Drain the NRA

The NRA is the lobbying group standing in the way of all reasonable gun safety reform. Their obstinance and conspiracy-mongering have caused countless preventable deaths, in order to pad the gun manufacturers’ pockets! In the wake of the Florida shooting, companies like Symantec and Metlife are starting to break ties with NRA. Here’s an action you can take to help more companies cut ties, and reduce the power and influence of the gun lobby:

1. Peruse this list of companies that are still in the NRA Business Alliance or offer an NRA member benefit: https://www.drainthenra.com/company-information-1

2. Pick a company on the list, especially if you are a customer.

3. Email and tweet at them asking them to end their association with the NRA.
