Earlier today Twitchy featured a thread about how activists went about pressuring companies like Delta, DICK’s, Kroger and others to drop their affiliations with the NRA. Here’s trick it’s said these activists employ:
So under this system, companies giving the NRA discounts are passive opponents to gun control activists. Get them to drop this discount. Make them neutral. And it's not like NRA members really *use* discounts much, so the companies will see no strong material argument against.

And presumably, if the anti-NRA activists can get the company’s CEO to admit they’ve moved one notch in the direction the Left wants, even better from the activists’ point of view:

Congratulations on your small victory, lefty activists. *Eye roll*
Changing nothing is how you remain neutral. Taking action is taking a side. The NRA had nothing to do with the shooting, and we're learning more and more what did. The NRA was a temporary scapegoat. You, @Delta, bought in and took a side. You want to be neutral? Change back.

They stayed “neutral” by playing right into the activists’ hands. Go figure!
Corporation engages in virtue signaling & drops discount for law-abiding Americans.
State reacts by stripping 40mil in tax breaks.
Discovering only 13 people used said discount:

No, it wasn't. It was extremely short sighted virtue signalling. https://t.co/HsPD0vfzjY
