In 1997, my Iowa neighbor's family was shot the same day a student at my work was shot. All died. Thank you to those cutting some ties with the National Rifle Association (e.g., Allied Van Lines, North American Van Lines, Avis Budget Group, Hertz, Enterprise Holdings (which includes Alamo, Enterprise and National), United and Delta Airlines, First National Bank of Omaha, others).
I hope that this list grows and that the NRA can go back to promoting gun safety rather than supporting gun manufacturers and extreme gun rights.
I also hope that the United States can take a stand toward practical gun use as Australia (John Howard) did after the Port Arthur massacre and the United Kingdom (John Major) did after the Dunblane massacre.
