Members of the NRA will soon not be able to make purchases using their NRA-branded Visa cards as with other, other perks.
According to those in the group, businesses deciding not to work with them are doing so it means to punish them. They know that there are people in the group who are doctors, lawyers, nurses, school teachers and so on.
When it came to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas on Valentines Day, the group blamed everyone but themselves. They blamed the school for not preparing for an attack from a gunman. Nikolas Cruz, the gunman in question, did buy is Ar-15 rifle legally. People who knew the gunman tried to contact authorities before the event.
