Airline company Delta had recently decided to cut their ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA). This is due to the highly politicized aftermath of the Parkland shooting last February 14th.
A statement released by the company read, “Delta’s decision reflects the airline’s neutral status in the current national debate over gun control amid recent school shootings.”
“Out of respect for our customers and employees on both sides, Delta has taken action to refrain from entering this debate and focus on its business. Delta continues to support the 2nd Amendment.”
The Georgia-based airline is now being stripped of its tax benefits, as the Evil Republican state looked down on the stance that Delta took.
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle said of the situation, “Businesses have every legal right to make their own decisions, but the Republican majority in our state legislature also has every right to govern guided by our principles.”
