts ties with NRA

The new and dynamic youth-led gun safety movement, #NeverAgain, has pushed the National Rifle Association's leadership onto the ropes.

NRA chief Wayne LaPierre hit back at what he called "the shameful politicisation of tragedy", fighting a rearguard defence against street protests and mounting demands to tighten America's permissive gun laws. "They want to make all of us less free". "When you have more security and you have more people carrying, that is deterrence in itself". "And God help us if we don't harden our schools and protect our kids".

On Friday, one of the survivors of the shooting, 17-year-old David Hogg, who has become a powerful voice in the push for stricter gun laws, joined the debate and urged FedEx to stop its relationship with the NRA.

Since the horrific massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, the leadership of the NRA has attacked everything from the "fake" media to the emerging student activists.

Both hotel chains have been targeted in past boycotts organized by gun control activists.

A partnership between the NRA and Hertz and advertised on the association's website has been removed. "Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you".

Loesch questioned why there was a nationally televised town hall after one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern American history but no similar event for "thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend".

"I don't believe that this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm", Loesch said during the forum Wednesday night. He also assailed the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to follow up on warnings about the school shooter. "The government has proven it can not keep you safe", she said. "I would avoid a business that is boycotting NRA".

Why The Trade Desk Inc.'s Stock Soared Friday
Currently Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ:TTD)'s shares owned by insiders are 1.4%, whereas shares owned by institutional owners are 0%. BidaskClub downgraded shares of Trade Desk from a "buy" rating to a "hold" rating in a report on Friday, November 10th.

Symantec, which makes the Norton anti-virus software and owns the identity theft protection company LifeLock, said Friday that it is severing ties with the NRA.

Wyndham Hotel Group said in a statement that it "ended our relationship with the NRA late previous year".

"I'm a life member of the NRA, I'm a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment, and my heart is also broken for what happened", she said. Under Obama, amid fears that his administration would seek more gun restrictions, these sales reached record highs.

This week's Roundup looks at the complex gun issue, including the influence the NRA has among Florida politicians.

LaPierre said Democrats such as House minority leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Sen. And they're discussing ideas for keeping guns away from those who have shown they may be a danger to themselves or others.

He said it should not be easier to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store.

In response, the NRA and Trump have suggested arming teachers who have received training to deter attackers, a proposal that has been met with skepticism by teachers unions and gun violence experts.

On Thursday, Trump bucked the NRA by backing raising the legal age for buying assault rifles to 21. Shares of gun makers were broadly lower on Friday. "I think the desire to act and do something meaningful right now seems to be what's going to win the day".
