Companies Abandon NRA After #BoycottNRA Trends

Major brands are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association, according to multiple reports.

The move comes after thousands of teenagers across the country are calling for Republican members of Congress and President Donald Trump to enact stricter gun control laws after 17 people were killed at a high school in Florida on Feb. 14.

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, which offered NRA members 10 percent off their hotel bill, said it would be ending their discount program, according to Business Insider. 

Hotel chain Best Western also took to Twitter and confirmed its partnership with the NRA has ended.

First National Bank also ended its partnership with the gun lobby group.
